Conor McGregor to Fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October

The often-outspoken Irishman has not fought in the octagon since November 2016, when he became only the third man to capture UFC titles in two different weight classes by beating Eddie Alvarez.

McGregor and Nurmagomedov will meet in the main event of the UFC 229 pay-per-view show at T-Mobile Arena, the same spot where Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round of their one-sided fight.

That was the Irishman's last competitive fight but he has repeatedly made headlines, particularly when he was involved in an attack on a bus at a UFC 223 media day following a reported run-in between Nurmagomedov and McGregor's training partner Artem Lobov.

Well it seems like Conor McGregor's Irish lawyer may have confirmed the date and location for his bout with Nurmagomedov. As expected, Dana White hosted the UFC 25th Anniversary Press Conference, and he was joined on stage by a litany of MMA fighters, including Tyron Woodley, Darren Till, Nicco Montano, Valentina Shevchenko, Derek Brunson, and Israel Adesanya.

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.

So should Nurmagomedov and McGregor put pen to paper in the next few days, their bout could very well be announced at the event.

He is a formidable challenger for McGregor in a return from a 23-month break from MMA competition.

The UFC did not disclose the terms of the fight agreement.
