Mixed Martial Arts: Tardy McGregor angers Nurmagomedov ahead of showdown

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

So at 3:15 p.m., White, along with a packed theater, waited for Conor McGregor to show up.

"This guy talks (about) fighting against English, but his grandfather, Christopher McGregor, was with the English navy", Nurmagomedov said in remarks to Irish fans of McGregor this week.

Former two division champion Conor Mcgregor is a well known knockout artist and has a history of starching his opponents inside the Octagon.

"This is all part of the s*** that goes on leading up to a fight", White said.

While McGregor has shown a genius-level ability to fight against type, even with the right game plan, I'm not sure he can train his defensive wrestling hard enough to make up the difference against Nurmagomedov.

Conor McGregor accused Khabib Nurmagomedov of being "petrified" as he insisted his rivalry with the Russian will not end after this weekend's grudge bout at UFC 229. "I am coming to put a hole in this man's skull", he said Thursday of Nurmagomedov. "I'm going to take his head off", he said to the crowd, throwing in a few more choice words for the record. "I have to make weight". I think McGregor needs to take this fight.

"Why I have to think about him?"

Previewing Game 163 for the NL West Title
Marquez last faced the Dodgers all the way back on June 30th when he allowed just two hits and one earned run in eight innings. Enrique Hernandez also had three hits for the Dodgers , who finished the regular season with 13 wins in their last 17 games.

McGregor turned up nearly 25 minutes late for the media conference, about 10 minutes after the Russian champion had left the stage. "He doesn't want to be around me".

As the saying goes, every fight starts on the feet and that's where Conor McGregor would ideally like to keep this fight.

Nurmagomedov, though, referenced McGregor's grandfather's time with the British Merchant Navy. Iaquinta did little but survive, and Nurmagomedov was even able to handily beat him on the feet. (But) I did not plan this, I tried to get here.

So as for those two true outcomes, it looks like either McGregor knocks out Nurmagomedov in short order, or the Russian gets the fight to the ground and dominates for as long as he wants to.

He continued: "I give his whole team slap and no one say anything".

Khabib is the favourite at [1.63] at the time of writing but if you are planning on having a bet, he is likely to drift as the contest approaches with recreational punters betting on McGregor on the back of Media Day on Wednesday and the Weigh-In on Friday. F-- peace. There will never be peace here. "But if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes", he bellowed.

White jogged behind the lightweight champion to begin the presser, explaining that there was supposed to be a video played before the press conference began, and McGregor was in a vehicle on his way to the venue.
