UFC 242 Media Conference Call Number Directed to Phone Sex Hotline


The Ultimate Fighting Championship will be holding the highly anticipated lightweight championship unification bout at UFC 242 between undisputed champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and interim titleholder Dustin Poirier on Saturday, September 7 at The Arena in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

Ahead of the pay-per-view, the UFC invited media members to speak with interim champ Dustin Poirier at a conference call on Tuesday, August 27.

When media members dialed into the conference line, however, they were in for an interesting treat.

“How does this happen? The #ufc sent out an invite to speak with Dustin Poirier today ahead of UFC 242 and the phone number was to a sex hotline,” Eric Kowal of MyMMANews.com. “Don’t believe me… call it”

The UFC acted fast, however, and sent out a correction with the correct number updated.

Nurmagomedov had his most recent outing was his fourth-round submission win over McGregor at UFC 229 in Las Vegas where he retained his title on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

With the win, Khabib advanced to 27-0 in his professional career. His 27 consecutive wins gives him the longest winning streak in all of mixed martial arts. Khabib first won the vacant lightweight championship on April 7, 2018, at UFC 223 when he scored a dominant decision win over Al Iaquinta in Brooklyn, New York. He became the first Russian to win a UFC title. The submission victory over McGregor was his first title defense.

The Dagestani champion became the first Russian and first Muslim to win a UFC championship thanks in large part to his training by his father, Abdulmanap. His father was a wrestler and trained in judo and sambo in the military before converting the ground floor of Nurmagomedov’s home into a gym. Khabib developed into two-time Combat Sambo World Champion before joining the UFC.

Poirier claimed the interim championship with an incredible effort against featherweight champion Max Holloway at UFC 236 in April 2019. He is currently on a five-fight winning streak which includes wins over former lightweight champions Eddie Alvarez and Anthony Pettis.
