Coach Kavanagh targets St. Patrick’s Day in New York for McGregor’s next fight

Makes Statement

Coach Kavanagh says March 17th at Madison Square Garden in New York is a possible date for McGregor’s next fight. Reports last month suggested that McGregor had booked a comeback bout with Nate Diaz that was initially scheduled for December 30th at UFC 219. According to leading MMA journalist Ariel Helwani, that fight and date is still the plan for all parties concerned, but a deal is still far from being finalised. Appearing on The Late Late Show, Kavanagh hinted at an alternative date of March 17th:

We’re already talking about 2018 and some fights in 2018. I’m looking forward to getting him back in the gym and back into the rigmarole of training. I think that’s best for him. I keep saying it out there – so hopefully it becomes a reality – but I would love Madison Square Garden, St. Patrick’s Day, New York, for a Conor fight in the UFC.

Tony Ferguson: McGregor and Diaz are pussies for not fighting

Makes Statement

 

McGregor and Diaz have both been on Ferguson’s radar ever since his proposed interim lightweight title fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov fell through. Ferguson was offered a summer bout with Diaz, but Diaz pulled out of the proposed fight, leading Ferguson to call him a ‘bitch’. Ferguson is also upset that McGregor has not come back to MMA to fight him.

Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor] are a bunch of b****es. They want to go and they want to talk – look, we can f*****g put this s**t out on video and we can make this a money fight. If you guys really wanna get gangster, let’s do that sh-t. If you want to f*****g put on money, let’s put it on paper…Nate, I will f****n’ Stockton slap the sh-t out of you, kid. You don’t f*****g know me, dude. Straight up. Same thing with Conor McGregor…You guys are a bunch of b****es, and you guys are a bunch of fakes. If you wanna’ fight while we’re here in the UFC, why don’t you come and sign on the dotted line after you get your sh-t together and defend your f*****g belt, Conor?

Ferguson on possible McGregor-Diaz III: I will Stockton slap the s**t out of Nate

Makes Statement

Should Ferguson win the interim lightweight belt at UFC 216 against Kevin Lee, he would expect to be first to face current UFC lightweight champion McGregor, whenever McGregor decides to return to MMA. But rumors, and McGregor’s coaching staff, suggest that McGregor will complete his trilogy with Diaz when he next defends his lightweight belt. Ferguson says the UFC needs to honor his belt and make McGregor face him should he win.

I believe that they absolutely need to. If that’s my belt and he has the belt, they need to unify both belts. F**k that Nate Diaz three shit. Both those b**ches f**in – they want to try and act like they want to go and make money. Nate don’t want to fight. He’s trying to recover from a f**king hit that he took with his management and all that other things. McGregor’s gotta defend or vacate. He’s gotta defend that belt, he needs to come back. If not, there goes his legacy, there goes the UFC s**t. I mean, really, legitimately, why do we have rankings? Why do we have a belt system? Why do we have all this other stuff?

Diaz coach: ‘McGregor’s not gonna have a chance’

Makes Statement

As talk of a trilogy match between McGregor and Diaz hots up, Diaz’ coach Perez, believes McGregor will suffer his second UFC loss:

If Nathan goes through training camp with no injuries, McGregor’s not gonna have a chance… I mean, they think McGregor can box, Nathan can box. Right now in the last two fights he fought him, the first time was 11-day notice, so it wasn’t enough time but it was enough time to get a win. Second time he got injured so he had to lay back, so it put him back as far as being in shape and being accurate in timing. And people were thinking, ‘oh, he’s gonna come back and be better,’ no, they don’t see the outcome of it, the true outcome of what happened…These guys are true warriors, they go out there and still fight. So as far as McGregor coming out in the cage if he fights Nathan and Nathan gets in shape, it should be a good fight, a great fight, because Nathan can move and he’s got great footwork and he can throw a lot of combinations and make McGregor miss, counter off of it, use his reach.

Coach: Diaz ‘needs to get paid at least $30 million’ for McGregor trilogy

Makes Statement

Diaz’s boxing coach Richard Perez says he hopes the big payout for McGregor from the Mayweather fight, could mean more money for his future UFC opponents, particularly Diaz. Diaz’ last two UFC fights were against McGregor in 2016, and he made $2.6 million dollars in those bouts combined. After seeing what McGregor made against Mayweather, and the potential money that could be made in a trilogy bout with McGregor in the UFC, Perez expects 10 times more.

At least $20 million, $30 million. Come on! UFC’s making a whole lot of money, a whole lot of money and they’re pocketing it. They’re giving more to McGregor, so it’s not fair because it takes two in that ring to draw a crowd – I mean, a good two fighters. It’s just like Mayweather when he fought Berto. It was not even sold out at all. It was embarrassing. It’s because that guy couldn’t draw a crowd. See, that’s what I’m saying, it’s the fighters that draw the crowd, and Nathan and McGregor, third one would be outstanding. Everyone knows that. So he needs to get paid at least $30 million easy.

McGregor calls out Diaz to complete trilogy at 155lbs

Makes Statement

McGgregor calls out Diaz for a third fight as his return to the UFC octagon. It’s 1-1 between the two fighters and McGregor is offering Diaz a shot at his lightweight title should the California fighter want to meet him for a third time. McGregor believes that because he re-matched and beat Diaz at 170 pounds, it’s only fair that Diaz comes down to 155 pounds to meet him for the decider.

I faced him at 170lbs, he beat me. I re-matched him at 170lbs, I beat him. Now I’m the 155lbs champion, now if he wants that fight, he must come down – that’s a fair trade. I didn’t ask for the rematch at a lower weight. I asked for it at the exact same weight. I thought that was a fair play move on my behalf and I came in and I won. So now I won the 155lb title after that, so if he wants the fight he has to make the 155lb limit.

Diaz: If I was McGregor I’d beat Malignaggi’s ass

Makes Statement

Diaz talks about boxers who are criticizing McGregor.

And now all the boxers are criticizing Conor, and Conor won’t get embarrassed, but it’s a real arrogant thing to say…Sparring with some clown from wherever…I’ll beat that guy’s ass too…That guy was on the internet, talking sh-t about him the other day? What kind of sparring partner have you got? I’d shove that guy in the gym and beat his ass if I was Conor…I’d box him in the ring, whoop his ass, and then throw him down at the end…Most people in MMA can’t box. Need a lot of work. Boxers are clowns sometimes…I’m never taking the MMA fighters’over the boxers’ side, when it comes to punching…but we’re talking real fighters now you one-dimensional boxing f-cks.

Nick Diaz: If McGregor can hit Nate, he can hit Mayweather

Makes Statement

Nick Diaz says McGregor has an understanding of boxing that could work against Mayweather.

As far as MMA, I want to say there’s maybe five guys that do jiu-jitsu that have an actual level of understanding when it comes to boxing. He obviously does. I feel like, if he can hit my brother he can definitely can put up somewhat of a fight with Floyd, if not actually bring him an actual challenge…I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I could say one thing, I could be wrong. Also, the ups and downs of life, you never know what’s going on. Either one of these guys could have a bad – like the last time my brother fought he had broken ribs, torn rib tissue. Neither one of those fights worked out for him. He had 13 days the first time and the next time he was injured. I was there for it.

Mayweather may ‘walk out’ with Diaz, but not Bieber

Makes Statement

Jason Lee, from Mayweather’s entourage, says Mayweather may be walking out with Diaz at the upcoming fight. McGregor lost to Diaz in March of 2016, then beat him in UFC 202, in August 2016.

I was just in London with Floyd when the whole shit went down with Conor and I’m going to make the call to Nate Diaz. I would love to see him walk out with Floyd.

Mayweather has walked out to the ring a number of times with Justin Bieber, but Lee says he doesn’t think Bieber will be there this time.

Bieber found Jesus and he’s somewhere prayed-up. I don’t officially want to say that [Bieber will not walk out with Floyd]. But I just want to say I don’t see Bieber walking out with Floyd.

McGregor ‘would like to’ fight Nurmagomedov; Diaz ‘so bitter’

Makes Statement

Following the final press conference of the world tour in London, McGregor talks about fighting Nurmagomedov in Russia:

It’s certainly one of the things I would like to do. Whether it’s next, I don’t know. I don’t even know how close the Russia thing is. Whether Khabib can pull his shit together; he missed weight…There’s a few of them in the mix. A few of them need to pull their shit together, though, and get interest going and get me interested. Right now I don’t actually see anything.

On Nate Diaz:

That Diaz trilogy is also on my mind. He should really be thankful. Before he fought me he was [getting paid] 20,000 to show and 20,000 to win. His 19th fight in the UFC, and he was on 40 grand. Now he’s a multi-millionaire. So, I don’t know why he’s sitting there so bitter. Maybe them smacks he took in that rematch messed with his head a little bit. I hope not, but I think they did.

Diaz sued for $1 million by former agent over McGregor rematch profits

Files Suit

The Ballenge Group, Diaz’s former managers, files a $1 million suit in District Court in Dallas, claiming they had worked with the fighter since 2014 on several big fights including Rafael Dos Anjos, Michael Johnson and the first McGregor fight at UFC 196. Ballengee claims that in July 2016 — after sealing the deal for Nate to fight Conor at UFC 202 in August — that Nate “unexpectedly” fired them and did not pay them their cut for the UFC 202 fight, which was reportedly the biggest UFC pay-per-view ever at the time. Ballenge lawyer:

My clients performed their job, what Nate Diaz asked them to do. They are due for that. The lawsuit alleges that Diaz and [his attorney] Sam Awad conspired to get Leslie Smith to also fire Ballengee and to not pay Ballengee. Awad, as the mastermind of the conspiracy, he and Nate left, then talked Smith into doing the same thing.

Diaz has made no comment on the suit.

Ferguson to Diaz: ‘You’re delusional, I’m not in cahoots with McGregor’

Makes Statement

Ferguson responds to Diaz’s claims that he, McGregor and their manager, Audie Attar, were working together to book a big money fight while McGregor purses a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. In May Diaz said:

I heard Tony’s manager talking, saying that I need to get a fire up under Conor McGregor’s ass if I want to fight him for the third time. Like, I gotta do what? You guys should fight each other, motherf-cker. You guys have the same manager. You guys are working together against me.

To which Ferguson says:

He smokes a lot of good weed, I guess, because he’s got a lot of time on his hands just to do that. The dude’s delusional, man. Obviously I’m not in cahoots with McGregor. If you think that I am, then you’re f-cking high as f-ck. Straight up, he’s smoking that wacky tobacky, because I’m not. I don’t like the dude [McGregor]…Look, this guy was the last person that fought the guy that I want to get to.

Diaz doesn’t want third McGregor fight

Makes Statement

Diaz says he does not want to fight McGregor again.

I don’t want a third fight. F-ck Conor, he can f-ck himself. I never got a compliment for whooping the golden child’s ass. I was made out to be a 200-pound monster who Conor came back and beat. I deserve to be treated with more respect than that…If Floyd beats Conor, who gives a f-ck? I already beat Conor. You beat a guy whose ass I already whooped. I’m calling their bluff. Let’s make the fight happen and then I got the winner.

Makes Statement

Diaz says he turned down a fight with Ferguson, and that he will not fight this year.

I’ve seen rumors about me and my brother fighting people but we haven’t done much talking. I think [the UFC] is trying to bring us back in but all the pressure is coming from these rumors [about who we are fighting]. I plan on sitting out this year and I’m fighting nobody. [The UFC] wants me to fight Tony Ferguson,” Diaz said. “I gladly accepted that fight and then I gladly turned it down because of circumstances. I’m all about the money. If it wasn’t about the money, then what the f-ck are we doing it for?” Diaz said. “[After I turned the fight down], I was ignored.

The Nate Diaz fight interests him..Nate’s sitting on the sidelines (but) you’ve got to get Conor excited. If you want Conor to be excited about you, you gotta go in there and fight, if you want to fight him in the future. Nate Diaz vs. Tony Ferguson for the interim title, that creates narrative.

Ferguson to Diaz: Stop acting like McGregor’s ‘ex-girlfriend’ and fight

Makes Statement

Ferguson, who hasn’t fought since summer 2016, says he wants to fight Diaz, while Diaz has said he wants a trilogy fight with McGregor.

Is [a Diaz fight] worth $60 in pay-per-view? Even one round of two Mexicans going toe-to-toe is going to have every fan around the world buying. That’s the kind of fight I want, and that’s what he wants, too, unless the money has gone to his head…He’s [all over] McGregor. He’s like a bad ex-girlfriend. You can wait for McNuggets, but we all know if you wait for that fool and he fights Mayweather and never fights again, you might never get a chance at another big-money fight besides [me]. I’m giving you a shot. If you don’t want it, perfect. If you like it, sign on the dotted line and let’s move on. You’re ranked, what? No. 8 or 9? Don’t you want to be better than that? Shit, dude, the last guy you beat [McGregor] is ranked higher than you. Don’t you want an opportunity at the belt? You’re skipping a couple names. I’m giving you an opportunity. I’m doing you a favor.

$150,000 bottle-throwing fine reduced to $25,000

Judgement

At a hearing in Las Vegas McGregor’s punishment for the water-bottle throwing incident before UFC 202 is reduced from $150,000 and 50 hours community service to $25,000 and 25 hours of community service, the same terms suggested by the Nevada attorney general’s office ahead of the initial hearing in October 2016. McGregor has six months to complete the community service and can do so in either Dublin or Las Vegas. The board’s chairman suggests that Nate Diaz, who was fined $50,000 and given 50 hours of community service for his part in the incident, should be reheard. NSAC executive director Bennett:

I just didn’t think [the original $150,000 fine] was fair.

Diaz: McGregor could beat Mayweather with an early strike

Makes Statement

Diaz says McGregor can beat Mayweather if he strikes early.

I think it’s a big publicity stunt…[McGregor’s] got an amateur style, where he’s got the good movement and punches for six, eight minutes. That time equates to about two rounds out of the 10 in a full boxing match. Anybody can be good for … six, seven minutes — anybody — and they all have that puncher’s chance. But ready to go round after round and he’s gonna be a hard person to get a hold of, so it’s gonna be rough one.

Diaz says he will fight McGregor-Mayweather winner

Makes Statement

Yeah, so they said I was waiting for Conor McGregor but I wasn’t waiting for Conor McGregor. I already beat him twice, so I was just training and saying if I was gonna fight again anytime soon, it was gonna be a big deal fight….Now they’re talking all this McGregor-Mayweather stuff, I don’t know how real or fake it is, but it sounds like it could, who knows? Money talks. So all I know is I’m the only one with the credentials to fight both of those guys. They claim they’re the best in the world. Mayweather has been for years at boxing and McGregor, I just beat him twice and everybody forgets that. So, I got winner, straight up. I’m in the right place to be doing it with all the best boxers in the world.

White also says he’s turned down multiple fight offers. He says the Diaz brothers currently are at the top of the list in terms of struggling to put fights together, so he can’t predict when either will next be seen inside the octagon.

We just offered Nate Diaz a fight, and we’re waiting to hear back from him, so we’ll see. These guys say they want a fight – I offered Nick Diaz two fights. He turned down two fights. I offered him Robbie Lawler. Robbie Lawler accepted the fight. Then I offered him Demian Maia. Nick Diaz turned down two fights. And then we just offered Nate a fight…The most difficult to get into the octagon? Right now, it’s the Diaz brothers – right here, right now. But throughout history? I don’t know.

Diaz is a bitch. I still have respect for him, but when he took the video call from Floyd, he became a bitch.He should have told Mayweather to f-ck off. Then it would have been me against Nate. So f-ck Nate, f-ck Nick, f-ck the Diaz brothers. And if you wanna be down with the Diaz Brothers then f-ck you too! It was the biggest f-cking bitch move I ever saw..Me and Nate will throw down again. And I imagine that it will be at lightweight. His mates should say, ‘You’re face is dropping to the left. You should chill and enjoy the money’. But I’m sure me and Nate will fight again.

White: Diaz trilogy fight could ‘ruin’ McGregor

Makes Statement

White says he doesn’t want McGregor to fight a “trilogy” fight with Diaz.

The problem with the rubber match is Diaz is a 170-pounder. He’s a massive guy. Conor is a very talented guy, he’s very, very good. Every time he goes out there he looks better… [But] we should have never done it in the first place. That’s what weight classes are for. They wanted to do it, we did it. They wanted to do it again, we did it again. They’re 1-1. There’s only so many of those wars you can be in in your career. It takes a lot out of you. Some guys go into wars like that and they’re never the same after it. Look at Meldrick Taylor when he fought Julio Cesar Chavez. He was never the same after that fight. We’ve had those type of fights too. I believe that Rory MacDonald was never the same after the Robbie Lawler fight. That fight ruined him. I don’t want to do that to someone special like Conor McGregor. It’s just not right.

But the UFC wouldn’t let me go. So I have been stuck in these contracts and stuff. Now [McGregor] is talking about this Mayweather stuff and it’s getting all this hype, and I’m like ‘Do your thing with Mayweather.’ But if they let him out to box, then I’m boxing somebody too – somebody mainstream on the same card. Or another card – whatever. But 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. I don’t think they want me in there anyway, so I might as well stay out.

Roddy: Woodley or Diaz ideal for next McGregor fight

Makes Statement

McGregor’s striking coach says he would like to see him fight for a third belt, preferring Woodley or Diaz over Nurmagomedov. Roddy:

Maybe [Tyron] Woodley,. For me, for him to go up and compete for a third belt [welterweight], maybe Woodley. [Nate] Diaz again is another great one. I think it’s what fans would want to see. They want to see something special again, the Diaz fight again is special. The Woodley fight is special…You can’t really doubt Khabib at this stage. He’s a phenomenal grappler and a phenomenal wrestler. But I don’t know whether the excitement is there, you know? Obviously for Conor it’s about the pay-per-views. It’s about the money. Whether Khabib will hit the pay-per-views for him I just don’t know…He poses a different threat so it would be good to sort of work out what strikes are going to land on him. He can be hit as well, I will say that. He got hit a bit in his last fight.

McGregor had staph infection weeks before first Diaz fight

Makes Statement

Rogan says a possible reason McGregor lost the first fight against Diaz was that he had a staph infection weeks before the fight.

The guy steps in, loses to Diaz, takes the Diaz fight on short notice-by the way, after a staph infection. Here’s something not a lot of people know, he had a pretty significant staph infection and was on antibiotics until like, I think two weeks before the fight. If you don’t think that drains your gas tank you’ve never had a staph infection, and you’ve never taken antibiotics. They’re brutal on your whole body. Your body is made up of all this shit you don’t consider to be you, but it is you, stomach flora is a real part of you. Your body is essentially an ecosystem, and when you have a staph infection, staph infections are dangerous as f-ck and people die from them. So they hit you with some heavy duty antibiotics, I’ve had staph twice and it’s not fun. The first time I had it, I took the medication and I couldn’t believe how I felt. So weird, I felt lightheaded, I felt weak, I was like ‘woah’. It’s super strong stuff. I was like ‘Wow, imagine this guy 2 weeks after that.

Talks about UFC 205, trilogy fight

Interview

Diaz talks about McGregor’s performance at UFC 205, saying the UFC is shutting him out.

It’s artificial. It’s good timing for him. They handed it right to him…It’s funny how they left me out of the picture. The fight went exactly as I expected…The UFC didn’t want to give me tickets to this fight…they wanted to keep me out the mix. I was up in in a club box. After the fight everyone turned around and is looking at me…They gave Nick Jonas my seat…Of course [I want No. 3]. I’m not begging for no fight. I don’t need to fight anyone. I don’t even need to do this interview…If they game me all that attention I would take this too…UFC knows that [Fight 3] is a bad idea…Congratulations to Conor, he did a great job, got the two belts.

Tells Nevada ‘good luck’ collecting fine

McGregor says that he’s not planning on fighting in Nevada any time in the near future, and that he has no intentions of paying the $150,000 fine. If McGregor doesn’t pay his fine or complete his community service, he could face a hard time getting a license to fight again in the state but from the sound of things that won’t be a problem.

I don’t see Nevada in my future, for the foreseeable future is how I see it. I’m free to do what I want. I’m good. I’m good. New York, New York. That’s what I think…I thought they might respect [me calling in] a little bit more. I owned up. I manned up. I’m here. I apologized. I’m not trying to blame nobody, although they fired the rounds off first. I didn’t think they would even go that route because I didn’t think this was like a real thing. Are they going to come and arrest me or what the (expletive) is that?..I wanted to give them the respect and I felt they would have respected that but they didn’t. So, whatever. It is what it is. Good luck trying to get it.

On Diaz:

I do not wish to see Nate get any more or any less than me. I don’t want to see either of us have something like this happen. But we’ll see. I don’t know. If they went that way on me I don’t know what way they’re going to go on him. He threw the bottle first, but I don’t wish he get more than me or anything like that. I just wish we’d get it sorted out and get on with it and carry on.
