Tonight, Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov come face-to-face for the final time before fighting at UFC 229. The pair will main event tomorrow night’s pay-per-view from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. “The Eagle” will defend his UFC lightweight title against the Irishman, who hasn’t competed inside the Octagon for almost two years.
This morning, both McGregor and Khabib weighed in successfully and on weight during the official weigh-ins for the event. Later tonight they’ll participate in the ceremonial weigh-ins, which will feature a jam-packed arena, open to the public, of rowdy Irish and Russian fans who will get to see McGregor and Khabib stare down before their fight Saturday night.
McGregor will likely attempt to play his usual mind games, getting in his opponents’ face and shouting expletive-filled threats. How Khabib will react to the antics, just hours away from fight time, will be interesting.
