UFC 229 - Khabib vs McGregor

UFC 229 will see the return to the Octagon of former featherweight and lightweight World Champion Conor ‘The Notorious’ McGregor, in the lightweight championship bout with current undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

McGregor is out to regain the title he captured at UFC 205, when he was the reigning featherweight champion. The Irishman never defended the title, as he took some time off in 2017 due to the birth of his first son and bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Combat fans have long anticipated the fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov with the Russian standing as the only real competitor to the chirpy Irishman having dispatched Eddie Alvarez in 2016.
