Reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, coined the “Send Location” catchphrase in the wake of his Brooklyn bus attack, orchestrated by longtime rival and former 155-pound titleholder Conor McGregor, back in April 2018.

Well, now that McGregor is in Moscow, Russia, where he recently revealed the date of his mixed martial arts (MMA) return, the “Notorious” trash-talker sent his location and dared anyone looking for a piece of the action to swing by. Though part of me wonders if he just wanted to brag about staying at the Ritz-Carlton.
“Location, where’s my location? The Ritz-Carlton,” McGregor shouted. “I’m at the Ritz-Carlton hotel if anyone wants my location. Right here in downtown Moscow. But where is [Khabib]? I believe he is out of the country. I fly in, he flies out.”
McGregor continues to be mocked by the same Dagestani goon squad who attacked him at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, where “Notorious” was submitted by Nurmagomedov. That led to a post-fight brawl and a handful of suspensions for all parties involved.
As of this writing, McGregor is penciled in for a Jan. 18 return date, though an opponent has not been named. That said, the Las Vegas headliner is unlikely to include “The Eagle,” who is expected to defend his 155-pound crown against Tony Ferguson in March.
