Video: Watch Episode 1 of Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC 223 vlog series


Khabib Nurmagomedov’s long-awaited crack at UFC gold finally takes place next month, when he meets Tony Ferguson in the UFC 223 main event.

Between injuries, fight withdrawals and more, Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) has had a long and treacherous road to his lightweight title fight against Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC). The final weeks are beginning to wind down, though, and “The Eagle” is documenting preparations for the biggest fight of his life.

Nurmagomedov has released the first edition of his UFC 223 video blog, which can be seen above.

UFC 223 takes place April 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson headlines the pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
