UFC 223 Fight Card: PPV Schedule, Odds and Predictions for Khabib vs. Iaquinta

The UFC 223 fight card was a moving target, to put it nicely.
What was formerly a highly anticipated card featuring Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson fighting for its lightweight title was dismantled by accidents, bad weight reductions and an inexplicable attack from Conor McGregor, who will lose a name on the card before stepping in the Octagon.
Shaheen Al-Shatti of MMA Fighting recapped each of the volatility enclosing fight week:

So Tony-Khabib, however Tony’s hurt Khabib-Max, but Max can not cut some more weight so Khabib-Pettis, but nah so Khabib-Felder, but Felder ain’t rated and apparently that things, therefore Khabib-Iaquinta, but Iaquinta can not win the belt since he wore shorts into weigh-ins.
Fun week.

Those were just the adjustments to the main event. McGregor’s antics price the card fights, as Artem Lobov-Alex Caceres, Michael Chiesa-Anthony Pettis and Ray Borg-Brandon Moreno were all scratched as a result.
What is left is an interesting card with just nine conflicts, but it is still worth checking out.
If anything, the co-main occasion between Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Rose Namajunas for the women’s strawweight name is the highlight. The rematch is a strong contender for Fight of the Night.
Here’s a look at the complete card:
