WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson made a successful 130 pound debut against Felix Caraballo, working him down to a sixth round stoppage victory in a non title fight at the MGM Grand Conference Center on Tuesday night.

Stevenson toyed with his opponent, breaking him down with every shot before, eventually ending the fight with a big body shot in the sixth round. The shot sent Caraballo to his knees and his gloves on the canvas and while stuck there because of the pains, the referee Tony Weeks was forced to end the fight at exactly 1:31 of the sixth.

With the win, the 2016 silver medallist Stevenson retained his unbeaten record and improved to (14-0, 8KOs). Stevenson was placed a 100-1 favourite, heading into the fight and he proved right the bookmarkers by winning all the five rounds (50-44, 50-44, 50-43) before the stoppage, dropping Caraballo (13-2-2, 9 KOs) twice in the first round…

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor headlines UFC 229 In Oct

3/8/2018



Conor McGregor will make his UFC return against UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Announced today at a news conference for the promotion’s 25th anniversary, the long awaited matchup will headline UFC 229 on Oct. 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, airing live on pay-per-view.

Conor McGregor got the call back to the Octagon after he agreed a deal with prosecutors over his role in a bus attack at UFC 223 , which left two UFC fighters injured. This helped him avoid a jail time and was instead ordered to perform community service and anger management.

During his absence from the promotion, Nurmagomedov went on to capture the lightweight title that was stripped from McGregor when he failed to defend the belt but this isn't what makes this interesting.

What makes it interesting is the fact that both have a grudge and McGregor recent issues is surrounded by this grudge and his rampage according to him, was a retaliation for a previous run-in between his teammate Artem Lobov and Nurmagomedov, who was in the bus at the time of the attack and was restrained by his manager.

Conor McGregor while still a Champ made a move into Boxing to face Floyd Mayweather tagged "The Money Fight" , which saw him lose with a 10th round KO but reportedly made McGregor over $100 million.
