In one of the biggest grudge fights in UFC history, Conor McGregor took Khabib Nurmagomedov back in UFC 229. A lot of things were said before the fight as well as during the fight. The fight is well remembered for its post-match brawl that took the headlines the next day. The brawl resulted in a suspension for both the fighters. However, the tension between both the fighter still exists as both have taken shots on each other on various occasions.
The UFC highly benefited from this drama. UFC 229 broke multiple records and was highly profitable for the company. With a little over a year after the fight, there is a good chance that these two fighters might come face to face at UFC 246.
Conor McGregor has not fought since his loss to Khabib. Though he was supposed to return in July 2019, an injury to his hand delayed the return. However, the biggest attraction in the UFC is set to return to the octagon in January. He returns against the UFC veteran Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. This event is already set to be a blockbuster with Conor in the main event. The seats in the arena are already sold out and with Khabib in the arena, this event will only get bigger.
Conor and Khabib face to face again!
According to UFC president Dana White, there is a chance that Khabib might be in attendance at UFC 246. In a recent interview, White said that UFC is trying to get Khabib to the USA for UFC 246. Though, it was not confirmed that Khabib will be in the arena. But this increases the possibility of Conor and Khabib coming face to face on the 18th of January.
Conor VS Cowboy Press Conference confirmed
Dana White also confirmed that there will be a press conference for Conor Vs Cowboy during the fight week. He also confirmed that Conor never denied attending any press conference contrary to the beliefs.
The post-fight brawl at the UFC 229 is still fresh in the memories of the fans. If Conor gets the job done against the cowboy and gets on the microphone to call out Khabib. This is certainly going to blow the roof off at the T-Mobile Arena.
