Conor is back: UFC says McGregor will fight Oct. 6 in Vegas

Conor Mc Gregor Khabib UFC

Fight UFC lightweight Habib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will take place on October 6 in Las Vegas.

McGregor and Nurmagomedov will meet in the main event of the UFC 229 pay-per-view show at T-Mobile Arena, the same spot where Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round of their one-sided prizefight.

McGregor had made his professional boxing debut a year ago where he fought superstar Floyd Mayweather in what was considered one of the biggest crossover bout.

McGregor and his entourage stormed the Barclays Center loading dock and the Irishman threw a dolly through the bus window in search of Nurmagomedov.

The 30-year-old later turned himself into police and last month pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, meaning he will serve five days of community service and undergo anger management classes.

In addition to McGregor's return, another UFC great is set to return.

That effort included sifting through data from her cellphone, social media accounts and a Fitbit, a physical activity tracker. Police say Tibbetts was last seen wearing dark colored running shorts and running shoes.

"This is a very important fight for both fighters", UFC President Dana White told ESPN. So what sort of food does a former two-weight UFC world-champion fighter eat?

His lightweight title was stripped and subsequently claimed by Nurmagomedov in April. They're bad mouthing me, saying I turned down fights.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov confirmed that his son would be preparing for the bout in the U.S., and that Russian Federation "has the right to expect victory" from a man who is unbeaten in 26 fights in the UFC. "For Khabib, who is undefeated and who is looked at as one of the best fighters in the world, beating Conor is massive for him".

The UFC did not disclose the terms of the fight agreement.

The bout, which will take place at UFC 229, is already being talked about as one of the fights of the year and promotional video for the fight has broken the internet in predictable style.

Oddly, Diaz later tweeted that he actually won't be fighting as part of the card.
