Paddy’s have the Power in all things Conor McGregor

In August 2017 Floyd Mayweather came out of retirement to tackle Mixed Martial Arts fighter Conor McGregor and attempt to take his professional boxing record to 50-0 (surpassing the 49-0 record of Rocky Marciano). In winning Mayweather achieved this and also successfully boosted his bank balance by $300 million. Read on for the latest UFC news and Conor McGregor betting odds for his next UFC fight.

McGregor also topped his bank account up by $100 million in that Mayweather fight . Unsurprisingly this face-off was titled ‘The Money Fight’ and it was not only the contestants who begged loads of it.

Betting turnover on this colossal sporting spectacle was enormous and online bookies were unable to balance their books with 90% of all wagers on the underdog, with the Conor McGregor betting odds, backed from 12/1 into 4/1.

As much as they were out on a limb, and victory for the Irishman would have severely damaged their end-of-year balance sheets, the bookies loved this fight. Paddy Power were particularly big winners. In arranging for the unbeaten champion to wear branded pants at weigh-in (which stated ‘always bet on black’) they netted an untold number of new customers.

Conor McGregor Betting Odds
The long awaited return of Conor McGregor

Now, more than a year on, the Paddy Power media machine is ecstatic that, after taking a break to smash up a few bus windows and dodge jail, Conor McGregor’s long awaited return to the UFC has been confirmed.

The Irish mauler will finally face UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6th at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas.  It marks McGregor’s first outing in the octagon since November 2016, when he comprehensively dismissed Eddie Alvarez to win the Lightweight strap and become the UFC’s first dual weight world champion as he also held the featherweight gold at the time.

Nurmagomedov is undefeated at 26-0, including 10 on the spin in UFC and picked up the Lightweight title McGregor vacated in April by defeating Al Iaquinta in Brooklyn, New York.

While the hype around this fight is not quite at ‘Money’ Mayweather levels, it’s still been the most talked about potential MMA bout out there and it was finally made official with a surprise video package at a 25th anniversary press conference by UFC President Dana White.

Khabib Nurmagomedov v Conor McGregor Betting Odds

Reacting to the news the Paddy Power odds makers have the champion Khabib Nurmagomedov their 4/6 (1.67) favourite to hand McGregor just his fourth defeat in his MMA career with underdog Conor McGregor betting odds available at 6/4 (2.50).
