“Don’t Sleep On This” is our regular segment, produced in the lead up to every UFC card focusing on a fighter and/or match up that should not be missed (aka, slept on). This week we’re talking about and previewing an entire card, possibly the card of the year.
Despite the ongoing preparations for his monumental UFC 229 title clash with arch rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, lightweight contender Conor McGregor’s legal troubles away from the Octagon appear to have reared their head once again.
The Dubliner’s criminal case for his involvement in the UFC 223 bus attack in the Barclays Centre at the end of July is now over, but one of the blue corner fighters involved in the incident, Michael Chiesa, has initiated civil legal proceedings against ‘The Notorious’ one.
Arguably the single biggest mixed martial arts bout in history has finally got a confirmed date. On October 6th, “Sin City” will play host to a lightweight grudge match between the so far un-rivalled champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov and the sports biggest household name: Conor McGregor.
