In addition to McGregor vs Khabib, the UFC 229 co-main event will also feature former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson (-360) against Anthony Pettis, who is listed as a +270 underdog.

"It's more than fighting for the titles", he said.

McGregor said he expected to make about $50 million in a pay-per-view event that will likely shatter the previous UFC record of 1.6 million buys and will also make Nurmagomedov his biggest payday ever. You all know why you're here.

There's not much else that needs to be said at this point. McGregor is so unbelievably calm in there that it's actually a little bit frightening, and Khabib hasn't really been on a stage of this scale before.

McGregor's grudge match with the undefeated Nurmagomedov has been almost two years in the making and has the potential to be the biggest fight in mixed martial arts and UFC history.

Broadcast restrictions mean that fans in the United Kingdom who have subscribed to UFC Fight Pass will not be able to watch the bout live, only BT Sport subscribers will be able to see the live action. "I wait for no-one", the Russian said before asking the media to start their questions.

"You will never beat the f*****g Irish", said McGregor as the noise grew even louder. "I have to make weight". "I'm going to settle this the noble way for myself and then see what happens after that". "I think Conor wins".

McGregor turned up nearly 25 minutes late for the media conference, about 10 minutes after the Russian champion had left the stage.

Several thousand pro-McGregor fans packed a theater expecting to see a confrontation between two fighters who can't stand each other. "(Nurmagomedov is) too easy to hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out". I did not plan this, I tried to get here.

"All the time, he gets exhausted, he gives up", Nurmagomedov said. You just steam yourself in that sauna and soak you f--ing Dagestani rat.

The man tasked with the job of welcoming "The Notorious" back to the mixed martial arts world will be his successor at the summit of the lightweight division, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

That drew the ire of McGregor, who went after Nurmagoedov and his trainer.

The brash Irish superstar will be returning for arguably his greatest challenge to date in the form of undefeated current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

"I have a schedule", Nurmagomedov said. This man is an absolute monster on the canvas and there's no other way to put it, with his wrestling being viewed as his biggest attribute in this or any other fight. I'm going to aim between that man's eyes and this is never over.
