Conor McGregor has been on full throttle in the build-up to his UFC comeback fight

Lightweight ace McGregor, 30, last fought as a boxer when he took on Floyd Mayweather last year.

Now the UFC world looks forward to what could be his most brutal battle yet.

McGregor insists: "I'm going to maul him.

"I will clatter him; he will crumble. I don't think he can take a smack. He reacts like a novice."

The build-up to Saturday night's UFC 229 showdown in Las Vegas has been venomous.

The fighters' explosive first press conference saw McGregor launch his own whisky amid a host of fiery exchanges.

Then on The Ariel Helwani Show in America, McGregor threatened basically everyone, and in particular Khabib's crew, saying they need to watch themselves.

He warned: "Everyone needs to watch where they step, watch what they say, watch what they do, watch were they sleep at night."

 Khabib is the unbeaten favourite

That came in November 2016 when he beat Eddie Alvarez to add the lightweight belt to his featherweight title.

He was later stripped of both titles because of inactivity, with Nurmagomedov being installed as lightweight champion earlier this year – a decision that still grates with McGregor.
