With UFC228 done and dusted, the MMA world can now fully focus on what is being billed as the biggest fight in the sport. On October 6th Conor McGregor will take on lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas, as he attempts to reclaim the title he won off of Eddie Alvarez almost two years ago.

MMA journalist Brett Okamoto broke the news on his Twitter account, revealing that both fighters will attend a media event at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on the 20th of September.
