Weekend Warrior: Clash of the Titans at UFC 229

08 October 2018

The problem? Nobody else was ready.

Addressing the crowd, he said: "Three days". I'm training and waiting for McGregor. You know what would be another great one?

White wondered whether McGregor would return to the UFC after a lucrative foray into boxing past year to take on former pound-for-pound kingpin Floyd Mayweather.

Other fights on the UFC 229 main card, scheduled to get underway at 10pm ET, include a Women's Strawweight bout between Michelle Waterson and Felice Herrig, a Light Heavyweight fight featuring Ovince Saint Preux and Dominick Reyes, and Derrick Lewis vs Alexander Volkov in the Heavyweight division. "I swear to God", McGregor told ESPN.com.

"There is way deeper s-- than just a fight on Saturday night", McGregor said.

Senate moves to final vote on controversial Trump's Supreme Court pick Kavanaugh
Murkowski said she'd use an obscure procedure that lets one senator offset the absence of another without affecting the outcome. Banks said Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley's statements about the offer during the hearing confused Ford.

"[At the] same time this is a money fight, the same time this is a very interesting fight, the same time it's a very personal fight and that's why I think it's going to break the pay-per-view record in UFC history".

"I saw a man that doesn't want to be here, to be honest". I'm starving for this man's head. From there, McGregor did what McGregor does better than anyone in the organization: talk.

There hasn't been any love lost in the build up to October 6 as both fighters expressed their disdain for the other.

"When a guy makes 100million United States dollars you don't know whether he's ever going to fight again", White said.

"There will never be peace here", McGregor said. "But if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes", he bellowed. "I come out fast and aggressive", said McGregor upon his arrival, before addressing the departure of Khabib who had left due to his lateness. However, he does have his doubts about him and expects his opponent to fade should the fight stretch into the fourth and fifth rounds.

Overall, he faced 137 balls and hit only four boundaries, not the most fluent knock by the world's No 1-ranked test batsman. After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too chose to join the run-fest.

"I have a schedule", Nurmagomedov said.

We're all facing - I'm sure all the Irish people here - are facing all this immigration stuff on the way over (to America). and then you've got this man with such a insane background. and he's walking around free. "There is nobody that is hungrier than me in this game".

The incident came shortly after UFC President Dana White announced that McGregor would be stripped of his 155-pound championship belt, which he won at UFC 205 in November 2016. MMA has always been a sport built more on spectacle and star power than a pure sports mentality, but McGregor stressed that enough that he was able to upend the UFC's entire matchmaking structure, setting a blueprint that seemingly every champion has gone on and tried to duplicate.

While McGregor was testing his striking skills inside the boxing ring and enjoying time as a newly cemented multimillionaire, thanks to the showdown with Mayweather, Nurmagomedov has stayed active in the Octagon.
