Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor is back. “Notorious” is set to throw down with undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 229 on Oct. 6 from within the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev, live on pay-per-view.

Speaking at the recent UFC 227 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White revealed that there will be no world tour for promoting the match up.

“We don’t have time for a world tour. These guys are going to fight the first week of October. Both guys are going to go into camp. We’ll do something fun, we’ll do some different stuff. We’re literally having a big meeting on Monday to get this stuff in order and get it going.”
