Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor is finally set to make his massive octagon return. With that in mind, two of the Ireland native’s primary sparring partners just touched down in Dublin.
Conor McGregor has not competed inside the octagon since making UFC history back in 2016. As the reigning featherweight champion, “Notorious” finished Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight belt.
McGregor became the first fighter within the promotion’s history to ever simultaneously wield multiple division titles. Since then, McGregor has been stripped of both belts for inactivity.
Now “Notorious” is set to throw down with undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 229. The live pay-per-view event will take place from within the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. on Oct. 6.
Now it would appear that SBG Ireland’s Dillon Danis and Artem Lobov recently touched down in Dublin, Ireland. The two fighters are known training partners to “Notorious,” making it likely that the two mixed martial artists will be soon aiding Conor McGregor in training for his big match up.
