If Nurmagomedov wins, he will be crowned UFC lightweight champion.

The Irish fighter gate-crashed a media day on Thursday and caused chaos in the venue's loading bay that led to several fighters getting injured.

McGregor appeared in court in NY on Friday charged with assault and criminal mischief. Then it looked like Anthony Pettis would get the fight, but that didn't happen. Iaquinta weighed in at 155.2 pounds, so he cannot officially win the title since he was over championship weight, though UFC President Dana White indicated that could change. He has been replaced by American Al Iaquinta. Typically, Iaquinta would have an additional two hours to cut the rest of the weight, but by the time he found out he was in the running to take on Nurmagomedov, that time had passed.

However, the Irishman was first stripped of the featherweight title he claimed in 2015 and he has never managed to defended either crown after winning them. "Send me location. Of course, I am UFC fighter, lotta people follow me, I have to be ideal for example, but nobody flawless. when somebody like you, UFC fighter, talk about you bad, or he try to go bully with him, one hundred percent I'm gonna give him back". He is being arraigned right now and dealing with what he has to deal with.

CBS Sports will be live in Brooklyn, New York, all week bring you everything you need to know ahead of the fight as well as during the action and after everything wraps up at Barclays Center. "It's never happened in almost 20 years of doing this so we'll see". Nurmagomedov was originally slated to face the promotion's interim champion, Tony Ferguson, but Ferguson was forced out due to injury during fight week.

With his ability to smother opponents using his powerful wrestling skills, the undefeated Nurmagomedov is the promotion's rising star but Iaquinta is an excellent grappler and will provide a tough test. However, White later decided that Iaquinta made weight.
