The biggest fight in UFC history is finally here. Live from Las Vegas on October 6, UFC 229 goes down. The main event will feature the biggest lightweight title fight of all time. Current lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, will look to defend his belt for the first time against former two division champion, Conor McGregor. After the bus incident in Brooklyn during the week of UFC 223, this rivalry really began to heat up. Now it will all be settled in the octagon.
In the co-main event, former interim lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson makes his return from a nasty knee injury. He will take on former lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis.
Before the co-main event, we will see a light heavyweight bout between a veteran and an up-and-comer. Ovince Saint Preux looks to prove to Dominick Reyes that the top of the ladder isn’t as easy to get through.
Also on the main card, we will see a very important fight at heavyweight between two of the top five. Heavy hitters, Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov will battle it out for a possible title shot if they can defeat their opponent.
Finally, to kick off the main card, we will see a fight between two of the top fifteen strawweights. Michelle Waterson will take on Felice Herrig in an important fight at 115.
