UFC 229: Khabib vs. McGregor press conference set for September 20 in New York
The UFC announced today that next week, September 20, a press conference with UFC President Dana White, Nurmagomedov and McGregor will be held at Radio City Music Hall in New York. The event will be closed to the public; only media will have access.
UFC 229 takes place Oct. 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. Nurmagomedov (26-0 MMA, 10-0 UFC) vs. McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) will headline the show.
The fight will mark McGregor’s return to MMA after his loss in boxing last summer to Floyd Mayweather. McGregor hasn’t fought inside the octagon since November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC’s first simultaneous two-division champion.
