UFC 223 Embedded 1: Holloway vs Nurmagomedov Vlog Series

  • Conor McGregor Responds In Typical Fashion To Tony Ferguson's Injury

The correct take going into this Saturday night in Brooklyn, New York is to have Max Holloway body Nurmagomedov on the feet, force the Russian to go for a exhausted takedown attempt and then have Blessed tap out his opponent with a rear naked choke. While they ultimately landed on UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, there were a few other options on the table, including Brian Ortega and Eddie Alvarez. At least, it was enough time if his tweet about "staying ready" was in reference to the lightweight title fight.

If Blessed picks up the win, not only does he become the first man to defeat the feared Dagestani, but he'll join Conor McGregor as the only fighter to hold two championships in two different weight classes at the same time. All I can say is Max is a gangster.

Ferguson didn't think the injury was that serious, and that he worked through it until an MRI on March 31st. "I even talked about it happening but when it got like three to four weeks out, I just said 'F**k it, these guys are gonna fight".

UFC president Dana White has claimed that Conor McGregor is eyeing a September return to the Octagon. Happy Easter and to everyone out there, I believe there is a silver lining in this nightmare of a reality because this isn't an April fools.

Nate Diaz has taken aim at interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson over his withdrawal from his UFC 223 bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Larry King Repeal 2nd Amendment ... It Was Passed to Fight Off Slaves
If we don't vote out NRA-funded politicians standing in the way of common-sense gun safety legislation, the Second Amendment may be in danger.

Khabib Nurmagomedov said he specifically asked for Conor McGregor to replace Tony Ferguson in the UFC 223 main event. "The victor of this fight will be the champion". Don't get me wrong, Tony Ferguson is one of the absolute best submission artists in the UFC, and it would have been very entertaining to see him take on Khabib, who many regard as the best all-around grappler or the best ground and pound fighter in the world.

The fight will be for McGregor's lightweight belt, with the Irishman being stripped of his title as soon as the fight begins. "That's a tough weight cut for him". Fights in 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018 have been cancelled as a result of injury or, in last year's case, weight cutting complications.

The end of 2017 did not go well for former middleweight champion Michael Bisping.

"Me and Georges St-Pierre main event; they can fight prelims".

Per White, Ferguson is expected to lose his interim title, which he won by defeating Kevin Lee at UFC 216 in October.
