UFC 294 is arguably one of the most anticipated events of the year, featuring a lightweight title rematch between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski, as well as a middleweight clash between Khamzat Chimaev and Kamaru Usman.
UFC 294 is scheduled for today, Saturday, October 21st, at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Volkanovski and Makhachev met in the cage back in February, where the latter won by a split decision. Chimaev and Usman, on the other hand, have never met in the cage before, though they’re both exciting fighters who are sure to put on a show.
