The Conor McGregor-Khabib Nurmagomedov hype train will officially get underway next week.

Both fighters will attend a press conference for UFC 229 on Sept. 20 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the promotion announced on Wednesday.

However, the event will be for media members only, added MMA Fighting's Marc Raimondi.

McGregor will face Nurmagomedov in hopes of regaining the 155-pound belt, which he never lost within the Octagon, on Oct. 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
