Conor McGregor Claims Khabib's Manager Is A Terrorist

"They'll both be at the weigh-ins on time and we'll get the staredown when it actually matters".

The two meet Saturday night in what is expected to be the biggest fight in UFC history - a bout might even threaten the pay-per-view sales mark set past year by McGregor when he was stopped in a boxing match by Floyd Mayweather Jr.

White added: "All the numbers are tracking higher than Mayweather-McGregor and this fight is a global fight, the whole world will be literally watching this fight". The traffic is heavy out there, there must be a McGregor fight on.

Meanwhile, Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor is just a few days away and ahead of the Las Vegas showdown, "Mystic Mac's" forecast is in.

If Nurmagomedov was, he didn't show it. "He wants to start the press conference without him".

"I have a schedule", Nurmagomedov said.

"I'm starting a new weight class because I heard they already wanted to do it anyway, I'm like let's get it poppin". I have to worry about myself.

"If somebody is late, this is not my problem".

The final press conference ahead of UFC 229 was an unusual affair at the best of times, but it got odd when the Irishman went after opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager in a wild rant. It's a very interesting fight, especially because it's two strikers.

The president said , "She's shocked I called on her, she's in a state of shock" and laughs, along with his colleagues behind him. Vega later addressed the exchange on Twitter , saying she believed the President had clearly heard her questions.

"I don't need to wait for nobody, this is 3 p.m., fans are here, media is here", Nurmagomedov said.

It nearly did not matter, as Nurmagomedov was already sort of the uncrowned lightweight champion going as far back as 2015.

"I am starving for this man's head", he said. He was stripped of the belt due to his MMA inactivity, allowing Nurmagomedov to pick up the vacant strap with a unanimous decision victory over Iaquinta at UFC 223 in April.

The Irishman was relieved of the crown because of his hiatus from the octagon, having made a brief foray into boxing to challenge Floyd Mayweather in a highly lucrative contest in August a year ago. He's the biggest star the UFC has left after Ronda Rousey's retirement and is being counted on to deliver the biggest UFC card ever.

McGregor hasn't fought in the UFC since 2016 and his return couldn't come soon enough for the sport.

According to UFC president Dana White, this fight is expected to be the biggest in the UFC history and is trending to do three million buys. He has loudly proclaimed he will knock the Russian out, while at the same time promoting at every opportunity the new whiskey he is marketing from his native Ireland. Me and you. One-on-one. I'm going to aim between that man's eyes and this is never over. "There is nobody that is hungrier than me in this game".

Earlier this week, McGregor announced that he'd love to lock horns with the legendary middleweight, who is seen by many to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.

The public was admitted free to the event, and most of the crowd of about 2,000 was for McGregor, who suggested Nurmagomedov might have been intimidated by the surroundings. So then, if it's in the first or the fifth round, the submission win is there for the taking.

"I think I'm going to turn him into a bobblehead if I'm honest", he told The Mac Life.
