Everything that could go wrong did go wrong in the days leading up to UFC 223.

CBS Sports will be live in Brooklyn, New York, all week bring you everything you need to know ahead of the fight as well as during the action and after everything wraps up at Barclays Center.

He has to sort out his legal standing, and Khabib, of course, has to get past Iaquinta at UFC 223 tomorrow night, but if the stars do align, McGregor's insane antics may actually create a clear path to the biggest fight in the octagon in quite a few years. Iaquinta weighed in at 155.2 pounds, so he cannot officially win the title since he was over championship weight, though UFC President Dana White indicated that could change. He has been replaced by American Al Iaquinta in the title match.

So, in the last day or so, the fight card for UFC 223 has been reduced from 13 bouts to just 9... And now thanks to his underwear weight, he'll be fighting for a UFC title.

OR challenges citizenship question on census
The city of Philadelphia is also part of the suit, along with five other major cities and the bipartisan U.S. As noted in a 54-page complaint , the decennial US census has not delved into citizenship since 1950.

"It's a very unique situation that we're in". Nurmagomedov was originally slated to face the promotion's interim champion, Tony Ferguson, but Ferguson was forced out due to injury during fight week. However, White later decided that Iaquinta made weight.

Also down for decision on Saturday is a women's strawweight title rematch between American champion Rose Namajunas and Poland's Joanna Jedrzejczyk, whom she knocked out in stunning fashion in the first round to win the belt in November past year.

However, with the promotion quickly tiring of his antics, the Irishman may find that while he might well be able to win back a belt in the future, winning back fans may prove a lot more hard.
