When asked by media at the UFC 216 post-fight press conference about McGregor's status, UFC president Dana White declared that "The Notorious" was still interested in a 2017 fight following his boxing joust with Floyd Mayweather.
The Irishman is certainly not short of options but it appears that there are two that stand out when it comes to his return to the Octagon. You know, who wouldn't want to see the third fight? In the UFC 216 headliner on October 7, Ferguson showed his determination and versatility against fellow top-10 talent Kevin Lee, outlasting "The Motown Phenom" and locking up a attractive triangle choke in the third round to win the UFC interim lightweight title.
But it may not be exactly what McGregor has in mind. Whatever happens, I don't know, but I've said this already, I would like to see Diaz three.
Dow Jones technical error spreads fake news story of Google acquiring Apple
Dow Jones has since put out a statement saying that the freaky , now removed, headlines were the result of a " technical error ". Dow Jones staffers apparently did that at some point in the past, then someone screwed up by pushing the "publish" button.
All the more exciting is that it seems as though the UFC lightweight unification will go ahead sooner rather than later.
McGregor is of course coming off one of the biggest drawing PPVs of all time. However, he prefers a third meeting with Diaz and thinks that fight fans feel the same way. I'd love to go into that WWE and have a real knock. "If Ferguson tries to stand with Conor for an extended period of time it will be lights out, in my opinion...he's tough and durable, so he may take a couple of smacks, but at the end of the day Conor's going to be way too clean and too technical to... he won't get touched".
Should McGregor refuse to face the aforementioned Ferguson, the UFC reserves the right to strip him of the Undisputed title.
Cook County officials to vote on repealing sugary drink tax
In the latest poll, about 79 percent said they would not support a commissioner for re-election should they support the tax. The measure likely to be endorsed by the county board's finance committee Tuesday would end the tax on December 1.
In the past, it was reported that in January WWE presented McGregor with "a hefty offer", which he declined."Conor is a huge wrestling fan". His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock. And if there is a match with a top star in the company, he'll definitely make more coin than he would have if he just showed up to do some trash talking and that was it. He watched these guys when he was younger. He goes in. He looks to finish fights.
