I hope we don’t see any provocation from McGregor - Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father

Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Announced For UFC 229

Conor McGregor to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in Las Vegas

McGregor will avoid jail time and instead serve five days of community service and attent anger management classes.

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.

McGregor and Nurmagomedov have a checkered history that culminated at the UFC 223 media day in NY when the Irishman infamously attacked a bus carrying Nurmagomedov.

So should Nurmagomedov and McGregor put pen to paper in the next few days, their bout could very well be announced at the event.

A man was almost gored after being caught on video taunting a bison in Yellowstone National Park , and he's been arrested. As the National Park Service warns on the official website for Yellowstone, "Wild animals are unpredictable and unsafe ".

McGregor has posted several photos on social media this week hyping his physical fitness in advance of the announcement, which neither fighter attended.

"I'm not fighting on that show", Diaz tweeted moments after stepping off stage, adding an expletive directed toward the UFC. However, instead of defending either the featherweight or lightweight title, McGregor opted for a boxing match with undefeated pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather.

"I'd love to fight in Madison Square Garden again, but I believe this one will be in Las Vegas".

Dustin Poirier, who Diaz is scheduled to fight at UFC 230 on November 3 at Madison Square Garden, jokingly chimed in with a similar tweet, writing, "I ain't fighting on that show either F the ufc". Also with Nate Diaz vs. Dustin Poirier confirmed for UFC 230, it'll be interesting to see if either fighter is part of the presser.

Urban Meyer Already Has a Path to a Comeback
Courtney Smith told Stadium, a sports network , that she told Meyer's wife in 2015 about the alleged domestic violence. Smith was sacked last week after an accusation of domestic violence against his wife Courtney came to light.

With that backstory in mind, the UFC has plenty of fodder to promote McGregor's Octagon return.

"Hey, man. I told Colin I wouldn't ask you for tickets, and he absolutely lost it!"

This is going to be one hell of a fight!

The Russian fighter's father and lifelong coach, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, says he hopes nothing similar to the incident in Brooklyn unfolds in the build-up to the fight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on October 6.
