Meanwhile, the promotion's worst kept secret has been confirmed with the UFC officially announcing the event will take place on Abu Dhabi's Yas Island. How will Chandler fare against the best lightweights in the world?

With the promotion's signing of former three-time Bellator lightweight best, Chandler yesterday evening, White explained how the Missouri native would also travel to Yas Island for the pay-per-view event - acting as backup for the lightweight title unification clash between Khabib Nurmagomedov, and Justin Gaethje. "He will be in Abu Dhabi on (Oct. 24) as a back-up in case anything happens to either one of these fighters in the main event". So it remains to be seen if he will still be fighting at UFC 254 in Abu Dhabi. "This stretch of fights is going to be insane and I can't wait".
