The welterweight legend joined an exclusive club on Saturday night by becoming just the fourth fighter in UFC history to claim a world title in two different classes. "So what the hell, why not give it a shot?" "But now I've put on muscle mass and I am comfortable here".

"Al and I haven't talked about this at all".

"I've never been dropped".

And in October, White told The Wall Street Journal's "The Unnamed Podvideocast" he might be interested in promoting boxing events under the Zuffa banner. He is, in fact, extending his company's promotional reach.

The Notorious Irishman will defend his UFC Lightweight Championship either in a trilogy fight against Nate Diaz or in a title-unification bout against Interim-155 pound Champ Tony Ferguson.

Whittaker, who became the interim middleweight champion back in June, is expected to face St-Pierre next, and the Australian is fairly confident of what the result would be.

Furthermore, he emphasized that 'The Notorious' Conor McGregor's next fight 'will be in Vegas'.

Despite Roach's advice, St-Pierre has previously committed to defending the middleweight title.

Some of the footage lends new perspective to some of his biggest fights, most significantly a substantial knee injury that he dealt with in the leadup to the Chad Mendes fight, but this is all highly manicured. "I think that lightweight is Conor's ideal weight class, so Tony is the fight that seems right at the moment".

And as the next show in Sin City is UFC 219 in December and still without a headline fight, McGregor could be providing some festive cheer to his millions of fans wordwide.

Georges St-Pierre made a sensational return to the sport of MMA Sunday when he defeated middleweight champion Michael Bisping via a rear naked choke at UFC 217. I think it did kick in a little bit quicker than usual. "I think that the guys who are involved in boxing, the fighters, would enjoy being under this umbrella and fighting for us, and yeah, I do think would could do it better than everybody else does".

As rough as the sport of MMA is, it's always good to have an exit strategy.
