I was leaning towards Conor to get the job done, and if there's someone who can catch Khabib coming in, it's Conor.
But after watching this breakdown, I don't know. Khabib will probably maul him like everybody else :D

Sorry I don't know how to sink the video here.

I can absolutely see Conor sparking Khabib, but I actually think he’s going to get dominated.

Ya things get interesting tho if Kaybiby can't finish him or has trouble taken him down and keeping him there.
Conor likely needs a finish within three unless he is hurting him left and right.Can Conor hurt big head tho?I know he will be landing

I’m really interested to see this fight. Hopefully Lewis’ back is ok and comes in healthy.

Never count him out due to his power. Can’t wait to see this matchup. Winner might be in line for a title shot or #1 contender bout.

If ever one needed an indication of how big UFC 229 could be, they’d need to look no further than the odds.

In a rare move for a UFC press conference, online sportsbook BetDSI has opened an extensive list of prop bets for Thursday’s UFC 229 kickoff media event in New York between lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. The many prop bets available for fight fans to wager on range from the expected (Will Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov have to be separated? Will either Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov throw something?) to the absurd (Will Conor McGregor be chewing gum? Will someone be arrested at Broadway 45th and 46th street viewing party?).

The UFC 229 introductory press conference will be the first time Nurmagomedov and McGregor are in the same room together since the Irishman’s infamous dolley-throwing incident at UFC 223.

UFC 229 takes place Oct. 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I wonder who willl be the referee for the main event? When Woodley fought Till, Maragliotta was very busy to seperate the fighters when up against the cage. Every seperation is a win for Mcgregor.
