Conor McGregor is back, and it’s like he never left.
Ahead of their fight on October 6th in Las Vegas, Conor and his opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov faced off for the first time and needless to say it was a heated affair.
With a bottle of his own whiskey in hand, McGregor launched in tirade after tirade whilst a relatively calm Khabib took every verbal jab that the Irishman could throw.
Dana White uploaded a video of the pair’s face-off.

Citing the incident from July when the two men were involved in a “public disorder” which saw McGregor serve five days of community service in the United States, Conor claimed Khabib would be “dead right now” if he’d stepped off the bus that threw a metal dolly into.
Nurmagomedov currently holds the lightweight belt that McGregor was stripped of, due to inactivity, and this upcoming bout will see Conor return to the UFC octagon for the first time in nearly two years.
Here’s the highlights of the face-off in full.
