McGregor himself has said recently that he would prefer to fight in Madison Square Gardens again, but conceded that he believed his next fight would be in Las Vegas.

As seen in the video below, and as MMA Fighting reported, Israel Adesanya will face Derek Brunson at UFC 230.

He continued: "I love NY city, to be able to be here free, as a free man. walking around this place.what a city". Derek Brunson did most of the trash-talking during the UFC press conference, and he repeatedly called his opponent skinny and claimed that it wouldn't take him long to knock Israel out.

The UFC did not disclose the terms of the fight agreement.

This is going to be one hell of a fight! These two talented fighters have no love loss between them, and fans are anxious for the bout. Poirier calls Diaz someone he's always wanted to fight in career and is unsure if Diaz actually wants the fight.

Our two-year patience, however, is about to be rewarded - because Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov really is a flawless fight. Going into the festivities, the assumption was that the sole focus would be on the return of Nate Diaz to the Octagon after over two years away, as he's set to take on Dustin Poirier in the UFC 230 co-main event in Madison Square Garden on November 3.

The highly anticipated match-up was announced on Friday after months of speculation, and has already been dubbed the "biggest fight in UFC history" by the head of the promotion, Dana White.

McGregor (21-3) and Nurmagomedov (26-0) are two stars with a beef to settle, which equals a license to print money in the fight game. Between the impressive skills that these two possess and their passionate feud, this is one of the biggest main events that the UFC has ever booked.

Mixed martial arts has been without its biggest star for almost two years.

LOS ANGELES Conor McGregor's two-year hiatus from the UFC will end October 6 when the electric Irishman will meet unbeaten Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight belt, UFC President Dana White announced today.
