Conor McGregor to Return to the UFC in October

by Matt George – Sports 1140 KHTK Reporter

One of the greatest trash-talkers in all of professional sports, and arguably the biggest star the UFC has ever had, Conor McGregor, is returning to the octagon in October.

After a very long hiatus, consisting of behavior issues and the boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr., the Irish loudmouth will battle undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6th in Las Vegas.

McGregor hasn’t fought in the UFC since defeating Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in November of 2016.
