New, 95 comments

HERE. WE. GO!!!!!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will hold a special pre-fight press conference today (Thurs., Sept. 20, 2018), bringing Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov together for the first time since last April’s Brooklyn bus attack. And what better place to get it done than “The Empire State?”

McGregor, who will try to recapture the lightweight title he never lost, challenges defending 155-pound champion Nurmagomedov in the UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, scheduled for Sat., Oct. 6, 2018, inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with “Prelims” on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

As for today’s presser, that goes down inside Radio City Music Hall in New York City promptly at 5 p.m. ET (assuming “Notorious” shows up on time, which he hasn’t as of 5:40 p.m. ET).

You can watch the proceedings LIVE right here in the embedded video player above. While the press conference is closed to the public (unless you’re packing this), fans in lower Manhattan can actually watch the action go down on the world-famous “Mega-Zilla” video screen in Times Square (details here). Or, you can just stick around here and we’ll share some highlights below:


The stage is set!

Slainte!

Seems like this is a must-watch:

Is McGregor going to snatch that belt?

This!

The McGregor effect is real ...

Uh-huh ...

Getting closer!

Someone, somewhere just lost a bet:

Better late than never!

Lots of belts ...

Where’s all that security?

Yeah, this was a dumb decision.

McGregor is fired up!

That didn’t take long ...

Going off the rails fast:

Sure seems like it:

Sums it up so far!

About that bus incident ...

Instead, it just got messy.

This was a good one:

He’s on a roll ...

But, overall, yeah ...

It’s come down to this:

A rare moment of clarity!

McGregor is going all-in:

The Irishman is sharp as a tack:

Prediction!

This really happened.

Oh boy ... he’s going all-in again:

McGregor has done his homework on Chechnya and Russia ...

Oh boy ...

Figures!

THIS WAS INTENSE!

And last but not least:

That’s a wrap!
