Weekend Warrior: Clash of the Titans at UFC 229

Dana White

The differences continue all the way through to the strengths of each fighter: Nurmagomedov is famous for his wrestling and grappling; McGregor is known for his striking.

Conor McGregor and his rival Khabib Nurmagomedov will face each other on October 6, 2018, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. "If somebody is late that's his problem".

There's also the incident in NY in April which led to McGregor being charged with assault after gatecrashing a UFC promotional event, at which the Irishman and his entourage were filmed throwing a metal barricade and hand truck at a bus Nurmagomedov was on. Apparently angered by a confrontation between Nurmagomedov and another MMA fighter who is a training partner of McGregor's, the latter stormed into a parking area underneath Brooklyn's Barclays Center in April, looking for Nurmagomedov. "He knew what he was signing up for, I've been later than this".

Conor McGregor (21-3) ODDS: Nurmagomedov (-160), McGregor (+150) It's good to have McGregor back. I have to make weight. On the other side, while Nurmagomedov's style requires more levels and time, it's also a basic game plan: get in on his opponent, and from there, rely on being one of the strongest wrestlers in the history of the sport. I'm only a few minutes late.

The public was admitted free to the event, and most of the crowd of about 2,000 was for McGregor, who suggested Nurmagomedov might have been intimidated by the surroundings.

McGregor was allegedly trying to get at UFC 223 main event fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov because the Russian had been involved in a hotel altercation with fellow fighter and friend Artem Lobov. "He thinks whiskey gonna help him?"

Nurmagomedov admitted the first defence of his title is not just business for him.

"To be honest, I don't want [McGregor] to go to jail. Same damn thing. I'm going to do fights that interest me or have meaning". He doesn't want to be around these people. For me, it's more than fight for the title. "We'll see. I'm training to fight though, for sure".

"F-- peace, there will never be peace here", McGregor said. "But if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes", he bellowed. "Never, ever, ever, over".

Ferguson says after his injury, he staved off talking to virtually anybody that wasn't part of his inner circle as he went through rehabilitation to get healthy enough to fight again.

The Irishman was relieved of the crown because of his hiatus from the octagon, having made a brief foray into boxing to challenge Floyd Mayweather in a highly lucrative contest in August past year.

It nearly did not matter, as Nurmagomedov was already sort of the uncrowned lightweight champion going as far back as 2015.
