UFC 229: KHABIB VS. CONOR PRESS CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS, COMEBACK, SUPERFIGHT, MMA
- Published on: Sunday, September 23, 2018
- Slapped together some clips from the press conference earlier this week, enjoy.
Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov came face-to-face for the first time at a New York press conference ahead of their UFC 229 showdown. Lightweight champion Nurmagomedov welcomes McGregor back into the octagon with the two fighters facing the media in what was a fiery exchange. McGregor and Nurmagomedov have clashed numerous times in the last 18 months, including during the Irishman’s infamous bus attack incident, and the pair delivered fireworks.
The Irishman has not fought in the UFC for almost two years since he knocked out Eddie Alvarez to become the lightweight champion.
On that historic night, McGregor became the first fighter in the promotion's history to hold two titles simultaneously. But since then he has been stripped of both the featherweight and lightweight titles with Max Holloway winning the former and Nurmagomedov the latter. McGregor did of course take on Floyd Mayweather in a boxing ring last year, losing by 10th-round stoppage.
After another year out - and a shocking attack on a bus in New York, he will challenge for his old 155lb in Las Vegas on October 6. But first the two protagonists went head-to-head with McGregor dominating the event as expected...
Nurmagomedov is undefeated in 26 professional fights and claimed the lightweight strap by beating Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 in April, after interim titleholder Tony Ferguson pulled out with injury.
