Conor McGregor will fight against Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov for UFC lightweight title

Conor McGregor will fight against Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov for UFC lightweight title

"However, I fought at 170lbs and I relinquish the title, I fought at 185lbs and I relinquished the title, I don't think the UFC will let me fight for the title at 155lbs". The announcement was made during the UFC's 25th anniversary press conference where the fighting promotion laid out the events for the rest of 2018.

Former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre has expressed interest in one fight that might be able to lure him to make a return to the Octagon under the UFC banner, which is fighting te victor of the lightweight title showdown between champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor that is slated to go down at the upcoming UFC 229 pay-per-view event. He then told reporters outside, "They'd better start acting right and start promoting me", and added that he was brought to that day's press conference late, per video from Postmedia's Danny Austin. BT Sport will keep you across all the build-up and the action on the night from Las Vegas.

Why is this fight so big?

These reports will provide all three clubs with renewed hope of capturing the French global before the transfer window closes. Barcelona are another club to have shown an interest in Kante but he is an unrealistic target for the Catalans at this stage.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has once again reiterated his desire to disfigure Conor McGregor when he finally gets his hands on the former UFC lightweight champion.

It's the ideal fight for McGregor to come back to, because it's the most unsafe.

Nurmagomedov's last fight was held on April 7, defeating in the title fight American realtor al Iaquinta.

Manafort attorney Kevin Downing says that Rick Gates will testify at the conclusion of the testimony of Manafort's tax preparer. At the end of the day, the prosecutors said they expected to have three more hours worth of direct questioning for Gates.

Nurmagomedov, whose rise to prominence has been more of a slow burner in comparison to McGregor, was touted as an opponent when his foe first became lightweight champion. It's a legacy upgrade and it's good money because it's going to be a big fight.

McGregor was arrested, but was sentenced last month to perform five days of community service, avoiding jail time in a plea deal.

In a video announced posted to Twitter Friday, the UFC touted the highly anticipated matchup between McGregor and Nurmagomedov, with UFC President Dana White declaring "The fight is done". Mayweather vs. McGregor was an event first and foremost, and whether or not a competitive fight ever came out of it was never really the point.
