And it appears he's sticking around by heading to Las Vegas, Nevada, to watch McGregor.

Celebrities will be in attendance at UFC 229 including Fury who reckons McGregor will KO Khabib Nurmagomedov.

"I'm gonna go to that fight. Vegas baby," he said about UFC 229.

Fury was then asked for his prediction: "McGregor, knockout."

The man himself is confident of sleeping the Dagestan-fighter.

"I think I'm going to turn him into a bobblehead if I'm honest," he told The Mac Life.

Nurmagomedov and McGregor have been trading verbal jabs with the pair firing shots at a pre-fight press conference in New York.

Despite the bad blood, McGregor stays true to his fighting philosophy in that it's a blank face inside the cage.

"It's personal but it's the same, it's always a little personal. In there it's a blank face and a new body."

McGregor added: "I see him turning into a bobblehead when I hit him. I feel his brain is going to rattle when he takes a clatter off me.

"That's what I'm keeping in my head, but I'm a veteran now.

"I will be prepared for five rounds, I'll be prepared for any scenario. I'm well trained, I've put in the work and we are confident going in, no matter where it goes."

The Irishman makes his first walk to the famed Octagon since 2016 this weekend.

Will he become the king of the UFC lightweight division, again?
