There have been uncertainties with regards to Ronda Rousey’s return date. But apparently, UFC president Dana White may have dropped a valuable hint when he said that there was a “big chance” for a “Rowdy” comeback before the year ends .

According to Damon Martin of FOX Sports, Rousey has already been offered a fight against current women’s 135-pound champion Amanda Nunes for UFC 207 Live Streaming

on December 30th in Las Vegas. While nothing has been made final as of this posting, no agreements have been signed, and negotiations are said to be ongoing.

White had repeatedly mentioned that Rousey would be getting an immediate title shot upon her return, a scenario which legends like Don Frye are strongly against. But for her part, the current champion says that while she does intend to fight sooner than later, she is willing to wait for the offer to fight Rousey.

“I’d be happy to wait if they tell me, ‘You are gonna fight Ronda Rousey, for sure, next year, this day.’ I’d wait,” Nunes said. “But if it’s nothing for sure, if it’s nothing set, I can’t wait. I want to fight. But we’ll see.”

McGregor talks featherweight division and who he was supposed to fight at UFC 205

CONOR McGregor may be days away from fighting for the UFC lightweight title, but he just recently sent a not-so-subtle reminder to the featherweight division that he’s still the king at 145 pounds.

ufc-205

McGregor conquered former champion Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds when they met last December while staking his claim as the best featherweight fighter in the world.

Of course, McGregor has heard rumours that he’ll never be able to cut down to 145 pounds again and that’s part of the reason why he’s been competing outside the division for all of 2016. He’s also received criticism for taking fights at welterweight and now at lightweight rather than coming back to 145 pounds to defend his title for the first time.

McGregor fired back at the featherweights when speaking to Fox Sports (US) on the UFC 205 media conference call recently.

“Wherever I choose to go, I’m prepared to go there. I feel great at this weight. I mean I’m a lot leaner, I’m still eating a hell of a lot of food. Obviously, it’s tougher to get to featherweight, but I think it’s crazy the way they say I can’t get to featherweight no more or all these crazy things,” McGregor said.

“Like I ain’t the undisputed champion. Like I haven’t gone in there and taken out the whole division as early as last year. December of last year that was. Not even a year ago. Then they’re talking about stripping (the title) and vacating and all this stuff, it’s like hold on a minute — what did I just go and do there? Didn’t I just take out that division? Am I not champion?”

McGregor says instead of fighting Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 next weekend, he would have defended the featherweight belt against Frankie Edgar — if he had defeated Jose Aldo at UFC 200.

McGregor slammed Edgar, who is Alvarez’s teammate, by saying that he blew his chance to main event the first ever UFC card at Madison Square Garden by losing a unanimous decision to Aldo at UFC 200.

“Frankie wasn’t good enough or he should have been here. He wasn’t good enough to cut it. Frankie’s not good enough. Frankie’s just not good enough, I’m afraid,” McGregor said. “He just can’t cut it but maybe I might choose him next. I might destroy you, hopefully he gets through this other guy then I might pick him next.

“But this should have been me and Frankie, we all know that. He just wasn’t good enough to do what I did in 13 seconds. He had 50 minutes to do what I done in 13 seconds and he couldn’t do it. So here I am and there he is on the prelims.”

UFC president Dana White has insisted that with a win against Alvarez next weekend, McGregor will be forced to vacate one of his titles and move forward as either the lightweight or featherweight champion.

McGregor certainly doesn’t sound like a guy ready to give up anything if he makes history by becoming the first ever simultaneous two division champion in the UFC.

“Vacate? We’ll see about that. Why not defend them both? I fight every week. I can defend them both,” McGregor said.

As much as McGregor says he’s not done with the featherweight division yet, he might change his mind if he’s successful in taking out Alvarez at UFC 205.

McGregor’s coaches have raved about his performance in training ahead of the massive card in New York City and the outspoken Irishman seems to agree with them. If you like what you saw out of McGregor at 145 pounds, he teases to just wait and see what he can do at lightweight.

“Wherever I sign, I’m going to fight, you best believe I’m going to show up and be prepared,” McGregor said. “145, I’m the world champion. I took out them all. I’m damn good at 145 and I’m even better at 155.”

Conor McGregor vows to leave Eddie Alvarez ‘unconscious’ and take his title at UFC 205

The Irish MMA star said that Alvarez poses him no threat and also had some choice words for the WWE roster

diaz-v-mcgregor2

Conor McGregor expects an easy fight as he moves up a weight class to take on Eddie Alvarez in the headline event at UFC 205 in November .

The Irish MMA star is hoping to become the first ever fighter to hold UFC belts in two separate weight classes, and had some disparaging words for Alvarez, who he will face in the octagon on November 12th in New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Speaking in a live Facebook video Q&A for the Lad Bible, McGregor said: “I don’t think he poses any threat.

“He’s tough, he’s a tough kid. He’s got some good fights under his belt, good experience.

“I’m expecting him to come in and fight with his heart but I don’t see it going well for him. I feel he will be unconscious.”

Asked if his brand of psychological warfare verges on disrespectful, he said: “This is the fight business, I’m not going out thinking ‘psychological warfare’.

“That last press conference… I walked in happy, positively. I’m set for life. I am set for life. My family will never go hungry.

“I just wanted to enjoy it. Then they try and come at me, the whole lot of me. But if you want to come at the king you better be prepared because the king will come and take you out.

“It’s all fair in this business. Anything goes in this game. It’s a ruthless business. And I’m the most ruthless.”

When asked about disparaging comments he made towards the WWE roster earlier this year, he again reiterated his disdain for professional wrestling.

“Yeah – they’re dweebs! The whole lot of them,” he said.

Asked if he would ever make the switch from UFC to WWE in the future, McGregor said: “Maybe as CEO – maybe to take Vince out of the chair. But I don’t know.”

While Ronda Rousey is the only UFC fighter to appear in WWE after featuring in Wrestlemania 31 alongside The Rock last year, several wrestlers have made the transition to UFC competition, including Brock Lesnar and CM Punk – who lost his long-awaited debut fight at UFC 203 to Mickey Gall.

McGregor’s last fight was at UFC 202 in August, where he got revenge over welterweight fighter Nate Diaz after the American forced him to submit at UFC 196 in March – that’s still the only blemish in is UFC career, which currently reads 8-1 (20-3 MMA).

Conor McGregor to walk away from MMA after UFC 205 due to strained relationships

ufc205

UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor left the MMA world stunned back in April when he took to social media to announce his retirement ahead of UFC 200. At the time, McGregor was slated to fight Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC 200 in a highly anticipated rematch.

While the MMA community speculated as to whether or not McGregor’s retirement was real, or simply a negotiation tactic, McGregor and his team maintained that he featherweight champ was truly retired. It was only when UFC President Dana White announced that McGregor’s retirement would result in him being stripped of the featherweight title, and would have USADA ramifications that McGregor revealed that he wasn’t retired. Ultimately however, McGregor refused to fly to Las Vegas to do a press conference for the event, and as a result was subsequently pulled from the entire card.

With that being said, McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, has recently been open about the fact that McGregor only plans to stick around for another 2-3 years before hanging the gloves up. In addition, McGregor has stated on occasion that his plan has always been to take the fight game by storm, rise to the top, and then retire.

Ahead of McGregor’s UFC 205 lightweight title fight with Eddie Alvarez on November 12th, the featherweight champion apparently has a big announcement “out of left field” to make according to UFC President Dana White. While there has been no official word yet as to what the announcement is, a report from SmackHisFace.com has revealed that after UFC 205 McGregor will announce his retirement from MMA.

According to the report, teammates at SBG Ireland have stated that the stress of press conferences, media and television obligations, and training, in addition to fighting, have put strain on McGregor’s relationships back home, and as a result he will walk away from the sport for a “significant amount of time” in order to “get his life in order”.

In addition, it has been revealed that McGregor, who will give up one of the titles if victorious according to Dana White, will be relinquishing both title belts.
