Conor McGregor appeared to narrowly miss bumping into bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov at the Fight Island hotel by mere seconds.

In his absence, Khabib has shot to the top of the pound-for-pound list by defeating Justin Gaethje before instantly retiring following the tragic passing of his father.
Despite their one and only meeting inside the cage taking place more than three years ago, the animosity between both men remains as intense and vitriolic as ever.
After meeting with Dana White on Friday night to discuss his fighting future, the Russian has remained on Fight Island and is staying at the W Hotel on Yas Island.
Footage captured and uploaded to YouTube by Full Reptile from the hotel reveals just how close the pair came to having an awkward confrontation in the hotel lobby.

UFC 257 – McGregor vs Poirier 2: Best free bets, odds and betting sign-up offers for the showdown

Security and safety are of paramount importance to the UFC at this moment in time, with the organisation acting as a beacon of hope for top level sports in 2020 in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
By managing to barely miss a step last year, the UFC are aiming to start 2021 even more emphatically with the sport’s biggest star headlining the first pay-per-view.
Having knocked Poirier out when they first met in 2014 as a pair of featherweight contenders, McGregor is confident the rematch will end in a similar fashion.
However, he believes a sequel with ‘The Eagle’ would be his easiest rematch ever.
The current UFC lightweight champion stopped and spoke to Matt Serra in the lobbyFull Reptile (YouTube)
He told TSN: “I’ll tell you what, this will be an easy rematch for me this Sunday, but it won’t be my easiest rematch.
“When I get that rematch against Khabib, it will be an easy rematch, and I guarantee this.
“If he wants to continue running, that is no problem I will eliminate the rest of them.”
