McGregor To Mention Proper No. Twelve Whiskey In UFC 229 Press Conference?
There could be more than verbal sparring on the menu as Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov prepare to turn up the hype at the UFC 229 press conference on Thursday.
The media briefing for the highly anticipated bout takes place at Radio City Music Hall in New York, a short distance from the scene of the controversial fracas that ended with McGregor being handed five days of community service and up to three days of anger management.
Our markets for the event suggest fireworks with Conor McGregor a 7/2 shot to throw any item at his opponentand 4/1 to knock him down, three weeks before he is due to face him in the Octagon in Las Vegas.
Press Conferences involving the Notorious Dublin fighter rarely go without incident and he is 9/2 to make an early exit by storming out of proceedings.
However he’s the shorter price of 3/1 to hang around and throw in a mention of his newly released whiskey brand ‘Proper No. Twelve.’
McGregor is a 7/5 outsider for the fight, which is being billed as the most anticipated in UFC history, and is odds-against at 15/8 to see off the Russian by knockout when they take to the octagon in the early hours of October 7th.
