  • Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Announced For UFC 229

The 30-year old Irish superstar recently plead guilty to a single violation of disorderly conduct as part of a plea deal that involves no jail time and will not affect McGregor's travel visa.

In a video announced posted to Twitter Friday, the UFC touted the highly anticipated matchup between McGregor and Nurmagomedov, with UFC President Dana White declaring "The fight is done". So what sort of food does a former two-weight UFC world-champion fighter eat?

Tickets for UFC 229 are sure to be a hot ticket with some insane prices now that the highly anticipated return of Conor McGregor has been announced.

The "Notorious" has not fought in the UFC since November 2016, when he beat Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title and became the first fighter to hold two titles simultaneously.

McGregor was of course last seen in the boxing ring as he was well beaten by Floyd Mayweather but he is clearly eager to head back to the Octagon to regain what he believes is rightfully his. If there was any doubt that he would return to the UFC, that doubt is now gone.

As it played, Diaz abruptly left the presser he was at and tweeted "I'm not fighting on that show (expletive) the UFC".

"Hey, man. I told Colin I wouldn't ask you for tickets, and he absolutely lost it!"

Before it was official that McGregor would fight Nurmagomedov in October at T-Mobile Arena, Diaz said he didn't view his fight with Poirier as a semifinal to set up a possible trilogy bout with the Irishman after they each won a fight in two 2016 battles.
