This Saturday, October 6th, fight fans will witness arguably the most anticipated match in UFC history. “The Notorious” Conor McGregor will return to the Octagon after a two year absence in an attempt to retake the UFC Lightweight Title from current champ, Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov. At 26-0, Russia’s Nurmagomedov has been untouchable as a pro. But Ireland’s McGregor, the first man to hold two UFC titles simultaneously, will look take back the belt he never lost in the Octagon. While you wait for Saturday’s thrilling pay-per-view matchup, check out the promo video above.
