Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregorwill undoubtedly be the biggest UFC event of all time, with the returning McGregor bidding to take back the 155 lb Lightweight UFC title from the Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 6th October 2018.
The unbeaten 26-0 Khabib is an outstanding grappler, unique in his wrestling ability and ferocious with the ground and pound when he invariably takes the fight to the mat. McGregor is a true artist at the KO game, and that piston-like, almost shockingly good left hand is the path to victory for the Irishman.

Many UFC tipsters think that the McGregor Vs Khabib fight will end early either way, depending on if it stays standing or goes to the ground. However, there could be some cagey early exchanges and a real battle of the wills to stay in the fight. So it could rumble on to Round 3 before someone finds the tellings blows…
If McGregor can use his footwork to stay out of trouble from Khabib’s early pressure, he is likely to sting, hurt and possibly even finish the Russian fighter early, but certainly slow him down.
If he can also nullify the Khabib takedown threat and be patient, those telling shots will come. Even if McGregor is taken down early, he has the chin, resilience and ground game to stay in the fight until the round ends and they’re put standing again. McGregor can use his striking to get this done inside the distance.
