Default Conor McGregor accepts Khabib Nurmagomedov fight in October

Quote:
MMA superstar Conor McGregor has accepted a fight date for a proposed bout with Russia’s Khabib Nurmagomedov, which the UFC proposes to stage in Las Vegas on October 6th, according to RT Sport’s source.

While it’s not clear at this point if the fight is going to happen in October or not, as both sides have yet to accept conditions, RT Sport’s source, who is familiar with the situation, reports that the Notorious Irishman is willing to square off with the undefeated lightweight champion and has given his ‘yes’ in negotiations with the UFC.

Among reported options for the fight, which might become one of the biggest in the promotion's history, there are also December 30 in Las Vegas and November 3 in New York’s Madison Square Garden, which Nurmagomedov is aiming for.

Earlier on Thursday, McGregor had pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct following charges stemming from an incident in Brooklyn, New York, in April when he caused criminal damage to a bus transporting several UFC fighters, apparently aiming to hurt Nurmagomedov.

The incident happened shortly after the Russian was filmed in an intense altercation with McGregor’s friend and sparring partner Artem Lobov in the fighters’ hotel days before the UFC 223 in Brooklyn, where the 29-year-old claimed his UFC championship belt, beating Al Iaquinta in five rounds.

Not official as of yet though.


As much as I despise Conor, Khabib leaves that giant head of his open far too much, which was evident in his last fight against Iaquinta. Conor's left is too quick and just may put Khabib to sleep.

Khabib has had hand picked opponents on his way to the title.

Who did he beat to get the title? Number 12 guy in the division.

Kevin Lee, Alvarez, Gaethje, etc all give him problems because they have some real wrestling.

lol he beat Michael Johnson and Barboza to get a title shot.

Who has he versed with any decent wrestling?

He only gets takedowns against the cage. Once he gets someone he can't push back, and has decent wrestling, he will struggle.

Tibau is not even a top 10 LW and he almost beat Khabib, not only did he stuff like 20 takedowns, he took Khabib down (briefly) twice and landed better punches.
