It just so happens that Celtic travel to McDiarmid Park on that day.

The Irishman beat Jose Aldo on December 12, 2015, just a day before the Hoops travelled to St Johnstone.

When the 30-year-old took on Floyd Mayweather on August 21, 2016, it came a day AFTER the fixture.

However, on this occasion McGregor LOST – though Celtic playing at home could have had something to do with it.

The Notorious will be hoping he can be as successful as Brendan Rodgers' champions when he makes his hugely anticipated UFC return at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

McGregor pleaded guilty to charges stemming from his April attack on Nurmagomedov's bus in New York.

He will perform community service and attend anger management courses after admitting to charges of disorderly conduct.

But McGregor will look to release that anger inside the Octagon when he gets the chance to win back his world lightweight championship belt at UFC 229.

UFC chief Dana White confirmed: "The fight is done, baby, October 6 Las Vegas!"

Russian fighter Nurmagomedov, 29, has warned McGregor about what is in store for him.

He said: "I can’t believe we’re going to fight, because I really want this guy.

"Make him humble, teach him a little bit, and not only smash but change his face.

"I want to change his face. Of course, with face I can change his mind, too."
