During this time of pandemic-induced lockdowns and fights being held behind closed doors, MMA fans have not had many pre-fight press conferences to watch over the last seven months.

This has changed for UFC 254.

Anticipated as one of the highest-grossing UFC pay-per-views to date, UFC 254 sees UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov put his title on the line against challenger and interim champion Justin Gaethje on Saturday.

Gaethje is seen by many as one of the few fighters with a skillset rounded enough to take on the dominant Dagestan native Nurmagomedov.

A big-time PPV deserves ample pre-fight build, so the UFC put on a press conference on the beaches of Yas Island, Abu Dhabi to celebrate.
