Khabib vs McGregor set for October 6

Conor Mc Gregor Celebrates Conor Mc Gregor hasn't graced the Octagon in over 20 months

As well as what Dana White has dubbed the "biggest fight in UFC history" there are several other must-see bouts coming up on BT Sport in the coming months, including Darren Till's welterweight title fight on 8 September.

The fight, announced at UFC's 25th anniversary press conference, will take place at UFC 229 and BT Sport is the only place to watch the Irishman's comeback in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

UFC President Dana White has officially announced that Conor McGregor will make his return to the octagon at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on October 6. "But the fight is done, October, Las Vegas, it's on ladies and gentlemen". It's gonna be a big fight.

McGregor (21-3) simultaneously held the featherweight and lightweight championship belts during his meteoric UFC career, but he hasn't fought in MMA since taking the 155-pound lightweight belt from Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.

Two words: McGregor's back.

At 26-0, Russia's Nurmagomedov has been untouchable as a pro, and his recent wins over Michael Johnson, Edson Barboza and Al Iaquinta have only strengthened his place as one of the greatest lightweights ever. "I already won that one twice", Diaz said before storming off the stage as the McGregor-Nurmagomedov presentation was aired. Yeah, we had a good time. Video footage showed McGregor hurling a hand truck at a bus on which Nurmagomedov was a passenger after a press conference at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Last month he was sentenced to five days of community service in the USA after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.

While appearing on Submission Radio, Georges St. Pierre discussed the upcoming Khabib & McGregor fight and indicated that he would be interested in challenging the victor of that bout but doesn't believe UFC will allow it.

Should he be allowed to fight then?

One of the primary reason for promoting this grudge match is what happened at UFC 223 media day, when McGregor with his members of entourage threw a dolly at the UFC fighter's bus where Khabib was also onboard, in apparent retaliation for Russian's hotel altercation with Mcgregor's training partner Artem Lobov few days before the event.

Well it seems like Conor McGregor's Irish lawyer may have confirmed the date and location for his bout with Nurmagomedov.
