Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov face each other for the first time at a press conference for UFC 229 Khabib vs McGregor which will be held on October 6, 2018 in Las Vegas.
Press conference was open only for media people and no fans, that is something that Conor did not want, as he said:
Where is the fooking fans at? That’s who we fight for, that’s who pays the bills… Bring the fans here…i did not get what i asked, so here we are (no fans)
Dana White said they could not bring the fans in because they do not want to have any problems here in New York.
However many fans have been outside, as it can bee seen in UFC Instagram post:
Conor said he is going to put Khabib down in the name of the Russian people, and he talked about Khabib’s manager who is now in jail in Russia. As a response to this Khabib said this is what i have expected. Let’s take a look:
When Conor faced Khabib, he whisper to him” ..you are dead, you are dead man… i can see blue lips… blue lips”
This press conference was streamed live on Madison Square Garden!
