Broadcast restrictions mean that fans in the United Kingdom who have subscribed to UFC Fight Pass will not be able to watch the bout live, only BT Sport subscribers will be able to see the live action.

Conor McGregor and UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will come face-to-face once more tonight, October 4, at the UFC 229 press conference at the Park Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nurmagomedov had earlier been given a hostile reception from a largely pro-McGregor crowd and appeared to cut his session short in order to remonstrate with his foe's supporters. But it's his his young son who stole the spotlight, wandering around adorably on the stage and convincing everyone watching that he already has his dad's signature style.

McGregor and his entourage reportedly sought to confront Nurmagomedov following a press conference at the Barclays Center, claiming the Russian had intimidated one of the Irish fighter's friends, Artem Lobov.

EVEN for Conor McGregor, this was freaky.

I might have been too emotional in Senate testimony, says Brett Kavanaugh
Even though the report is not public, if there was a bombshell revelation in it about Kavanaugh, the Democrats would have said so. Mr Kavanaugh denies any wrongdoing and an important vote on his future is expected to take place on Friday.

It might have been wise for McGregor to apply earmuffs to his child for the next part of his speech. You all know why you're here.

"I'm not going to say we're going to do Mayweather-McGregor numbers", White said of a fight that sold 4.4 million pay-per-views.

Despite the layoff, McGregor has lost none of the swagger that, along with his fighting skills, has won him so much fame.

"I plan on knocking that man's nose right into the nosebleeds". Me and McGregor will be a super fight.

Unlike McGregor, who prefers striking to fighting on the ground, Nurmagomedov is skilled at getting his opponents down and forcing them into submission.

The White House has found "no corroboration" of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh . But those who said November's elections are "very important" oppose Kavanaugh's nomination 51 to 44 percent.

"I don't worry about him".

While Nurmagomedov and McGregor did not see each other on the stage Thursday, their mutual dislike was evident when they spoke about their fight on Saturday. "I'm only a few minutes late for f--'s sake". He doesn't want to be around me and these people. "I have to make weight".

He continued saying that Khabib is "too easy to hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out". For me, it's personal.

"There will never be peace here", McGregor said.

He said: "For me this is more than defending my title". I always say you should aim for peace but if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes. "This is never over; never, ever, ever over". This fight will go into history as the biggest grudge match in combat sports, and will most likely be the biggest MMA event of all time.
