We are just four sleeps away from witnessing one of the biggest title fights in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) history as Khabib Nurmagomedov will defend his Lightweight strap against Conor McGregor this Saturday night (Oct. 6, 2018) at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It’s a championship bout that riddled with bad blood stemming from Conor’s wild rampage in Brooklyn, N.Y., a few months ago, as “Notorious” trashed a bus full of UFC fighters in an attempt to get at “The Eagle.”
After a few legal arguments and contract negotiations, the contracts were signed, sealed and delivered for the two men to finally get it on inside the Octagon in a championship bout that is expected to shatter box office records for the promotion.
Prior to the much-anticipated showdown — which will see McGregor fight inside the cage for the first time in two years — UFC will premiere “Bad Blood,” an inside look at the rivalry between Khabib and McGregor.
The one hour special is will debut on tonight (Tues., Oct. 2, 2018) at 7:00 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT on Fox Sports 1.
