  • Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Announced For UFC 229

That was until UFC president Dana White revealed the mega-surprise of the afternoon: Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title booked as the main event for UFC 229 on October 6 in Las Vegas.

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.

Our two-year patience, however, is about to be rewarded - because Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov really is a flawless fight.

Combat sports fans were expecting the UFC to organized a world tour to get McGregor and Nurmagomedov to promote their fight which is being billed as the biggest MMA fight in the history of the sport.

When asked by ESPN's Brett Okamoto whether he knew why Nate Diaz was upset, UFC President Dana White said: "I have no idea".

The 30-year-old was ordered to perform five days' community service last week after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct following a disturbance at a UFC media day in April.

Regardless of the wild antics that lead up to the fight, the two should make for quite a bout.

He is a formidable challenger for McGregor in a return from a 23-month break from MMA competition. McGregor's standing as one of the most bankable stars on the planet probably helped his cause, too, and the build-up to this event promises to be intriguing, at the very least.

The UFC did not disclose the terms of the fight agreement. Fight fans were waiting from so long for this fight to be official, and in fact, it will generate massive PPV record, which is now held by Mcgregor vs. Nate Diaz rematch at UFC 202.

Although Diaz alluded to unspecified legal troubles that kept him out of action, the veteran brawler also had waited two years in hopes of getting a highly lucrative third fight with McGregor.

The details of why the incident took place have never been made public, but it set-in-motion a insane couple days in Brooklyn that ended up with McGregor spending a night in jail.

"I'm not fighting on that show", Diaz tweeted moments after stepping off stage, adding an expletive directed toward the UFC.
