A lot of questions, predictions and rumors have been in the air, ever since Conor McGregor halted his UFC career to fight Floyd Mayweather. He has been away from the Octagon for last two years and people were just wondering if he would return, and if he does; whom would he be facing?
The feud between the “Russian Eagle”; Khabib Nurmagomedov and the “Notorious Irish”; Conor McGregor had been in the perspective for a long time as both of the superstars kept trash talking about each other on different occasions.
However, in a recent quarrel between Khabib and Conor’s training partner, Conor made a bold move and attacked the bus having Khabib Nurmagomedov, his team and several other UFC fighters onboard by throwing a metal sack barrow through the glass window.
Two fighters and a few officials were injured by this attack and as a result, arrest warrants were issued against Conor and his fellow attackers. This incident raised the existing hype and the picture of King’s return to the octagon became more questionable!
The hype was put to rest as Dana White announced an official match between Khabib and McGregor at UFC 229 during the UFC 25th Anniversary press conference. This might have been shocking for some UFC fans but many sports analysts saw it coming.
