After McGregor called him a “Snake in the Grass,” Dillashaw uses snake imagery in a post against Cody Garabrant, and uses the snake as his logo for TUF 25. Almost time to assemble my team for the Snake Den! Almost time to assemble my team for the Snake Den! Let's do this #TUF25 #roadback2gold #nomercy […]
Collins, who beat Chris Eubank in 1995, says that if McGregor is willing to be trained by his brother, Paschal, he could beat Mayweather. If he comes up with my brother and does training in his gym, and if he gets a Mayweather fight, we’ll sit down and put together a plan for him to […]
Kriegel interviews Frampton in Belfast. Even since I was a kid, it’s a much easier place to live. I kind of grew up at the back end of the troubles. The troubles were almost over when I grew up, and there was a still a lot of fighting between the Catholics and the Protestants. Now […]
White says McGregor can pull more pay-per-views than Mayweather, and talks about Manny Pacquiao’s earnings. Here’s the thing, Manny Pacquiao ended up doing that fight and you hear all these numbers thrown around, but it’s something like Floyd got $250 [million], Manny got $100 [million]. It’s still a lot of money for both guys, but […]
McGuigan, currently training Michael Conlan in Las Vegas, writes about the financial aspects of a Mayweather-McGregor fight. I can understand how Mayweather would be dismissive. Dana White’s guarantee of $50 million split down the middle does not reflect the power or the value of the respective sports. Mayweather would not get out of bed for […]
Kavanagh says training for a Mayweather boxing match would be easier than the average MMA fight. In a weird way, you’re getting prepared to fight one of the best boxers there’s ever been. But in another way, it would actually almost feel like a break for us because we wouldn’t have to keep up the other […]
Sonnen, who faces Tito Ortiz in the main event of this weekend’s Bellator card, says new MMA rules saying that if a fighter had one hand on the canvas he was to be considered a grounded fighter, make the sport more dangerous. The rule: Any part of the body, other than a single hand and soles […]
Pacquiao says he is open to fighting McGregor if the Mayweather fight doesn’t happen. In boxing? In boxing [I would fight McGregor] but not in [UFC], just boxing. I didn’t see [footage of Conor sparring]. But if we are talking about Conor McGregor and boxing, it’s different. Boxing is different than MMA.
Nunes, speaking of her own experience in past defeats, says Rousey can come back. I already passed this moment in my career. It’s harder to lose but if you be strong, you’ll be able to come back like I did. Make some changes, adjust. The passion in her life, the family has to be with her. […]
As part of his role as a Live Well Ambassador for Centra, Shane McGuigan gives a behind-the-scenes tour of the house, as well as the Shawn Porter’s gym, where Frampton is currently in training. Frampton, along with trainer Shane McGuigan, manager Barry McGuigan, and stablemates Josh Taylor and Josh Pritchard are currently renting former world […]
Ferguson says he’s frustrated by McGregor holding up the division. It’s for an interim title. It should be for the real shit. Am I little pissed about it? Yeah. Is Conor going to defend his belt? Little shit. Probably not. He’s going to run. Go ahead. Go run. Go try to box so you can get […]
Nurmagomedov says McGregor is holding up the division, and that Ferguson is a stronger opponent. Because he never defends his belts. He never [defended] his Cage Warriors belts, never defended his featherweight belt, and now UFC lightweight, I don’t think is different. But he has to defend. We’ll see. I don’t think about this too […]
McGregor is stopped by Irish police in his orange McLaren 650S on Aungier St., Dublin, with pictures emerging of him being spoken to by an officer from Gardai. McGregor was driving the sports car and appeared happy to cooperate with the official during the exchange, and there is no indication of any wrongdoing.
Woodley says he has not been treated as well as other fighters because he is African-American. People don’t like to hear it, but it’s the culture of our sport. We’re dealing with a different set of rules…UFC fans in general go through niches, genres of people. This is the genre where they want to see […]
Thompson and Woodley play a game of charades on UFC on Fox.
Woodley says McGregor can survive in the ring against Mayweather. I think it is going to happen this year. I have very strong insights that it will happen.Conor is from a karate background; he’s a striker by nature. He could probably last a couple of rounds… He will lose. He will lose convincingly but he […]
Mayweather tweets about what he ses as McGregor’s (lack of) earning power. Before you ask for $25M, be worth more than $25M. You have the "2" and the "5" right but you meant to say $2.5M not $25M. pic.twitter.com/07vaWF0hen — Floyd Mayweather (@FloydMayweather) January 19, 2017
Conlan, who is currently training in Los Angeles, talks about his upcoming New York debut. I’ve had a thousand people contact me about going to the fight which is incredible but I’m not getting carried away believing I have a massive fan base when I haven’t even boxed – it’s also a great excuse to go […]
Caruso says he was angry that McGregor did not appear in his film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. I wasn’t disappointed, I was really pissed. Conor had said yes he was going to do the movie [then] he went and got his ass kicked by Nate Diaz. After that, he sort of backed out but didn’t […]
Rogan says that if McGregor stays at lightweight, he will be challenged to a third fight by Diaz. They’re already saying that Conor shouldn’t have fought Nate because Nate was too big for him. But Nate is a 155er. That’s a fight that’s going to happen again if Conor stays the 155lb champion. It’s going to happen […]
Sharpe says by telling McGregor what he’s worth in a fight against Mayweather, White has given the Irishman more negotiating power ahead of his next bout in the UFC. If I’m Conor McGregor, I say I appreciate that Dana White because for the longest time you told me and you told everybody that would listen […]
After Diaz says he intends to get a boxing license: I’m not doing it for a publicity stunt, I’m doing it because I love the sport of boxing. I want to win, I want to win fights for real and get out of this MMA shit that I’m not even into anyway. BJPenn.com’s Chris Taylor confirms […]
Garrett records the world’s fastest knockout, with a head kick that flattens Heron in 1.13 seconds.
Striking coach Roddy says there has been a change in McGregor’s attitude to a potential fight with Mayweather. He would mainly bring up Floyd in passing, but over the past month or two it’s started to become more serious. It was just chitchat before but now everything is a lot more direct. Saying that, I still have no […]

McGregor appears in the third ad for the Pegasus World Cup Invitational. When Lovitz, his trainer, gives him a garish riding jacket , McGregor says he’d rather ride naked. I wanna ride bareback. Stark bollock naked!
Chiesa says McGregor cannot win against fighters coming up in the Lightweight Division. Sooner or later, Conor is going to have to come out and fight. Whether he’s taking this hiatus himself or the company is putting him on ice, who knows? But I don’t see him staying champion. I know he’s good. I’m not knocking […]
McGregor is asked a series of unusual questions about his favorite words and sounds, and the celebrity he’d most like to be, his power animal, and what he would do if he could travel back in time. I wouldn’t trade this life for anything or anyone.

Rogan says Mayweather doesn’t have as much power in negotiations as he thinks. Hey dude, it’s a lot of f-cking money. Here’s the deal; Floyd Mayweather’s last pay-per-view had 300 thousand pay-per-view buys. Conor’s last two pay-per-views were 1.3 million and 1.5 million.
Rogan says McGregor can beat Mayweather if he uses MMA gloves: Let me tell ya, here’s where Conor McGregor can win… MMA gloves. Let’s have a boxing match, with MMA gloves. Floyd’s had some serious problems in the past with his hands. And he uses those big ass pillow gloves because of it, and he’s […]
Belfast artist Oliver McParland, 59, creates a 25ft mural of McGregor. McParland was commissioned to do the piece before Christmas. I worked on it over the Christmas and new year period, and finished it on January 2 – it’s the largest portrait I’ve done. It’s probably the largest Conor McGregor mural in Ireland I would say. I’m […]

Arriving at LAX, Nunes says she is pound-for-pound better than McGregor. Yes, for sure. I am am a well-rounded fighter. Wherever the fight goes I am competent. Stand up. Ground game.

Silva says he wants to fight McGregor. Now that I’m old, I’m beginning to challenge everyone. Oh, I want to beat this dwarf… what’s the boy’s name again? McGregor. It is not provocation. It’s just that I forget, I’m old. Old men know what it’s like. I have this urge to test myself against him. I […]

Mayweather talks about White’s offer. The last time I made $25 million was ten years ago. I’m not bragging or boasting, I’m just telling the truth.

The Score creates a Pokemon parody of a potential McGregor-Mayweather fight.
Garabrant talks about his next opponents. TJ Dillashaw is someone I really want to fight. He was never the champion. He held a fake title. He’ was walking around as a fake champion. So that’s what I’d like to get back for everyone on the team…There’s Jose Aldo. He’s a legend in the sport and a […]
In an interview on Showtime tonight Mayweather is asked if he will fight McGregor. Absolutely…I’m a businessman… We can do some crazy numbers.

Not for me. .@FloydMayweather talks possible boxing fight with @TheNotoriousMMA #Boxing #JackDeGale pic.twitter.com/tTxyL4pglg — SHOWTIME […]
White says Mayweather is wrong to turn down his $25 million offer. First of all Floyd thinks he’s so much bigger than Conor — he’s wrong. Listen, Floyd’s gone undefeated for 20 years. I give him all the credit in the world for doing that. Conor’s been around for three or four years, and for him […]
