UFC 254 – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW: When is it, where is it and how to watch plus fight card and latest odds

One of the biggest UFC fights of the year will take place on Saturday night as Khabib Nurmagomedov defends his lightweight title against interim champion Justin Gaethje.

The Russian remains undefeated in 28 fights but is facing what many believe to be his toughest stylistic matchup so far in Gaethje, who dominated Tony Ferguson to earn his shot earlier this year.

Here, Sportsmail tells you all you need to known ahead of the highly-anticipated showdown.
