CONOR McGREGOR WILL end a 23-month absence from mixed martial arts tonight — or the early hours of tomorrow morning, to be precise — in Las Vegas.

In the headline bout at UFC 229 at the T-Mobile Arena, McGregor will share the octagon with reigning lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

In what is being billed as a classic striker-versus-grappler match-up, the Dubliner bids to regain the belt he was stripped of due to inactivity.

With a 26-0 professional record, Nurmagomedov has never been defeated. However, McGregor (21-3) is adamant that he’ll be the man to change that, forecasting a knockout victory that would send him back to the summit of the 155-pound division.

We want to know how you expect the fight to play out, so make your pick in our poll below.
