Polarizing UFC celebrity and former lightweight champ Conor McGregor makes his inaugural reunite to the Octagon when he chooses on reigning Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in what will definitely be the largest MMA showdown of the year.
Khabib Nurmagomedov v Conor McGregor
When: Saturday, October 6th, 2018.
Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
Live Stream: UFC Fight Pass
UFC 229 — Lightweight Championship
Conor McGregor +135
Khabib Nurmagomedov -165
30-year-old Conor McGregor (21-3) stands 5’9″ with a 74-inch reach. The native of Ireland hasn’t fought at the Octagon since beating Eddie Alvarez via TKO (punches) in the second round at UFC 205 way back in November of 2016. That win was preceded by a vast majority decision win over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August of 2016 and that bout was a rematch later Diaz stunned McGregor using another round rear-naked choke at UFC 196 at March of 2016.
30-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0) stands 5’10” with a 70-inch reach. The Russian is unbeaten in his profession and comes into this title fight off a unanimous decision win over Al Iaquinta in UFC 223 in April. I won’t spill the beans too much by making a pick , but I will say, Conor McGregor is in trouble. He’s been out of action for two decades and he’s fighting arguably the best fighter on the planet. I smell a submission loss coming for the loud-mouthed prior champ. Alright, so that I spilled the beans. So what!
The only way we will know is on October 6th. In summary, keep in mind open for whatever since anything can happen in this mad world of sport. You could just get that winning ticket you have been searching for.
