Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Announced For UFC 229

Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Announced For UFC 229”

With the fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov seemingly inevitable, the question remains where and when will the pair face off. Graham Kenny posted to his Instagram story plane tickets to Las Vegas flying out October 5, with a return date to London Gatwick on October 10 along with the caption: "It's on".

UFC President Dana White has officially announced that Conor McGregor will make his return to the octagon at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on October 6.

McGregor has not fought in UFC since 2016, but his fame grew so quickly he was regarded as a good enough opponent for Floyd Mayweather's retirement bout - a fight McGregor lost, albeit valiently, in the 10th round past year.

McGregor also has resolved his legal troubles after throwing a hand truck at a bus containing UFC fighters during a one-man rampage last April at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Nurmagomedov (26-0) proceeded to overwhelm Al Iaquinta in Brooklyn to capture the lightweight belt that the UFC had stripped from McGregor. The former champion reached a plea deal with a NY court earlier this month to avoid jail time and deportation, which cleared the way for the former champion to compete in the Octagon.

McGregor, speaking with TMZ, revealed a deal for his comeback fight was near to completion nearly two years since his last appearance in the octagon. McGregor didn't immediately react to the bout announcement on social media.

UFC lightweight Dustin Poirier chats with Brett Okamoto about the decision of waiting on a potential title shot in favor of taking on Nate Diaz at UFC 230 in November at Madison Square Garden. "I already won that one twice", Diaz said before storming off the stage as the McGregor-Nurmagomedov presentation was aired. "I've never turned down a fight in my life", Diaz said.
