Is this the biggest fight in UFC history? This is a question many have asked and in short the answer is yes. Any McGregor fight is a blockbuster show but this has everything. Two of the sports leading fighters, contrasting styles and a rivalry to boot. This contest is very likely to break all previous UFC PPV records with tickets also selling out in record time as fans clamour to see these two warriors of the sport face off.
Khabib has dominated all before him and is the current title holder following McGregor being stripped of his titles. The lineal champion McGregor is returning to the octagon following a two year break that included his record breaking boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather Jr. He gained a lot of plaudits for his display in that fight but could this have affected his overall MMA game?
