After a confrontation between associates of the pair, McGregor gatecrashed a Nurmagomedov press conference in NY in April.
"I hope that there are no more provocations from McGregor", Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov told R-Sport.
The father and coach of Khabib Nurmagomedov says Conor McGregor should refrain from "provocations" after a bout between the fighters was confirmed for Las Vegas in October. With that announcement, Twitter blew up. In that time he has been in the boxing ring, the delivery room, and the courtroom. But once the event wrapped, White presented a video package that announced the return of the UFC's biggest star.
The 30-year-old Irishman now has his sights set on winning the lightweight belt for a second time in just his second fight in the division in front of what will undoubtedly be a full crowd. The undefeated Russian won the vacant UFC lightweight title against Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 after then-lightweight champion Tony Ferguson pulled out of a scheduled bout with Nurmagomedov due to an injury suffered days before the event.
McGregor also has resolved his legal troubles after throwing a hand truck at a bus containing UFC fighters during a one-man rampage last April at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. With the charges and possible felony charges behind him, it appears that McGregor will not receive any punishment from the UFC for that ordeal.
"UFC President Dana White, and more than a dozen fighters competing in upcoming events, will participate in a special press conference in celebration of the organization's 25th anniversary season on Friday, August 3rd at The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles".
October 6th in Las Vegas is the date and location the UFC want for the fight according to MMA journalist Ariel Helwani, and that date would match up with Kenny's flight details.
