Arguably UFC’s biggest star Conor McGregor and the undefeated Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov are going head-to-head over in Las Vegas, and you can watch it all go down right here in Dubai.
On Sunday October 7, McGettigan’s JLT will be opening up bright and early for one of the biggest fights in UFC history, and you even have a hefty breakfast buffet while you watch it.
For Dhs79, UFC fans can tuck into the Irish bar’s list of breakfast trimmings, including sausages, hash browns, scrambled egg, black pudding and just about everything to make up a full Irish breakfast – the perfect meal to have if you’re rooting for McGregor.
Showing across McGettigan’s JLT’s multiple screens and its giant main screen, UFC 299 will see the “The Notorious” Irish fighter return to the octagon ring in his first UFC fight since 2016, all to take back the title of Lightweight Champion.
It’ll be tough though, as current title holder Khabib Nurmagomedov has gone through 26 professional matches in the ring, and hasn’t lost a single one of them.
The prize purse is expected to be the biggest in UFC history, so needless to say, there’s quite a lot of hype.
If it’s anything like Mayweather v McGregor like last year, we’re in for a whopper of a fight.
Spaces for the event are on a first come, first served basis so if you’re looking for front row seats, set that alarm clock back a little more. The early bird gets the table, after all.
Looking for an even bigger screen? The big fight will also be showing live at Reel Cinemas at Dubai Marina Mall and The Dubai Mall at 4am.
The Irish Village will also be screening the match live from 6am to 10am.
Whichever place you choose, be prepared for a thrilling match.
