Anthony Pettis – Nate Diaz

Everybody was keen on Nate’s return to the UFC. After Poirier pulled out of the fight against Diaz in 2018, he spent a full year without any opponent. Finally, during UFC 241, the fight against Anthony Pettis was the co-main fight of the night, right behind Cornier – Miocic 2. The fight was brutal, lasted 5 rounds, and saw Nate Diaz as the winner via decision. Shortly after the fight, it was announced that Nate Diaz will face Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 on November 2.

Anderson Silva – Israel Adesanya

The ultimate fight where two great warriors were measuring their strengths. On one side, you had one of the biggest legends in UFC history, Anderson “The Spider” Silva, and on the other side, you had the undefeated interim middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya. The two fighters went into the Octagon during UFC 234 and they were the headliners. Israel won the fight via a unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27) and earned the Fight of the Night award. Nevertheless, the event was legendary as we saw the great “Spider” still being at a top form even in his 40s.

Khabib Nurmagomedov – Dustin Poirier

After Nurmagomdeov’s win against Al Iaquinta, the next fighter that wanted to snatch the belt was Dustin Poirier. Khabib was still the undefeated champion in the lightweight division with a record of 27-0. Finally, the fight took place during UFC 242 on September 7. The fight between these two was the main event of the night. Nurmagomedov successfully defended his title and remained the undefeated champion of the lightweight division with a rear-naked choke in the third round. After the fight, Poirier expressed that he wasn’t satisfied with the fight and went on Twitter to ask for a rematch with Conor McGregor.
