The showdown between UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and interim champ Justin Gaethje has been expected for months, with the only question being when it would happen. Now the fight date is set.
UFC president Dana White told CNN on Tuesday that the fight will be Oct. 24, with no venue announced.
“That fight’s going to happen,” White said during an appearance on CNN. “Khabib vs. Gaethje, Oct. 24.”
