Conor McGregor belittles Nurmagomedov's win, calls his performance 'Sloppy'

Conor McGregor belittles Nurmagomedov's win, calls his performance 'Sloppy'

After Espinoza responded to a tirade from White on the domestic take for the August 26 boxing match between McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Floyd Mayweather (50-0 boxing), the UFC lightweight champion got in the middle to back up his promoter.

Conor McGregor was one of the most talked about athletes in 2017 even though he fought just once.

Confusion surrounded the lightweight title picture but UFC President Dana White has since shed light on how he sees the matchmaking process playing out in the coming months. "So Conor has some big decisions to make here, really quick".

"As long as Conor is willing to fight by March, we could do Khabib versus Tony and then the victor fights Conor for the title", White told Yahoo Sports.

Ryan Shazier Has Regained Feeling In Legs
The 25-year-old Ryan Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery after the December 4 game in Cincinnati and has started rehab. Where Ryan grew up in Florida, it was all about football; young kids dream of playing pro. "We're taking it one day at a time".


White said if McGregor doesn't fight until August or September, the Irishmen wouldn't have defended his lightweight crown in over two years. In that time, Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov have both taken on tough opponents and dominated them.

As to get a true reflection of how an global combat sports event in today's time particularly does, where the United States is no longer the sole player in boxing (or in other combat sports anymore), you have to factor in everything around the world, as boxing is an worldwide sport now.

"Think about this and I don't give a shit about Showtime's fucking full of shit press release they put out - it's the biggest fight ever".

As long as Conor is willing to (book a) fight by March, we could do Khabib versus Tony.

"As long as Conor is willing to fight by March, we could do Khabib versus Tony and then the victor fights Conor for the title".

Now, there is an interim title holder in the division who comes in the shape of Tony Ferguson chomping impatiently at the bit for the unification bout which makes sense.

"So, Conor has done very well, he's made a lot of money, and if he decides that he doesn't want to fight again for another, however long, that's up to him". That's his choice and his decision. "Tony for the title - not the interim title". "We've laid out a really nice offer for him and he's a smart kid, I think we'll figure it out". I need only real fight.
