“Notorious” is now set to throw down with undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 229. The two fighters will face of on Oct. 6, live on pay-per-view.

Speaking to RT, Robin Black revealed his belief that Conor McGregor will retire if he loses to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“As much as there is so much for each one to gain, there is also a lot for each one to lose. If McGregor loses, in my opinion, he will retire. If McGregor loses this fight, he will retire.

“If Khabib loses this fight, not only does he lose his undefeated record, but these losses to someone like McGregor, when the temperature has been raised… these losses are painful, they change a fighter forever.”
