Looks Like There Is Still Some Hope For UFC 230 Main Card After All
UFC 230 Pay-Per-View is set to take place on Nov. 3, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y. with the main card is fully stacked, but it lacks a headliner title fight. Although earlier this week, UFC went on to book a women’s flyweight title fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Sijara Eubank.
Many in MMA community didn’t like the idea of putting on the lackluster title fight.
Former two division champion Conor Mcgregor is a well known knockout artist and has a history of starching his opponents inside the Octagon. If he did the same to Khabib Nurmagomeodv at UFC 229, he’d want to make a quick turn around to headline the upcoming UFC 230 Pay-Per-View event.
“I may want to spark Khabib and headline that Madison Square Garden card on November 3. That’s less than a month away from this one. I may want to do that one and that’s what I’m thinking about that to be honest,” said Conor during (Thurs., Oct. 4, 2018) press conference from Las Vegas.
To remind you Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz has been campaigning for an inaugural 165-pound title fight to headline at UFC 230, which UFC president Dana White shoots down, instead to book Valentina versus Eubanks.
If Mcgregor successfully gets past Khabib, there are chances he may get a nod, and this might not sit well with his formal rival Nate Diaz who stormed off the stage after his fight announced.
