The UFC heads to Abu Dhabi for a stacked fight card from top to bottom at UFC 294. We have a lightweight main event fight between two of the best fighters on planet earth, lightweight champion Islam Makhachev and featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski as they rematch for the lightweight championship. Makhachev is coming off his first title defense where he beat Alexander Volkanovski in a razor-close unanimous decision. That fight at UFC 284 was one of the best fights of 2023 and after Charles Oliveira withdrew due to injury, Volkanovski stepped up on short notice to give us an even better main event than were initially looking forward to. Both fighters will be looking to claim the lightweight title and the top spot on the Pound-for-Pound UFC rankings.

In the co-main event, we have the return of Khamzat Chimaev who hasn’t been seen in the octagon since egregiously missing weight at UFC 279 back in September 2022. He was originally scheduled to face off against Paulo Costa but like Oliveira he had to withdraw from the fight due to a staph infection. Stepping up on short notice is the former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman who will be making his middleweight debut. Usman is looking to get back on track after losing back-to-back title fights against Leon Edwards meanwhile, Chimaev is looking to get the biggest win of his UFC career as he attempts to make a statement in his return to the middleweight division. A win from either fighter at UFC 294 can catapult them into title contention.
