Conor McGregor And Khabib Nurmagomedov Can Finally Fight, Dagestani Sent An Offer!
It looks like there is nobody happier than Khabib Nurmagomedov after Conor McGregor’s team struck a plea deal for hooligan bus attack prior to UFC 223. Conor McGregor won’t go to prison, and this means two angry rivals can finally face each other inside the octagon!
Khabib issued a challenge to the best Irish mixed martial artist of all time on Twitter.
Upon hearing the news of Conor’s settlement, @TeamKhabib just issued me the following statement: "Glad that he stayed out of jail, because I wouldn’t be able to punish him in that case. Now he needs to bring his Irish team to MSG in November and finish our business."

“Glad that he stayed out of jail, because I wouldn’t be able to punish him in that case. Now he needs to bring his Irish team to (Madison Square Garden) in November and finish our business.”
But don’t worry, Khabib Nurmagomedov replied almost instantly!
There were rumors earlier that two rivals will fight at UFC 229, which is scheduled for October 6th. Conor was stripped of the title at UFC 223 when The Eagle defeated Al Iaquinta via unanimous decision and won the title.
Conor McGregor threw several items at the bus with UFC 223 athletes in April, but the day before, Artem Lobov and Khabib Nurmagomedov had a heated altercation, and Khabib challenged Conor to appear with his team and settle up the score. Conor McGregor was arrested after the attack on multiple charges, including two felony counts of criminal mischief.
McGregor was lucky today. He is still allowed to travel in the USA for fights. Since he pled guilty to one count of disorderly conduct, he accepted the following – five days community service, one to three days of anger-management course, restitution to the bus company whose buses were demolished, and a contact prohibition order to three people affected by his actions. The Notorious thanked the supporters outside the courthouse in Brooklyn and rapidly fled the scene in a black SUV.
Khabib Nurmagomedov was very angry because The Mystic Mac was absent from the cage. He was calling the fight against Irish for a long period of time, in order to determine who is the best UFC Lightweight competitor in the world. Their social media war is still in progress.
But the roadblock is off and Conor McGregor can finally enter the octagon. What do you think, can Khabib Nurmagomedov defeat The Notorious? Will maybe extra security be required? After all, there is a lot of bad blood between these two fighters, and even the weigh-in might be critical!
