Conor McGregor's Lawyer Hints At Date And Location For Khabib Fight

McGregor is returning to UFC, and White said that they were waiting for his legal proceedings to conclude before moving forward.

The build-up and promotion for this match is going to be heated and images of the bus attack are going to be everywhere as the UFC attempts to break their previous record for pay-per-view buys, which was set in 2016 when McGregor fought Nate Diaz for a second time.

The biggest fight of 2018 will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 6, as "The Notorious" Conor McGregor returns in an attempt to retake the UFC lightweight title from the hands of unbeaten champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 229. A promotional video then played to promote the bout. It's gonna be a big fight.

GSP returned to competition in November after four years away from the sport to win the middleweight title with a submission victory in the third round over Michael Bisping at UFC 217. In the interim, Khabib Nurmagomedov has taken the lightweight division by storm. Nurmagomedov (26-0) won the Lightweight belt in Brooklyn on April 7 by defeating Al Iaquinta via unanimous decision, after McGregor was stripped of it for inactivity.

They set them gently on risers lined up inside the hangar as Pence stood watching with his hand over his heart. Experts say positively identifying the decades-old remains could take anywhere from days to decades.

This is going to be one hell of a fight!

McGregor first fired off an incendiary tweet and, following an alleged confrontation between his friend Artem Lobov and Nurmagomedov, gatecrashed the media day for UFC 223. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct in a fleeting court appearance, and was handed a punishment of five days' community service. As part of a deal with prosecutors McGregor was also ordered to undertake an anger management class. But with McGregor back in the octagon, and his mouth back selling the fight, there's a good chance that the personal bad blood between these two fighters leads to one of the highest-selling PPVs the company has ever had.

At the end of the UFC 25th Anniversary Press Conference, Dana White admitted that he lied earlier when asked that question, and he played a promo video announcing that the main event would be McGregor facing off against Khabib (neither fighter was in attendance at the press conference). But it seems time and no lack of contrition from McGregor has softened the UFC president's stance as he told ESPN: "Conor came and did what he did and didn't expect the results that happened".
