This Week's Best Bets. It is the fight MMA fans have been desperate to see for quite some time, and on October 6 it will become a reality when former two-weight champion Conor McGregor ends his UFC exile and challenges unbeaten lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC McGregor, of course, is returning to MMA action for the first time in almost two years. The Irish star enjoyed a rapid rise up the UFC ranks as he became the first fighter to hold titles in two different weight classes at the same time, but after adding the lightweight belt to his featherweight crown he put his MMA career on hold in order to challenge unbeaten boxing star Floyd Mayweather Jr.
That bid to become the first man to beat Mayweather ended in failure, but as soon as that fight was over all of the talk was about when, or if, McGregor would resume his mixed martial arts career?
Any thoughts of a comeback this year were temporarily shelved when McGregor found himself in serious legal trouble following an incident that saw him and a group of associates attack a bus full of fighters — including Khabib — prior to UFC Media Day, but in late July he avoided prison after pleading guilty to the charges brought against him and within a matter of weeks it was announced that he would be challenging the lightweight champion in the main event of UFC on October 6.
This is an incredibly tough fight to call, but on the flip side I do not expect it to be close on the night. That is easy — it is all down to styles. Whoever dictates where this fight takes place will be the winner. He has one-punch knockout power in that left hand and he has the speed and precision to land at will in the stand-up game.
But on the flip side, if Khabib can get the fight into his world, on the mat, then the challenger is in serious trouble. It is this approach that has made the Russian so successful in his MMA career and if he can impose his will in this fight, it will be a long — and painful — night for the former champion.
So the question is, who imposes their will and who will leave Las Vegas as the undisputed UFC lightweight champion? Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. The two men fought twice in that time and on both occasions it was Liddell who came out on top, knocking out Ortiz 38 seconds into the second round of their April bout before stopping him with just over a minute to go in the third round when they met again in December He wants to come out of retirement and call me out?
I see the opportunity to finally shut this guy up, to finally get my hand raised on my terms. You can do anything you put your mind to. I will be there, I will be in shape, and I will be ready.
So which legend will back up their trash talk? I simply have to go with Ortiz here. When Liddell left the sport eight years ago he was already a shell of his former self and had been getting knocked out with relative ease. It is hard to see how his chin will have suddenly improved in that time and if the recent sparring videos are anything to go by, he has no business getting back inside the cage.

McGregor became one of the hottest properties in combat sports as he became the first man to hold UFC titles in two different weight classes at the same time, but following his lightweight title success in late he crossed over into the boxing world to take on Floyd Mayweather and has not stepped foot inside the Octagon since then.
