    Conor working on his wrestling on facebook and Instagram, Irish Edmond posting clips of him analyzing Nurmagomedov, and then this: https://www.rt.com/sport/415699-ufc-russia-moscow-khabib/

    «The first-ever UFC show in Russia is set to happen as early as September, as the event has already been scheduled in one of the biggest arenas in Moscow, RT Sport has learned from the venue.
    Staff at Moscow's Olympiyskiy Stadium (Olympic Stadium), which has a capacity of up to 35,000 spectators, confirmed to RT Sport that a UFC show is booked at the venue for September 14 and 15.

    The UFC has yet to announce the news, but the possibility of a show in Russia was first raised by the promotion’s president, Dana White, at a press conference following the UFC 205 event at Madison Square Garden, New York, back in November 2016.

    Russia’s most popular fighter, undefeated lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was victorious on the UFC 205 card against Michael Johnson, has long been rumored to headline an event»

    Calling it now. McGregor will defend his lightweight belt against Nurmagomedov in Russia in september. This is going to be huge!

    Doubt we see a UFC event in Russia. Too much weird shit happens in that country with their sporting events.

    Case in point:


    Even fucking Wladimir Klitschko doesn't have a jab that powerful.

    Call him what you want, but when it comes time to work, Conor works. There should be no question Conor is fighting Khabib very soon.

    Hopefully he fights Tony first though, guy has earned his red panty night.

    That would automatically make Ferguson's interim belt null and void if the official champ is fighting somebody else you do realize that right?
