This evening the UFC hosted a press conference to mark the 25th anniversary of the company. Towards the beginning of the press conference, Dana White played down talk of Conor McGregor’s return fight and was extremely vague about the details surrounding the bout.
However, the rumours were true and a promo video announcing the fight was played at the end of the conference. The video can be found below:
Conor McGregor will challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC Lightweight title in Las Vegas at UFC 229. The event will take place on Saturday October 6th in the T-Mobile arena for what will be the promotions biggest fight of the year.
Will Conor keep his nose clean during the build up to the fight? Does Khabib have what it takes to walk through McGregor like most of his former opponents? Or will McGregor have an answer to the puzzle of Khabib?
