UFC 229 is less than a month out, and as a result, the promotion’s marketing machine for the October 6th card is beginning to kick into high gear.

Recently three new promo adds for Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor were released, and the UFC’s also posted McGregor’s last, MMA bout.

That scrap went down in November, 2016, when McGregor took out Eddide Alvarez at UFC 205 to secure the lightweight title. As you surely know, the Irish superstar was stripped of the 155 crown earlier this year, and Nurmagomedov won it in April, by defeating Al Iaquinta.

UFC 229 will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card’s line-up is below.
