Nate Diaz made his thoughts on the UFC's Conor McGregor announcement very clear on Friday. McGregor and Nurmagomedov will collide on October 6 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Khabib Nurmagomedov is ready to face his toughest opponent to date in his first title defense since winning the belt back in April at UFC 223.
Conor McGregor will finally make his long awaited Octagon return as he takes on newly-crowned lightweight champion and rival Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0) at UFC 229 on October 6, the UFC announced on Friday.

That led to charges for McGregor, who escaped a jail term and criminal record after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct, paving the way for the bout against Nurmagomedov.
