Appears on Late Late Show: ‘If you can’t stand up, stand out’
O’Connell appears on The Late Late Show where he describes his reaction to the news that he had broken his neck and would be confined to a wheelchair. He was left paralysed from the neck down after falling from his bike at Killarney National Park when he was 16 years old and many have found his response to his misfortune inspiring.
I said to myself ‘Ian, there’s not much you can do here. Crying isn’t going to make me stand up and run around the place again.’ I always say to myself if you can’t stand up, stand out.
Asked about people who inspire him, O’Connell named Conor McGregor and his dedication to Mixed Martial Arts.
White talks fight to Kimmel
White appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the upcoming fight. Kimmel asks if he thinks Conor has a chance at all to beat Floyd Mayweather.
I do…Floyd Mayweather is going to be 41 years old this year. If there’s a kink in that armour, it has been with southpaws. Conor McGregor is a southpaw, and he hits like a truck. He’s got 12 rounds to land that punch…When he hits people they go, and if he hits Floyd, I think he will hurt him, and when he hurts people he puts them away.
Is this like a cricket team trying to win the World Series?
No, normally, when boxers fight boxers, there’s a system to it. McGregor will be completely unorthodox. It’s what makes this fight so intriguing.
Kim K: Kanye, Not Monica Rose, responsible for style transformation
On Watch What Happens Live!, Cohen asks Kim K about her relationship with celebrity stylist Monica Rose:
The entire Kardashian/Jenner clan used a stylist named Monica rose. You all recently unfollowed her on social media and are no longer associated with her. Can you give us the real reason that she is no longer in your universe?
Shit. I will say…Y’know what. I haven’t worked with her in maybe four years, so my reason is not connected with this. But I will say that I read that it was said that she was the reason for my makeover when I met Kanye. And I will say that Kanye got me a new team and that was documented….And for me that I wanted a new vibe, and Kanye wanted to give me a makeover…I just wanted a change, but I recently heard that…[As for the family], you’d have to ask Khloe, Kendall and Kylie, and the girls.
Efron: Madonna is a UFC fan

Rousey bonded with Diesel over online gaming
In an interview with O’Brien on Conan, Rousey talks about how she became friends with Diesel over online gaming.
I’ve been playing Pokemon for 18 years, and that’s actually how me and Vin Diesel became friends…every night after filming we’d set up computers and like the other side of the room, and like, ‘Ok we’re going to go to this dungeon!’…I like talking to people online who have no idea who I am.
‘This is definitely one of my last fights’
On the The Ellen Show Rousey says that she is getting ready to retire after her fight with Amanda nunes.
I am wrapping it up. This is definitely one of my last fights,’ she said of UFC 207. Everyone better watch because the show isn’t going to be around forever…I have been training twice a day since the beginning of August, so I finally feel like I am super ninja good…It’s the weeks and weeks of buildup before hand and you know you are fighting this one person. It’s like your showdown, the most important thing in your whole life and then millions of people are watching. It’s that buildup for weeks on end. If it just happened right now I wouldn’t be nervous at all,’ Ronda added. ‘It’s the waiting.

McGregor appears on Diaz interview
During Diaz’s appearance on Conan, O’Brien shows him comments by McGregor.
I just hope he’s not up on that stage wearing that stupid black t-shirt he’s never out of. The boy’s been wearing that same damn t-shirt for the last 20 years or something. I’m taking this contest very, very seriously. I’ve flown in specific body types to replicate Nate’s skinny, tall frame. The boy won the lotto the last time. He knows it, I know it. Well, August 20 I get my revenge and I look forward to it.
The truth came out, and the truth will come out on the 20th, when it will come out again.
UFC 200 press conference
White introduces the fighters for UFC 200. McGregor is not present. Diaz:
I didn’t ask for that fight, but he asked for it. And if that ain’t gonna happen, I’m going on Vacation…He’s got a lot of catching up to do, so there ain’t no time for this [media] shit. I’ve dodging all this for years, so it’s all good. Let him do his thing, get his training on, and let him fight.
Listen, I just don’t see how that’s fair. These people have come from all over the world. The fights still three months away, that’s why we do it so early so we try not to interfere with their lives. People want Conor to fight, so do the fans, so do the media, everybody..You think I don’t want Conor to fight? Of course I do. It’s not right, you can’t not show up for this stuff. [Reporter: So you’re ruling him out at this point?]. Yeah!
Presents 2016 steering wheel
Hamilton presents his car’s 2016 steering wheel. He says that he helped design the wheel, cutting 250 grams by slicing off the base of the handgrips where they meet the centre puck, unnecessary due to the way he holds the wheel while racing. There’s a large central display as in previous years, buttons for brake bias, DRS, pit lane speed limiting, three manettinos for engine/fuel strategy, engine mapping, and a central multifunction dial that influences everything from tyre swaps in the pits to cruise control.
I’m really proud of it actually, because when I joined this team, I took a lot of pride in trying to work with the engineers to lose a lot of weight in the wheel.. When I joined we actually had a big steering wheel…there was no need to continue connecting the bottom of the grip to the central part of the wheel…My favorite buttons are the marker button, for any issues I have, to remind me when I come back to analyse the data; the DRS and the pit buttons, and those to adjust the braking.
