McGregor returns to UFC

UFC says Mc Gregor will fight in October

McGregor was arrested, but was sentenced last month to perform five days of community service, avoiding jail time in a plea deal.

The popular Diaz (19-11) hasn't fought since that majority-decision loss to McGregor in August 2016, but he agreed to fight Dustin Poirier in a lightweight bout in NY at UFC 230 on November 3.

A out between these two rivals has been on the cards since UFC 223, when McGregor attacked a bus which contained Nurmagomedov.

"I hope that there are no more provocations from McGregor", Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov told R-Sport.

The same reporter later posted an update, saying that the goats would be returned to where they apparently came from, a company called We Rent Goats .

The UFC did not disclose the terms of the fight agreement.

McGregor was then asked if he'll fight Nurmagomedov before the end of the year, and responded by saying: "I believe so".

The last time McGregor was in the Octagon, he scored a 2nd round knockout over lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez to become the first fighter to hold two world titles simultaneously.

That would be Nate Diaz, whose own return after a two-year hiatus from MMA was also announced during the UFC 25th Anniversary Press Conference.

Trump renews threat to shut down government over border wall
And the president has yet to signal if the $5 billion that a House spending bill proposes for the border barrier would suffice. Government funding expires at the end of September, just weeks before the midterm elections.

White, who's experienced frustrating talks with Diaz and his brother, Nick, for more than a decade, said, "Stylistically, it's an incredible fight".

With that backstory in mind, the UFC has plenty of fodder to promote McGregor's Octagon return.

McGregor and Nurmagomedov will meet in the main event of the UFC 229 pay-per-view show at T-Mobile Arena, the same spot where Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round of their one-sided fight. "I already won that one twice", Diaz said before storming off the stage as the McGregor-Nurmagomedov presentation was aired.

"Khabib will be preparing for the fight in the United States, in San Jose", he added.
