30-year-old Conor McGregor (21-3) stands 5’9″ with a 74-inch reach. The native of Ireland has not fought in the Octagon since beating Eddie Alvarez through TKO (punches) at the second round at UFC 205 way back in November of 2016. That win was preceded by a majority decision win over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August of 2016 and that bout was a rematch later Diaz stunned McGregor using another round rear-naked choke at UFC 196 in March of 2016.
30-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0) stands 5’10” with a 70-inch reach. The Russian is unbeaten in his career and comes into this name fight a unanimous decision win over Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 in April. I won’t spill the beans too much by making a pick , but I will say, Conor McGregor is in trouble. He’s been out of action for two years and he is fighting arguably the best fighter on the planet. I smell a entry loss coming to the loud-mouthed former champ. Alright, so that I spilled the beans. So what!
The only way we will know is on October 6th. In conclusion, keep your mind open for anything since anything can happen in this crazy world of sport. You might just get that winning ticket you’ve been searching for.
