Nurmagomedov confirms McGregor negotiations

Makes Statement

Nurmagomedov says the UFC is working on his proposed bout with McGregor.

Very soon, I’m going to come to the USA to begin my training camp. When the UFC give me fight, I’m going to come to California and I’m going to stay there in AKA with my family nine weeks before fight. I’m going to defend my Inshallah (god willing) this year.

But the UFC is working on fight, me versus Conor…If they give (me) Conor, I’m going to fight…If they give me different opponents; ‘GSP’ or the winner of (Eddie) Alvarez versus (Dustin) Poirier. It doesn’t matter, let’s go.

Makes Statement

Nurmgomedov says he will ‘destroy’ McGregor if they were to fight.

In what round will I be able to knock McGregor out? I do not know, and no one can know this. I’m going to destroy him…I do not yet know who my opponent will be…The fight will likely take place in Las Vegas. I want to fight McGregor; the fans are also waiting for this fight. I hope that Conor wants this fight…He talked a lot but for some reason, as soon as it came down to real negotiations about the fight, he fell silent.

Calls Tennessee whiskey ageing process ‘a crime’

Makes Statement

McGregor discusses the merits of Tennessee whiskey with a fan on social media.

Thank you for this message. I recognise and respect Tennessee as solid whiskey distillers. Your methods of aging whiskey over 2 years, and in charred brand new barrels however, is a crime where I come from…Using corn, rye or wheat over grain is another conversation altogether. However, forgetting your choice of ingredients, whatever they are, you must let those ingredients age sufficiently. Allow the ingredients the correct time to age and allow them to age in barrels as old as Whiskey itself. They deserve time to reach their maximum flavor potential. We do not even know what American whiskey truly tastes like, because to gage a correct and fair opinion of it, it needs to be given the correct and fair time to age…Thank you for this message however, I appreciate it and it motivates me to continue. I respect your state, and your land, and I will be in Tennessee in the very near future. Along with all of the other major states of the United States of America. I will be there with my own Irish made Whiskey for you all.

The Mountain: I’d take down McGregor in 10 seconds

Makes Statement

Bjornsson, who enjoyed a slow-paced sparring session with McGregor in 2015, warns the Irishman that if they were to throw down for real, he could expect a similar fate.

Bring me shorts and put us in a cage, and I’ll fight him again. If I get a grab on him  it would be over in 10 seconds.

When asked how many McGregors it would take to beat him:

Maybe five. [In the sparring session] I knew I could take him down, but I just didn’t want to break him,. He felt really light. I had him a few times, but I just didn’t want to break him. He’s quick and slippery, so it’s hard to get a grip. There were moments where I could have just messed him [up]. There’s a huge size difference between me and him, but I’m not used to getting punched. I’m no fighter; I’m wearing jeans and shoes. I just took my shirt off, and we were joking.

Although Namajunas didn’t suffer any injuries like Chiesa or Borg, she was still shaken up by the incident as she was very close to the window that McGregor attacked.

We’re talking, but if it takes too long, I don’t want to do that. We won’t wait long. I want to fight Conor and if he can fight, I will fight him. If he wants to fight this year, then we can fight. Otherwise, I don’t know.

Mayweather: Next fight could be in the octagon with McGregor

Makes Statement

Mayweather admits McGregor UFC fight is possible as he reveals desire to come out of retirement.

Retirement has been great but as everybody knows, I go to retirement, I come back. Is it possible I’ll come back? Yes, but if I do, it has to be in the octagon…I spoke with my team. Al Hayman says no, but I spoke with Showtime and CBS. If we can get together with Dana White and the UFC to make a mega-fight happen, one fight, it could be against Conor McGregor, we don’t know…Or we could do a multi-fight deal. But Showtime and CBS have to be involved if I do a multi-fight MMA deal…When I do go to the octagon I look forward to going to probably around 145 (lbs), if that’s a weight class. But right now I’ve got my promoter hat on…We don’t know (if we’re going to do it). (Do I want to?) Absolutely. Only if the money is right. Of course the numbers are going to be crazy…I can contradict myself. I can change my mind. I can do whatever I want to do, I’m Floyd Mayweather. I would not box again.

McGregor ‘wants Nurmagomedov fight no matter what it takes’

Rumor/unconfirmed

The Irish Sun reports a source close to McGregor’s camp saying McGregor is desperate to fight Nurmagomedov. The source also says McGregor is ready to pass up on a potential UFC record payday and is willing to do all it takes to make up with UFC boss White, after his Brooklyn arrest. Source:

Conor is trying to do everything he possibly can to get back into the cage and wants Khabib no matter what it takes. He has never wanted a fight so much. He doesn’t care about the money for once, he just wants to get this guy one on one as he feels this whole situation was caused by him and he wants to make him pay. He would take this fight on for peanuts, he wants to make it happen.

Nurmagomedov wants McGregor fight

Makes Statement

After Nurmagomedov’s win over Iaquinta strips McGregor of his UFC lightweight title, the Russian fighter says he wants to face McGregor in the octagon.

We have to finish this beef. Beef, chicken, or something like this. He have to stop eat Burger Kings and — you want to fight? Come. I told you guys, we’re gonna make him humble. I told you guys, I’m gonna change this game. Now, only one champion. No more fake champions. No more champion who never defend his title, or something like this. Now, UFC have champion, and this champion want to defend his title. You want to fight? Come here…Inside the cage, come. Outside the cage, let me know without camera, without all this media. Like men. He come when a lot of security here, outside the bus, inside the bus, security here, don’t let me go out. Like, he try to, ‘Hey, come out,’ like this. Why you need this show up? Let me know and that’s it, any time…He have to fight with me. Now, no more this all fake champions. You guys remember when he put tweet, ‘Beg me.’ Please, beg me…We have to finish this. It’s going to be very big fight. It’s going to be very big fight, I think. Let’s go. I am ready for this. November, September in Moscow, November in New York. Any time. Let’s go. Let’s fight in Africa or somewhere. I am here.

White: McGregor arrest warrant issued

Makes Statement

Whits says there is an arrest warrant out for McGregor’s arrest:

There is a warrant out for Conor McGregor’s arrest. They’re looking for him right now. His plane cannot take off. He cannot leave the state of New York with this warrant. He’ll be grounded and I’m assuming eventually if they don’t catch him, he’ll turn himself in. You can imagine he’s gonna be sued beyond belief, and this was a real bad career move for him.

Listen, you don’t like Khabib and you don’t like what happened (with Lobov) or whatever? Then fight Khabib. You can come in here and you can do it legally. This fight’s happening Saturday. We could have talked and made the Khabib fight right after. You could do whatever you wanted to Khabib within the limits of the rules of fighting. But you want to grab 30 friends and come down here and do what you did today? It’s disgusting, and I don’t think anybody is going to be huge Conor McGregor fans after this.

McGregor takes a dolly from the side of the garage and throws it at the coach, breaking a window. Chiesa suffers cuts from broken glass. Chiesa’s coach:

Conor went bananas and put a beating on the van that we were in looking for Khabib. A million security guards had to restrain him. Mike’s cut up now. He’s got marks on him, for sure. I don’t think it’s too serious.

Cena: McGregor promotes better than anyone else

Makes Statement

Cena says professional wrestlers are the greatest salesmen (and women) in the world but the boxing match between McGregor and Mayweather may have been even better promoted. Cena says McGregor was so good at convincing combat sports fans to shell out $100 for his “Money” bout, that similar tactics in pro wrestling would put everyone else out of business.

He would do fantastic. Hell, he would put me out of work. He gets the entertainment aspect of sport, and I think he gets it as good, or better, than anyone else. The way he promoted the fight against Mayweather… that’s what we do. He did it as good, or better, than us.

St-Pierre rejects McGregor ‘money fight’

Makes Statement

St-Pierre has been linked with a mega-money fight against McGregor ever since he signed up for a new four-fight deal with the UFC in February 2017. Although St-Pierre says he is well aware of the huge payday a fight with McGregor would bring him, he says he is only interested in fights that will add to his legacy in the sport.

The thing is about Conor McGregor, money wise, I believe he’s the one who can put more money on the table. However, legacy wise, I don’t think he’s the guy (to fight). He’s the main guy; he brought the sport to a different level. He’s the most charismatic guy. He sells; he’s the biggest seller in the sport. If you talk about legacy, if I come back, for legacy, that’s what interests me the most – more than the money. Money, yes it’s good. But if I come back, it’d be more for legacy a legacy match.

McGregor to lose UFC lightweight belt to Ferguson-Nurmagomedov winner on April 7

Makes Statement

UFC president White confirms that current lightweight champion Conor McGregor will lose his title to the winner of Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223 on April 7 in Brooklyn, New York.

That’s exactly right: As soon as one punch is thrown, it’s on for the full title and it’s only fair. They’ve both worked their way up to No. 1 and No. 2. They deserve a shot.

White says the lightweight division will move on in McGregor’s absence, in the same way McGregor’s featherweight title was stripped when he failed to defend it in nearly a year after knocking Jose Aldo out in 13 seconds.

This is good news for the fans. I always hear about, ‘What will you do if this guy leaves …’ This is a sport first. People leave, they’ve made money and moved on. It happens.

McGregor: Mayweather rematch will not happen

Makes Statement

McGregor takes to Instagram to say that talks between him and Mayweather, to meet in an MMA rematch, have ended unsuccessfully, as Mayweather has decided to remain in retirement.

I am happy for Floyd and his recent announcement that he is out of these current fight negotiations. It is the reason I never seeked the rematch in the first place. I was happy for him in retirement. My game is a very unforgiving one. It is not like other games. I understand completely him staying retired. I will now carry on in my negotiations and see where it goes. Have a great retirement Junior. Now come here and give your old man a hug for old time’s sake. I’m proud of you son. Yours truly, Senior.

Nurmagomedov: McGregor’s UFC career is over – ‘100%’ getting stripped

Makes Statement

Nurmagomedov says the fact that McGregor hasn’t stepped inside the Octagon in over 15 months is proof that he won’t be fighting in MMA ever again. He says McGregor’s team is focused on a rematch with Floyd Mayweather … instead of a real fight against him or Tony Ferguson — who he’s facing at UFC 223 in April. Nurmagomedov also says his contract for the Ferguson fight explicitly states they are fighting for the ‘real belt’ — which means the UFC is “100%” stripping Conor of his lightweight title.

I don’t think he gonna come back. When’s the last time Conor compete in MMA? Long time. He’s boxing guy.

Kavanagh: McGregor should fight Nurmagomedov or Ferguson before Diaz

Makes Statement

Coach Kavanagh says that a trilogy fight with Diaz was appealing after UFC 202, but is losing appeal since McGregor has continued to elevate himself while Diaz has been sitting on the sidelines.

Conor’s had an MMA fight and a boxing fight since and we haven’t seen Nate since. So I started changing and you could see it amongst the fans who … are the most important factor in all of this because they pay for the Pay-Per-Views… But you can see it was clearly becoming they wanted to see either Khabib or Tony in there rather than [Nate], probably for the same reason that we didn’t: Nate didn’t keep busy. So I don’t think it would be quite right for that to happen before the winner of [Khabib]-Tony, because Conor, [Khabib], and Tony have kept busy and Nate hasn’t…I think Nate should get one in in the meantime. Him vs. Woodley. I hear there are rumors of that or him against a good lightweight, and if the MMA gods smile, it would be a victory for him. Conor fights the winner of [Khabib-Tony] and then you’ve got this amazing superfight for New Year’s Eve.

Malignaggi: McGregor won’t risk an ‘a** whooping’ from me

Makes Statement

Malignaggi continues the war of words which started after his acrimonious departure from McGregor’s Mayweather match training camp, and after a video clip from one of their training sessions was released. Malignaggi is keen to settle the score with McGregor but doesn’t believe he’ll get the chance.

I don’t think McGregor is going to fight me, to be honest. I can keep baiting him or what-not but he has the sparring video and that video is not going to come out so he’s going to have the advantage over time. I don’t think he is going to fight me. He had his a** whooped in the sparring session and he has the whole world believing he didn’t so he’s not going to take a chance on that image and perception being changed.

Malignaggi: McGregor would be stupid to risk another asswhooping

Makes Statement

Speaking at the launch of Ultimate Boxxer – an entertainment company bidding revolutionise the fight game through eight-man, one-night elimination tournaments, Malignaggi says he will probably not get the chance to fight McGregor.

I don’t think McGregor is going to fight me, to be honest. I can keep baiting him or what-not but he has the sparring video and that video is not going to come out so he’s going to have the advantage over time. I don’t think he is going to fight me. He had his a** whooped in the sparring session and he has the whole world believing he didn’t so he’s not going to take a chance on that image and perception being changed. He’d be stupid to – if I was him, I’d be stupid to risk that perception changing because right now perception is reality. The reality wasn’t that but if that perception is reality, he’s going nowhere near me.

Bisping: McGregor would ‘destroy’ Mayweather in 35 seconds in the UFC

Makes Statement

On his podcast, Bisping says Mayweather would be beaten easily by McGregor in the Octagon.

I honestly can’t see Floyd Mayweather fighting mixed martial arts and certainly [not] in the UFC. If he does fight in the UFC it’s going to be against Conor McGregor…Conor McGregor in an MMA fight will f****** destroy Floyd Mayweather like he’s never seen…It takes so long to learn – so long to put the pieces of the puzzle together, so long to learn the grappling the transitions from the striking to the grappling. Conor McGregor would literally have a field day with Floyd Mayweather. I don’t know what [Mayweather]’s doing, he’s maybe trying to stay relevant, maybe he’s trying to hype his next boxing match, maybe he’s trying to get a rematch with Conor McGregor in the boxing world, I don’t know what he’s doing. But I will tell you this, everybody does have their price and apparently there was rumours floating round that a billion dollars was the price for a few fights in the UFC and a f****** billion dollars goes a long way. It would certainly be a record breaking pay-per-view, I don’t know if it’ll be more than McGregor vs Mayweather in a boxing ring but it certainly has the potential.

He’s engaging, we’re engaging, so we’ll see…Of course, I’m seeing all the stuff Floyd’s putting out, all the stuff in the media. If it is [just hype], it will follow him for the rest of his days that he did not do it…I said I would do it and I stepped up and I done it. His time now.

I can’t say when [he’ll be back]. As people who follow him on social media will see, he’s back, very motivated, training a lot. He’s in the gym every day. The plan seems to be forming and getting more exact every day that [he’ll be] back in the UFC this year. When and against who, I would be just guessing.

Ferguson: McGregor turned down fight

Makes Statement

Speaking on The MMA Hour, Ferguson says McGregor turned down a fight with him before he was offered his upcoming UFC 223 showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

As far as what they told me in the contract, that’s what they were telling me. They were saying, ‘Look, you’re fighting for the undisputed title.’ That was after they told me I was going to fight Conor McGregor and then just a whole bunch of s*** went down and I was like, you know what, I just got to deal with this. What happened was they offered me a fight with a fighter who didn’t want to fight…I don’t know if it was a contract issue or what it was, the dude doesn’t seem interested to defend his belt against the number one and defending interim lightweight champion. Now I’m the champion because he didn’t want to defend it. Defend or vacate so my campaign actually worked.

Nurmagomedov says he might deny McGregor a title shot

Makes Statement

Nurmagomedov says if he wins against Ferguson at UFC 223, he may deny McGregor a shot at the lightweight title upon his long-awaited return to MMA. He says he is more interested in his legacy than his bank balance.

I’m gonna make humble Conor. I’m gonna beat Tony and I’m gonna say to Conor, ‘Hey, you have to go into the [contender] line,’ because you have to deserve this. He has only one fight at 155 [pounds]. I am 25-0 at 155. Undefeated. Undisputed…I’m going to take this belt, and we’ll see what happens…Fighters try to make money with Conor but I’m not in this sport to make money. I can make money with other stuff in Russia, like a lot of money. I come here to make history, for my legacy.

UFC may strip McGregor’s lightweight title

Makes Statement

White warns McGregor he faces being stripped of his UFC lightweight title if he remains out of the octagon until September.

Conor has said he’s thinking about coming back in September. If he comes back in September that’s almost two years, that can’t happen, it’s not fair to everybody else…I love Conor, I respect Conor, I love everything he’s done for this company, but the belt would have to move on.

White says McGregor’s continued absence is unfair to his division rivals and added talks are under way for interim champion Tony Ferguson to take on undefeated Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov in a bout for the lightweight title.

You do Khabib versus Tony. We’re working on that fight now. If and when Conor comes back, he will get the first crack at the title.

McGregor: I’ll quit fighting before I suffer any brain damage

Makes Statement

McGregor insists he won’t take “stupid” risks and will quit fighting before he suffers any potential brain damage, as he looks to return to the UFC.

I always look at the end from a damage-taken standpoint. How much damage have I taken? How is my brain? How is my mental health? How is my physical body? How is my training? How is my preparation? How is my hunger for it? That is where I gauge how long I will do it and there is still a lot left in me.

McGregor admits he no longer fights for the financial gain, but for the love of the sport.

It is not necessarily a money thing for me. I am passionate about fighting. Fighting is what I love to do. I will continue to do it as long as I am healthy and willing to put in the work that it takes to do. I will not be stupid though. I will not notice things about myself and then continue to do it like many others before me…It is a dangerous, ruthless business and I am aware of that. Thankfully I am in a position of great wealth. I do not need to do it. I am doing it for the love of it. I will make my decision when the time comes.

Rutten: McGregor must defend or vacate title

Makes Statement

Rutten says McGregor must defend his title:

First of all, (he needs to fight) the interim champion. He needs to defend his title, it’s got to start there. I think Max Holloway is a fight that he needs to fight as well, if he still wants to fight it. Nate Diaz will be a great fight, but I think he’s holding the division hostage. He needs to defend his title. Otherwise, he’s going to have to step away from it.
