Former lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor will return from a almost two-year absence to face current titleholder Khabib Nurmagomedov. "Looking forward to the rematch". He came to Brooklyn and went after my bus. this is a respect sport, not trash talking.
Prior to the fight between Nurmagomedov and McGregor being officially booked, "The Notorious" went to Russian Federation to attend a World Cup game in July and met with Putin.
"He was strutting up, doing his thing and I could see his shadow".
The riot began when four members of Khabib's team jumped into the cage and reportedly began to attack Conor. I recommend any of you guys to go pick up a pair of gloves and hand wraps and spar somebody.
In the build-up to the UFC 229 main event, "The Notorious" predicted that he would be dominating the dialogue in Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. McGregor called Nurmagomedov's father a "quivering coward" during a boisterous news conference.
"The fans got an awesome fight and a great show".
But Nurmagomedov said he had been brought to a boil by McGregor's behavior since April, when McGregor infamously attacked a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and several other UFC fighters. McGregor appeared to be referring to a book written several years ago which claimed that Abdelaziz once worked as an informant for the NYPD and Federal Bureau of Investigation among U.S. Muslims in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. "But what are you going to do when a guy flies like a monkey over a cage?"
"He forgot for a split second - the same way I saw him over at [Floyd] Mayweather, when he was over at the presser - when I saw that, he doesn't want a piece of me.
The police did what they could do and the security did a great job of containing it", UFC president Dana White said in a post-fight media conference. He had the opportunity to walk out of that place a champion. "This is the first time this happened", White said.
