I hope we don’t see any provocation from McGregor - Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father

Khabib Nurmagomedov has once again reiterated his desire to disfigure Conor McGregor when he finally gets his hands on the former UFC lightweight champion.

In the immediate aftermath of McGregor's bus attack, White, one of the 30-year-old's biggest supporters, cast doubt on his UFC future.

Since then, McGregor's return to the UFC has been teased but the two sides couldn't come to an agreement.

McGregor first laid the groundwork for his fight against Nurmagomedov back in April when he attacked a bus full of UFC fighters, including the Lightweight champ, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

McGregor has posted several photos on social media this week hyping his physical fitness in advance of the announcement, which neither fighter attended.

For McGregor (21-3), it will be his first MMA fight in almost two years and first time in fighting action since his professional boxing debut during a heavily-hyped fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. last August - which he lost via TKO in the 10th round.

It's possible neither company will be ready to fly astronauts until August 2020, the GAO said in its report. The arrangement isn't cheap; each seat on the three-passenger Soyuz costs more than $70 million.

The UFC dramatically announced the matchup on Friday with a promotional video to close a news conference promoting its fight cards for the rest of 2018. He only won it, though, after McGregor was stripped of the title due to inactivity. "But the fight is done, October, Las Vegas, it's on ladies and gentlemen".

In an interview with TMZ, Diaz said the lawsuit was settled a month ago and criticized the UFC for their lack of promotion. He blamed an unspecified lawsuit as a reason he was gone from the UFC for so long. "However, I think legacy-wise, I don't think he's the guy that legacy-wise".

Unlike former two-division champion, Mcgregor had global media appearances for his bout against Jose Aldo at UFC 189 and on a much larger scale the promotion of Floyd Mayweather bout, this time around there wouldn't be any world tour due to of tight time frame.

While St-Pierre has never made the cut down to 155 pounds before, he says it might be worth it for that particular fight, although he's not sure the UFC would give it to him.

"This is a championship fight right here ..."

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, has said he would be happy to see his client take home $10 million for the bout, according to R-Sport.
