The two obvious choices in MMA would be a lightweight title defense against next weekend's interim champion or a third fight with Diaz (19-11). Diaz submitted McGregor in March 2016, before dropping a majority decision in a rematch five months later. Diaz has not fought since their second fight.

"I'm happy they're fighting," said McGregor, on Ferguson and Lee. "This is what I wanted, because they're all bums at the end of the day. Make no mistake about that. I'm just happy they're fighting. I want to see them compete."Too many of them pull out right at the wire, and we're still not at this fight yet. So, I'm just going to pray that this one goes ahead. Of course, Nate is still there waiting, but he'll be left waiting until we figure something out."

In addition to those two options, McGregor mentioned undefeated lightweights Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0) and Justin Gaethje (18-0), as well as former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (25-2).

V: Fooking If Conor is booked against Khabib we'll never ever see either of them fight in the Octagon again.

I like Conor's style of trash talk, where he says things that don't make sense and periodically slips in an insult. I don't mean that sarcastically it's really effective, because it makes the other guy's response gibberish and and makes them mad at the same time. Diaz made him look stupid by just ignoring him and insulting him instead of responding, but most people get flustered. Like, if you try and respond by pointing out that if everyone else is a bum and everyone he fights is trash, his achievements are meaningless and all that poo poo about challenging himself makes no sense, he'll just say he forgot your name and call you poor

He's another one of those dudes with a real disconnect between how cool he is in the ring and how much of a dickbag he comes across in social media and interviews. Put him in the Cody Garbrandt folder of "Guys I would watch fight all day every day but never want to hear speak again".

I understood it as "still recovering from botched weight cut", not a duck. I don't think Khabib is ducking Ferguson, though he might if he thought he could get a fight with Conor out of it.

I remember him appearing in a bunch of press conferences wearing sunglasses indoors at age 32. That was really fuckin' stupid.

But then I also remember him and Dos Anjos having a sick back and forth fight for 25 minutes at full speed at altitude in Mexico, and that was fuckin' rad.

I've been to Mexico City a couple of times and the altitude is a real thing. Climbing a short flight of stairs suddenly feels like an effort. That they fought five rounds, and both gave the impression that they could have gone another five, is loving insane.

I'm still sad that we never got to see RDA trounce Conor.

I wasn't really paying attention to the media stuff around Ferguson/Lee but my wife pointed out the t-shirt that Uncle Dana was wearing. I guess if you wanted to make sure the dudes main eventing one of your PPVs knew they were the consolation prize, there really is no better way than this.

I went over my notes for the OP and I realised that when I was writing it up (using BBCeditor to preview what it should look like) and I realised that the only thing I actually saw was the awesome hair on the NYSAC official in the background. There was just a big blue-brown blur in the middle of the image where a champion should have been.

the RDA vs Toby fight was not good at all, Tony poked him in the eye and it noticeably made RDA completely useless afterward. Tony got a very stern warning though so it was all fair.

Gus was winning the fight but it was actually a fight before he blinded him. Gus just completely eviscerating a mostly blind Glover was one of the hardest things to watch I've seen in fighting.

The Glover vs Gus fight was one sided as gently caress but Gus still made harder work of it than he needed to. Teixeira was clearly outmatched from the get go and Gus was sprinting out of range at the first sign of offense. Frustrating fight, really.
