Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov have shared a long rivalry which has lasted almost a year now and things are only getting bitter between the two. As Khabib vs Poirier is set to take place at UFC 242, one can only wonder if the Irishman is going to interfere in the match and cause some level of disruption. Even UFC President Dana White seems to believe that McGregor might just ‘gatecrash’ the match.
Let us take a closer look at the main event of UFC 242 and consider the possibility of McGregor actually interfering in the match.

UFC 242: Khabib vs Poirier to be the Main Event
Khabib Nurmagomedov has been away from action ever since the UFC 229 main event where he defeated Conor McGregor. However, Khabib is now back in the company and is all set to face Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 which takes place in Abu Dhabi.
The match is expected to be won by Khabib, and by most expectations, with quite an ease.

Will Conor McGregor Gatecrash UFC 242?
Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov is a rematch that everyone has been waiting for. McGregor is desperate for this rematch but the champ doesn’t seem so keen on facing him already.
Khabib had asked McGregor to pile up a few wins before he faces him again. However, McGregor being McGregor, we do expect him to turn up at UFC 242, even if it is just to ‘intimidate’ Khabib. Stay tuned with us for more updates about this match!
