UFC says Mc Gregor will fight in October

The bout will see undefeated Russian Nurmagomedov, 29, take on Irishman McGregor, 30, who is the only person ever to hold UFC belts at two different weights simultaneously. Graham Kenny posted to his Instagram story plane tickets to Las Vegas flying out October 5, with a return date to London Gatwick on October 10 along with the caption: "It's on".

After a two-year hiatus from the sport, the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion will return to the Octagon to face current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

As for Nurmagomedov, he captured the UFC lightweight title back in April.
