The highly-anticipated UFC 229 event on October 6 is starting to take shape, with five bouts announced Thursday for the card at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which is headlined by the UFC lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.

In the flyweight division, two contenders will battle for position in the race to take on new champion Henry Cejudo, as No. 2-ranked Sergio Pettis faces No. 5-ranked Jussier Formiga. There will be plenty on the line in the strawweight division as well on October 6, as No. 7-ranked Michelle Waterson squares off with No. 8-ranked Felice Herrig.

At 205 pounds, unbeaten Dominick Reyes will attempt to crash when the No. 12-ranked Californian takes on No. 7-ranked Ovince Saint Preux. Plus, Ryan LaFlare meets Tony Martin in a clash of welterweight veterans, and Lina Lansberg battles Yana Kunitskaya in a women’s bantamweight bout.

Ten fights. That’s all it took for Conor McGregor to go from relative unknown to worldwide superstar. Along the way, “The Notorious” one made history, becoming the first fighter to hold two UFC titles simultaneously. But this story isn’t over yet, and on Saturday, October 6, McGregor will return to Las Vegas and T-Mobile Arena to challenge unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight title he never lost in the Octagon. It’s the biggest fight of 2018, and to start getting you ready, here’s a look at the fights that got McGregor to the UFC 229 main event.
