After all the talk, it's time to fight. Conor McGregor is back in the Octagon, Khabib Nurmagomedov is undefeated in the cage, and the two will go at it in the main event ofon Saturday night. The Las Vegas showcase is set to not only fill the T-Mobile Arena but unfold as maybe the most anticipated and highly-promoted fight in history of MMA. Whether it's the two fighters' apparent disdain for each other, the mystique of McGregor's return or the Irish contender's , Saturday night's tilt figures to be one for the ages.
UFC 229 is also on track to break records in terms of pay-per-view interest. Both McGregor and Nurmagomedov arein salary per the Nevada State Athletic Commission, but they'll also be compensated with a percentage of each PPV purchase for the event.
