"I am the best at this".
In the Instagram post, McGregor claims that he volunteered to fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 this March after Max Holloway pulled out. That fight would do blockbuster numbers, and McGregor has spoke glowingly in the past of his respect for the elder Diaz brother. On top of the fighting.
Ferguson and Nurmagomedov have been matched multiple times before, but none of the fights ever came to fruition. Because I am here.
The Irishman is set to lose the lightweight belt as UFC President Dana White said last month that Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson will fight for the undisputed title at UFC 223 on April 7. UFC put women's featherweight championship between Cris "Cyborg" Justino and Yana Kunitskaya as the main event, while Edgar was lined up against a replacement opponent Brian Ortega.
McGregor made his Octagon debut in 2013 as a featherweight.
"He's become just like Floyd Mayweather".
UFC 222 now is headlined by a fight between Cyborg (19-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) and UFC newcomer Yana Kunitskaya (10-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC), the Invicta FC women's bantamweight champion. Frankie Edgar seemed to confirm the comments in a Tweet sharing the interview, but does that mean he'd pass up a title fight with Holloway at featherweight to finally fight McGregor?
Statement on International Mother Language Day
For PanSALB, a day is not enough to celebrate our diversity of languages, especially in a country that has 11 official languages. The college organised the event with the theme "Enriching Mother Language ".
With the Mayweather bout being such a big money-maker for the UFC, the company stood by its man and refused to strip him even though he had no plans of defending the belt.
It's been well over a year since McGregor stepped into the Octagon, when he won the lightweight title at UFC 205 beating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016. Despite the uncertainty, White says that he hopes McGregor will face the victor of the UFC 223 match between Nurmagomedov and Ferguson. The UFC has flirted with the idea of stripping him of a second title but has thus far refused to commit.
It's no surprise to see McGregor shoot his mouth off, of course.
Conor McGregor is ready for a fight.
He wrote on Instagram: "I am fighting again".
"Is he upset? No, Conor understands", White said.
