Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov are going to face off in one of the most anticipated UFC fights of the year.

The news comes as those who were thinking of illegally streaming the McGregor Khabib fight have been given a warning.
Kieron Sharp is the CEO of the UK’s leading intellectual property protection organisation FACT.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Sharp said: “Conor McGregor’s long-awaited return to UFC is sure to be an incredibly popular fight, and users must ensure they are watching the stream through official sources to avoid possible fines or a tougher sentence.
“Whether it’s watching a live stream on social media, using a piracy site, or a box or stick connected to your TV, watching it any way other than through the official provider is illegal.
“People need to be aware that this is no longer a grey area, in fact it is very black and white.
“If you are accessing content for free such as sport, TV and films for which you’d normally need a subscription, this is illegal.
“FACT is leading the way in combatting digital piracy and working with PIPCU and industry bodies to crackdown on illegal streaming and to hold those behind them accountable for their actions.
“It is getting harder to watch live sport illegally and fans should be aware that if they are planning to watch the fight this way they are breaking the law.”
