McGregor’s Manager Talks Conor’s Future

Conor McGregor has remained a present force in the Ultimate Fighters Championship since defeating Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in January 2020. The Irishman made headlines earlier last week after UFC 249, which came when he made a tyrant of statements via Twitter. Nearly every competitor within the Lightweight Division was attacked by McGregor, showing the Irishman is desperate to fight anybody and reach a championship-level fight.

Conor hopes to compete against Justin Gaethje for the Interim Lightweight Championship Belt. Most are focused on the UFC Career of Conor McGregor, with others more concerned on his return to boxing. Details on who the Irishman is selecting throughout 2020-21 was revealed by his manager on May 12th.

The Manager of McGregor

Audie Attar provided multiple MMA news outlets with updated on Conor’s future in the Ultimate Fighters Championship. He remarked that Notorious will return to boxing in the future, with his primary concern right now being Mixed Martial Arts. Audie noted that McGregor hasn’t forgotten about boxing and plays to increase his weight by 2020, hoping to combat notable fighters like Tyson Fury.

The focus, for now, is obtaining a fight with either Tony Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov, or Justin Gaethje. Some believe McGregor isn’t deserving of a championship fight, with the Irishman previously retiring and then returning. He should fight through the ranks like any other competitor in the UFC. However, money talks and Conor brings in hundreds of millions for Dana White. That’s why he’ll continuously receive special treatment over other competitors.

Audie Attar remarked that either of his desired opponents hadn’t approached Conor McGregor. It’s suspected that Audie himself will have to start these delegations. All fighters in the UFC want to compete against Conor McGregor, with anyone who fights the Irishman earning $10 million or higher. This figure is substantially larger than what standard fighters like Justin Gaethje are accustomed to receiving. That’s why most analysts agree that Justin will select McGregor as his next opponent, with Khabib Nurmagomedov coming 2nd. There’s always the chance that Dana White will give Tony Ferguson a 2nd fight with Justin Gaethje before the new Interim Lightweight Heavyweight Champion can compete against McGregor or Nurmagomedov.

McGregor’s Future in UFC After COVID-19

The Ultimate Fighter’s Championship is slated to return on May 9th, with UFC Fans thrilled for the title headlining fight against Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson. There are supporters also excited for the return of Conor McGregor after defeating Donald Cerrone earlier in 2020. When the Irishman has been asked on his arrival, he’s continuously demanded that safety if his first and primary concern. But the former UFC Champion could return by July if the pandemic is contained.

Conor McGregor’s Manager, Audie Attar from Paradigm Sports Management, confirmed that returning in July is possible. These two men will determine the safety standards associated with the UFC at the May 9th Pay-Per-View. If measures are deemed satisfactory, Conor McGregor and Dana White will evaluate the next fight for Ireland’s Gladiator. Attar noted that the Irishman is concerned about the health & safety of UFC workforces, that he’ll demand more reliable protocols if Dana White wants him to return.

Considering that McGregor brings hundreds of millions into the UFCs revenue stream, Conor holds this unique position of power. This display of power was shown towards Irish Politicians, with McGregor demanding more reliable social distancing measures. His requests became viral and were met by Irish Politicians, prompting the country to rally for a possible Presidential Campaign in Ireland.

The Three Events

Dana White announced in late April that the UFC would hold three PPVs from on May 9th, 13th and 16th. This is the highest number of PPV Fights that the Ultimate Fighters Championship has experienced historically. It shows the desperation to obtain profits for the 2nd quarter of this year. These matches wouldn’t have been possible without the Florida State Boxing Commission & Florida State Government approving Martial Arts as an essential service.

Dana White expressed his gratitude multiple times towards the FSG, which enabled the UFC President to keep his promise as the 1st sport to return during COVID-19. However, numerous critics have expressed their anger towards Dana White. This includes the Centre for Disease Control & Prevention. However, Donald Trump is good friends with Dana White, meaning there’ll be no repercussions onto the UFC President or Florida State Government.

Ferguson Vs Nurmagomedov Cancelled Forever

Ferguson Vs Nurmagomedov Cancelled Forever

After the 5th time that a fight between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov was cancelled, everyone in the UFC Community believes this’ll be the fight that never happens. Even Dana White is beginning to think this match-up isn’t possible. It’s somewhat the final nail in the coffin for any potential of a fight occurring when the UFC President calls it quits. That wasn’t done without a prolonged effort on Dana White’s behalf. He continuously worked towards these two lightweight opponents fending off against each other, with personal issues or scheduling errors always forcing another delay. After the additional cancellation because of the COVID-19 pandemic and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s foolish actions with travelling, it appears Dana White isn’t willing to give the Russian Champion the 6th opportunity.

Dana White was questioned on the potential of a 6th fight, with the UFC President noting his fear towards scheduling this bout for the 6th time. Tony Ferguson has continuously expressed his anger and resentment towards Khabib after the Champion couldn’t leave Russia amidst COVID-19, which could’ve been avoided by Nurmagomedov remaining in the Middle East. The chances that Tony Ferguson would expel this anger in an unwarranted fashion is too extensive, prompting Dana White’s thoughts. Ferguson instead will compete against Justin Gaethje on May 9th at UFC 249, with Tony slated to win by a significant margin. There are minimal chances that Justin Gaethje will walk out of Florida as the Interim Lightweight Champion.

Religion Before Career for Khabib

The UFC Champion wouldn’t have competed against Tony Ferguson this late into the year either way. It’s Ramadan, which means Khabib is fasting for a prolonged period until the end of May. Nurmagomedov has infamously avoided fighting throughout this time, with other opponents claiming that Khabib shouldn’t be permitted to keep his champion belt when refusing to fight. Ferguson rose this point after Nurmagomedov cancelled their bout in late March.

Dana White is now proposing a secondary match-up between Connor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, which the Russian Fighter has refused multiple times. The UFC President will demand that Khabib fights or lose his belt for refusing, which has been a clear strategy for Nurmagomedov in the last year.

Dana White Breaks UFC Protocols

May 9th will mark a significant date for the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship, with multiple bouts being announced for an upcoming Pay-Per-View. One of these matches includes Justin Gaethje, who’ll be competing against Tony Ferguson. Justin wasn’t aware of the May 9th fight until it was announced publicly to supporters. This is a direct breach of UFC Protocols, which has upset Gaethje. Dana White didn’t provide the fighter with a choice, which is inappropriate when considering these men can lose their lives in the octagon. The UFC President didn’t believe it an issue, with Justin Gaethje previously being slated to compete against Tony Ferguson on April 18th. This would’ve been for UFC 249, which was ultimately cancelled because of the novel coronavirus prompting social distancing measured in America.

Justin Gaethje provided his insight regarding the unexpected announcement, speaking with ESPN reporters via videoconference. Justin mentioned that his immediate reaction was “What the Hell?”, which the UFC fighter being upset that Dana White didn’t follow standard protocols. Gaethje clarified that he understands the particular predicaments with the situation, which is why he’ll happily oblige with the May 9th fight. Justin Gaethje prefers to have a prolonged training camp, which won’t be possible this time around. He’ll be provided two weeks to hone MMA skillsets before competing against Ferguson.

Gaethje is determined to become the UFC Champion, which follows after winning three fights back-to-back. Formidable skillsets prompted him the opportunity to compete against Ferguson after Khabib Nurmagomedov backed down. This American fighter expressed that when competing for the world championship, you fight whenever and wherever the boss tells you. It should be mentioned that the three most recent bouts from Justin Gaethje saw him knockdown his opponents in the first round, getting knockouts each time.

Khabib Backs Down

The UFC Champion was forced to cancel his appearance at UFC 249. This forced decision followed after Khabib Nurmagomedov made multiple mistakes while travelling before the pandemic broke-out worldwide. He moved between America, Dubai, and Russia within two weeks. Vladimir Putin then announced that travel restrictions would be imposed for a prolonged period. Because of these restrictions, Khabib cannot compete. There’s the potential he’ll be stripped of his title for these mistakes.

Colby Covington Talks Down to Jon Jones

Colby Covington Talks Down to Jon Jones

The rivalry between Jon Jones and Colby Covington has continued throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This follows after the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion was arrested for drunk driving. Colby Covington took this opportunity to destroy Jones in a public manner, calling him a dirtbag and demanding that Jon would be better off in jail. These remarks follow after Colby Covington was speaking with Mike Heck’s Podcast. Called What the Heck – Chaos Edition, he expressed that his former roommate has become a steroid addict. That’s why Colby believes that Jon Jones drinks excessively and cheats on his wife regularly. Claims from Covington weren’t responded by the Light Heavyweight Champion, who won’t compete for the minimum of twelve months after this latest arrest.

Colby Covington has attended numerous podcasts from the virtual seat in the last several days. An additional podcast with Alexander Lee’s MMA Fighting, where Colby noted that we’re going through the worst pandemic is 100+ years, and this man decides to drive drunk. Covington mentioned that this behaviour is consistent with the Jon Jones he knew in college, where the champion would continually break the rules and not care about the consequences. It should be noted that Jon Jones has a significant number of charges, often relating to violence and drinking.

Colby then got personal to his former roommate, informing the Light Heavyweight Champion that he’s still a dirtbag. That you even cheat on your wife like back in college, that those steroids won’t make you feel any better and that you’ll never return to normal. Considering that Colby Covington lived with Jon Jones, it’s safe to say these remarks would be devasting for the champion to hear. Statements with Alexander Lee finished by Colby noting Jon Jones is a piece of shit and deserves to go to jail.

Previous Run-Ins

Most fans behind Jon Jones aren’t aware that he’s maintained multiple run-ins with law enforcement throughout his MMA Career. These law enforcement issues started long before his career as well. Considering this foolish man believes he’s the greatest fighter of all time, Jon Jones sure doesn’t portray the role like Muhammed Ali. Jones doesn’t stand for advocacy groups, or his fellow man like Ali previously did. No, the Light Heavyweight Champion is most concerned about his image. Similar to Floyd Mayweather Junior.

Dana White Purchasing Island for UFC Fights

»Posted by on Apr 11, 2020 in MMA | Comments Off on Dana White Purchasing Island for UFC Fights

Dana White Purchasing Island for UFC Fights

The Ultimate Fighter’s Championship has implemented every strategy possible to hold their 249th PPV Event. Their plans extended towards Dana White purchasing a private island, which would’ve allowed them to hold closed promotions. Fighters would’ve been flown to this island through Dana Whites private charters. Alterations in these strategies were enforced after multiple politicians, and large-scale CEO’s stepped in. This included governors throughout America, the Disney Corporation and ESPN. Following the involvement of these parties, UFC 249 has been terminated.

Dana White was priorly recorded by mentioning he was two days away from purchasing a private island. He expressed that infrastructure was already being manufactured and connections with international airports were booked. The problem under his outdated strategy was that international travelling in America is entirely cancelled. This means notable fighters like Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje and Donald Cerrone couldn’t attend these private venues. Dana White would contract fighters without recognizable names.

It should be mentioned that Dana White has continuously been defiant when tackling the COVID-19 Pandemic. It took him a prolonged period to allow employees to work from home. Implementing this measure was required after the American Government determined the UFC as Non-Essential. The defiant behaviour shown by Dana White saw its day, with Khabib Nurmagomedov unable to compete in UFC 249 against Tony Ferguson. This meant that the unstoppable fight was immediately stopped by Russian travel restrictions Trying to be more reliable than plague is just another foolish action from Dana White.

Who Was & Wasn’t Involved?

Multiple individuals were confirmed to appear at UFC 249. This included Bruce Buffer, who hasn’t missed a single PPV for Dana White is numerous years. Its shocked fans of the legend, with Bruce Buffer being more than eighty years of age. Joe Rogan has called Bruce Buffer a foolish man for committing to this event, with Rogan already confirming that he wouldn’t attend as a host. It’ll mark one of the 1st instances that Joe Rogan hasn’t attended a UFC PPV in 10+ years. These are the sort of changes being made during COVID-19.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Quarantined in Russia

Khabib Nurmagomedov Quarantined in Russia

The Russian Government has been severe in its approach towards the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel restrictions are more stringent than the standard country, with even notable athletes unable to locate flights outside their nation. This has prompted the UFC Lightweight Champion to announce he won’t be attending UFC 249. This has forced Dana White to establish a new title fight in two weeks. Khabib Nurmagomedov made this sombre announcement through social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter.

The Instagram post informed the MMA Community that he’s more upset at the concept of not fighting than anyone else. However, he understands the predicaments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. This marks the 4th time that a fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson has been cancelled. Multiple athletes and sporting analysts predicted that the two men wouldn’t compete. It leaves Dana White in an awkward position of creating a 5th fight for these two men, which would be diminished in its reliability.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is an unbeaten lightweight champion, competing in 28 Professional Fights with the UFC. His bout against Tony Ferguson was initially slated for April 15th in Brooklyn. Government legislation for social distancing forced Dana White to begin locating a new venue location, with the UFC President providing minimal details on the new venue. When Dana White was questioned on Khabib Nurmagomedov’s forced decision, the president didn’t give any insight into his thoughts. The lightweight champion often disputed the actions Dana White displayed throughout this pandemic, which has been ignorant and disrespectful.

Khabibs Backlash Against Dana White

Another moment where Khabib expressed anger towards Dana White was in his Instagram announcement. Nurmagomedov mentioned that he felt angry over specific individuals compelling him to fight, to risk his life during a pandemic. Khabib expressed that the entire world should be quarantined and that all individuals should be limited on travel. This extends towards government employees, celebrities and millionaires. The only individuals permitted should be medical staff needing to safe millions worldwide. Khabib couldn’t believe that Dana White would urge a fight to move forward, even if it risked the lives of his employees and fighters. It shows that money is more important than human beings for Dana White.
