UFC 229 promises to be the highlight of the 2018 fight season. On Saturday, October 6th, we’ll be hosting a special viewing party here at Camden Cocktail Lounge, so you can watch UFC 229 in a great atmosphere while enjoying delicious food and cocktails. And, of course, all eyes will be on our many flatscreen TVs as we watch history play out, live.
What You Need to Know About UFC 229
UFC 229 is perhaps the most anticipated match of the season. With a projected 2.5 million pay-per-view buys, much of the attention surrounding this fight is due to the long leadup and history between the fighters.
When Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov square off on October 6th, they’ll be settling a five-year-long rivalry. McGregor, who is the highest-paid athlete in UFC history, is known for his fiery attitude. He’s also coming back from spending nearly two years away from UFC; his last fight was in November of 2016 when he won the lightweight championship. Tensions between McGregor and Nurmagomedov came to a head when McGregor threw a metal dolly at Nurmagomedov’s bus last April. McGregor was charged with three counts of assault.
Part of what makes this fight so captivating is the fact that the boxers are so closely matched. Nurmagomedov, the current UFC lightweight champion, has 26 wins. McGregor has 21 wins and 3 losses, and his striking style will be in contrast to Nurmagomedov’s grappling style.
McGregor has already made his own predictions about the fight’s outcome, stating that Nurmagomedov has a “glass jaw” and that McGregor will win the match within one round. “I know he is afraid of smack. And if you’re afraid of a smack off me, a smack will feel like a double-barrelled shotgun. So I believe inside the first. But, I have been wrong before. I will be prepared for five rounds,” said McGregor.
