Conor McGregor to return to UFC with October title bout

Conor Mc Gregor Celebrates

Conor Mc Gregor hasn't graced the Octagon in over 20 months

It's official. Conor McGregor will return to the Octagon and UFC on October 6 in Las Vegas for a now-anticipated fight against undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

McGregor, 30, hasn't set foot inside the Octagon since claiming the lightweight title 20 months ago in the main event of UFC 205, a card where he became the promotion's first simultaneous two-weight world champion.

McGregor took time off to face Floyd Mayweather Jr in the boxing ring in a blockbuster fight in August 2017, where he was knocked out in the 10th round. Nurmagomedov (26-0) won the Lightweight belt in Brooklyn on April 7 by defeating Al Iaquinta via unanimous decision, after McGregor was stripped of it for inactivity.

As sanctions bite, where next for Trump's Iran strategy?
Sanctions will also be reapplied to USA imports of Iranian carpets and foodstuffs and on certain related financial transactions. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he supports Trump's willingness to sit down and talk with Iranian leaders.

Conor McGregor will make his eagerly-anticipated UFC comeback as he attempts to wrest the lightweight title from the man who succeeded him as top dog in the division.

McGregor and his entourage stormed the Barclays Center loading dock and the Irishman threw a dolly through the bus window in search of Nurmagomedov.

McGregor was arrested, but was sentenced last month to perform five days of community service, avoiding jail time in a plea deal. Diaz says that White did not have his back while he was battling a lawsuit from his 2016 fight with McGregor. Mayweather vs. McGregor was an event first and foremost, and whether or not a competitive fight ever came out of it was never really the point. "For Khabib, who is undefeated and who is looked at as one of the best fighters in the world, beating Conor is massive for him", White said.

Local fire and police sent boats to rescue people to area shelters, including E.C.Glass High School and Sandusky Middle School. The dam at College Lake, adjacent to the University of Lynchburg , was built in 1934, according to the school's website .

As it played, Diaz abruptly left the presser he was at and tweeted "I'm not fighting on that show (expletive) the UFC".

To add fuel to the fire, Diaz's scheduled opponent at UFC 230, Dustin Poirier, also hit the internet to express the similar sentiment of not taking part in the fight.
