The UFC 254 live stream of the main event is starting very soon, with a legendary battle of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje. Following on from his defeat of Connor Mcgregor and his win over Porier, Khabib is looking somewhat unstoppable. With 28 wins and not a single loss, the wrestling expert is proving to be one of UFC's greatest fighters of all time.
But if he was to lose to anyone in his weight league, Justin Gaethje seems like the best bet. In fact, due to Gaethje's expert skills in wrestling and grappling, a UFC 254 live stream could finally see Khabib lose his record as the longest UFC streak of all time. So keep reading if you want to find out how to watch Khabib vs Gaethje online.
While that fight alone is headline-worthy to say the least, the co-main is also highly promising, putting Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannoier against each other in a Middleweight bout.
Whittaker is an ex-champion with an incredibly well-rounded game. He is strong when it comes to wrestling, punches, kicks, stamina, and well, every section of a UFC skill set. With six wins through submission and 11 knockouts through kicks or punches, Whittaker keeps a fight fluid.
His competitor - Jared Cannoier - is an underdog if there ever was one. Every fight he is expected to lose and every time, he proves people wrong. Could this weekend be the same? You'll have to watch a UFC 254 live stream to find out.

Why is Khabib vs Gaethje an exciting fight?
Even if you're the most casual of UFC supporters, Khabib is a fighter you are likely to know with a level of worldwide fame matched only by the man he defeated - Connor McGregor.
Considering his undefeated position with 28 wins, his hold over the longest active streak in UFC and multiple title defences, it is pretty understandable where his popularity comes from.
However, the reason this fight is so exciting is down to Gaethje's wrestling and grappling background. Khabib is a fierce wrestler and grappler which has been what has seen him secure wins over so many impressive stand up fighters.
Gaethje is one of the few fighters in the same weight league as Khabib that could match or even beat him in on mat, finally ending the longest active streak in the UFC.
Who is fighting in the UFC 254 co-main event?
The co-main event will see Robert Whittaker vs Jared Cannoier fighting in the Middleweight bracket. While this fight isn't quite as headline deserving as Khabib and Gaethje, it is still one you will not want to miss.
Robert Whittaker is easily one of the most well-balanced fighters in his weight class. He has great condition, is strong on his feet and especially strong as a wrestler and as a former champion, has been on the top of the league before.
Coming off a win to the confident Darren Till, Whittaker is looking like the expected winner here. Cannonier is somewhat of an underdog...in every fight he's been in but continues to win those fights he wasn't expected to.
Like the main event, this fight is exciting based on its ability to re-shape the weight class and potentially put Whittaker back on his mission for the top.
