UFC 241 is all set to take place in less than two weeks from now and boy are we excited about it! The show features two amazing main-event matches as well as some of the best action we’ve seen in a long time. It comes just before UFC 242 which will feature Khabib vs Poirier. Furthermore, there’s always the shadow of a McGregor return!

Will We Get to See a McGregor vs Khabib Showdown at the event?
While it is highly unlikely that we are going to get a full-blown McGregor vs Khabib match at UFC 241, there’s a good chance that Conor McGregor might appear at the event and challenge Khabib (or whoever McGregor’s next opponent is) so that there’s enough hype about an upcoming UFC PPV!
For now, what we are waiting for after UFC 241 is the return of Khabib Nurmagomedov as he gets ready to take on Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
