UFC 229 Embedded Episode 3

McGregor is set to end a near two-year hiatus from the octagon at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night against the person who succeeded him as UFC lightweight champion.

After 15 minutes of answering questions while the crowd attempted to drown him out, the native of Russian Federation delivered on his threats to leave when McGregor never showed.

The Park Theatre, Las Vegas, Nevada is the venue, the UFC 229 main-event headliners will be there and yes, this time there will be a small army of fans present. I am siding with the latter here. But when Conor McGregor arrived 26 minutes later, Nurmagomedov was gone, saying he wasn't going to wait around for the tardy Irishman.

Many in MMA community didn't like the idea of putting on the lackluster title fight. Give me answer someone if you can. During that bout, McGregor was at the top of his game, landing vicious left-hand strikes that dropped Alvarez three times in the opening round before finishing him in the second. "The traffic is heavy out there", he joked.

"I don't even know how that man is in this f--ing country". If they're (UFC) trying to have me headline Madison Square Garden they don't got nobody else. He doesn't want to be around me and these people.

McGregor feels the same.

"Nurmagomedov's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, is a "[expletive] snitch terrorist rat", said McGregor.

The biggest name in MMA is also aiming for a big day.

The fight this Sunday has always been sold out and UFC president Dana White has been spruiking the strength of pay-per-view sales, which are expected to break the UFC record.

Nurmagomedov and UFC president Dana White arrived on stage at exactly 3 p.m. local time, when the event was supposed to begin. I'm starving for this man's head.

"I'm starting a new weight class because I heard they already wanted to do it anyway, I'm like let's get it poppin".

"Conor made a lot of money, I'm sure he had a lot fun and did what he wanted to do but no matter how much money you make, you can only sit at home for so long before you start to go insane".

Nurmagomedov, who is 26-0 and making the first defence of his title on Sunday, believes he's ability to stay composed in the face of McGregor's wild taunting has the former champ anxious. "Of course he going to be nervous". McGregor was doing an open workout - with fans watching - and sharing some typically hyped-up comments. But he rallied the crowd with a fiery speech. "I come out fast and aggressive". I don't think about him, I have a schedule. "[Expletive] it, I'm ready to fight this man".

Afterwards he told the cheering audience: "Saturday night: You're in for a show, trust me on that".

"You will never beat the f*****g Irish", said McGregor as the noise grew even louder.
