Polarizing UFC superstar 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 undoubtedly be the biggest 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 in the Octagon since beating Eddie Alvarez through TKO (punches) in the next round at UFC 205 way back in November of 2016. That triumph was preceded by a vast majority decision win over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August of 2016 and that bout was a rematch after Diaz stunned McGregor with a second round rear-naked choke at UFC 196 in March of 2016.
30-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0) stands 5’10” with a 70-inch reach. The Russian is unbeaten in his career and comes into this title fight a unanimous decision win over Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 in April. I will not spill the beans too much by creating a pick , but I shall say, Conor McGregor is in trouble. He’s been out of action for a couple of years and he is fighting arguably the best fighter on Earth. I smell a submission loss coming for the loud-mouthed prior champ. Alright, so 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 could happen in this mad world of sports. You might just get that winning ticket you have been searching for.
