Southport’s FIREPIT is staying open through the night to give fight fans a ringside seat for the much-awaited Las Vegas return of Conor McGregor this weekend.

The Lord Street smokehouse and sports bar is making sure fans don’t miss a minute of the octagon action as McGregor comes back from two years away from UFC to take on undefeated Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov.

They’ll be able to watch the full UFC229 fight card on the biggest non-cinema screen in Southport from midnight on Saturday UK time until the main event at around 5am in the early hours of Sunday.

McGregor hasn’t fought in the UFC since November 2016 and Khabib now holds the world lightweight title that once belonged to the Irishman so there’s plenty at stake.

The Russian, who’s won all of his 26 professional fights, is bookies favourite, but millions of supporters of The Notorious are backing him to upset the odds and reclaim his belt.

The FIREPIT has two packages available for fans to book and make sure they get the best ringside seats for what’s going to be an unmissable clash.

The £10 per person package includes reserved seating, waitress service and two cans of either Rekorderlig, Beer Monkey or Flying Dog Easy IPA. The £15 per person package adds a choice of hot dog, burger or 10 wings.
