Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Announced For UFC 229

The 30-year-old was ordered to perform five days' community service last week after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct following a disturbance at a UFC media day in April.

When asked about McGregor during the press conference, Diaz shrugged the subject off, reiterating that he's defeated the Irishman twice already (still believing he should have earned the decision in their UFC 202 bout that resulted in a majority decision).

Former two-weight world champion McGregor has wanted to face Nurmagomedov for some time.

Nate Diaz made his thoughts on the UFC's Conor McGregor announcement very clear on Friday.

That fact has led many to wonder when the most-anticipated fight in all of mixed martial arts will be announced.

McGregor (21-3) rose to prominence by first knocking out reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo in a record 13 seconds in 2015, then becoming the first to hold two belts in November 2016 by knocking out lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the second round at Madison Square Garden. Diaz vented his frustration that White supported McGregor while the Irishman was going through a similar circumstance with Showtime and Mayweather, but that White didn't give him the same support in public and also claimed that Diaz was turning down fights.

October 6th in Las Vegas is the date and location the UFC want for the fight according to MMA journalist Ariel Helwani, and that date would match up with Kenny's flight details.
