Onor’The Notorious’ McGregor will make his Octagon return Saturday night to face undefeated lightweight winner Khabib’The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov at the UFC 229 main event at T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas.
This is the fight mixed-martial arts fans have been waiting for, one which pits two savages on very top of the game and at the prime of their careers. Toss in a ton of terrible blood, a wild bus attack that led to McGregor’s arrest in New York City earlier this season, and you get a fantasy matchup that is probably just the first chapter of this bitter rivalry.
McGregor has just lost once through his 10-fight UFC tenure, falling into Nate Diaz via second-round submission at UFC 194 in a welterweight contest that has been assembled on less than two weeks of notice when then-lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos was forced off the card because of a foot injury.
The Dubliner avenged that defeat with a majority-decision victory in their rematch at UFC 202. Over three months after from the UFC’s debut in NYC at Madison Square Garden, McGregor scored a second-round knockout win over Eddie Alvarez to catch the advertising’s 155-pound strap.
Since the Nov. 12 of 2016 victory over Alvarez, nevertheless, McGregor hasn’t stepped foot at the Octagon. He sensibly cashed in on a opportunity to fight Floyd Mayweather on Aug. 26 of 2017. McGregor lost by 10th-round KO into the undefeated Mayweather, but he set himself up for life using a money back that was reportedly in the $100 million community.
