Conor McGregor Lashes at Nate Diaz

The Irishman hasn’t stopped his months-long tyrants against his former competitors in the UFC. Conor McGregor continues to attack former opponents & fighter’s he’s never met after retiring from the UFC for the 3rd time. This was proven again after McGregor verbally assaulted his most prominent rival, Nate Diaz. Verbal assaults followed after Nate “The Stockton Slugger” Diaz claimed that Max Holloway was robbed of victory during UFC 251.

Max “Blessed” Holloway received his rematch with Alex “The Great” Volkanovski, with their bout highly anticipated by UFC loyalists. Acting as the Co-Headlining Fight against Jorge Masvidal & Kamaru Usman, domination during the initial two rounds aware seen with Max Holloway. It wouldn’t be until the 3rd round that Alex Volkanovski began regaining his composure.

Judges determined that Volkanovski won the 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds during their UFC 251 bout. Viewers could see that both men were equally matched throughout the 4th & 5th rounds. That should’ve meant victory for Max “Blessed” Holloway, with him holding a win over an additional round over Alex. Split-Decision Victory was given to Volkanovski, showing again that UFC Judges aren’t accurately capable to score an MMA fight.

When Nate Diaz made he remarked over Twitter, Conor McGregor didn’t hesitate to retort back to his former enemy. The Irishman lashed aggressively against Nate Diaz and informed him to “Shut Your B* A Up”. It would take less than five minutes before McGregor deleted this tweet, but thousands had screenshotted it & posted it online. Now becoming viral, Diaz supporters are waiting to see how the Stockton-Native reacts to McGregor.

Trilogy Fight Impossible

It’s continuously been speculated that Nate Diaz & Conor McGregor could have a third fight in the UFC, with both men creating a rivalry. The 1st match-up was seen at UFC 196, with Diaz dominating over the Irishman via submission. When both men returned six pay-per-views later at UFC 2020, Conor McGregor would physically pressure the Stockholm Slugger. Both meetings for a 3rd fight would be highly desired amongst UFC supporters. However, Dana White has refused to accept Conor McGregor back into the Ultimate Fighters Competition. Retiring a 3rd time over financial disputes was enough to anger UFCs President.

Conor McGregor Suggests Move to WWE

Conor “The Irishman” McGregor could be switching over to another variation of professional fighting. Competing in the UFC isn’t possible for McGregor after retiring for a 3rd time, with Dana White clarifying then wouldn’t accept another return from Conor after contract negotiations didn’t meet either parties’ expectations. After thirty days remaining quite regarding his future in professional fighting, McGregor has iterated interest in switching over to the WWE.

Speculation regarding Conor McGregor switching over to professional wrestling has grown tenfold since the retired UFC champion called out Vince McMahon, WWE Head Chairman for the Board of Directors. It’s known that McMahon hasn’t responded to McGregor on the concept of competing. However, the chances that these two men will reach a formal agreement is signed.

The Last Fight for McGregor

McGregor proved himself able to create complex storylines surrounding the Octagon when competing against Donald Cerrone during UFC 246 in January 2020. It took forty seconds for the Irishman to dominate over the Cowboy; a competitor recorded with the most fights in UFC history. MMA Supporters knew that Donald Cerrone was paid to lose against Conor McGregor at UFC 246, receiving $10 million for the minor beating. Dana White hoped that the Irishman’s dominance over Donald Cerrone would prompt follow-up fights with Justin Gaethje, Tony Ferguson, and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Gaethje was the exclusive contender not to refuse competition against McGregor.

Conor McGregor is entering the world of professional wrestling if perfectly suitable for his personality. The Irishman has often bolstered a reputation similar to WWE Opponents like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, without the additional niceties associated with professional wrestlers. It’s almost guaranteed his presence on the WWE Roster would significantly bolster views. However, supporters of McGregor would see that the Irishman is falsifying his moves. Moving from the WWE to the UFC is possible, reversing this order might prove challenging.

The WWE Executive & Husband to Vince McMahons Daughter, “Triple H”, confirmed that they’re interested in the concept of acquiring Conor McGregor. There are also hopes in obtaining Jon Jones & Daniel Cormier, which will prove more challenging with both expressing a lack of interest.

UFC Refusing McGregor Any Special Treatment

Conor McGregor, known for being difficult and at times, unruly inside and outside the cage has been advised that should he wish to return to the UFC, that any demands he makes will not be met and that the UFC will not give in to those demands.

McGregor was not at all pleased after learning plans he had to fight three times during 2020 would be on hold as a result of the pandemic. The Irishman was also angry after he was denied the chance to fight Justin Gaethje after he won the interim lightweight belt. Instead, that fight will go to Khabib Nurmagomedov in September.

That has McGregor believing his chances of fighting the winner before 2020 comes to a close as next to slim as he feels the fight will face further postponements. However, Dan Hooker, a lightweight who lost in a thrilling five round battle to Dustin Poirier, feels that McGregor cannot simply walk back into the UFC demanding he be given a fight.

Hooker, during an interview with MMA Fighting, said: “It doesn’t make a lot of sense, and it doesn’t make a lot of sense with what we’re seeing now with the UFC kind of standing their ground with a lot of these big-named guys who want to kind of call the shots, and the UFC’s jumping back in and saying we’re the ones running the show.

Hooker elaborated on his comments adding; “So I don’t think that benefits Conor very well, if he’s going to try to position himself for a title shot when compared to me.You’re seeing it now with Gilbert Burns – Usman fight. Jorge Masvidal was obviously the clear frontrunner for that title shot, but contract negotiations turned south and the UFC gave it to the guy who wants to fight.”

Dana White has no intentions to pursue McGregor

The comments made by Hooker come on the heels of Dana White, the president of the UFC was adamant that he will not attempt to convince McGregor not to retire and instead will focus his energies on those that do want to fight.

White commented last week on the situation stating: “Conor McGregor is retired. I don’t chase guys that don’t want to fight. I don’t chase guys. We offer guys three fights a year. You get three fights a year, if you don’t want to fight, I’ve got a roster full of people who want to fight.”

This is not the first time the Irishman has retired, as to whether he will attempt another comeback is unknown, but more unknown is whether the UFC will welcome him back after his multiple shenanigans, both in and out of the UFC.

Jorge Masvidal Responds to Ali Abdelaziz

The COVID-19 Pandemic has forced competitors in the Ultimate Fighting Championship to sustain social media personalities, meaning their public problems with potential opponents are being issued through Twitter & Instagram. These heated discussions are now extending beyond UFC Fighters, with managers getting involved in the smack talk. This follows after Ali Abdelaziz claimed that Jorge Masvidal isn’t worthy of being on the “EA Sports: UFC Four” front cover. Those remarks didn’t sit well with the BMF Titleholder, prompting Jorge Masvidal to respond with violent undertones towards the manager of Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Most were surprised that Jorge Masvidal didn’t hesitate to respond angrily towards Ali Abdelaziz. He’s already struggling to maintain a professional relationship with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, which Jorge has happily obliged after Dana White has continuously offered him lower salaries for fighting. Jorge was promised increased payments with his latest UFC Contract, which Dana White hasn’t honoured. It’s prompted Gamebred to refuse to sign for his next fight. Stalemates between Jorge Masvidal & Dana White are now being maintained daily.

The UFC President will inevitably cave under the desire of wanting to please fans, who are desperate to see Masvidal return. His return would’ve been maintained at UFC 251 against Kamaru Usman, possibly obtaining the UFC Welterweight Championship Belt. Dana White cancelled that fight unexpectedly on Masvidal when he requested his contract agreement be honoured, with the UFC President selecting Gilbert Burns to battle Usman instead.

Social Media Criticism

Jorge Masvidal hasn’t hesitated to provide inside details into contract negotiations with Dana White. It’s prompted both men to engage in verbal abuse over public platforms. Multiple competitors have implemented this behaviour after the UFC President has refused to pay their standard appearance fees. Dana continuously has cited the coronavirus to these competitors, even though the UFC hasn’t faced significant losses during the pandemic.

From the fighter’s perspective, it appears that Dana White is selfishly trying to sustain the highest volume of reserve funds possible. The president is unconcerned what minimal salaries would evoke onto UFC Fighters, who maintain significant mortgages & monthly bills. Smaller appearances fees would force them to sell acquired property, which they refuse under any scenario.

Umar Nurmagomedov Making UFC Debut

The never-ending skillsets shown by the Nurmagomedov will be displayed again with the UFC. It’s been announced that Umar Nurmagomedov, the cousin of Khabib Nurmagomedov, will make his debut appearance in the UFC at Fight Island in July 2020. It’s expected that Umar will maintain an undefeated record in the highest level of professional MMA. Umar Nurmagomedov currently has an undefeated professional record at twelve wins and zero losses. These statistics were acquired when Umar competed in the Gorilla Fighting Championship, where he’d overcome notable competitors & garner the interest of Dana White. It was after Umar defeated Argentine Brian Gonzales that his contract was cemented with the UFC. Expected a prolonged career from the cousin of Khabib Nurmagomedov, which will bring him special benefits when negotiating with Dana White.

Dana White has initially planned to have Umar Nurmagomedov make his formal debut at UFC 249, which was slated to be headlined by Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Traveling restrictions & foolish planning from Khabib prompted this scheduling to be altered. Tony Ferguson would instead compete again Justin Gaethje, ultimately losing his Interim Lightweight Championship to the younger athlete. Most didn’t anticipate Justin Gaethje to dominate in UFC 249, where he’d shock analysts & immediately become one of the most desirable fighters in the competition.

Umar Nurmagomedov didn’t plan for Justin Gaethje to take his spotlight. The plan was for Khabibs cousin to dominate his bantamweight fight & become the newest name to garner popularity in the UFC. Umar wouldn’t have had anyway to leave Russia, and travel to the United States of America. Travel restrictions forced both Nurmagomedov family members to remain inside their respective country. It’s expected that special permissions will be made for Umar & Khabib when travelling from Russia for Fight Island. This follows as governments worldwide have begun lifting their lockdown measures, including aviation operations.

Identical Fighting Styles

It should be mentioned that Umar Nurmagomedov maintains an identical fighting style to Khabib. Both men have trained with Khabibs father for 10+ years, with them also receiving additional assistance from other coaches in the United States and Russia. Umar has formally trained with Javier Mendes at the American Kickboxing Academy. These facts indicate that he’ll play a formidable role in the future of the UFC.

Dana White Losing UFCs Top Roster

The Ultimate Fighters Championship is losing a significant degree of their top contenders, which comes after Dana White continues to make formidable enemies with the men that made him famous & rich. Stresses associated with being the 1st international sport to resume operations amid the COVID-19 pandemic is starting to affect the UFC President, with hurdles that must be passed including planning five events in thirty days.

None of these venues other than the 1st has supported notable fighters, prompting analysts to question if roster contenders are serious when claiming they’ll retire over financial disputes. Dana White has continuously demanded that his top fights obtain 18% of their standard salaries for competing, meaning individuals like Jon Jones and Conor McGregor wouldn’t receive substantial payments for their services.

The 18% demand follows after Dana White remarked his goal to protect the corporate division while providing executives with their yearly bonuses & stock options. This would come at the livelihood of fighters that’ve made the UFC famous, earning this sporting association hundreds of millions in profits per year. Turning his back against these men & women show the lack of disrespect garnered by Dana White since becoming noteworthy friends with Donald Trump.

Fighters Leaving the UFC

Henry Cejudo was the 1st competitor to announce his retirement from the UFC over financial disputes, which was barely reported & considered inconsequential for the Bantamweight Division. It was when Jon Jones announced his retirement following Dana White’s refusal to negotiate that top contender leaving was taken seriously by analysts. UFC Partners are also concerned, which extends towards the Board of Directors, and overall workforce. The exclusive individual unconcerned with these retirements in Dana White, with his responses, often remarking a “F*** You” attitude towards these men.

The latest fighter to confirm his retirement is Conor McGregor, which came after Dana White continuously requested that the Irishman compete against opponents in higher weight divisions. The UFC President knows fully that McGregor’s body cannot handle the required muscle tone needed to compete in these divisions, allowing Dana White to offer Conor a lower per-fight salary for lightweight opponents. Shady tactics from the UFC President saw his most noteworthy athlete retire from the competitor for the 3rd time. Losing Jorge Masvidal or any other competitors could result in millions of fans leaving the UFC.

Gaethje Versus McGregor is Possible

The Interim Lightweight Championship was acquired by Justin Gaethje earlier in May 2020. Since that victory over Tony Ferguson, Gaethje has become a desirable opponent for those contesting his championship belt. Under this condition of being Interim Champion, it’s expected that he’ll next compete against Khabib Nurmagomedov for the “UFC Lightweight Championship”. However, Justin Gaethje has publicly admitted that he’d rather compete against Conor McGregor before battling it out with Khabib. This follows after McGregor has continually dismissed the skillsets associated with Gaethje, calling him ignorant slurs over social media. Justin believes it’s time for the Irishman to stop talking & take his final leave for Mixed Martial Arts.

These sentiments from Justin Gaethje were remarked through the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast, which is slated to move over to Spotify after being sold for $50 million. Justin Gaethje spoke about his experience at UFC 249, that his skillsets dominated over one of the competitions most dominate fighters. He mentioned how Conor McGregor couldn’t compete against Tony Ferguson, making him wonder why the Irishman believes he’s capable of winning a fight between them. The likelihood of this occurring against Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje is 20/100 with oddsmakers in Las Vegas. Conor should back down before he’s publicly shamed in front of millions for a 3rd time, with the 1st being against Nate Diaz.

When Joe Rogan asked how a fight against Conor McGregor would end for Justin Gaethje, the Interim Champion noted that the Irishman could not beat him under any conditions. That Gaethje will do to McGregor what Conor did to Cerrone. This means a knockout within forty seconds. Justin Gaethje finalized his remarks about Conor McGregor by noting he wants the Irishman to stop talking, that his position in the UFC is pointless now.

McGregor’s Future in the UFC

Conor McGregor hasn’t responded to the claims made by Justin Gaethje. All focus seems centred around Khabib Nurmagomedov for the Irishman, with McGregor desperate to return to championship status. Obtaining a 2nd fight with Khabib wouldn’t prove beneficial for Conor, who was defeated by the Russian MMA Athlete at their previous meeting. Considering that Khabibs skillsets have improved since that fight, McGregor would get dominated for the 2nd time.

McGregor Comes Out Foolish Over Twitter

The Irishman continues to parade himself foolishly and disrespectfully, which is consistent with his personality. Many fighters are publicly shaming Conor McGregor after he claimed himself to be the “Greatest of All Time”. Supports behind the Irishman themselves were conflicted over his sentiments. McGregor might be the UFCs most exciting fighter on their roster, but he’s far from their most significant. Those that previously defeated Conor since 2016 reminded him of his losses.

Conor McGregor believes that he’s the 2nd Greatest of All Time Fighter in history. He argued that his ranking is tied with Anderson Silva, the next GOAT. UFC Competitors like Jon Jones, Nate Diaz, and Khabib Nurmagomedov roasted McGregor for his foolish remarks. The 1st individual to publicly shame Conor was Nate Diaz, where he informed the Irishman that submitting him was easily accomplished.

Diaz noted that he took McGregor faster to the ground than any other opponent he’s competed against. Nate clarified that the numerous punches landed onto McGregor were faster than that of Floyd Mayweather Junior. Statistically, this isn’t incorrect, but the sentiments from Nate were foolish. Conor would ultimately return to fight Diaz again, where the Irishman would become victorious.

Sentiments from Khabib

Khabib Nurmagomedov replied to the GOAT List issued by Conor McGregor. The Irishman believes that Khabib isn’t ranked in the top ten, even though Nurmagomedov stands at 28-0. This record is considerably better than Conor’s and shows that COVID-19 is returning the Irish Native to his delusional self.

Nurmagomedov remarked that Conor hasn’t even defended his championship titles, that he tapped out in all three standard divisions of the UFC. Sentiments from Khabib clarified that McGregor declined fines fights from multiple fighters, showing that the argument doesn’t matter, but money does. Khabib ended his statements to Conor by noting he’s the “Greatest UFC Troll of All Time”.

It should be mentioned that these arguments are typically pointless and don’t hold value towards the MMA Community. What holds validity is statistics, which show Jon Jones as the UFCs Greatest of All Time.

Arizona and Vegas Competing for UFCs Next Venue

The President of the Ultimate Fighting Competition, Dana White, has confirmed that their next venue will be held in either Las Vegas or Arizona. Plans to return fight promotions to Las Vegas have been prevalent since the COVID-19 Pandemic forced the UFC into submission. There’s a substantial chance that Dana White won’t achieve his desire of returning to Las Vegas yet, with the Nevada Gaming Commission and State Government has not lifted restrictions on entertainment venues. This will prompt the UFC to return to Arizona, the nearby brother to Nevada. They’ve already confirmed that Dana White’s fighting competition is permitted.

This follows after Donald Trump allowed State Governments to lift their respective social distancing measures, enabling economies across the country to resume operations. There are notable concerns regarding this decision amid American civilians and fighters in the UFC. Both groups are worried that by restarting State economies, the rate of infections will skyrocket and prompt an increased percentage of that respective individual contracting the virus.

Every time Dana White has been questioned on his protection measures for fighters, anger towards these reporters has continuously grown more violent. Tyrants from Dana White have concerned competitors in the UFC, with those individuals refusing to compete. The UFC President’s response was releasing that fighter from their contract. There haven’t been any punishments against Dana White for his ignorant behaviour & unsafe conditions for employees, which were proven amidst the last three UFC events.

No Punishments for Dana White

There were on-site personnel wearing protective face equipment and others that weren’t. Individual staff sanitized their hands regularly, while others were seen refusing the opportunity. This revealed that the sanitation measures enforced under social distancing protocols aren’t being followed. There won’t be any federal punishments ensued onto Dana White for breaking these protocols, which complies with his close friendship to Donald Trump.

Countless sports institutions across America have received an influx of fines for trying to restart operations, while Dana White has received continuous congratulations from Dana White. For someone who claims to be a man of the people, Dana White has continuously shown a high degree of ignorance in 2019 and 2020.

Joe Rogan Reverts Social Distancing Remarks

Supporters behind Joe Rogan were disappointed with the infamous commentator went against his previous statements to Dana White. Rogan first emphasized that he would commentate UFC 249 under any conditions, believing the UFC President to be foolish to not obeying social distancing. Being aware of the impending backlash against him, Rogan wouldn’t announce that he’d be commentating UFC 249 on May 9th. This would mark the 1st time that UFC fanatics have seen their favourite commentator since the sport was shut down in early March.

Rogan believed that it’d be inevitable for some fighters or personnel to have the virus; this was his first mindset. Joe would look foolish and prove himself correct when it was confirmed that Ronaldo Souza had contracted COVID-19. His presence at UFC 249 means that all individuals at this Pay-Per-View could contract the virus, including Joe Rogan. Ronaldo Souza wouldn’t be permitted to fight Uriah Hall after testing positive for COVID-19, with his cornerman also contracting the virus.

Commentating Issues

Joe Rogan, Jon Anik, and Daniel Cormier were all tested upon their arrival. This extended to all filming and organizing personnel. All three commentators would test negative for the virus, which allowed for Rogan to interview fighters after winning their respective fights in the Octagon. This went against everything that Joe Rogan had previously remarked less than one month ago. When Rogan wasn’t permitted to sit beside his fellow commentators, the podcasters mentioned several times that he was displeased for having to remove himself from these men. Considering that the UFC allowed Rogan to interview fighters but not commentate with his co-hosts, the anger is somewhat justified. It still doesn’t excuse the remarks made and then reverted by Rogan.

Those filming on-site saw Dana White shoot Joe Rogan multiple looks for his remarks, clearly displeased with how the commentator reacted. This follows after the two men have clashed numerous times, with some suggesting they enter the Octagon and settle their differences the UFC way. Considering that Rogan is more significant than most UFC fighters, Dana White wouldn’t have a single chance of winning.
