"Same damn thing. I'm going to do fights that interest me or have meaning". Nurmagomedov also holds the UFC record for number of takedowns in a single fight, managing to bring Abel Trujillo to the mat on 21 occasions out of 27 attempts in their three-round contest in May 2013. Blah blah blah blah blah, when I end the fight, I knock him out in 13 seconds and then they give the belt back as soon as I walk out the Octagon in Madison Square Garden.

"So these kind of things irritate me", McGregor concluded. He's also interested in a trilogy fight with Poirier's upcoming opponent Nate Diaz, and in fights with UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and former welterweight and middleweight champ Georges St-Pierre.

"I'm already mapping out what's happening next in my head", McGregor told The Mac Life, per MMAFighting.com. Like they all fookin' are.

"I don't know why, Anderson Silva is a legend of the game, surely he wants a bit of cash".

Below is all of the information you will need leading up to the fight, including every episode of UFC 229 Embedded. "I'm here, let's see what happens next".

"These things irritated me, especially seeing what way it's going, who the belts are given to, who the people who are challenging for the belts, who the person who has the belt is facing to get the belt".

But Conor McGregor used this chance to troll Khabib Nurmagomedov too.

Twenty-three months since his last mixed martial arts bout, McGregor will bid to regain the UFC lightweight title when he fights reigning champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on Saturday night. Post-photo shoot, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov gets a first look at the custom jewelry he inspired. About a month or two ago in preparation for this, when that fight got announced as co-main, I was like man if Khabib bottles this fight like he has bottled many fights before, if he bottles this one, no disrespect to those other two but I don't give a f- about those other two, to step in, I think I would have just disappeared back into the shadows and got that man somewhere else outside of here. Against McGregor, Nurmagomedov finally gets his chance to show whether he's one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world or just a frontrunner against B-level competition. Let's hope Khabib Nurmagomedov will pass the scale. Some may be doubting McGregor who hasn't been in the octagon since defeating Eddie Alvarez in November of 2016 but, Conor has earned his right to fight amongst the elite in the world and there's a reason why he is the self-proclaimed best fighter in the world pound-for-pound. "There's this fight and the co-main (Tony Ferguson vs. Anthony Pettis)".
