The fight between former two division Champion Conor McGregor and current UFC Lightweight kingpin Khabib Nurmagomedov has been labelled the biggest fight in UFC history given the bad blood between the two fighters.
Everyone has been eagerly awaiting the press conference so both men can have a go at each other verbally – something Conor excels at and Khabib, surprisingly, hasn’t shied away from either.
Thanks to this heads up from Damon Martin, we know we don’t have long to wait now.
