He’s one of the greatest MMA fighters on the planet and is always the loudest person in the room. This Sunday in Vegas, the outspoken Irishman Conor McGregor takes on Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight title.

UFC 229 takes place in Las Vegas Sunday, October 7. McGregor has already threatened to turn Khabib into a “Bobblehead.” There’s plenty of time for this to escalate.
