Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight elites Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor went to war last night (Oct. 6, 2018) at UFC 229 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The most dominate top position grappler in the sport squared off last night with his division’s nastiest kickboxer, and absolutely nobody could be certain which man’s style would dominate the other. Beyond the technical aspect, it was also the return of a man who never physically lost the title against an unbeaten champion. Then, there’s the whole personal nature of the bout — from the infamous dolly to Nuragomedov’s questionable ties back in Russia.
Whatever narrative appeals to you most is personal taste, but the fight was undeniably intriguing from all angles.
