This Saturday night, the UFC returns to Las Vegas Nevada’s T-Mobile Arena with what is being labeled (and rightfully so) its biggest fight card ever. What makes UFC 229 so big is the main event, which will have undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov going up against former lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor.
In the co-main event, former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis will be facing former interim champ Tony Ferguson. Ferguson is coming into the fight with a point to prove. “It’s been five months since my injury,” Ferguson said. “It took a long f**king time for me to be here. They took my belt, they took a bunch of zeroes from my pay check. How do you think I f**king feel? It’s all fun and games, right?” You can cut the tension with a knife.
It truly is a stacked card and I can not wait to watch this event take place. Mr. White, you have outdone yourself with this PPV.
The event comes to you live, this Saturday October 6, 2018 from Las Vegas. Check your local cable providers for times and prices.
