After falling just short in his latest conquest to defy the odds, a boxing match against undefeated legend of the squared circle Floyd Mayweather, fans and analysts alike now eagerly await to see what "Mystic Mac" has in store for us this time around at UFC 229.
This weekend's mixed martial arts bout, one of the most eagerly anticipated in recent years, is being shown live on BT Sport - before online streaming service Eleven Sports take over UFC rights from January 2019 onwards. "I have to make weight", he said, leaving the stage with his belt aloft and to the booing of McGregor's supporters. He will face current lightweight titleholder Khabib Nurmagomedov at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
With his fan base larger than ever, the trash-talking McGregor returns to the Octagon, headlining what could turn out to be the most-financially lucrative UFC event ever.
"It's good to be back".
The former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub is one of the most popular MMA personalities in the industry and is recognized as a repository for insider information about the combat world.
"I don't even know how that man is in this f--ing country". According to CBS, McGregor tried to stick up for Lobov, a close friend, and apparently loaded a private jet with a group of friends and flew to NY to confront Nurmagomedov.
McGregor mentioned in last month's press conference about how his ancestors fought the English empire and that his family name was banned for a century by King James. For me, it's more than fight for the title. However, even setting aside all the bravado and money, inside the cage, McGregor's probably among the Top 10 fighters of all-time and has an exciting style, to boot. I don't give an [expletive] about anything - any wrestling, any technique - anything.

Russian President Vladimir Putin calls poisoned ex-spy 'scumbag', traitor
During the visit, President Putin will hold delegation level talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow. With an eye on China, New Delhi and Washington have been building a closer partnership.
"If you're going to be late, like always he is, no respect, I'm going to say hello everybody and then go". I'm gonna change this Saturday night. Given McGregor's long layoff and Nurmagomedov's recent form, I have to favor the Russian here. "Anderson is a legend in the game".
Who do you think wins the fight on Saturday night between McGregor and Nurmagomedov?
Anthony Pettis has some interesting takes on the wild UFC lightweight title picture going into Saturday's UFC 229 event. I don't understand what he gonna do 6 October.
So how will this fight conclude?
"(It will be a) devastating KO.
McGregor, too, has been typically forthright.
"He's too easily hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out", added McGregor, branding his rival a "smelly Dagestani rat". He is very aware of this, which will increase his motivation and further fuel him to victory.
