UFC will not discipline Conor McGregor for bus attack

McGregor and Nurmagomedov will collide on October 6 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC president Dana White made the announcement during a news conference Friday (Aug. 3), revealing that McGregor-Nurmagomedov would headline UFC 229 at Vegas' T-Mobile Arena.

Around this time a year ago, McGregor was in Los Angeles alongside Floyd Mayweather at a massive press event.

Nurmagomedov, whose rise to prominence has been more of a slow burner in comparison to McGregor, was touted as an opponent when his foe first became lightweight champion.

It's official, Conor McGregor will challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight title in October. So what sort of food does a former two-weight UFC world-champion fighter eat?

Previous peace agreements held for only a matter of months before fighting resumed, which Kiir has blamed on foreign influence. President Kiir also said the remaining outstanding issues will be finalized with his rivals as soon as he arrives in Khartoum.

As well as what Dana White has dubbed the "biggest fight in UFC history" there are several other must-see bouts coming up on BT Sport in the coming months, including Darren Till's welterweight title fight on 8 September. Last month he was sentenced to five days of community service in the USA after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.

McGregor was then asked if he'll fight Nurmagomedov before the end of the year, and responded by saying: "I believe so. For Khabib, who is undefeated and who is looked at as one of the best fighters in the world, beating Conor is massive for him", White said.

McGregor had initiated the bus attack in response to Nurmagomedov and his team's cornering of Artem Lobov, who is one of the Irishman's good friends, ahead of UFC 223.

White didn't disclose terms of the deal that was reached. The popular Diaz (19-11) hasn't fought since that majority-decision loss to McGregor in August 2016, but he agreed to fight Dustin Poirier in a lightweight bout in NY at UFC 230 on November 3.

Oddly, Diaz later tweeted that he actually won't be fighting as part of the card.
