Nurmagomedov leaves press conference before McGregor shows up

Press Conference

McGregor and Nurmagomedov appear separately at the final press conference in Las Vegas ahead of Saturday night’s fight. Nurmagomedov took the stage at the Park Theater at exactly 3pm for a scheduled news conference with McGregor and UFC president Dana White. Nurmagomedov:

It’s 3pm, this conference is beginning. I don’t need to wait for nobody…Fans is here, media is here, everybody is here… I don’t think about him. I have a schedule… I have to make weight. I have to worry about myself.

Nurmagomedov answered questions for 15 minutes before leaving. White stalled for 10 minutes before McGregor finally arrived to the theater at 3:25pm. He received a standing ovation from the crowd and handed White a bottle of his new signature whiskey. McGregor:

I did not plan this. I tried to get here. I’m only a couple minutes late… He doesn’t want to be around me. He is petrified…There will never be peace here. I always say you should aim for peace but if you can’t aim for peace, aim between the eyes. I’m gonna to aim right between that man’s eyes and this is never over. Never, ever, ever, over.

Press Conference

McGregor and Nurmagomedov meet face-to-face at at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for the first press conference for their UFC 229 fight. With little under than three weeks to go, McGregor yelled at Nurmagomedov, who remained calm and quiet for the duration of the press conference. McGregor spent much of the press conference animated and threatening Nurmagomedov.

I’m going to truly love putting a beating on this little glass-jaw rat…He’s fought absolutely nobody. He’s in over his head. I’m going to pick him apart and absolutely maul him. He’s dead man walking.

Nurmagomedov said he will do his talking in the cage:

He can talk whatever he wants. He’s going to talk, I know. [Oct. 6] is most important when they close the cage doors. [Oct. 6], what are you going to do? I’m going to maul you.
