With the incredible bouts that happened in August, UFC fighters competing in September have a hell of a lot to live up too if they plan on matching that action. Luckily for us fans, they could surpass it, with the promotion putting on an abundance of exceptional fights this month. Don't worry if you're not sure what fights to watch, because we've highlighted the best.

We've got a pair of lightweight scraps which feature four of the very best currently competing at 155lb. UFC 155lb champion Khabib Nurmagomedov takes on interim titleholder, Dustin Poirier, in Abu Dhabi for the gold. The undefeated Dagestani's stranglehold on the division has been well documented, with the 30-year old smashing everyone who has been willing to fight him inside the Octagon.

However, Dustin Poirier has been on a violent run as of late, knocking out Justin Gaethje and Eddie Alvarez, before delivering a resounding beating to UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway. Will his incredible run of form be enough for him be the first to defeat the champion?

We've also got a sensational battle between two of the most vicious lightweights in UFC history, as Colorado natives Justin Gaethje and Donald Cerrone scrap in a bout which guarantees fireworks. We've only just scratched the surface for this month's fights, so read on to find out what else is in store.
