The UFC just announced that the UFC 229 Official Press Conference will be held in New York. Let the madness begin…
If you’re any fan of Mixed Martial Arts you’ll know exactly what happened with McGregor back in April of this year. In an attempt to stick up for his teammate Artem Lobov. Conor sought out to hurt undefeated Lightweight challenger Khabib Nurmagomedov. He launched a dolly through the fighter bus window.
Instead, he only ended up harming UFC Lightweight Michael Chiesa and Flyweight Ray Borg. However, he also set up the biggest fight in UFC history between him and ‘The Eagle’. The incident saw McGregor put on trial for several charges. Only to have those charges cleared the other month. Chiesa more recently has pressed further charges and is attempting to sue McGregor and the Barclays Centre in NYC.
News just in that the UFC 229 press conference will be held in New York. Where all the madness began.
First reported by Brett Okamoto from ESPN. The colossal UFC 229 press conference will be held on the 20th Of September at 5 pm Eastern time in the Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
McGregor returning to New York after his incident helps him live up to his name of ‘The Notorious’ due to the incident causing a huge amount of backlash from the public.
This being announced in the wake of the insane training video McGregor just released certainly builds the hype even more than it already has.
I know there have been a lot of questions about this, so here's a big update …
Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will both attend a UFC press conference next Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in NYC.

A Silent McGregor
With the announcement of the press conference, fans will be expecting the McGregor we see at all the press conferences. The flashy, trash-talking McGregor.
But his recent silence on social media has set some thoughts that perhaps he will approach this one differently. Has Khabib broken the one we thought was unbreakable?
