Khabib vs McGregor set for October 6

Khabib vs McGregor set for October 6

With the fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov seemingly inevitable, the question remains where and when will the pair face off.

McGregor himself has said recently that he would prefer to fight in Madison Square Gardens again, but conceded that he believed his next fight would be in Las Vegas. McGregor won titles in Cage Warriors, transitioned into premier cage-fighting firm UFC, and continued to trounce his opponents.

UFC President Dana White has officially announced that Conor McGregor will make his return to the octagon at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on October 6.

"I hope that there are no more provocations from McGregor", Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov told R-Sport.

That led to charges for McGregor, who escaped a jail term and criminal record after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct, paving the way for the bout against Nurmagomedov. They're bad mouthing me, saying I turned down fights.

McGregor has not fought in UFC since 2016, but his fame grew so quickly he was regarded as a good enough opponent for Floyd Mayweather's retirement bout - a fight McGregor lost, albeit valiently, in the 10th round previous year.

As for Nurmagomedov, he captured the UFC lightweight title back in April. The popular Diaz (19-11) hasn't fought since that majority-decision loss to McGregor in August 2016, but he agreed to fight Dustin Poirier in a lightweight bout in NY at UFC 230 on November 3. However, instead of defending either the featherweight or lightweight title, McGregor opted for a boxing match with undefeated pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather.

"It's time to go, so it's time to go", Diaz said. He blamed an unspecified lawsuit as a reason he was gone from the UFC for so long.

"Khabib will be preparing for the fight in the U.S., in San Jose", he added.
