Conor McGregor to Fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October

Conor Mc Gregor Khabib UFC

According to UFC president Dana White, former lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor will not be punished for the bus attack that almost decimated an entire fight card and sent the two-time champion to jail.

McGregor (21-3) made his professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather last August but he has not fought in the UFC since November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden.

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.

Nurmagomedov's last fight was held on April 7, defeating in the title fight American realtor al Iaquinta.

McGregor and his entourage stormed the Barclays Center loading dock and the Irishman threw a dolly through the bus window in search of Nurmagomedov.

Venezuelan president survives drone attack
Venezuela , a once-wealthy oil-producing nation, is in the midst of a five-year crisis under Maduro's socialist government. One of the drones was to explode above the president while the other was to detonate directly in front of him, he added.

McGregor won titles in Cage Warriors, transitioned into premier cage-fighting firm UFC, and continued to trounce his opponents.

McGregor is returning to UFC, and White said that they were waiting for his legal proceedings to conclude before moving forward.

McGregor ultimately received a plea deal and was sentenced to five days of community service and ordered to attend anger management courses.

The expectations around the upcoming fight have soared ever since the fight was announced on Friday by UFC president Dana White.

Nurmagomedov, the Dagestan-born Russian champion, has been one of the pound-for- pound greats of MMA when healthy, racking up 10 consecutive victories since joining the UFC. "For Khabib, who is undefeated and looked at as one of the best in the world, beating Conor is massive for him". The MMA company has two pay-per-views on the horizon, UFC 229 and 230, and Dana White booked two big matches for the respective events.
