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 well.
What was formerly a highly expected card comprising Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson fighting for its lightweight title was dismantled by injuries, bad weight cuts and an inexplicable attack from Conor McGregor, who will lose a name on the card without even stepping into the Octagon.
Shaheen Al-Shatti of MMA Fighting recapped all the volatility enclosing fight week:

So Tony-Khabib, however Tony’s hurt Khabib-Max, but Max can’t cut some more weight so Khabib-Pettis, but nah so Khabib-Felder, but Felder ai not rated and seemingly 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 changes to the major event. McGregor’s antics cost the card fights, as Artem Lobov-Alex Caceres, Michael Chiesa-Anthony Pettis and Ray Borg-Brandon Moreno were all scratched as a result.
What’s left is an interesting card with only nine conflicts, but it’s 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 competitor for Fight of the evening.
Here’s a look at the complete card:
