Conor McGregor’s lawyer may have just leaked a significant development on the highly-anticipated UFC comeback of one of the promotion’s two-division champions.
In a deleted Instagram story, Graham Kenny posted a picture that might suggest the date and venue of what could be the fight between his client and Khabib Nurmagomedov, which is expected to become the biggest fight in the UFC history.
Impending UFC Return
After the controversial fighter agreed on a plea that will allow him to continue his MMA career, fans have been anticipating for his future comeback in the Octagon. And for his impending UFC return, there has been a strong call for a showdown between him and the reigning lightweight king, Nurmagomedov.
In his latest interview with TMZ, the Notorious claimed that they are ‘very close’ to reaching a deal that will seal the fight.
He has been busy living his best life in New York and was seen having an intense workout in Central Park. This shows that the ‘undisputed champ champ’ is wasting no time in preparing for a gigantic clash.
Meanwhile, Khabib manager Ali Abdelaziz said that his talent would only take the fight if the Eagle is paid more than what Nate Diaz earned in his previous bout with McGregor.
With plenty of MMA fans waiting for a major development on the proposed Khabib-Conor fight, the deleted Instagram story of McGregor’s lawyer could be pointing out on something big.
See the post below:
Okay, so Conor McGregor's Ireland-based lawyer Graham Kenny posted this to his Instagram story yesterday evening. H/T to @FrontRowBrian. If true, 'The Notorious' will take on Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in a little over nine weeks time. #UFC pic.twitter.com/A8aH06NYAu

It’s quite easy to understand what the post is trying to tell. McGregor may be starring on a fight in Las Vegas, Nevada this October.
A day after his trial in Brooklyn court, multiple reports said that he has ‘accepted’ a proposed fight against the Eagle on October 6 at the UFC 229. So this could be it!
But nothing is cast in stone yet.
If this is true, then we are just two months away from witnessing history that is the UFC 229 lightweight bout.
