UFC 229 Press Conference Round 2 Schedule Announced Will Be Open To Public

UFC 229 Schedule Declares Second “Khabib vs. Mcgregor” Press Conference In Las Vegas Will Be Open For Fans

Next Sat. October 6, 2018, former two-division champion Conor McGregor will make his highly-anticipated return to the UFC Octagon, where he’ll challenge undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title which once belonged to him. Both fighters carry deep rivalry that has moved from trash talk to hotel-lobby altercations to felony charges in record time and no doubt that will finally be settled in the Octagon on October 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. If you look at as a total package, it just might be the biggest fight in the UFC history.

September 20th McGregor and Khabib faced off for the first time at a kick-off press conference for UFC 229 to promote their showdown. Despite the fact, the event wasn’t open to the public; still, Mcgregor manages to entertain the media with his outrageous trash talk. I guess with fear of chaos Mcgregor caused earlier this year at UFC 223 media day, Dana White and Co. had no choice but to keep the fight fans out of NYC presser.

Earlier on Friday, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced its schedule for UFC 229 fight week; all the usual events such as the ceremonial weigh-ins and open workouts were announced, but the surprise addition of a pre-fight press conference also added to the weeks’ schedule which will go down on Thursday (October 4, 2018). Mcgregor and Khabib will get to face again, and this time it will be open to the public.

The official press conference begins at 3 p.m. local time from the Park Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Therefore if you happen, to be passing through Las Vegas next Thursday and enjoyed the first “Khabib vs. Mcgregor” press conference, then you’ll for sure love the madness that will ensue next Thursday, October 4.
