Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
TV: PPV
Live Stream: UFC Fight Pass
UFC 229 — Lightweight Championship
Conor McGregor +135
Khabib Nurmagomedov -165
30-year-old Conor McGregor (21-3) stands 5’9″ with a 74-inch reach. The native of Ireland has not fought at the Octagon since beating Eddie Alvarez via TKO (punches) at the next round at UFC 205 way back in November of 2016. That win was preceded by a vast majority decision win over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 at August of 2016 and that bout was a rematch later Diaz stunned McGregor using another round rear-naked choke at UFC 196 in March of 2016.
30-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0) stands 5’10” with a 70-inch reach. The Russian is unbeaten in his career and comes in to this name fight off a unanimous decision win over Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 in April. I won’t spill the beans too much by making a pick here, but I will say, Conor McGregor is in trouble. He has been out of action for two years and he’s fighting arguably the best fighter on Earth. I smell a entry loss coming for the loud-mouthed prior champ. Okay, so I spilled the beans. So what!
The only way we’ll know is on October 6th. In conclusion, keep your mind open for whatever since anything can happen in this mad world of sports. You could just get that winning ticket you have been looking for.
