After attempts to fill Tony Ferguson’s spot against Khabib Nurmagomedov, running through Max Holloway, Anthony Pettis and Paul Felder as options, the UFC has finally found a replacement fight.

Now, after a long morning of confusion, Al Iaquinta will step up to face Khabib in the UFC 223 main-event.

Iaquinta weighed in at 155.2lbs, ruling him out of the opportunity to become the Lightweight champion if he can beat Khabib. If Nurmagomedov is victorious, he will be crowned the new champion, and Conor McGregor will officially be stripped of his gold.

UFC 223 now has 9 fight total, where yesterday it was a full house of 13.

Many questioned the possibility of doing Felder vs. Pettis, however, they’re training partners and unwilling to fight one another, so they will be booked a new fight on a later date.

This is your new finalized fight card for tomorrow evening (April 7th, 2018):
