McGregor, Nurmagomedov to fight Oct 6

Appearance announcement

White announces McGregor and Nurmagomedov will fight in UFC 229, in Las Vegas on October 6.

I wouldn’t say this is a crossroads fight. This is a very important fight for both fighters. 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. And obviously for Conor, coming back from a two-year layoff, in my opinion — and it’s crazy to say this because of how popular he is around the world — but he’s one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC. Everybody thinks because he speaks so well and gets so crazy and everything, it makes him sort of less of a fighter. It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen…When you talk about pound-for-pound, best in the world? This is a guy who is actually living proof for pound-for-pound. He [McGregor] jumps from weight class to weight class and fights people in different weight classes.

White to meet McGregor in Las Vegas

Appearance announcement

After he was not able to meet with McGregor in Liverpool, White says the meeting has been rescheduled to Las Vegas, and that he is planning for the Irishman to fight Nurmagomedov. He also says he has not seen McGregor since the incident in Brooklyn and that he is not involved in his legal defence in any way.

Conor and I are going to meet in Las Vegas,. I’m pretty confident [a lightweight title fight] is a fight that Conor wants, and I’m pretty confident that is a fight Khabib wants. So yeah, I could see that happening.
