Onor’The Notorious’ McGregor will make his Octagon reunite Saturday night to face undefeated lightweight champion Khabib’The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov at the UFC 229 major event at T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas.
This is the battle mixed-martial arts lovers are waiting for, one which pits two savages on top of the game and in the prime of their careers. Toss in a great deal of terrible blood, a wild bus assault that led to McGregor’s arrest in New York City earlier this season, and you get a dream matchup that is probably only the first chapter of the bitter rivalry.
McGregor has only lost once during his 10-fight UFC tenure, falling to Nate Diaz via second-round submission at UFC 194 at a welterweight contest that has been put together on less than two months of notice when then-lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos was forced off the card due to a foot injury.
The Dubliner avenged that defeat with a majority-decision success in their rematch in UFC 202. Less than three months later in the UFC’s introduction in NYC at Madison Square Garden, McGregor scored a second-round knockout win over Eddie Alvarez to catch the promotion’s 155-pound strap.
Since the Nov. 12 of 2016 triumph over Alvarez, however, McGregor has not stepped foot at the Octagon. He sensibly cashed in on a opportunity to fight Floyd Mayweather on Aug. 26 of 2017. McGregor lost by 10th-round KO into the undefeated Mayweather, but he set up himself for life using a payday that has been reportedly in the $100 million neighborhood.
