Commission Withholds Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Check, but Conor McGregor Paid

229 lived up to the hype as most of the fights on the main card, including the titular fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, was filled with quality action. "Looking forward to the rematch". That massive audience saw Nurmagomedov put on a handsome display of well-rounded fighting against the biggest puncher in MMA. He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus.

Prior to the fight between Nurmagomedov and McGregor being officially booked, "The Notorious" went to Russian Federation to attend a World Cup game in July and met with Putin. 'Why are people talking about me jumping over the cage? Even if you were the biggest Conor fan ever, you would at least have to respect him.

The wait is through and tomorrow night's (Sat., October 6, 2018) UFC 229 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, is at hand.

The same option is being considered for a McGregor-Nurmagomedov rematch.

McGregor didn't appear at the news conference.

UFC president Dana White implemented a later start time when Michael Bisping fought in Manchester, delaying the fight to 3am.


Ferguson and Nurmagomedov's proposed fight has fell through on four separate occasions but the former interim champion insists that he is the champion at Lightweight and that he deserves to fight the undefeated Russian. He looked great doing it.

But Nurmagomedov said he had been brought to a boil by McGregor's behavior since April, when McGregor infamously attacked a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and several other UFC fighters.

"You guys have no idea what we have to prepare for".

"He had the opportunity to walk out of that place a champion", White said.

Abdelaziz, who McGregor had called a "terrorist" in the build up to Saturday, suggested his fighter had been provoked by the comments the Irishman had made prior to them meeting in the octagon. They've been saying mean things for 18 years in the UFC.
