UFC 223 justly be called long-suffering. Originally Khabib Nurmagomedov was supposed to meet for the belt champion Tony Ferguson, however, six days before the tournament, the American was injured and was forced to withdraw from the fight. And the fight between these fighters is broken for the fourth time.
To replace him was ready to go champion Featherweight – Max Holloway. But during the weigh-in, when Nurmagomedov successfully underwent the procedure, it became clear that max was not allowed a medical Commission. After that, new York began the frenzy: the main fight was on the verge of collapse, and Habib did not understand with whom he will have to fight and whether the fight itself.
Considered candidates Anthony Pettis, but failed to agree financial matter – he asked for one million dollars. Then the Commission was not allowed to go into the cage, Paul Felder as he was outside the top-15 ranking.
Finally, the situation was saved by al Iaquinta, which occupies 11 th place. He has 13 wins, 3 defeats, and throughout his career, he defeated such fighters as Kevin Li, Jorge Masvidal and Diego Sanchez. The last fight he spent exactly a year ago – in April 2017.

Also in the tournament we will see some interesting matches: Scored Magomedkerimov against Kyle Bochniak and, of course, rose Namajunas vs. Joanna Jędrzejczyk, also for the title of the organization.
In addition, UFC 223 surround and sporty events. For example, attack Conor McGregor on the bus with the soldiers, which had to cancel three matches, including the Russian Artem Lobov, with whom the other day almost got into a fight Nurmagomedov. Irish was arrested and then released on bail of 50 thousand dollars. I wonder whether he will appear in the tournament and if so, how will it end?
