Russian UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov will fight American Justin Gaethje in October 2020; UFC President Dana White confirmed the date of the fight.
White told CNN that the fight would take place on October 24.
The CEO of Dominance MMA Management Ali Abdelaziz, who represents Nurmagomedov, also confirmed to the TV channel that the fight would take place.
In May, Gaethje won a fight with Tony Ferguson for the UFC interim lightweight title.
Recall that in early July, Nurmagomedov’s father Abdulmanap died from a coronavirus.
