The countdown is well and truly on. We're less than three days away from the world's most famous MMA fighter – the Notorious Conor McGregor – making his long awaited, much anticipated return to the UFC Octagon at UFC 229. Khabib Nurmagomedov is his undefeated opponent in what could be an all time classic, and we'll make sure that you know how to live stream McGregor vs Khabib no matter where in the world you are.
Yep, it's almost time for all the trash talking to stop and the action to begin. It's now been nearly two years since we've seen McGregor in a UFC clash and although he is only 30 years old, he'll be determined to prove he's not a spent force in the sport he's done so much to help grow. While the Dubliner enters the fight with three career defeats to his name, opponent Khabib carries a perfect 26-0 professional record, making his credentials plain to see.
While the Russian will want to drag the lightweight duel into a wrestling match, McGregor will hope to keep a distance and deliver his deadly strikes. The contrast in styles and calibre of the fighters – not to mention the personal animosity between them – means we could be in for a true classic in Vegas.
With that duel in store, plus an enticing undercard featuring Tony Ferguson vs Anthony Pettis and Ovince Saint Preux vs Dominick Reyes among others, UFC 229 is one not to be be missed. Read on to find out how you can watch this tasty MMA action from anywhere in the world – and on just about any device – using our VPN and live stream guide.

Stay protected with a VPN
Kodi's versatility and vast range of content has changed the landscape of live sport watching over the past few years. TechRadar's in no way condone's the use of Kodi for illegal streaming, but having a VPN in play for when you do use Kodi for proper means is a no-brainer. That's because it gives you an extra layer of security to avoid companies using tools to collect IP addresses when you torrent or P2P file share.
IPVanish currently tops our chart of best Kodi VPN providers thanks to its fast speeds and tight security. And don't forget that it's also running a 69% off promotion for its two year plan over the course of October.
