October 6, 2018 UFC 229 Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada
Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Wrestler vs Striker Fight Preview
Undefeated Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor will fight to determine who is the best at lightweight. McGregor captured the lightweight title at UFC 205, when he was the reigning featherweight champion. McGregor never defended the title, as he took some time off in 2017 due to the birth of his first son and later venturing himself in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
This is McGregor’s comeback fight at UFC, Grappling which is a close fighting technique is one of McGregor’s weakness, like what happened in his first fight with Nate Diaz defeated him by Submission.
Khabib Nurmagomedov is a good in close fighting, if he will be able to take down McGregor the fight could be over in minutes, But he should be care because McGregor is good striker he usually wins his fights landing powerfull shot from outside fighting.
