Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov Fight: UFC 229 PPV Info, Live Stream, Predictions, Betting Odds

The highly anticipated bout between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov is nearly here. They'll fight at UFC 229, scheduled for Saturday in Las Vegas.

The whole affair already got off to a contentious start. McGregor—a world-famous fighter who hasn't had a UFC fight for some two years—didn't bother showing up on time to news conference. The undefeated Nurmagomedov didn't take the kindly and left before McGregor showed up.

"I don't need to wait for nobody. This is 3 p.m. Fans is here, media is here, everybody is here," Nurmagomedov said, via ESPN. "I don't think about him. I have a schedule; 3 p.m. this conference has to begin because I have schedule. I have to make weight. I have to worry about myself. Why [do] I have to think about him, [if] he comes or not? If somebody is late, it is not my problem."

For his part, McGregor... well, he was Conor McGregor.

"[Nurmagomedov] knew what he f***ing signed up for. I've been later than this," McGregor said, via ESPN. "The traffic is a little heavy. There must be a McGregor fight going on. I don't know where he is. He's better off running anyway. ... He didn't say anything the last time. Whatever. It is what it is."
