Mixed Martial Arts: Tardy McGregor angers Nurmagomedov ahead of showdown

Dana White

We saw his last fight against Al (Iaquinta). He said that under other circumstances, without security staffers and police officers on hand, if anyone said such a thing to his face he'd "slap" his antagonist, but the manager asserted that he did not want to create unnecessary "drama" for his client ahead of the biggest fight of Nurmagomedov's career.

Khabib Nurmagomedov during a press conference for UFC 229 at Radio City Music Hall. "I know you're going to love me".

"When a guy makes 100million U.S. dollars you don't know whether he's ever going to fight again", White said.

McGregor, known to be notoriously late for such gatherings, blamed his late arrival on traffic.

"He knew what he signed up for, I've been late", McGregor said.

Broadcast restrictions mean that fans in the United Kingdom who have subscribed to UFC Fight Pass will not be able to watch the bout live, only BT Sport subscribers will be able to see the live action.

"Conor's not here yet and Khabib said he's not going to wait", White said after rushing out after Nurmagomedov.

"I have schedule. I have to make weight". He expressed his preference for face-offs to take place after the weigh-ins, saying that is "the one I'm interested in". It's a credit to McGregor's status as an all-time great that even against a dominant champion I'd give him a 40 percent or so shot of scoring a first-round knockout here.

Unemployment Drops to 3.7 Percent-Lowest Since 1969
The unemployment rate fell from 3.9 percent to 3.7 percent , lowest since December 1969, the Labor Department said Friday . Wages have grown 2.8 percent over the a year ago , down from last month's estimate of 2.9 percent .

Conor showed up nearly 30 minutes late to the event in Las Vegas - blaming insane traffic. He should have stayed put, he doesn't want to be around me and these people.

According to multiple witnesses, McGregor ran into the arena's loading dock and began hurling objects at the bus, which was taking a group of UFC fighters to a nearby hotel, ESPN reports.

"I think beginning of first round I have to be careful with him because he has good timing and good boxing but my wrestling is my pressure", Nurmagomedov said.

"I did not plan this", McGregor added. He didn't say anything the last time.

"I am starving for this man's head", he said.

While Nurmagomedov and McGregor did not see each other on the stage Thursday, their mutual dislike was evident when they spoke about their fight.

"F-k peace. There will never be peace here". You're going to like me.

The most famous name in UFC is facing the undefeated, lightweight champion in what has been billed as the biggest fight the sport has seen to date.

The man tasked with the job of welcoming "The Notorious" back to the mixed martial arts world will be his successor at the summit of the lightweight division, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
