Conor McGregor Defeats the Law by First Round KO

Conor McGregor Defeats the Law by First Round KO

 

In the least shocking news of the day, Conor McGregor won’t serve any jail time for injuring multiple people in a bus attack. In case you don’t remember the kind of damage The Notorious One did, here’s a refresher:

McGregor and his crew were attempting to get at Khabib Nurmagomedov, who got into an altercation with McGregor’s teammate, Artem Lobov, earlier that week. The attack was premeditated as McGregor was not supposed to appear at the event, but jumped on a plane from Ireland to show up following the Khabib-Lobov staredown.

The former UFC double champion pled guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. The felony charge was dismissed.

As punishment for costing his peers thousands of dollars and the UFC millions, he will serve five days of community service, pay for the damage he caused to the bus, and complete a one to three day anger management course.

Then, he’ll make millions by fighting Khabib in a sanctioned fistfight.

Outside the courtroom, McGregor read a prepared statement.

“I just want to say I’m thankful for the D.A. and the judge for allowing me to move forward. I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans, thank you for the support.”

At least he sounds remorseful.


'The Mountain' Challenges Conor McGregor To A Real Fight

'The Mountain' Challenges Conor McGregor To A Real Fight

 

Remember that video that came out a few years back when we saw Conor McGregor squaring off against 'The Mountain' Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson?

In the 2015 clip they only threw a couple of body shots and it seemed like it was all a bit of a joke, but a throwaway comment from McGregor has angered the big man and now the Icelandic World's Strongest Man Champion wants to settle it once and for all.

In the video, McGregor wrestled a bit with the 400-pound bodybuilder Björnsson, before they had a little punch at each other. The video served everyone's purpose as it went viral and was viewed more than 40 million times. Not bad numbers by anyone's definition.

 

For Conor, it was mostly a promotional exercise to hype up for his fight against Jose Aldo, but you know what Conor is like, he started running his mouth at Björnsson after the fact.

He said: "It was a lot of fun. That's a big man - 6-foot-9, 400 pounds. And I still folded him up."

Well, it turns out that huge Icelandic bodybuilders also have quite a long memory and an easily bruised pride.

He didn't like the idea that Conor was saying that he beat him in what he presumably thought was a joke fight. Conor barely comes up to his chest, for Christ's sake.

The Mountain, perhaps understandably, thinks that there wouldn't be that much of a fight between him and 'The Notorious' McGregor.

 

In an interview with Off the Ball, he said: "Bring me some shorts and put us in a cage, I'll fight again. I had him a few times, but I just didn't want to break him. I was like, 'Fuck this, I'm not going to run after this small guy!'

"He's running around, you know? I don't have cardio for running around after small guys."

Obviously, the reality is that the fight will most likely never happen. After all, Conor is probably the better fighter, but 'The Mountain' would presumably only have to get him once to knock him out. His hands are about the about the size of McGregor's head.

 

On the other hand, could Björnsson live with Conor's speed? Big men get tired, and Conor punches well above his weight for a small guy. Maybe somebody should make this fight after all. After chasing Conor about a ring for ages, how much fight would be left in the big man?

Or maybe 'The Mountain' would just crush Conor's head like a peanut.

What do you mean that wasn't real?

 


Conor McGregor Makes Cryptic Statement About His Freakout

Conor McGregor Makes Cryptic Statement About His Freakout

Conor McGregor usually says so much, but there will be no gum flappin’ here. Not now, not when attorneys are getting involved.

Of course, you remember McGregor’s public freakout before UFC 223. You can call it protecting his boy Artem Lobov, but the dude went temporarily insane. He threw a dolly through a UFC bus filled with fighters. That resulted in two fighters sustaining injuries which led to the cancellation of their fights.

Lobov’s fight was also cancelled. To be honest, only now when I think about it, I wonder why his fight was canceled. He got confronted by Khabib Nurmagomedov and ten of his boys. He wasn’t in the group of people who attacked the fighter bus. His involvement in any retaliation seems non-existent.

Anyway, McGregor hasn’t said anything since the incident, but a couple of days ago he Instagrammed a photo of himself looking off camera with the caption:

It is only a lesson if you learn from it. I learn every day.

Everything You Need To Know About Conor McGregor’s Infamous Rise To Stardom

Everything You Need To Know About Conor McGregor’s Infamous Rise To Stardom

 

Even if you don’t have much of an interest in mixed martial arts, you probably have a passing familiarity with Conor McGregor, who is as close to a household name as there is in the Ultimate Fighting Championship today.

McGregor didn’t start out as a superstar. The Dublin native had to work his way up from humble beginnings, eventually becoming a two-division champion and one of the biggest draws in the history of the Las Vegas-based promotion.

Many a meteoric rise is accompanied by a precipitous fall, and these days McGregor appears to be teetering on the brink of disaster. The man with the moniker “Notorious” made headlines for all the wrong reasons prior to UFC 223, as he was arrested and charged on multiple counts after throwing a dolly at a window of a bus that was transporting fighters at the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, N.Y.

McGregor hasn’t competed in the UFC’s Octagon since November 2016, and for now, his future is uncertain. As McGregor awaits his fate, here are five things you might not know about the Irishman.

While he wasn’t much for watching the world’s most popular sport, McGregor spent some time competing on the pitch as a youth. In fact, McGregor harbored soccer dreams as he competed for Yellowstone of the Leinster Senior League. By age 12, however, McGregor began to dabble in the combat arts, as he started boxing at the Crumlin Boxing Club under the guidance of trainer Phil Sutcliffe.

2. His career path could have been very different.

The Irishman walked away from a plumber’s apprenticeship because he had dreams of riches that would far exceed what he could earn in such a trade. After approximately 18 months in that field, McGregor grew tired of days that began at 5 a.m. After sparring with friend – and eventual UFC competitor Tom Egan – McGregor’s interest in MMA began to pique.

 

3. He was a two-division champion before coming to the UFC.

While much is made of McGregor becoming the only fighter in UFC history to hold titles in two divisions simultaneously – and rightfully so – he also captured two championship belts during his tenure in the European organization Cage Warriors Fighting Championship. Following an eight-fight winning streak on the regional scene, McGregor signed with the UFC in 2013.

4. He owns four of the top selling pay-per-view events in UFC history.

While the UFC doesn’t officially release pay-per-view figures, industry estimates indicate that McGregor has consistently been one of the biggest draws in promotion history. It started with his 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo at UFC 194 (1.025 million buys) and continued with his rivalry against Nate Diaz in 2016 at UFC 196 (1.3 million) and UFC 202 (1.65 million). His last Octagon appearance, a lightweight title win over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, drew a reported 1.3 million buys.

5. He was able to parlay UFC stardom into a crossover fight against a pound-for-pound boxing great.

MMA vs. boxing has always been a great debate in the combat sports realm, but rarely do any crossover fights come to fruition. That all changed in 2017, as a social media feud between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather translated into a lucrative boxing match at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas late that summer. McGregor, with zero professional boxing bouts to his credit, made it to the 10th round against Mayweather before losing via technical knockout. He was praised for his performance against a far more experienced foe, and more importantly, he entered a new tax bracket with a rumored payday in the neighborhood of $100 million.  For the UFC, that has made negotiations with the Irishman even more tricky.

 


Conor McGregor Sought By NYPD For Questioning In UFC 223 Bus Attack

Conor McGregor Sought By NYPD For Questioning In UFC 223 Bus Attack

 

The New York Police Department wants to question Conor McGregor after the UFC star attacked a bus carrying fighters today in Brooklyn.

Currently, there is no warrant issued for McGregor’s (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) arrest. But that could change if the NYPD is unable to convince the fighter to come in for an interview.

“Right now, we don’t have units out there searching for him or anything like that,” NYPD spokesperson Lt. Tarik Sheppard told MMAjunkie. “We’re just trying to make contact.”

McGregor was caught on camera throwing a dolly through the window of a bus at Barclays Center, which hosts Saturday’s UFC 223. The incident left UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa injured and also injured a UFC employee, UFC President Dana White told reporters.

 

White indicated McGregor’s intended target was UFC lightweight title challenger Khabib Nurmagomedov, who on Wednesday was involved in an altercation with McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov. White said Lobov was among a gang of 30 people led by McGregor and won’t be allowed to fight at UFC 223.

White called the UFC lightweight champ’s actions “criminal, disgusting,” and “despicable.”

White claimed an arrest warrant has been issued for McGregor, but Sheppard said the incident has not yet escalated to that level. The NYPD will work with the UFC and McGregor’s camp to bring McGregor in for questioning. If McGregor comes in within a reasonable amount of time, there will be no need to issue a warrant.

“If (McGregor won’t come in), there’s an official way to go about it,” Sheppard said. “Once a report is made and charges are filed, now it’s not we’re looking to speak to you – we’re coming to speak to you. A warrant would be issued for your arrest. We’re nowhere near something like that right now.”

 

White predicted McGregor will turn himself to police if he isn’t detained first.

“You can imagine he’s going to be sued beyond belief, and this was a real bad career move for him,” the UFC exec said.

Sheppard said from his understanding of the events that took place, McGregor’s actions represent misdemeanor assault, which carries a maximum jail term of between three months and one year.

“However, I don’t know the full status of what the person is saying in regards to their injuries,” he said. “If their injuries include a disfigurement from the glass where they’re going to be scarred for life, that would be a felony.”

MMA coach Rick Little told MMAjunkie that Chiesa went to the hospital and is “cut up.” MMAFighting.com reported Chiesa will still compete against ex-champ Anthony Pettis at UFC 223, but Little said his fighter wants to fight, but needs more evaluation and “took a good shot.”

With no charges filed, Sheppard said there’s no official time limit for McGregor to come in. But if the fighter is thinking about leaving the country on his private plane, he would be stopped.

“I think if he was at an airport right now, the police would walk up to him and say, ‘Hey, we want to speak to you,’ and he would not be allowed to leave,” Sheppard said.

Conor McGregor Sends ‘Death Threat’ To Floyd Mayweather

Conor McGregor Sends ‘Death Threat’ To Floyd Mayweather

Conor McGregor has seemingly reignited his ‘feud’ with boxer Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather after posting a tweet about a ‘funeral home’.

UFC star McGregor was beaten by Mayweather in their much-hyped boxing match in Las Vegas back in August last year and since, there’ve been plenty of rumours in regards to a rematch, this time though, in an MMA fight.

It’s not actually clear what he meant by his tweet, which reads:

Shin bone to the cheek bone. The rule set kept you out the funeral home.

 

 

https://twitter.com/TheNotoriousMMA/status/947853115910508545

 

In December, it was reported Mayweather was apparently in talks with the UFC about a huge – and very real – fight in the Octagon.

UFC President, Dana White, has described this exciting, yet unprecedented prospect, as being a ‘realistic possibility.’

Talking with ESPN, White revealed:

We’re talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal. It’s real. He was talking about [boxing] Conor McGregor. Was that real?

Have you heard Floyd talk about many things that aren’t real? He usually tips his hand when he’s in the media and then that sh*t ends up happening.

We’re interested in doing something with Floyd. Everything is a realistic possibility. Mayweather vs. McGregor f*cking happened.

Anything is possible!

 

 

https://twitter.com/TeamFA/status/943437826074427392

 

 

At the beginning of December, Mayweather strongly hinted about the possibility of him returning to combat sports through a Fight Hype video, saying:

They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back.

I can come right back. If I wanted to, I can come right back to the UFC. I can go fight in the Octagon. I can do a three – or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars.

Remember, I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.

You have to applaud his confidence!

Many didn’t take the vid too seriously, but now it seems this could be much more than just bragging?

Watch the video here:

McGregor was on social media a matter of hours before his latest tweet, where he revealed he spent his New Year’s Eve ‘shaking in bed’ after ‘one of the most intense few days’ he’s gone through.

The reason the fighter spent the end of the year in bed is because he, along with half his family, have been struck down with the Australian Flu Virus.

So instead of partying hard in true McGregor style, he posted a reflective Instagram post – which he has since deleted – before saying he’s ‘sharper and faster’.

He wrote:

Well that was a wild New Year’s Eve. Half the family hit with the Australian flu virus and some even left in hospital with it. I’ve never even been to Australia wtf.

One of the most intense few days I’ve gone thru. Big New Year’s Eve party cancelled at the last minute and I am left shaking in bed the past two days. I’ll leave that with the rest of the bad behind me in 2017 and take with me the many great experiences I’ve had this year!

None greater than the birth of my son Conor Jr. and the continued support of my family, my friends and my dedicated staff through thick and thin.

Thank you all and Happy new year to everyone!

2018 I may go back to the back pages instead of the front pages again but I have a feeling these journalists now just want me in the obituary pages so we shall see.

I will be ready for whatever comes.  Be sharp and be fast this year because I am sharper and I am faster. God bless you all and Happy New Year!

Conor McGregor Reveals Why He Went At Referee Marc Goddard

Conor McGregor Reveals Why He Went At Referee Marc Goddard

Conor being Conor. We now know why Conor jumped in and went after a ref the other day. It was one of the coolest things I have seen as far as post-fight celebrations go. Another MMA fighter jumping and and celebrating! Awesome.

Now McGregor has explained why he made the bold move and jumped into the Octagon.

In a now-deleted tweet about the incident, McGregor wrote:

Bloke KO’d on the floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fights not over conor. that’s when I lost it. Fuck yous all.

Conor the badass!

This weekend According to TMZ: Conor McGregor went NUCLEAR at an MMA event in Dublin … slapping a regulatory official and pushing veteran UFC referee Marc Goddard for breaking up his post-fight celebration with training partner Charlie Ward.

McGregor was PISSED — pushing Goddard from behind and getting in his face … before the officials and BFF Artem Lobov escorted him from the cage.

But Conor wasn’t done. He came back, climbed back on top of the cage and straight slapped one of the officials upside the head.

Here is one video from the fight:

Conor has come back with a “better” statement about the situation.

 

“I sincerely apologize for my behavior at last weekends fight event in Dublin. While trying to support a loyal teammate and friend, I let my emotions get the best of me and acted out of line. As a multiple weight UFC champion, executive producer, role model and public figure, I must hold myself to a higher standard. The referee Marc Gonard was making a horrendous decision in trying to pick an unconscious fighter up off the floor and force the fight to continue into the second round. Even against the wishes of the said fighters coach. The fight was over. After witnessing my fighter in a fight where the worst happened and the opponent passed away from his injuries on the night, I thought the worst was about to happen again, and I lost it and over reacted. I am sorry to everyone. I sincerely apologize to the Director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, Mike Mazzulli, all the officials and staff working the event, Andy Ryan and his fighter John, two stonch ones that put up a great fight every time. That side will always have my respect, and lastly every one of my fans. I love yous all! I’ve always learned from my mistakes and this will be no different.”

According to Unilad:

Although it’s not known what was said in their face off, it seems McGregor wasn’t too pleased with Goddard’s reaction to his presence in the Octagon and wanted to give him a piece of his mind.

It could also be possible he wanted to get at him for chucking him out of the arena during the Andre Fili-Artem Lobov bout at UFC Gdansk.

Speaking to MMA Fighting Goddard says he kicked McGregor out because he was acting as a fourth cornerman for teammate Lobov, which he deemed unfair.

He went on to explain:

That’s not allowed. Imagine he had Conor talk him through a fight-ending sequence. Then what?

Conor was basically acting like a fourth cornerman.

Walking around the cageside wherever and whenever he wanted. When Fili took down Artem, Conor was right there.

That’s simply not fair and not allowed. I won’t have it. He can’t do as he pleases.

Conor McGregor Slaps MMA Official After Crashing Bellator Fight

Conor McGregor Slaps MMA Official After Crashing Bellator Fight

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT! Conor is ready. He was watching his buddy fight and wanted to get a little dirty himself!

According to TMZ: Conor McGregor just went NUCLEAR at an MMA event in Dublin … slapping a regulatory official and pushing veteran UFC referee Marc Goddard for breaking up his post-fight celebration with training partner Charlie Ward.

It all went down after Ward won by 1st-round KO at Bellator 187 — which prompted McGregor to jump into the cage to show his SBG Ireland teammate some love.

One problem — Conor wasn’t allowed in the cage since he wasn’t a licensed cornerman for Charlie … so Goddard and several fight officials stepped in to interrupt their bro moment.

 

McGregor was PISSED — pushing Goddard from behind and getting in his face … before the officials and BFF Artem Lobov escorted him from the cage.

But Conor wasn’t done. He came back, climbed back on top of the cage and straight slapped one of the officials upside the head.

Here is one video from the fight:

Conor McGregor’s Homophobic Rant Caught On Camera

Conor McGregor’s Homophobic Rant Caught On Camera

Conor McGregor was caught on camera using a homophobic slur following Artem ‘The Russian Hammer’ Lobov’s fight at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 118.

McGregor had flown in to watch his friend, Lobov, fight in Gdansk, Poland against Andre ‘Touchy’ Fili and managed, of course, to cause a stir even before the bout ended.

With less than a minute left in the second round, referee Marc Goddard paused the fight to speak to McGregor, who had spent the previous nine minutes screaming words of encouragement to Lobov from the crowd.

What’s got into you, man? C’mon. Sit down, please. Be a professional.

Even with McGregor’s encouragement, Lobov was unable to get the best of Fili, who took the unanimous decision.

Fili earned three 30-27 scores on the judges’ cards.

https://twitter.com/arielhelwani/status/921791436730896384

https://twitter.com/SecretMovesMMA/status/921794410656002048

After the fight, McGregor walked Lobov to the dressing room area of the Ergo Arena and it was as the pair walked backstage, McGregor was caught on camera using the homophobic slur.

He is heard calling Fili a f*ggot.

Totally, totally uncalled for.

 

McGregor has been away from the sport for a while, after making his boxing debut in a hotly-anticipated fight against Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather back in August.

During the press tour for their huge fight, Mayweather apologised for using the same, homophobic remark against McGregor while in London, promoting their Las Vegas fight.

Mayweather said:

Like I said before, it’s certain boundaries we just don’t cross.

It’s OK if he wants to say certain things. Even in the press tour when I said something, I didn’t want to be negative towards lesbians or gays when I said something to him. So, I apologise.

While he's been away for some time now, McGregor seems to have confirmed his intention to fight UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson in a one word tweet, taunting ‘El Cucuy’.

The post, which he also shared on Instagram, contains only one word, ‘Tony’ and included a picture of Conor as a Grand Theft Auto-style character driving a speedboat while holding a gun.

Since his knock out loss to Floyd Mayweather back in August at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, speculation has been rife about McGregor fighting Ferguson and this tweet seems to confirm it.

 

https://twitter.com/TheNotoriousMMA/status/918871919293882369

A tweet from McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, added further fuel to the fire when he tweeted ‘Here we go…’ along with a link to Conor’s original tweet.

President of the UFC, Dana White, has also indicated a Ferguson/McGregor match up makes the most ‘sense’, following Ferguson’s victory over Kevin Lee at UFC 216, which saw him win the Interim Lightweight Championship.

Ferguson’s been vocal about taking on the champion, as well as telling MMAjunkie Radio this week how Conor needs to defend his title.

https://twitter.com/John_Kavanagh/status/918872736310681600

He said:

What (McGregor) needs to do is defend or vacate. That dude’s got like less than a month.

I mean compared to what UFC rules state, he’s got a year to start defending his belt. I’m more then ready for December.

He said he wants to fight in 2017. I think the fans deserve it. I think I deserve it.

Should the fight happen it’ll most likely take place at UFC 219 on December 30, 2017.


Conor McGregor Is 'Being Sued For Hitting Security Guard With A Can Of Energy Drink'

Conor McGregor Is 'Being Sued For Hitting Security Guard With A Can Of Energy Drink'

Conor McGregor is reportedly being sued by a security guard after he allegedly lobbed a can of Monster energy drink at him.

The bizarre incident happened a pre-fight press conference before he faced Nate Diaz in August last year.

I'm sure you'll remember the presser, it was the one in which McGregor shouted: "You'll do nuttin'. You'll do fucking nuttin'."

The conference then descended into chaos with the pair chucking bottles of water at each before McGregor was dragged away to calm down.

In a clip recorded during the barney, Dana White can be heard warning McGregor not to throw anything, but that's completely ignored as he lashes some plastic water bottles before lobbing a can of Monster over, too.

Now, according to The Blast, a security guard called William Pegg is suing the MMA star after saying he was hit by the can and had to undergo medical treatment as a result.

Pegg claims he was hit in the back of his head, near to his shoulder and that he incurred medical expenses of just under $5,000 (£3,800). He is also seeking damages and will be asking for $95,000 (£71,900) in total from the Irishman.

If you're now thinking 'seems a bit steep, where's he pulled that figure from?' then let me tell you.

via GIPHY

According to The Blast, Pegg says that as McGregor made $15m (£11.3m) from his fight with Diaz, during which he was 'significantly' struck by Diaz 166 times, he should be entitled to $15m divided by 166 - or $90,000 (£68,000), with the extra $5,000 (£3,800) being for his medical expenses.

McGregor's lawyers are reported to have filed a response denying any responsibility.

Either way, after the money he pocketed from last month's fight against Mayweather, I'm sure McGregor isn't losing too much sleep over the whole thing.

I certainly wouldn’t post this online if I didn’t have a ticket, it might land him in some trouble. But I wouldn’t even have the balls to sneak in the first place, so props for that. A lot of these have been proven to just be marketing stunts. I’m not saying this one is, just something to keep in mind.

 


Mayweather Tried To Bet $400K On Himself

Mayweather Tried To Bet $400K On Himself

 Floyd Mayweather Jr. bet his reputation and his unblemished record on Saturday's bout with Conor McGregor—and he tried to bet plenty of cash as well. Sources say he tried to bet $400,000 on himself ahead of the fight, but ended up leaving the sportsbook at the M Resort in Las Vegas in frustration. Mayweather tried to place bets on himself to win in under 9.5 rounds and to win by a knockout, the sources say. Nevada does not prohibit boxers betting on themselves, but insiders say there were worries about whether it was legal to place a bet on something more complicated than a straight win.

Mayweather gave up because placing the bets was taking too long. He would have won both, adding to an estimated $200 million haul. "I gave my guy six figures to go bet," Mayweather told ESPN after the fight. "I have to make sure he bet because earlier today I went to the sportsbook to bet and they wouldn't let me bet." He later said he gave the friend $400,000, but he was only allowed to bet $87,000. The defeated McGregor, meanwhile, is expected to make at least $90 million from the bout, including merchandise sales and sponsorship, USA Today reports. The Irishman brought a bottle of "Notorious Irish Whiskey" to a post-fight press conference and said he plans to launch his own line of liquor soon.


Conor McGregor Landed More Punches On Mayweather Than Pacquiao

Conor McGregor Landed More Punches On Mayweather Than Pacquiao

 

Floyd Mayweather's defeat over Conor McGregor wasn't a particular shock outcome, with most pundits, experts, fans and bookies predicting a win for Mayweather.

However, McGregor did manage to surprise a lot of experts and fans, who were claiming the MMA star wouldn't even land a single punch on Mayweather.

In fact, he pissed all over that theory - despite being stopped after 10 rounds, McGregor still managed to land 111 punches on Mayweather.

https://twitter.com/MMAFighting/status/901674953988161536

This means that only Canelo, with 117, has been able to land more punches on the boxing champ. Impressive.

So, not only did he manage to land 30 more punches than Manny Pacquiao but he also did it in two fewer rounds. In fact, according to stats from Boxing Scene, McGregor was able to land more power punches than Pacquiao was even able to land total punches.

Not bad for a fella up against an undefeated world champion in his first ever professional boxing match.

Speaking about his competitor after the fight. Mayweather said: "He is a tough competitor and I thought we gave the fans what they wanted to see.

"He is a lot better than I thought he was, he used different angles and was a tough competitor but I was the better man tonight.

"Our game-plan was to take our time, let him shoot all his heavy shots early on and then take him down at the end, down the stretch.

"We know in the MMA he fights 25 minutes real hard and after that he starts to slow down. I guaranteed this fight wouldn't go the distance. A win is a win."

Credit: PA

Meanwhile, McGregor expressed his frustration at the fight being stopped: "I had a bit of fun over on this side. Hopefully I entertained the fans on this. I thought it was close, though.

"And I thought it was a little early of a stoppage. I get like that when I'm tired. I get a little wobbly and flowy. But get me into the corner and I'd have recovered and come back.

Credit: PA

"I'd have liked to hit the floor. There's a lot on the line here, [the ref] should have let me keep going, I thought.

"No one's taking these kinds of risks. So, fuck it, lay into me all you want. I'll take it on the chin. I'll take it wrapped around the neck on live TV. It's another day for me."

DID EVERYONE CATCH THAT 'COCKY' IRISHMAN MACGREGOR'S 'BONER' AT WEIGH IN ON FRIDAY?

DID EVERYONE CATCH THAT 'COCKY' IRISHMAN MACGREGOR'S 'BONER' AT WEIGH IN ON FRIDAY?

 

It’s the morning after the weigh-in before and no one can stop talking about Conor McGregor’s bulging muscle(s).

The final stand-off between all 153lbs of The Notorious and 149.5lbs of Money Mayweather went down a bit below the belt when the Irish UFC champ stripped off for the baying audience.

Among the hollering crowds was Floyd himself, who reacted to the presentation of manhood accordingly:

BEST VIEW OF THE BONER AT THE 2:58 MARK

As you can see, Floyd seemed less than threatened by his long term athletic rival, choosing instead to openly mock Conor’s rig.

He’s not the only one:

The long term rivals have been locked in this (ever so slightly homoerotic) stand off, standing to attention on the world’s stage, for months now.

You can watch some of their best bits below:

If anyone was in any doubt that the fight of the century was in some way symptomatic of a cock-measuring contest, your innocence can now be pronounced dead.

Now, let's see how the pair measure up in the ring, shall we?

Oh, hey, it was Mayweather.

The Belt Being Given To The Winner Of McGregor vs. Mayweather Is Absolutely Insane

The Belt Being Given To The Winner Of McGregor vs. Mayweather Is Absolutely Insane

Regardless of how Saturday night’s fight turns out, both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are projected to walk away with a nice chunk of change. The Irishman will reportedly take home upwards of $80 million for stepping into the ring, while Mayweather will earn close to $250 million depending on PPV sales.

As if that wasn’t enough, the World Boxing Council just revealed a custom “Money Belt” that will be awarded to the winner of the fight, and it’s absolutely insane.

According to TMZ, the belt is made of crocodile leather and contains 3,360 diamonds, 600 sapphires, and 160 emeralds in addition to around 3.3 pounds of 24k gold.

It’s not clear how much it’s worth, but considering the belt designed for Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was valued at $1 million, it’s hard to imagine this one is would go for any less.

Conor McGregor's Insane Bet For His Fight With Floyd Mayweather

Conor McGregor's Insane Bet For His Fight With Floyd Mayweather

Conor McGregor oozes confidence, that's no secret. But even now, in preparation for going up against the best boxer of our generation in Floyd Mayweather, a man who is 49-0, that has not changed the UFC star's self-assurance.

McGregor was doing his usual trash-talking in the press tour leading up to the fight and despite him being the firm outside bet, The Irishman reckons its his destiny to knock Mayweather off his perch and prevent him from reaching 50-0.

The 'Notorious' has taken on the 'Mystic Mac' tag after his predictions going into several of his big fights have been eerily accurate, and ahead of the biggest challenge of his career against 'Money', he said: "I will knock this man outside inside four rounds."

The Dubliner is so optimistic that he will provide the biggest upset in boxing history on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas that he is reportedly talking about placing a one million Euro bet on himself to win the fight, and is encouraging his family and friends to do the same as it's 'easy money'.

Image: PA

"Conor is as confident as ever ahead of his fight and he's prepared to put his money where his mouth is," a source a close to McGregor told the Irish Sun. "The message to his friends and family has been simple from Conor, he's telling them to get rich off his back.

"He has told a lot of people to back him if they want to earn some easy money.

"They will have been reassured by the fact that he says he's putting €1 million on himself to win, that's how confident he is.

"We know how accurate Conor's predictions have been in the past and that's why people close to him will find his tip hard to ignore."

The €1 million sum is, of course, peanuts to McGregor given that he's about to rake in an absolute fortune from gate receipts and box office buys from the mega-bout, but it appears he is genuinely fixed on the idea that he is going to emerge victorious despite the huge uphill challenge.

Will McGregor do the business or will Mayweather make 'easy work' of his 50th professional opponent?


8 Reasons Why McGregor Will Get Destroyed (And 7 Why He’ll Beat Mayweather)

8 Reasons Why McGregor Will Get Destroyed (And 7 Why He’ll Beat Mayweather)

With the four-city promotional media tour coming to a close, we can now digest the heavy dose of WWE-style ridiculousness along with the touches of racism, homophobia, and misogyny sprinkled in which we all got the pleasure of witnessing from these two champions of their respective sports. After all, what did you expect from these two in the first place?

For those of you who were scoring from home, we gave Los Angeles to the unprepared Conor, 10-9. After getting used to the boxing style press conferences, Conor went on to take Toronto in a landslide, 10-8. After narrowly avoiding the TKO, Mayweather came back strong and took New York 10-9. And finally, we scored London a draw, giving McGregor the advantage on the scorecards 39-37.

There were some extremely entertaining moments during this mega-fight media tour, as we expected, but there were also some extremely cringe-worthy moments as well — also as expected. Now we can focus on the actual fight, which is the reason we’re here in the first place.

Conor was in his element on stage with a microphone in hand dishing out insults, which is what he does best and a main reason why he’s gotten himself in this position, staring at a massive payday, but the boxing ring will be a whole different scenario since he has no career professional boxing matches to his credit and he’s going straight into the deep end to face the undisputed champ.

Many feel that the press conferences will be more entertaining than the actual fight, which very well could be the case. But with the attention now focused on the actual fight, we can now assess all the details that could sway the outcome of this epic battle that’s about to take place.

We’ve already done an article on this very topic, but we still need to address a few details that were left out previously. There’s so much to consider for this monumental battle between one of the best boxers ever and the UFC champion, so let’s have a closer look at some details that could factor in on the outcome of the fight.

15. Mayweather: Experience

Obviously, there’s no doubt that Mayweather has a huge advantage when it comes to experience. With a professional record of 49-0, not to mention all of the amateur fights, including the Olympics, Mayweather is clearly in his element. This will be an incredibly important factor going into to this fight and, of course, during the bout itself.

While Conor makes all the adjustments for his switch to boxing, which is an entirely different animal than MMA, it’s business as usual for one of the pound-for-pound greatest boxers of all time. We’ll find out soon enough how Conor adapts to his new surroundings, but for Floyd, it’s business as usual. This is clearly a crucial factor heading into the fight. Advantage: Mayweather.

14. McGregor: In Floyd’s Head

All professional fighters are used to a certain amount of inevitable trash-talk that occurs during press conferences and even during fights — but nothing on Conor McGregor’s level. Never has Mayweather been called-out and so publicly humiliated as he was during this recent tour. At times, he laughed it off and took videos while Conor was attempting to destroy his ego, while other times, he just sat there as the UFC champ let the insults fly.

It’s hard to gauge whether this had any psychological effect on Mayweather, but you know that inside, he must be fuming. Whether this makes him lose his cool and allows this to throw him off of his game remains to be seen. One thing is for sure: he’s never been through something like that before, and judging by the way Jose Aldo took it, it could be a long or a short night for the ’12-year-old break dancer b*tch.’ Advantage: McGregor.

13. Mayweather: Speed

One thing’s for sure: Speed kills. Whether it’s a team sport or individual sports, speed is always a decisive factor. In the NFL, speed is everything. Sometimes, even less than a second determines if you make the league or not. Boxing is no different in that regard. And when it comes to speed, Floyd definitely has the advantage.

Floyd gets the nod in foot speed, hand speed, and overall quickness. Floyd even has better reaction time, which makes him so elusive. This is also the reason why people have such a hard time making contact with him, or why he’s such a good counter-puncher. Speed is in Mayweather’s favor, and he’ll have to use it throughout this fight as he’s always done if he wants to come out on top.

12. McGregor: KO Power

While Mayweather has the clear speed advantage over McGregor, the same cannot be said when it comes to natural power. In fact, if you look at Conor’s record, 16 of his 18 KO or TKO wins came from his hands inside the octagon, which is quite impressive, considering the many ways to finish an opponent in the UFC. Conor loves using his punches and striking ability. He also has a size and reach advantage.

Meanwhile, Mayweather hasn’t knocked an opponent out since his controversial win over Victor Ortiz in 2011, which was seven fights ago. So, he’s not exactly making opponents worry about his power. If Mayweather wins, look for a decision from the judges, which is usually the case anyways. Some of this has to do with his often-injured hands, which we’ll discuss later in the article. McGregor definitely has a puncher’s chance. One clean shot could make the difference.

11. Mayweather: Running Man

We talked about Mayweather’s elusiveness due to his speed advantage. Yes, Floyd has super quick hands, something McGregor is not used to, but he also has those lightning-fast feet, which he uses more often than most people would like.

Floyd gets a lot of flack from sports fans and pundits alike for running more than actually fighting. But this is Mayweather’s style, and it’s helped him remain undefeated after all these years. Say what you want, but it works. Floyd likes to stick and move, and he likes to move a lot. It’s going to be very difficult for McGregor to catch him and keep him along the ropes and stay in striking distance. It’ll be interesting to see how Conor adjusts to this style. Good luck with that!

10. McGregor: Southpaw

McGregor is a southpaw. And as we previously mentioned, he also has tons of knockout power with that short left hook. This should be on Mayweather’s mind for the entire bout when they finally meet in the ring. Floyd will be doing everything possible to avoid that left hand. “One shot is all it takes,” McGregor likes to remind us, so that ‘puncher’s chance’ is very much relevant.

Let’s not forget (which is easy to do since Floyd has never lost in his professional boxing career), Floyd has more difficulty with left-handed fighters. Oscar De La Hoya once said, “The left hand is the Kryptonite for Mayweather.” Another thing to consider is all of the hand injuries Mayweather has sustained during his career, which is probably the reason for his lack of knockout power. In his last fight against Andre Berto, Floyd hurt his left hand in the ninth round and didn’t do much for the final three rounds. In 2006, against Carlos Baldomir, Floyd hurt his right hand so badly that after the fight, he said, “I’ve never felt pain like that before.”

9. Mayweather: Fighting A First-Timer

It’s still hard to believe that a UFC fighter with no professional boxing experience whatsoever is getting a shot at arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer of all-time, but that’s the situation we’ve found ourselves in. We talked about all of Mayweather’s boxing experience, but the lack of experience for McGregor is certainly alarming and doesn’t bode well for the MMA star’s chances.

Consider the fact that McGregor just started training as a boxer only a couple of months ago. Not only does he have no ring experience, but he has no training experience. It’s truly mind-boggling. McGregor might have trained in his youth as an amateur boxer, but that was a long time ago, and he’s now facing one of the best… ever. It’s hard to be optimistic about his chances.

8. McGregor: Age Advantage

Another important issue to consider is the age difference between the two fighters. Conor has far less wear and tear and has 12 years on his side coming into the fight. That’s a considerable difference, especially in the world of combat and contact sports. Mayweather is also 40 years old now — well past his prime. And although he still looks quick and sharp, he’s coming off of a two-year hiatus after retiring from the sport.

We’ll soon see if Mayweather shows any signs of ring rust, which is very common after such a long layoff, especially for more senior athletes. We’ve seen several former champions extend their careers well into their forties with great success. Can Floyd add his name to that group? It certainly should be a factor against a younger, bigger, stronger fighter with a two-inch reach advantage.

7. Mayweather: Stamina

So, Floyd is 40 years old and coming back after a two-year layoff. Aside from ring rust, there could be a stamina issue as well. However, when it comes to Floyd and his past fights, endurance has never been an issue. This is a guy very much used to going the distance, which, in the boxing world, means 12 rounds. Those are a lot of rounds for an MMA guy and someone who’s not used to going more than 5 rounds.

Will Conor be able to adjust to the new format? Sure, UFC rounds last five minutes compared to boxing’s three minutes, but there are twelve of them, and Conor rarely goes the distance in his fights. Would he even be able to last 36 minutes in a boxing match? We doubt it, and so does he, apparently, realizing that he’ll probably need to get the knockout early in the bout. Conor had all sorts of trouble with stamina in his most recent five-round bout with Nate Diaz — not looking good for the Irishman in that regard.

6. McGregor: Irish Fans

When it comes to fans, Conor seems to have a clear advantage. Those Irish fans follow him wherever he goes, and they’re ridiculously loud. Having that kind of support can definitely help Conor by providing him with the extra boost of adrenaline to get the job done. People cannot underestimate what crowd support can do for an athlete. There’s a reason why they call it ‘home-field advantage’ in sports and why it’s so important.

Having said that, as Money Mayweather so eloquently stated, “The fans can’t fight for you.” Whatever McGregor does will have to be on his own. After all, he’ll be the only one in the ring against Floyd. But with thousands of alcohol-induced fans waving Irish flags and showing support for their idol, it should certainly provide McGregor with that extra bit of an advantage to get the job done. C’mon, scrapper!

5. Mayweather: Defensive Genius

Okay, so not only does Floyd have the experience and speed factor, but he also happens to be probably the greatest defensive boxer of all time. It’s unbelievably difficult to connect with Floyd. In fact, we don’t ever remember a time when he’s been cut or hurt. Do you ever remember seeing any blood on Floyd’s face? He always looks untouched at the end of his bouts.

Even when Floyd gets backed into the corner or along the ropes, he rarely seems to take any damage. He uses his shoulders and guard to perfection, and then, he either uses his lethal counter-strikes, body faints, and quick feet to circle out of danger. The question will be whether or not Conor can get him into that position and inflict any harm. Nobody else has in the past, so Conor has his work cut out for him.

4. McGregor: Hope For Overconfidence

Hopefully, for McGregor’s sake, Floyd comes into this fight a little too overconfident. Perhaps, Mayweather feels that McGregor has no chance at winning and severely underestimates him. It’s doubtful considering that this hasn’t happened in the past, but this is a unique situation against a guy with no recent boxing experience.

Floyd is a very intelligent boxer, but he isn’t the brightest tool in the shed outside of the ring. So, if he underestimates Conor’s ability and chances and if he comes in too revved up and angry from all the insults he’s had to endure from the press conferences, perhaps, his mental approach won’t be the same as it was before. He may get careless trying to prove a point or be too irritated from all of the mind games. Stranger things have happened. Again, remember Jose Aldo.

3. Mayweather: Gloves

Another issue Conor will have to adapt to are the ten-ounce gloves he’ll be wearing when he steps in the ring to face Floyd Mayweather. Unlike the four-ounce gloves he’s used to wearing for his MMA fights, these boxing gloves have far more cushion, reducing the effects of the blows. These boxing gloves are far heavier, too, so it’ll be something different than he’s used to.

The gloves should significantly reduce the Irishman’s punching power, but then again, we’ve seen plenty of knockouts in boxing, so if he lands a clean shot, he could still very well get the intended effect. This is still an advantage for Floyd as he’s used to fighting with the ten-ounce gloves.

2. McGregor: Fixed For A Rematch

With all of this big money floating around for this epic battle, you just never know what to expect, especially considering that this is boxing. The boxing world is no stranger to corruption and fight fixing — then again, we see corruption in just about every sport in the world. But with so much money on the line, there’s always the increased chance of a fix and a rematch.

This would suit McGregor just fine as he hopes to add to his self-worth and wardrobe. Both of these guys love money more than just about anyone you can think of does (as do the promoters), so the idea of a fixed fight is not all that absurd. In fact, it’s highly likely. So, don’t be surprised if we’re in for a rematch. After all, someone owes a lot of money to the IRS.

1. Mayweather: Distance

One big disadvantage for Conor is the fact that he won’t be able to use his front-kick to maintain his distance. In fact, he won’t be able to use any of his kicks or other weapons he uses in the UFC to dictate fights and distance himself from his opponents. He does have that two-inch reach advantage, so he’ll have to be content with using his jab. That’s all he can do in that regard.

At the end of the day, we’re rooting for McGregor, but we think Floyd has too much of an advantage and will win the fight rather easily. It’s tough to see Conor lasting 12 rounds or landing that crucial shot to end the fight. If this were an MMA fight, it would be totally different, and we’d have Conor winning with ease. We doubt Floyd could handle the kicks, knees, and ground game, but this is a boxing match, and Conor is in Floyd’s world now.

Strange UFC Knock Out Ends With Fighter’s Head Thudding Against The Mat

Strange UFC Knock Out Ends With Fighter’s Head Thudding Against The Mat

 

Nothing gets a Monday going in the right direction quite like a good ol’ fashioned UFC knockout, whether legal or illegal.  Today’s match ender occurred at UFC Glasgow this weekend and featured the flashy Galore Bofando (5-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Conor McGregor teammate Charlie Ward (3-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC).

Bofando, whose only two career losses came via disqualification due to illegal strikes, finished Charlie by whipping him into the mat head first, knocking his opponent out for a split second and ultimately ending the match. The thudding sound of Ward’s head hitting the mat is a sound that you don’t hear too often in the octagon.


Boxer Jessie Vargas Claims Conor McGregor Was Knocked Out Cold By Brandon Rios During Sparring Session

Boxer Jessie Vargas Claims Conor McGregor Was Knocked Out Cold By Brandon Rios During Sparring Session

 

Former WBO welterweight champion and Olympic boxer Jessie Vargas is hearing things about Conor McGregor’s training sessions and it’s not looking good for the UFC champion.

In an interview with Villainfy Media, Vargas claims McGregor got knocked out during a sparring session in preparation for his Aug. 26 bout with Mayweather.

He got knocked out cold. We hearing stories.

The boxing world is small, it’s a small circle, you hear these things.

Vargas went on to say that he feels that McGregor has a one percent chance of beating Mayweather in a boxing ring.

I just got tired of it, but I’m looking forward to seeing Floyd get the victory by knockout. Conor is going to get knocked out. Floyd always lives up to the hype, I have no doubt about that, Floyd will get the victory. I actually wanna put some money on it, you know, Conor has like 1% chance of winning.

If what Vargas is hearing is true then maybe the athletic commission should look into whether McGregor is capable enough of defending himself in the boxing ring against an experienced fighter like Mayweather.

UFC President Dana White has revealed Conor McGregor is keen to defend his lightweight title against Khabib Nurmagomedov in Russia after his boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr. I’m a fan of Khabib, but based on how he got lit up on the feet by Johnson while trying to close the distance, I think McGregor would starch him. McGregor wouldn’t just stun him with a few jabs. He’d lay him out. But that’s just my opinion. I would LOVE to see this fight.

Floyd Mayweather’s Trainer Is Worried Conor McGregor Will Get Frustrated And ‘Do Something Crazy’ During Fight

Floyd Mayweather’s Trainer Is Worried Conor McGregor Will Get Frustrated And ‘Do Something Crazy’ During Fight

 

 

Earlier this week UFC commentator Joe Rogan noted that Conor McGrgor could become a “folk hero” if he broke the rules of his upcoming boxing match and kicked Floyd Mayweather in the head. Apparently members of Mayweather’s team are also aware of the possibility of McGregor going rogue during the fight.

Mayweather’s assistant trainer, Nate Jones spoke with, Submission Radio and voiced his concerns about McGregor’s behavior.

One way I can see the fight ending is Floyd outboxing him, beating the crap out of him. Another way I’m gonna be concerned about is when Floyd gets to a point where he frustrates him too much, McGregor’s gonna do something crazy,” That’s the only thing I’m worried about.”

“We’ve seen Sugar Shane Mosely, we seen (DeMarcus) Chop Chop Corley, we seen Zab Judah hit him with a good shot and Floyd kept going. You know, this guy might be — I think his punching power, I think he punches a little bit harder than those guys. That’s my opinion. I would be more concerned about this fight because Floyd’s a little older now. He’s 40 years old, McGregor has crazy weird power and he’s got weird shots from weird angles. I’m worried about that.

“But for my prediction in the fight, is Floyd either confusing him and frustrating him and stopping him in the later rounds or Floyd outboxing him or he doing something stupid and losing the fight. That’s my prediction.”

According to UFC President Dana White, Mayweather made sure to put in safeguards into the fight contract and McGregor would lose a lot of money if he choose to break the rules.


Satirical Computer ‘Simulation’ Of Mayweather Vs. McGregor Predicts A Hilarious Joke Of A Fight

Satirical Computer ‘Simulation’ Of Mayweather Vs. McGregor Predicts A Hilarious Joke Of A Fight

Last week Conor McGregor’s former sparring partner, Chris Van Heerden, said that he believes Floyd Mayweather will dominate “The Notorious One” when they finally fight in August. He even has video that pretty much backs up his statement.

Despite huge betting money already rolling in favoring McGregor in the fight, Van Heerden is far from alone in that assessment.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BVVcvO8gIhc/

In order for McGregor to somehow win most people think he will have to charge Mayweather like a bull and hope to land a very lucky punch. He certainly has the power to knock Mayweather out, but Floyd’s defense is like nothing McGregor has never seen before. He didn’t get to be 49-0 in his career by sheer luck, after all. Mayweather, as he has shown numerous times, is more than willing to dance around and evade his opponents punches, landing just enough to score yet another W.

So with all of that in mind, some mad wizard on the internet put together a “high-tech super computer simulation of the Mayweather-McGregor fight.” In case you can’t feel the sarcasm dripping in that description allow me to make it completely obvious before you watch the video.

https://twitter.com/Ali_B_/status/876370799682215937

Other than the length of the fight, if it were to actually go down something like that it might actually be worth all the money it will cost to watch it. Maybe.

Conor McGregor And Floyd Mayweather 'Agree To Billion Dollar Fight'

Conor McGregor And Floyd Mayweather 'Agree To Billion Dollar Fight'

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have made a deal and will fight, reports the Sun.

The agreement is yet to be formally signed as a result of a 'third party hold up', but it is going to happen.

A source close to McGregor told the Irish Sun: "Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have agreed a deal to fight and have both settled on their respective fees.

"The contract hasn't officially been signed yet because of a third party hold-up but all the details have all been agreed on.

"The fight could even be announced within two weeks."

UFC animated GIF

McGregor was supposed to attend a €100-a-head party on Friday night, but withdrew from it today following an 'unavoidable schedule change'.

A spokesman for the hotel said in a statement: "The Red Cow Moran Hotel in association with Industry Entertainment regret to announce that the evening event with Conor McGregor scheduled for Friday 17th February has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond their control.

"An unavoidable schedule change will see Conor McGregor in Las Vegas at the time of the event."

OH SHIT, IT'S ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

It's been a whole load of 'will they, won't they' for months now, with McGregor's agent, Audie Attar, confirming that his team were 'very interested' in setting up a match with Mayweather a few months back.

Then recently, at an interview event in Manchester, McGregor said: "There's a lot of business to do out in Las Vegas. They tried to fine me $150,000 for throwing a bottle of water. It was a can but whatever. We'll call it a bottle of water and say no more about it...

"Ah no look I'm gonna fuck this whole sh*t up again. I love the Vegas commission. We've come to an understanding. I'm gonna fly out there and fix it. I'm gonna get my Las Vegas boxing commission and then we'll see where the fuck Floyd's at?!"

McGregor's coach, John Kavanagh, previously confirmed that the pair were talks for a potential fight in 2017.

He added that Mayweather's current winning record of 49-0 seems to be especially tantalizing. He said: "He's 49-0. I'm sure he wants that 50th fight. It's a nice number.

"Right now, ask the average guy on the street, who do you want to see Mayweather fight, what fight's going to get the most interest, and it would be a superfight with Conor."

We can't wait.

Thank You Internet! Someone Recreated That Crazy Kangaroo Fight But Added Conor McGregor KO’ing The Beast

Thank You Internet! Someone Recreated That Crazy Kangaroo Fight But Added Conor McGregor KO’ing The Beast

conor_mcgregor_fights_kangaroo1

That video of an Australian man saving his dog and punching a kangaroo has gone super viral, racking up nearly 30 million views in only five days. With great internet popularity comes great mashups.

PETA has condemned the altercation between the man and the roo, even going as so far as to say that Tonkins should be arrested for his punch. Then animal activists showed up at Tonkins’ home and he was forced to call the police because he felt they were a threat to his family.

Well, the people of PETA ain’t gonna like this.

Social media editor RayRod747 edited the now iconic fight between man and beast and gave some backup to Greig Tonkins, in the way of UFC champ Conor McGregor.

In the video, the Australian man had a weak jab that left the marsupial stunned, but it didn’t appear to do any real damage. Even his friends said it was a weak punch.

“We laughed at him for chucking such a shit punch,” Mathew Amor said.

Someone who knows nothing about shit punches is Conor McGregor. What better person for Tonkins to tag in to take care of the animal that attacked his dog than the “The Celtic Tiger” himself.

McGregor isn’t afraid of any human and apparently isn’t afraid of kangaroos either based on this beautiful edit. The Notorious jumps into the inter-species brawl and makes short work of the kangaroo by KO’ing the marsupial.

 

THANK YOU INTERNET!!!

Below is the original viral video in all it’s glory.

Conor McGregor has been handed a hefty fine plus community service for his part in the pre-UFC 202 brawl with Nate Diaz.

The Notorious will have to cough up $150,000 -roughly £121,000- plus serve 50 hours of community service.

As reported by MMA Fighting, the Nevada Athletic Commission took the decision having reviewed the Irishman’s part in the can-throwing incident.

The fine makes up five per cent of the $3 Million dollar purse the Irishman banked from his rematch with Diaz, and alongside his community service McGregor will also be required to take part in an anti-bullying campaign.

McGregor reflected on the incident with remorse. He said:

I just want to apologize for the incident. It was a very unusual incident as I saw it unfolding even.

I just acted wrong, and all I can say is I’m sorry and I will learn from this. … This fight had everything on the line for me. This was the highest stakes fight I’d ever been in. I was in a different mindset. So all I can do is learn from it and learn to handle myself better if I find myself in a situation like that.

I just want to own up and apologize for my part and say that it will not happen in the future. That’s really all I can say.

It had been feared a potential suspension could have prevented McGregor from taking on Eddie Alavarez at Madison Square Garden on November 12, but such a punishment was reportedly never tabled and the UFC 205 headline bout will continue as planned.

The Irishman may still be able to count himself fortunate, however, as commissioners Pat Lundvall and Michon Martin has hoped to see his fine doubled to $300,000.

A hearing for Nate Diaz has been postponed and will take place at a date to be confirmed.

Conor McGregor Taunts Floyd Mayweather And Other Haters In Aggressive Instagram Post

Conor McGregor Taunts Floyd Mayweather And Other Haters In Aggressive Instagram Post

It has been an interesting couple of months for UFC superstar Conor McGregor, who has gone from “retiring” from the sport because he wasn’t getting paid enough to fight in UFC 200 to an alleged boxing match with “retired” undefeated fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr.

McGregor, who, like Mayweather, enjoys flaunting his hard earned wealth on social media, posted a picture of himself in a brand new Rolls Royce—which seemed like the ideal situation to shit all over his haters.

Here’s a closer look at how Conor captioned the pic:

I smell like a brand new car, wearing brand new clothes. Why would I ever give a fuck, about you gossiping hoes. #TheFaceOfRollsRoyce#50Rolls#MoneyMcGregorWhatsFloydGonnaDo? #TakeAllTheirNames#[email protected]#ThanksForTheCheese

McGregor’s seemingly taking aim at all those who have thrown shade his way, including Mayweather, who he even calls out with a little “MoneyMcGregor” tout of his own.

Who knows why Conor McGregor was so pissed off last night, but whoever made him angry should watch out, because he sounds like he’s coming for blood whenever he steps back into a ring—and that’s bad news for his opposition.

Conor McGregor was interviewed for Sports Centre, and the interviewer wasted no time in asking Conor the hard hitting questions. Conor explains where his relationship is at with Dana White after being dropped from UFC 200, and what he expects to earn if he was to fight Floyd Mayweather!


Floyd Mayweather Reportedly Offered Conor McGregor An Ungodly Sum Of Money For A New Year’s Eve Fight

Floyd Mayweather Reportedly Offered Conor McGregor An Ungodly Sum Of Money For A New Year’s Eve Fight

 

And apparently, it still isn’t enough to get the job done.

Reports indicate that pseudo-retired boxing great Floyd Mayweather offered UFC superstar Conor McGregor $50 million to fight in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve.

Bleacher Report notes that “Mayweather has yet to run it by UFC President Dana White, who must approve any bout involving UFC-contracted fighters,” so that could be some good news seeing asThe Notorious was seen yesterday with a smirk on his face after leaving a meeting with the UFC Commissioner.

However, critics point out that Mayweather’s offer, although sounding like a lot of money, is actually only nickels in the bank vault of a rake the rumored superfight could have in store, touting the fact that McGregor overpowers Money Mayweather in three foreign PPV markets – Europe, Australia and Canada – and the fact that Mayweather’s supposed last bout against Pacquiao paled in comparison to McGregor vs Nate Diaz, albeit a loss for the Irishman.

Simply put, it sounds like Dana White and the UFC side will want/deserve a little more coin when it comes to the negotiating table, and there’s so many things yet to be ironed out. White expressed that sentiment in a recent ESPN Radio interview with Russillo & Kanell.

“Let me put it to you this way. Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are in the same sport. It took how long for those two to fight? Now imagine how hard it would be to get (Mayweather and McGregor) to fight. They’re not in the same sport.” …

… “Is this thing going to be MMA or boxing rules? Who’s getting the lion’s share of the money? This and that. It’s impossible. But like I’ve said, “Floyd, you want to fight Conor, call me.”

Boxing? MMA? How many rounds? Round legnth? Who’s officiating? Who’s broadcasting? The list goes on. So much money tied up in this baby if it actually happens.


Floyd Mayweather Jr. Confirms Talks With Conor McGregor, Says Fight Will ‘Absolutely’ Happen

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Confirms Talks With Conor McGregor, Says Fight Will ‘Absolutely’ Happen

 

Floyd Mayweather seems pretty confident that a crossover fight against Conor McGregor will happen. Earlier this month, a rumor spread on the Internet of a possible boxing match between McGregor and Mayweather, which was quickly shot down by UFC president Dana White.

On Friday, Mayweather sat down with Showtime to talk about a potential matchup with McGregor and he confirmed that he was negotiating with MMA superstar

“It’s really not a rumor. The fight (with McGregor) may happen. We really don’t know, as of right now, but do I think the fight will happen? Absolutely.”

During the interview, Mayweather was in full salesman mode trying to sell a fight with McGregor.

So I’m pretty sure it’s going be a tough fight for me. We really don’t know as of right now, but there’s been a lot of talk, and hopefully we can make the fight happen.

“He’s no pushover. One thing about Conor McGregor, he’s no pushover. He fell short in his last bout, but a true champion can always bounce back, so that’s a guy I can’t overlook.

“We haven’t picked a venue, we haven’t talked about money yet.”

Considering that the UFC’s contract with McGregor is rock solid I’m pretty sure that Mayweather is just trolling for attention.

I heard a joke once that best describes the difference between a millionaire and a billionaire. A millionaire goes to Vegas, and he walks into the high stakes area and says “Give me the most expensive chips you got! I’ve got 65 million dollars!” One of the billionaires sitting at the table turns to him and asks, “Do you want to go double or nothing?”

In a statement released through his Facebook account, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor spoke publicly for the first time about the controversy of him being pulled from UFC 200 because of his request to scale-back promotional duties in order to focus more on training. If I made my boss almost half a billion dollars in eight months I’d expect a little leeway too. Problem with that is he’s not solely responsible for those numbers, but I’ll make a completely unfounded guess and say he’s responsible for half that. What do you think?
