McGregor moves up UFC pound-for-pound rankings

McGregor moves up UFC pound-for-pound rankings

A super fight between Mayweather and McGregor has been heavily rumoured throughout 2016, and the retired boxing legend didn't hold back when Notorious was brought up again earlier this week. McGregor is flying high after last week's knockout win over Eddie Alvarez.

Along with the likes of Conan O'Brien, Tom Brady, Ben Affleck, Venus and Serena Williams and Sylvester Stallone, Wahlberg was one of a host of celebrities to invest in the UFC when it was bought by Hollywood talent agency WME-IMG for $4 billion (approximately €3.77 billion) in July. "Floyd puts people to sleep too, with his fighting style, not with his hands", White told TMZ.

There is just one caveat: $100 million in cold, hard cash.

Following his historic (and near flawless) win over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, the two-division champ was nearly immediately tasked with answering a flood of questions about what would be next for him; would it be a shot at Tyron Woodley's welterweight title (which Joe Rogan likes his chances of winning, FWIW), a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz (which his coach has suggested), or a rematch with Jose Aldo at featherweight (LOLOLOL)?

There was a bit of confusion in the media room when Conor McGregor made the big announcement that had been teased for so many months. Let's just be happy with the fact that McGregor is a young lion in The UFC, who has years left to take on plenty of opponents.

Think about the ranchers in the West who are getting harassed by the Interior Department, or the laid-off timber workers. Think about the farmers here in Wisconsin who are being harassed by the EPA in the waters of the USA.

"I'm a living legend", Mayweather said. McGregor has asked to receive some sort of ownership stake in the UFC before he returns to fighting. Tell him to run around Showtime offices.

Dana White, president of the UFC said the way Floyd fights is a snooze fest. Boxer Andre Ward said it would not be a good idea for the UFC champion to take on the boxer in a boxing ring, reported Jefferson Lake of Sky Sports. He had a good performance - fair play to him.

"If I listened to any of that., we probably would be done". You know how Floyd knocks people out?

Conor McGregor is the greatest thing that has ever happened to the UFC. The card was full of incredible fights on paper and 3 title fights.

As big as that number is, it's not completely unlikely.
