Conor McGregor to Fight in UFC 229 on October 6

At that stage, he didn't feel like a win over "the Notorious" would improve his resume that much. But with McGregor back in the octagon, and his mouth back selling the fight, there's a good chance that the personal bad blood between these two fighters leads to one of the highest-selling PPVs the company has ever had.

"I think that we're not going to have any problems with these guys".

"Let them fight alone, and decide everything there [in the cage]". Nurmagomedov had won the lightweight title UFC 223 in April. After that bout, St-Pierre relinquished the belt, citing a digestive issue called ulcerative colitis as his reason for being unable to defend it.

The 33-year-old claimed that the UFC wanted him to fight Tony Ferguson and later offered him a title shot at welterweight against Tyron Woodley.

The Canadian confirmed to Submission Radio that he is eyeing up a return in 2018.

"I'd love to fight in Madison Square Garden again, but I believe this one will be in Las Vegas". "What happened in NY, obviously if you look at what happened, everyone was loading onto the buses, everything was done, and our staff still handled it pretty damn well for what was going down".

UFC president Dana White made the announcement during a news conference Friday (Aug. 3), revealing that McGregor-Nurmagomedov would headline UFC 229 at Vegas' T-Mobile Arena.

"I would be interested in that fight". "That's a win-win situation".

Pep Guardiola Fearful That Raheem Sterling Will Leave Man City
City stormed to the Premier League title in record-breaking fashion last season, as well as winning the Carabao Cup. "We talked only about 'can I arrive on Monday instead of Sunday?' At this moment there is no problem for Hazard".

Should he be allowed to fight then?

"If it's a money fight, pay me the money", Nurmagomedov said.

"They will be afraid I will relinquish and I left the division in ruins".

For the record, GSP is leaning towards the undefeated Dagestani to keep his pristine record intact against McGregor.

The Stockton native said that he slapped Khabib and "whipped" Conor McGregor's ass.

Defeating a peaking Michael Bisping was no easy feat - especially given the fact that he had never once fought at middleweight before. That is where Khabib is the most competent at.
