News has just reached us that the two fighters, Conor McGregor and Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov, have come to a mutual agreement about their 'fall-out' after their UFC lightweight world title fight earlier this month, and will meet on neutral ground to 'patch things up'.
Immediately after his victory on 7 October, Nurmagomedov jumped the octagon fence, and fought with McGregor's team. Seeing this, McGregor was not to be outdone, and he visited violence upon the Russian's camp. Several other token fights broke out, and everyone was hurt.
Today, however, the pair seem to have resolved their differences, and have arranged to appear together in London in front of the press . McGregor was the first to offer an olive branch. He said:
"Ah, we're both big lads. What's done is done, and I've every respect for him. It was all in the heat of the moment, and I don't hold grudges. We've spoken on the phone. We're going to meet up in London, and have a cup of tea and a bun."
Nurmagomedov echoed McGregor's sentiments. He said:
"He's a wonderful fighter, and a perfect gentleman. What happened in America is history. We're big friends now. He's even invited me over to his house to play some of his games! He says he's got Kerplunk and Mouse Trap! I can't wait!"
