Khabib exits after McGregor 'disrespect'

Conor McGregor just went off in his UFC 229 press conference - vowing to destroy Khabib Nurmagomedov. and claiming he'll be a billionaire by age 35!

Nurmagomedov would answer questions for 15 minutes before leaving, forcing White to stall for 10 minutes before McGregor finally arrived to the theater at 3:25 p.m.

The Park Theatre, Las Vegas, Nevada is the venue, the UFC 229 main-event headliners will be there and yes, this time there will be a small army of fans present. "I'm only a couple of minutes late".

Who do you think wins the fight on Saturday night between McGregor and Nurmagomedov?

Tony Ferguson's return is crucial to the lightweight division; Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov could be fighting for a title shot at heavyweight; and there are some interesting prospects throughout the card. When the bout was announced back in August, Khabib opened as a -200 favorite, while McGregor was listed at +160. "The traffic is heavy out there", he joked.

"At the end of the day when I sign up you're going to get a fight", McGregor said. "To come and shut this man up; a little rat, a little weasel, a little hard man in groups", McGregor said. I tried to get here.

But we aren't talking about "any other fighter" here, we are talking about Conor McGregor.

McGregor and Nurmagomedov's fight at the T-Mobile Arena has been billed as the biggest in the UFC's history as the Irishman looks to make a statement against the person who succeeded him as 155lb champion.

"F-- peace, there will never be peace here", McGregor said. I'm going to aim right between that man's eyes and this is never over. But the event also pits McGregor against arguably his toughest MMA opponent to date. "He wants to start the press conference without him".

There's also the incident in NY in April which led to McGregor being charged with assault after gatecrashing a UFC promotional event, at which the Irishman and his entourage were filmed throwing a metal barricade and hand truck at a bus Nurmagomedov was on. I'm not going to wait.

"I have schedule. I have to make weight".

"I don't feel nothing", he said. "Of course he going to be nervous". But he rallied the crowd with a fiery speech. "My doctors were there for me, that believed in me, that gave me the opportunities, that gave me the knowledge and the intuition to believe I can do what I can do, to be back in time, faster than what they told me".

"Why I have to think about him?"

"Now he is focused on his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov, after this fight I am ready for this challenge! Trust me on that". But just because he didn't want to wait for McGregor, it didn't mean the Russian wasn't thinking about McGregor.
