Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov Meet Again in New York, No Windows Smashed

They last time they were together, Khabib Nurmagomedov was sitting on a bus and Conor McGregor was smashing windows to get inside. This time, there was no smashing. This time, there was just whiskey and unkind words.

The UFC lightweight champ and the former lightweight champ met today at Radio City Music Hall in New York City to hype their upcoming clash, which will take place on October 6 at UFC 229. Since this is the biggest fight the UFC has in the works right now, of course the Dagestani and Irishman were put on a stage to talk trash to each other.

For his part, Nurmagomedov was pretty subdued… which is about what you’d expect. Ol’ Khabib isn’t much of a trashtalker, and there’s no way he’d ever out-talk McGregor.

McGregor was his usual self. He even brought a bottle of his new line of whiskey, and he coaxed boss Dana White to have a glass with him.

Notable Conor McGregor-isms from the press-only affair include:

  • McGregor complaining that there were no fans there, only media. (Obviously, this was done for security reasons, because the last thing the UFC needs is McGregor fans and Khabib fans going berserk and killing each other… which they would do.)
  • Tons of trashtalk about Nurmagomedov’s ties to Russian warlords and criminals, because yes, Khabib does have some connections to them.
  • Conor promising to break Nurmagomedov’s “rat jaw”.

Also worth noting is that when McGregor and Nurmagomedov squared off for the usual staredown, there were a handful of NYPD officers standing close by. I guess that whole bus incident left an impression, eh?

Here’s the video of the press conference.

Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov Set for UFC 229

It’s official! Former featherweight and lightweight champ (and part-time boxing enthusiast) Conor McGregor will face current lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

Now we’ll get to see if all that malarky with the Irishman smashing a bus window with a dolly equals hype for the inevitable pairing of him and the Dagestani.

We’ll also get to see if McGregor can stop Nurmagomedov’s wrestling… or, more accurately, catch Nurmagomedov on the chin while moving backwards. (Spoiler alert: McGregor totally can).

Here’s the official release:

The biggest fight of 2018 will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 6, as “The Notorious” Conor McGregor returns in an attempt to retake the UFC lightweight title from the hands of unbeaten champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 229.

The bout, which was announced Friday in Los Angeles, will air live on Pay-Per-View

At 26-0, Russia’s Nurmagomedov has been untouchable as a pro, and his recent wins over Michael Johnson, Edson Barboza and Al Iaquinta have only strengthened his place as one of the greatest lightweights ever. But Ireland’s McGregor, the first man to hold two UFC titles simultaneously, has made a career of achieving what some say is impossible, and this fall, he plans on putting a “1” in Nurmagomedov’s loss column while taking back the crown he never lost in the Octagon.
