Alvarez: I’ll fight McGregor at Welterweight

At a press conference for UFC 201, Alvarez challenges McGregor, I started my career at 170. Actually, I wouldn’t have to make the cut, so I’d actually appreciate that if he made it at 170. I don’t like going to 155; I do it because everyone else does. It just means we’ll have a better training […]

Diaz: The UFC created McGregor

Diaz tells Whitlock that McGregor’s fame is due to the UFC pushing his image. Well that’s what the UFC did. They pushed his fan base and put all their energy and exposure on him. Like I said, I’ve been fighting a long time. They haven’t been (doing it for me) and they now can’t deny it. Look, […]

Austria MotoGP Test

Rossi improves from ninth to fifth on the final day of MotoGP testing at the Red Bull Ring, in Austria. The race will take place August 12-14. I raced here in ’96-’97 – a lifetime ago! – but the track was the same and it’s a great feeling [to be back]…It is a particular type of […]

Supports pit-to-bike radio

After his poor results in Assen and Germany, Rossi says he supports pit-to-bike radio communication.

Kahn wants McGregor MMA fight

Khan says Mayweather would most likely not take a fight with McGregor. I don’t think Mayweather would ever take it. When Mayweather knows he’s in a real fight, he just backs out of it.

Coach Kavanagh says McGregor is reaching new levels of training in Las Vegas. If I was to sum it up, there’s order to this training camp. There’s no chaos.

Marquez comments on his progress ahead of the German GP. We’re going to the German GP aiming for a podium position and of course possibly to fight for the win. The Sachsenring is normally a very good track for me that I like very much, maybe because it has so many left-hand corners, a bit like […]

Rossi: Michelin ‘behind schedule’ with wet tyres

Rossi says the high number of crashes in rainy conditions in MotoGP this year will be reduced once Michelin can develop its wet-weather tyres. With the wet tyres, Michelin right now is where it was with the slicks back in March. After that they worked and improved a lot on the front tyre. With the wet tyres they are behind […]
