McGregor and Khabib will headline the stacked UFC 229 card on Saturday night in a scrap that will determine the lightweight championship and settle what has quickly turned into a bitter feud.

McGregor returns to MMA in a bid to reclaim a title that he never lost against the current champion, who just happens to have an unblemished 26-0 record and has never lost a round in the UFC.

The Irishman is still seething about Khabib’s interaction with his teammate, Artem Lobov, and the Russian is looking to finally retaliate after McGregor’s now infamous attack of his bus in Brooklyn.

As you can see, the storylines write themselves so all that’s left to know is how and when you can watch the fight of the year.
