The wait is over. Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Conor McGregor is finally on its way.

 

After a series of trash talks and bad-mouth, the fighters are ready to take their bad blood into the octagon and prove their prominence as the most awaited MMA match of the year is going to happen in about a months period.
