It's fair to say that this might just be the biggest fight in the history of the UFC.

Conor McGregor will make his long-awaited return to the octagon when he faces Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in Las Vegas.

Ahead of the bout for the UFC Lightweight Championship on October 6th, the pair came face-to-face at the official press conference for the event at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

McGregor arrived with his UFC Featherweight and Lightweight belts, despite the fact that he was stripped of both championships (they're allowed to keep their belts) and continued to highlight that he was 'the King'.

He also turned up with his brand new whiskey 'Proper 12', which he tried to offer to Khabib, who doesn't drink, before sharing a glass with UFC President Dana White.

However, with no crowd in attendence, there wasn't the same aura or atmosphere at this press conference, and Khabib seemed to be calm and collected throughout. It remains to be seen if mind games affected him.
