UFC 229 will feature probably the most biggest fight in the history of MMA as former featherweight and lightweight champion ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor will make his much anticipated return to take on current lightweight champion Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov on October 6.
Considering the magnitude of the fight, several people from MMA community like Kenny Florian, Dustin Poirier, Bas Rutten, Georges St-Pierre,etc weighed in on the fight and lodged their early predictions. Another man to add to the list is MMA legend, former middleweight champion Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva. Silva didn’t give his prediction for the fight but had some good words to say for both the fighters. However he did give Nurmagomedov a slight edge in that department.
“Khabib is a great fighter,” Anderson Silva said in a recent interview with Inquisitr. “I’m very impressed. Conor is a great fighter. Having a new generation of fighters, especially in the UFC… this is a huge company that’s worked for a long time to get the great fighters in the sport.
I think Khabib is the best, here, in this moment.”
