One final push at promotion came Thursday for UFC 229, as the UFC hosted a pre-fight press conference featuring Dana White, Conor McGregor, and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The UFC was set to host a second press conference Thursday ahead of UFC 229, and this time, fans would be in the building as Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov had a second chance to rattle each other’s cages ahead of their headlining lightweight title fight. While the previous, media-only presser took place in New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Thursday saw both fighters, and UFC President Dana White, facing the fans in Las Vegas, NV.
While the event itself would be taking place at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas, the pre-fight press conference was set for the Park Theatre. You can watch it above, starting at 6PM ET (3PM PT) above.
