Onor’The Notorious’ McGregor will make his Octagon reunite Saturday night to face undefeated lightweight champion Khabib’The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov at the UFC 229 main event at T-Mobile Center at Las Vegas.
This is the battle mixed-martial arts lovers are waiting for, one that pits two savages on very top of their game and in the prime of their livelihood. Toss in a ton of bad blood, a wild bus assault that resulted in McGregor’s arrest in New York City earlier this year, and you receive a fantasy matchup that is probably only the first chapter of the bitter rivalry.
McGregor has only lost once through his 10-fight UFC tenure, falling into Nate Diaz via second-round entry at UFC 194 in a welterweight contest that was assembled on less than two months of note if then-lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos was forced off the card due to a foot injury.
The Dubliner avenged that defeat with a majority-decision victory in their rematch in UFC 202. Less than three months after in the UFC’s introduction 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, however, McGregor has not stepped foot at the Octagon. He wisely cashed in on a opportunity to fight Floyd Mayweather on Aug. 26 of 2017. McGregor dropped by 10th-round KO to the undefeated Mayweather, but he set up himself for life with a payday that was reportedly in the $100 million community.
