UFC 229 Pre-Fight Press Conference Follows Its Own Script

Although earlier this week, UFC went on to book a women's flyweight title fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Sijara Eubank.

"It's good to be back", said McGregor, who hasn't fought since losing to Mayweather 14 months ago in a boxing match where he was badly outclassed.

Former two division champion Conor Mcgregor is a well known knockout artist and has a history of starching his opponents inside the Octagon. While that's not exactly something we're expecting to see from Khabib it certainly feels more likely than the Irishman grinding out a decision, and if Nurmagomedov gets exhausted, then Conor could go for the choke to really rubber stamp his dominance. You all know why you're here.

"The traffic is a little heavy, there must be a McGregor fight going on".

"He knew what he signed up for", McGregor said.

Once again, Conor McGregor showed up late to a UFC press conference. "I wait for no-one", the Russian said before asking the media to start their questions.

McGregor, accompanied by about 10 others, "threw a hand truck at a bus, causing an injury to an individual on the bus", Sophia Mason, a spokeswoman for the New York Police Department, said. I have to go make weight. I'm not going to wait. "I don't give a f*** about anything - any wrestling, any technique, any anything". I'm only a few minutes late.

And they're going to be talking about why their vote matters if they're angry about what happened" during the hearing. Heitkamp, meanwhile, noted that Trump himself called for a "broader" FBI investigation into the allegations.

But we aren't talking about "any other fighter" here, we are talking about Conor McGregor. "(Nurmagomedov is) too easy to hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out".

"They'll both be at the weigh-ins on time and we'll get the staredown when it actually matters". Then there's the fact that McGregor is one of the most important fighters of all-time; the combined star power of himself and Ronda Rousey got the Ultimate Fighting Championship sold for billions, but most importantly, he was the first fighter to extract every ounce of leverage he had over the promotion.

Asked whether he would look to make peace with Nurmagomedov and bury their grudge after the might, McGregor drew the biggest response of the day.

"I plan on knocking that man's nose right into the nosebleeds".

"To be honest, I don't want [McGregor] to go to jail". It nearly did not matter, as Nurmagomedov was already sort of the uncrowned lightweight champion going as far back as 2015.

McGregor is the challenger - and also the underdog - against the unbeaten Nurmagomedov, who won the vacant UFC lightweight title in April against late replacement Al Iaquinta to become the 155-pound champion. "He has to kill me to stop me".

"There will never be peace here". You're going to like me.
