The only thing better than a Conor McGregor fight is a Conor McGregor press conference, and we’re getting one for UFC 229 today (Oct. 4, 2018) from Las Vegas, Nevada, at 6 p.m. ET. McGregor will be there, naturally, and so too will his opponent this weekend, Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, as well as a mob of fans in what will undoubtedly be a less awkward format than we dealt with at Radio City Music hall in New York City a few weeks ago.
You remember, right?

And who could forget this masterpiece:

The event goes down at the Park Theater in “Sin City” and is free and open to the public ... if you arrive early enough to get in. Fat chance. Nevertheless, doors to the venue will open at 2 p.m. local time with the conference starting at 3 p.m. local time. Those unfortunate enough not to be in town for UFC’s biggest pay-per-view (PPV) ever can come right back here at 6 p.m. ET to watch the event with us.
While you’re waiting, take a stroll down memory lane for some of McGregor’s best press conference antics with this exclusive MMA Nation video:
