How to get Conor McGregor Vs Khabib tickets
As for how to get tickets for the hotly anticipated fight, they will go on sale this Friday August 17th 6pm Irish time, but are already on pre-sale now. General sale tickets and VIP packages can be purchased from www.axs.com and are limited to eight purchases per customer.
Meanwhile former sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi has predicted that McGregor will look for an easy way out against Khabib, claiming the fighter has "no balls":
Here’s the thing about Conor, I’ve said that he has no balls and he has a problem with this fight. Remember the Nate Diaz fight, when he shot in on Nate Diaz and got submitted?
In that fight against Nate Diaz though, he’s getting pummeled in round two and he’s probably gonna get pummeled for the rest of the fight, so what does he do?
He needs a way out of it because he doesn’t want to get beat up for four straight rounds. So what does he do? He goes, ‘If I take this fight to the ground, Nate will submit me and then it won’t look like I quit.’
Malignaggi's comments were more than likely brought about by McGregor recently posting a clip of the Irish man knocking down Malignaggi in sparring from last year, McGregor was preparing for his bout with Floyd Mayweather
