The UFC have released their first full-length trailer along with the announcement that Khabib and McGregor will feature in a press conference next week.
Yesterday came the news that Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will finally engage in a press conference next Thursday after what seemed like an eternity of uncertainty.
Rumours were swirling that the Irishman was flat out refusing to do media for UFC 229 and while that still may be the case to some extent, he has still tied himself to his first UFC media appearance in over two years.
Khabib will no doubt come into this matchup certain of the fact that he will be numb to the now infamous mind-games of McGregor but until these two meet face-to-face next week – nothing is for certain.
The UFC have jumped on the excitement that came with the announcement and released a promo for the fight – one that does an adequate job of highlighting the stakes, even if it contains no new footage of the former-champion McGregor.
