Conor McGregor to Fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October

07 August 2018

McGregor and Nurmagomedov have a checkered history that culminated at the UFC 223 media day in NY when the Irishman infamously attacked a bus carrying Nurmagomedov.

Added Poirier: "We're going to show up, I promise you that". Nurmagomedov had won the lightweight title UFC 223 in April. These two have a heated rivalry, and that feud will be settled on November 3, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Unlike former two-division champion, Mcgregor had worldwide media appearances for his bout against Jose Aldo at UFC 189 and on a much larger scale the promotion of Floyd Mayweather bout, this time around there wouldn't be any world tour due to of tight time frame. "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". Legacy number one, money is there.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson agree $10 million showdown
Asked about the November match after his round Thursday, Woods said: "I have nothing further to add to it". Any one-on-one match that takes place between the two would not happen before that, ESPN reported .

UFC chief White has already said he is expecting the bout to sell in the region of 2 million pay-per-view buys, meaning it would beat the current record of 1.65 million for McGregor's second fight with Nate Diaz in August 2016.

"I would be interested in that fight". Derek Brunson had some momentum going for him in the UFC after claiming a two-fight win streak, but that momentum was stopped when he was knocked out in the first round by Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza last January.

Should he be allowed to fight then?

However, I fought at 170, I relinquished the title and I fought at 185, I relinquished the title.

Samsung Galaxy S8 price drops to only $430 on eBay
Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 , and supposedly its Galaxy Watch are just a week away with its launch event dated Thursday August 9th. This means that the phone will sport a slightly bigger display as compared to the Galaxy Note 8's 6.3-inch screen.

As well as what Dana White has dubbed the "biggest fight in UFC history" there are several other must-see bouts coming up on BT Sport in the coming months, including Darren Till's welterweight title fight on 8 September.

"If I have to bet, if I have to put my house on it, I would have to choose Khabib over Conor". Since his departure, Khabib has taken the division by storm, remaining an undefeated 26-0 as a fighter and 10-0 in the UFC. That's where Khabib is the most competent at. He has a problem to close the distance, but once he's got you in the clinch, he's very good. "So the odds are in Khabib's favour 60/40, I believe".

Trade tensions weigh on oil prices
China has however agreed it will not increase oil imports from Iran, in a move which would directly challenge the U.S. blockade. The controversial move was preceded by a deadly crush of Hajj pilgrims in September 2015, which killed more than 460 Iranians.
