A knockout for pubs

UFC octagon
UFC 242 takes place on September 7.


BARS which pull out all the stops to cater to customers looking to watch the highly anticipated Khabib v Poirier UFC match this Saturday (September 7) will pull in the punters, according to BT Sport.

The broadcaster has exclusive airing rights for the showdown, which takes place in Abu Dhabi and will begin at 7pm UK time.

Last year, lightweight champion Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov made headlines after defeating Conor McGregor in what’s described as a historic UFC fight.

Meanwhile, Dustin ‘The Diamond’ Poirier approaches the bout on the back of a six-fight unbeaten streak, having defeated Max Holloway via unanimous decision.

This fight – UFC 242 – will take place at The Arena, Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. UFC fans are said to be eager to see 30 year old Khabib return following last year’s victory.

BT Sport Box Office is available to pubs via channel 490 on the Sky platform and costs £100, excluding VAT.
