Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway's UFC featherweight championship bout is expected to be the co-main event.

Meanwhile, Petr Yan will clash with Jose Aldo for the vacant UFC bantamweight championship in the third title fight of the night.

Khabib, who hasn't fought since his victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in September 2019, revealed his three winners of those fights on social media.

"Usman, Yan, Holloway," the 31-year-old Russian star wrote on Instagram.

Khabib was initially scheduled to face Tony Ferguson in an eagerly-awaited fight at UFC 249 on 18th April.

The Russian star's manager, Rizvan Magomedov, told TASS: "We have a prospective month -- it's September. The place of the fight and the exact date we don't yet know.

"Everything's still up in the air, as the dates of tournaments are still not confirmed. I must repeat that it's only a prospective fight date."

When asked who Khabib's next opponent could be, Magomedov responded: "Who else could be our opponent, other than Gaethje?"
