What You Need to Know About UFC 229
UFC 229 promises to be one of the best fights of the year, and all eyes are on this lightweight fighter matchup. In his comeback fight, McGregor will take on wrestling champion Nurmagomedov. This past April, McGregor captured the nation’s attention when he was captured on video throwing guard rails at a bus that was transporting UFC fighters. Two of the fighters were hospitalized as a result.
The assault was an apparent confrontation of Nurmagomedov, who was on the bus at the time and who had slapped Artem Lobov, McGregor’s friend. Needless to say, when the two fighters meet in the ring in Las Vegas in just a few weeks, the atmosphere is sure to be charged.
Who Will Win UFC 229?
Which fighter will emerge victorious? It largely depends on how the fight goes.
McGregor is returning from almost two years away from competition. He’s a controversial fighter and is known for his trash talking. Worth about $34 million according to Forbes, McGregor spent a vacation in Ibiza in 2017, living life up with plenty of partying and even a jaunt on a yacht.
Nurmagomedov promises to be a challenging match for McGregor. He became champion in the lightweight division while McGregor was absent from competition. Nurmagomedov’s incredible strength and talents in grappling should help him to fend off McGregor – plus he has a title to defend.
McGregor: Whiskey Connoisseur
McGregor, who often toasts with whiskey after his fights, has unveiled his own brand of whiskey called Proper Twelve. McGregor made the announcement on Monday, September 17th via an Instagram post. He explained that he’s studied the art under his late grandfather, and has put more than three years of work into the development of this whiskey. McGregor stated that the whiskey is crafted “at Ireland’s oldest distillery” and is “made with the Isle’s freshest spring water and finest golden grain and single malt.”
According to McGregor’s post, his company will make a donation to the first responders in each district that a case of the whiskey is sold in. “These are the men and women who run into buildings while everyone else is running out. They are our real life heroes,” wrote McGregor.
