He has already won the title of the world’s greatest fighter in the UFC – but when it comes to Conor McGregor everyone loves his showmanship just as much as his skills in the octagon.
Fans were worried they wouldn’t see the Dublin man talk down rival Khabib Nurmagomedov ahead of their highly anticipated fight, as there were rumours Conor didn’t want to do any press ahead of his return.
However, the UFC have now confirmed Conor and Khabib will do a press conference on September 20th.
The event will take place on Thursday, Sept. 20 at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

The event will be for media only and closed to the public. The last time both Conor and Khabib were present for a UFC event, Conor and his camp ended up damaging Khabib’s bus, which later got Conor arrested.
However, the Dublin fighter was released and later his felony charges dismissed, avoided any jail time and quickly agreed to the most highly-anticipated fight in UFC history.
Conor has been teasing fans ahead of the fight in Las Vegas on October 6th, sharing photos and videos of his training ahead of the fight night.
