Conor McGregor returns to UFC with title fight in October

Conor Mc Gregor Khabib

McGregor is returning to UFC, and White said that they were waiting for his legal proceedings to conclude before moving forward. A promotional video was then screened to officially announce the bout, drawing a rapturous response from those in attendance as White added: "They're not here unfortunately". "These guys are going to fight the first week of October".

It's not hyperbole to say the fight will probably be the biggest-seller in the history of mixed martial arts.

Our two-year patience, however, is about to be rewarded - because Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov really is a ideal fight.

It's the flawless fight for McGregor to come back to, because it's the most risky.

Scattered protests in Iran as United States sanctions loom
But US President Donald Trump chose to reimpose punishing sanctions against Iran, whom he has accused of posing a security threat. Sanctions will also be reapplied to USA imports of Iranian carpets and foodstuffs and on certain related financial transactions.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov confirmed that his son would be preparing for the bout in the USA, and that Russian Federation "has the right to expect victory" from a man who is unbeaten in 26 fights in the UFC. "I already won that one twice", Diaz said before storming off the stage as the McGregor-Nurmagomedov presentation was aired.

The details of why the incident took place have never been made public, but it set-in-motion a insane couple days in Brooklyn that ended up with McGregor spending a night in jail. It's going to be a good fight.

McGregor first fired off an incendiary tweet and, following an alleged confrontation between his friend Artem Lobov and Nurmagomedov, gatecrashed the media day for UFC 223.

McGregor was arrested, but was sentenced last month to perform five days of community service, avoiding jail time in a plea deal.

Alisson Becker given provisional squad number ahead of first Liverpool start
The German still has the No.1 jersey ahead of the new season and Liverpool have yet to officially confirm what number Alisson will wear.

At the end of the UFC 25th Anniversary Press Conference, Dana White admitted that he lied earlier when asked that question, and he played a promo video announcing that the main event would be McGregor facing off against Khabib (neither fighter was in attendance at the press conference).

Well it seems like Conor McGregor's Irish lawyer may have confirmed the date and location for his bout with Nurmagomedov.

Unlike former two-division champion, Mcgregor had global media appearances for his bout against Jose Aldo at UFC 189 and on a much larger scale the promotion of Floyd Mayweather bout, this time around there wouldn't be any world tour due to of tight time frame.

Turkey dismisses USA sanctions over detained pastor, vows dialogue
This comes after the USA slapped sanctions on Turkish government officials earlier this week for their role in his capture. The pastor, who has lived in Turkey for more than 20 years, faces as many as 35 years in jail if found guilty.
