Twitter reacts to Conor McGregor’s return against Khabib Nurmagomedov

Twitter reacts to Conor McGregor’s return against Khabib Nurmagomedov

The 30-year old Irish superstar recently plead guilty to a single violation of disorderly conduct as part of a plea deal that involves no jail time and will not affect McGregor's travel visa.

McGregor, who once held two titles in the UFC, led a band of associates into Barclays Center in Brooklyn in April and vandalized a bus occupied by Nurmagomedov and other UFC fighters.

So should Nurmagomedov and McGregor put pen to paper in the next few days, their bout could very well be announced at the event.

The UFC dramatically announced the matchup on Friday with a promotional video to close a news conference promoting its slate of fight cards for the rest of 2018. "The Notorious" hasn't competed in mixed martial arts since wresting the lightweight title from former divisional champion Eddie Alvarez back at UFC 205 in 2016. However, instead of defending either the featherweight or lightweight title, McGregor opted for a boxing match with undefeated pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather.

"I'd love to fight in the [Madison Square] Garden but I believe this one will be in Las Vegas".

Giuliani said Trump and senior campaign officials did not know the meeting was taking place. Giuliani accused Cohen of "fooling, lying, deceiving everyone he talked with".

"It's time to roll", Diaz said following his own two-year absence.

"Khabib will be preparing for the fight in the U.S., in San Jose", he added.

Dustin Poirier, who Diaz is scheduled to fight at UFC 230 on November 3 at Madison Square Garden, jokingly chimed in with a similar tweet, writing, "I ain't fighting on that show either F the ufc". 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.

UFC 229 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be for Nurmagomedov's lightweight belt. "I already won that one twice", Diaz said before storming off the stage as the McGregor-Nurmagomedov presentation was aired.
