UFC 229 is less than a month away, and the promotional rollout for the mega-card at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will begin in full swing a week from fight night on Thursday, September 20th 2018 with a press conference at Radio City Music Hall in NYC.
Undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor, and UFC president Dana White will all attend the live-streamed event while the press conference itself will be closed to the general public and is only open to credentialed media.
Nurmagomedov (26-0) will fight for the first time since defeating Al Iaquinta to win the now ‘up-for-grabs’ lightweight title at UFC 223. McGregor (21-3) returns to the Octagon for the first time in two years. He last defeated Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden at UFC 205 to win the lightweight belt while simultaneously holding the featherweight title.
Let the hype commence.
