Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov Engage in Intense Face Off Ahead of UFC 229
For the first time ever, Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov came face to face ahead of their upcoming fight at UFC 229 on Oct. 6.
Following a heated press conference that saw McGregor remind everybody why he’s the most prolific trash talker in the world, the former two-division champion finally stared down Nurmagomedov on stage.
UFC president Dana White wasn’t taking any chances on the face off erupting into a full on brawl so he had several New York City Police officers on stage as the two fighters came eye-to-eye.
While McGregor was talking to Nurmagomedov the entire time, the undefeated Russian just stayed stoic.
Off stage, Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz began shouting at McGregor, which then resulted in the Irish superstar unleashing a tirade on him instead.
McGregor eventually posed for a few more photos before leaving a final message as he walked off stage while quoting a famous line from the HBO series ‘The Wire’.
“Don’t ever come at the king,” McGregor shouted. “And if you do, don’t miss”
