UFC Fan Has Found The Exact Moment A "Switched On" McGregor Beats Khabib At UFC 229
A UFC fan believes he has found the exact moment a "switched on and healthy" Conor McGregor beats Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
McGregor made a triumphant UFC comeback when he destroyed Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds at UFC 246 in January.
A title shot against UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov could happen in the near future.
'The Notorious' will be seeking for redemption following his devastating submission defeat at UFC 229.
And ahead of a potential blockbuster rematch, a UFC fan has reviewed their 2018 clash and found the exact moment a primed McGregor beats Nurmagomedov.
The 20 second clip from the third round shows McGregor walking down Nurmagomedov and connecting with a few shots, including his trademark left hand which came very close to landing.

UFC legend Chuck Liddell, meanwhile, believes Nurmagomedov is "worried" about McGregor getting better and beating him.
"In the last fight, I think he [McGregor] did what he needed to do to have a shot at beating Khabib," the former UFC light-heavyweight champion explained via LowKickMMA.
"The problem was he was tired by the third round and he had nothing left behind his punches. He got Khabib a little tired and he had a chance to throw and he just had nothing left to knock him out.
"So, if he can make it through those first two rounds and still have that snap he's got, he can take a shot at him. It doesn't seem like Khabib wants to give him a shot... and that doesn't make sense unless Khabib is worried about getting beat. Maybe Khabib is worried about Conor getting better and beating him, I don't know."
Will McGregor beat Nurmagomedov if they meet again? Let us know what you think.
