The biggest fight in UFC history is just days away. In the main event of this weekend’s UFC 229 pay-per-view, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will defend his title against Conor McGregor. Khabib is undefeated in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career with a record of 26-0.
He has shown a dominant ability on the ground, where McGregor has struggled in the past. The Irishman, however, is one of the sport’s most elite strikers. Striking is an area where Khabib has shown major holes in his past several fights. This fight is the definition of a stylistic match-up.
Before they collide this weekend, however, McGregor and Khabib will participate in a pre-fight press conference tonight. Fronted by UFC President Dana White, Khabib and McGregor will jaw-off 48 hours before their fight. There are some major personal issues between McGregor and “The Eagle,” so things could get very interesting.
