The wait is over, Conor McGregor’s UFC return is finally official.

Dana White announced earlier today that Conor’s return to the UFC would take place on October 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada at UFC 229, when he will face undefeated UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC President Dana White made the announcement earlier today during a News Conference on Friday, saying that the UFC Lightweight Championship will be on the line as the two will headline UFC 229 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Conor McGregor’s last UFC fight was back in November 2016 when he was victorious against Eddie Alvarez. Since then McGregor made his Professional Boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in August of 2017, losing the fight via TKO in the 10th round.

McGregor, the former UFC Lightweight Champion, was stripped of the title back in April due to inactivity. Khabib won the vacant UFC Lightweight Championship back in April at UFC 223 when he beat Al Iaquinta via unanimous decision.
