McGregor is going to participate in the greatest battle in UFC history. The boxer defy the invincible lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the major competition of UFC 229. The huge title fight will take place in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada this October.

Conor McGregor has become a bit softer

In contrast to McGregor’s past battles, there is very little in terms of media presentations. There will be no worldwide tour, but solely a media event (September, 20). In his last statement on BJ Penn Radio, Colby Covington expressed his views on the situation:

“I totally understand his position. He’s currently in Ireland, and it’s a bit difficult to come do promotion in the US. It breaks the person’s workout schedule. You wish to work out a lot, and prepare for the competition. I understand him. It is a quite difficult to travel across the world you try to lose weight and want to get your best shape back. But I have to admit that he’s become a bit softer in recent years. He’s dealing with cocaine, and spends a lot of time with his whores. He’s just a small dwarf who’s becoming a bit softer, so I totally get it why he doesn’t want to take part in the promotion.”

Apart from some posts on Instagram and workout videos, McGregor hasn’t made any comments on the UFC 229 bout. We’ll eager to see what will come out during the NYC press-conference.
