MMAjunkie recently spoke to Conor McGregor’s training partner and teammate, James Gallagher (7-0, MMA), who claimed that McGregor will knock out UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the first round.

Gallagher stated, “He’s going to get stiffened in about a minute-and-a-half.” He added, “He’s going to rush in and try to get ahold of Conor. You can’t fire sloppy shots to try to close the distance. He’ll take one clean shot on the chin, and he’ll hit the floor.”

McGregor will face Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. The fight card is set for October 6. The event will be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card will be broadcast live on pay-per-view. Prelims will be shown on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
