Conor McGregor Completely Overshadowed By His Cooler 18-Month-Old Son

  • Khabib Nurmagomedov stretches during an open workout in preparation for the Conor Mc Gregor fight

McGregor, 30, has not fought in the octagon since he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 to win the lightweight title and become the first fighter to hold two UFC belts at the same time.

What did you think when you heard Conor say he was interested in fighting you? Just past the 30-minute mark, McGregor finally arrived to a huge cheer and the former two-division champion answered a steady stream of questions. "I know you're going to love me".

But it is McGregor's bombastic personality and star power that drives the hype for the fight, much like it did the last time he fought in a boxing ring last August in a knockout loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.

McGregor, known to be notoriously late for such gatherings, blamed his late arrival on traffic.

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.

Dee Devlin showed off her baby bump as her one-year-old son took to the MMA open workout stage alongside his father, Conor McGregor.

Nurmagomedov grabbed the microphone even before White got on stage and said, "I don't wait for anyone". But just because he didn't want to wait for McGregor, it didn't mean the Russian wasn't thinking about McGregor. "I have to make weight and worry about myself". I will go into heavy detail. "I'm sure he's hunting for a few quid as well". He doesn't want to be around me, he doesn't want to be around these people.

Afterwards he told the cheering audience: "Saturday night: You're in for a show, trust me on that. (Nurmagomedov is) too easy to hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out". "We're gonna see", Nurmagomedov said. "Get him in the sauna and cook him like the little rat he is".

"I plan on knocking that man's nose into the nosebleed seats", said McGregor, who enters the Octagon for the first time in two years. According to CBS, McGregor tried to stick up for Lobov, a close friend, and apparently loaded a private jet with a group of friends and flew to NY to confront Nurmagomedov.

Asked whether he would look to make peace with Nurmagomedov and bury their grudge after the might, McGregor drew the biggest response of the day.

"He has to kill me to stop me", said the Russian. I always say you should aim for peace but if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes.

The truth is that the current UFC lightweight champion, Nurmagomedov is really a awful stylistic matchup for any fighter.

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.
