UFC 229 ‘Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor’ - Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov stretches during an open workout in preparation for the Conor Mc Gregor fight

The UFC Boss began his customary Conor McGregor super fight hyping on "Jimmy Kimmel live" by stating that he was not hyping the card but McGregor did go to jail after the UFC 223 melee.

Pettis will have a strong case to fight for the title next if he can get past Ferguson, who is riding a 10-fight winning streak. Just past the 30-minute mark, McGregor finally arrived to a huge cheer and the former two-division champion answered a steady stream of questions.

[Laughs.] "You know, that's very interesting". And while Nurmagomedov's decision not bow to McGregor and instead shift his focus to making weight by leaving is a respectable one, the champion made the kind of decision that ultimately could cost him money by doing the minimum to promote the fight.

McGregor and his entourage reportedly sought to confront Nurmagomedov following a press conference at the Barclays Center, claiming the Russian had intimidated one of the Irish fighter's friends, Artem Lobov.

On Wednesday, crowds were all about Conor McGregor Jr., the Irish boxing star's 18-month-old son.

Nurmagomedov grabbed the microphone even before White got on stage and said, "I don't wait for anyone". McGregor's done nothing but make history seemingly every time he appears, so it says a lot that the undefeated Nurmagomedov might be his toughest test to date. "I have to make weight". He expressed his preference for face-offs to take place after the weigh-ins, saying that is "the one I'm interested in". "I don't give a f*** about anything - any wrestling, any technique, any anything". I am siding with the latter here.

Several thousand pro-McGregor fans packed a theater expecting to see a confrontation between two fighters who can't stand each other.

"I plan on knocking that man's nose right into the nosebleeds. (Nurmagomedov is) too easy to hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out". "He doesn't want to be around me". I did not plan this, I tried to get here. "We're gonna see", Nurmagomedov said. You just steam yourself in that sauna and soak you f--ing Dagestani rat.

White jogged behind the lightweight champion to begin the presser, explaining that there was supposed to be a video played before the press conference began, and McGregor was in a auto on his way to the venue.

Nurmagomedov commented on the altercation, telling MMAFighting.com that he didn't want McGregor to go to jail and would rather settle their issues fighting.

"There will never be peace here". When the bout was announced back in August, Khabib opened as a -200 favorite, while McGregor was listed at +160.

That's the lowest you can go?
