Bisping also added that a unification bout between McGregor and Ferguson also leaves Diaz out in the cold, with his financial demands for a third bout against McGregor having seemingly priced out White.
After last night's RAW and the reunion of The Shield, this year's TLC is taking shape. The doctors already know that I'm not injured.
John Kavanagh's interest in the Diaz trilogy has drawn some criticism online with many claiming that the SBG coach had even stated that McGregor/Diaz III is the fight that the fans wanted to see - a misrepresentation that Kavanagh himself was eager to correct. "These are the top dogs at self-promotion and trash talk". I think he would be asleep or the ref would have stepped in and have stopped the fight if Conor lands. That's why Dana is pushing the Ferguson fight.
"At the end of the day, it does not matter what he does, he is going to have a record-breaking event". Is he done with boxing? However, this often collides with the larger interests of his sport.
Last week, WWE chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon said McGregor would be "a perfect fit" for the WWE. Now that he's a megastar, risks are no longer so much in his interest. That's not terrible, but it isn't an elite defensive heavyweight either. The return of the great Georges St. Pierre next month will of course be a big event, but it doesn't feel as big as it should. The UFC lightweight champion is taking time off after his pro boxing debut in which he suffered a 10th-round TKO defeat to Floyd Mayweather. So there is no question that is going to happen.
"Conor needs his ass kicked and we need to unify that belt".
I want to fight someone ahead of me.
Holloway has gone one better, notching up an insane 11 wins on the trot since losing that unanimous decision to 'The Notorious'. It's hard to imagine he's the only one thinking that. Even if Borg is a physically gifted fighter, Johnson's mastery of all things MMA sets him apart. I think it'll be a good fight as well, it would be an interesting fight and yeah, but I don't know what's next.
A source to McGregor said: "Conor is a huge wrestling fan".
Borg is a lightning-fast fighter in his own right. Considering how young and injured they were the first time, who wouldn't want to see them go at it again? Both McGregor and Holloway have improved exponentially since they fought.
Former opponent Ian McCall broke down just what makes him so difficult to beat. "He defends the belt zero times", Ferguson said, via MMA Fighting.
