    UFC 254 video: Cold open teases epic main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje

    Ahead of UFC 254 on Oct. 24, the cold open for the pay-per-view broadcast has already been released ahead of the highly anticipated showdown between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje.

    Sons of Anarchy actor Ron Perlman provides the voiceover as he details the path that led to the collision between Nurmagomedov and Gaethje to unify the UFC lightweight championship.

    With a perfect 28-0 record, Nurmagomedov has barely been touched during his UFC career, losing only a single round while decimating his competition. In his most recent title defense, Nurmagomedov soundly defeated former interim champion Dustin Poirier in a largely one-sided affair.

    As for Gaethje, he’s been racking up post-fight bonuses ever since he arrived in the UFC but he earned this title shot with a statement performance against Tony Ferguson back in May. That night he claimed the interim title but Gaethje has said the championship won’t feel real until he goes through Nurmagomedov.

    Check out the cold open for the UFC 254 pay-per-view ahead of Saturday night’s card.
