Florida News: UFC
UFC 229 was headlined by one of the most anticipated fights in the organization's history. The most popular fighter in the UFC, Conor McGregor, was looking to not only win back the lightweight championship he was stripped of but also hand Khaibib Nurmagomedov his first loss.
Many times after a fight ends between fighters who had bad blood, the two fighters embrace, with the fighters earning one another's respect after the battle the two just endured. This wasn't one of those times.
This fight isn't your average "these guys don't like each other" matchup. This is Russia versus Ireland. A Champion versus a former two-division champion. The hate is real between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.
