Conor McGregor press conference: Watch former UFC champion address the media in Moscow during Russia visit
Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor faced the media at a special media event in Moscow, where he announced his plans for a busy return to the UFC in 2020.
McGregor, who was defeated by Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, believes things will pan out very differently in a rematch and has been lobbying strongly for a return bout with "The Eagle", who has made clear his preference for a fight with former interim champion Tony Ferguson.
But in his press conference appearance on Thursday, McGregor revealed his masterplan, starting with a return to the octagon in January 2020.
McGregor has been on a promotional tour with one of his sponsorship partners, Parimatch, who staged Thursday's event at the city's Telegraph Hall, situated just a stone's throw from the Kremlin itself.
