In case you didn't know..

The Irishman and his squad are literally in a war situation with the Dagestani fighting squad led by Khabib. McGregor and his teammates had trespassed into Barclays to retaliate against the Dagestani after he assaulted Artem Lobov. They will face each other on October 6, 2018, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

McGregor and Khabib addressed the media together for the first time before UFC 229 in Radio City Music Hall, New York. The UFC Boss announced after the presser that McGregor has signed a new six-fight deal with the UFC. He stated that the deal could make McGregor the most money in the sport, especially given his pay-per-view appeal.

UFC 229 Khabib v McGregor: Press Conference
Is it Khabib Time for real?

The second UFC 229 press conference was open to the public and packed with McGregor's Irish supporters.


The presser had started without Conor. Dana clearly was not prepared to start on time, though Khabib wanted proceedings to be on time.

Conor was seen nowhere near the building for 15 minutes, which provoked Khabib to the point where he staged a walkout from the arena. McGregor has no plans to make peace with any members of 'Team Khabib' as of now.

The Irishman dissed both Khabib and his infamous manager before an arena filled with thousands of Irish fans and millions across the world watching online.:
