Conor McGregor Responds To UFC's Title-Stripping Threat With Vulgar Defiance
Apr 06 2018
White also insisted that McGregor will make his long-awaited return later this year.
Tony Ferguson confirmed his injury via a post on social media which says he sustained a possible ACL tear and might have to undergo surgery to recover. And this time, for the undisputed lightweight championship. According to Nurmagomedov, McGregor said that he wouldn't be ready in time. "But it's going to be a long night".
One thing is for sure, McGregor will certainly be facing legal trouble, and discipline from the UFC for this incident. Holloway's 145-pound title won't be on the line, although he'll have the chance to add a second championship belt - the 155-pound title - if he beats Nurmagomedov. "He's taking a short-notice fight against me".
Nearly every topic in UFC these days somehow comes back to McGregor.
It isn't the first time McGregor has lashed out at the UFC and its fighters in recent days. His only fight in 2017 was a boxing match against undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather, who won the fight by knockout.
NY police are seeking to question UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor after he and members of his entourage allegedly attacked a bus and left fighter Michael Chiesa injured, a police spokesman told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday.
"You's'll strip me of nothing", he tweeted very early Thursday morning, before calling UFC officials an unprintable word. McGregor was supposed to have headlined that card, in a rematch with Nate Diaz, but White pulled the fight after the Irishman refused to break training for some promotional appearances. Ferguson had been the 155-pound interim champion in McGregor's absence and remained the No. 1 contender in the division.
"The Eagle" has plenty of support in NY and UFC President Dana White suggested that the decision was made to move Lobov to a different hotel for his own safety.
"In jungle, only one king", Nurmagomedov said.
"I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is, but to come in and do this and act like this" White said.
White said if Holloway was willing to fight that much, than "anything is possible". I don't think too serious.
The MMA fighter was seen attacking a bus attempting to leave the Barclays Center in a recent video, according to a TMZ report. He tossed T-shirts to fans asking the best questions and posed for a selfie with a kid in a papakha. Well, this is the "Notorious" one we're dealing with here, so have a look for yourself.
