UFC 229 - Khabib VS Conor

2018-10-06

ABOUT

UFC 229

KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV VS. CONOR MCGREGOR

Current lightweight world champion Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov defends his title against the last man to hold it—the legendary Conor “The Notorious” McGregor at UFC 229 on Saturday, October 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

There's no hyperbole in calling the lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor the most anticipated fight of 2018. Nurmagomedov has been an unstoppable wrecking machine since first arriving in the UFC, where he's rattled off 10 straight wins without ever losing a single round en route to becoming the 155-pound champion.

Meanwhile, McGregor is the biggest superstar in the history of the sport, but his reputation isn't just built on being the best trash talker in the UFC. McGregor has built a gaudy resume filled with numerous high profile wins while also becoming the first simultaneous two-division champion in UFC history. McGregor has been away from the Octagon for nearly two years and he's anxiously awaiting the chance to get back the title he never lost in competition. The fight really brings together the best of mixed martial arts, as Nurmagomedov will undoubtedly look to employ his world-class wrestling and devastating ground game while McGregor will attempt to showcase his devastating speed, power and accuracy on the feet. This is one for the ages and it all goes down on Saturday night from Las Vegas.
