Remark: Months after Conor McGregor launched a metallic dolly at a bus, injuring a gaggle of fighters, any hope of a easy return towards Khabib Nurmagomedov have been dashed Saturday night time following their four-round battle. Khabib had simply submitted McGregor with a neck crank when he turned his sights to McGregor’s nook, particularly jiu-jitsu coach and Bellator fighter Dillon Danis particularly.

Khabib pushed previous one Nevada Athletic Fee safety individual and jumped out of the cage, actually leaping at Danis as a brawl ensued. Safety was not in place to cease this from occurring regardless of the very fact safety was heavy with Las Vegas Metro Police hovered outdoors the cage. On the constructive aspect, this very simply might have taken a horrible flip and no one seems to have suffered any critical injury or damage (together with followers) within the commotion.

With Khabib elevating hell outdoors the cage, Conor exchanged swings with considered one of Khabib’s cornerman. Subsequent, two further males from Khabib’s nook jumped into the cage to go after McGregor. One among them, UFC fighter Zubaira Tukhugov sucker punched Conor McGregor from behind. Dangerous blood between these two had been stemming from Conor calling him a traitorous Chechen for his help of Khabib, a Dagestani man. Tukhogov had been giving interviews during the last week speaking about eager to struggle Conor outdoors the cage. Within the ensuing chaos, he took the chance to assault McGregor. Maybe not probably the most clever choice contemplating he WAS scheduled to struggle McGregor’s pal and teammate Artem Lobov later this month. Dana White stated Saturday night time he would by no means battle within the UFC once more. Sunday on social media, Tukhugov posted a video the place he gloated about taking a swing at McGregor.

The NAC is investigating what occurred and can possible dole out fines and suspensions. Saturday night time, they have been already withholding Khabib’s $2 million purse verify. In the event that they needed to see contrition, Khabib provided a weak apology when he spoke to the media later within the night time. McGregor was not harm by both of the 2 males who jumped him within the cage and posted on social media later already hyping a rematch with Nurmagomedov.


2) Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson (24-Three)

Peak: 5’11

Birthday: February 12, 1984

At present Preventing With: UFC

Final 5 fights:

– vs. Anthony Pettis – Win by way of TKO (damage) – UFC 229 – October 6, 2018

– vs. Kevin Lee – Win by way of submission (triangle choke) – UFC 216 – October 7, 2017

– vs. Rafael dos Anjos – Win by way of determination (unanimous) – TUF Finale – November 5, 2016

– vs. Lando Vanatta – Win by way of submission (Brabo choke) – UFC Battle Night time – July 13, 2016

– vs. Edson Barboza – Win by way of submission (Brabo choke) – UFC TUF 22 Finale – December 11, 2015

Subsequent scheduled look:

– Unknown

Remark: Tony Ferguson appeared nice in his win over Anthony Pettis Saturday night time. Had Pettis not suffered a damaged hand, it’s probably Ferguson would have completed him regardless. Pressured on account of accidents of his personal to be on the sidelines for almost a yr to the day, Ferguson now has 11 consecutive wins. With Khabib the undisputed champion, Ferguson wholesome, would the UFC even attempt to e-book this battle for a fifth time?


Three) “Notorious” Conor McGregor (21-Four)

Peak: 5’Eight

Birthday: July 14, 1988

Presently Preventing With: UFC

Final 5 fights:

– vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov – Loss by way of submission (neck crank) – UFC 229 – October 6, 2018

– vs. Eddie Alvarez – Win by way of TKO (strikes) – UFC 205 – November 12, 2016

– vs. Nate Diaz – Win by way of choice (cut up) – UFC 202 – August 20, 2016

– vs. Nate Diaz – Loss by way of submission (rear bare choke) – UFC 196 – March 5, 2016

– vs. Jose Aldo – Win by way of KO (punch) – UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor – December 12, 2015

Subsequent scheduled look:

– Unknown

Remark: As for the struggle, McGregor was unable to launch any semblance of a sustained assault towards Khabib. It was a dominant efficiency from Nurmagomedov (although McGregor was a 10-9 chief for spherical three, Khabib is the one fighter within the UFC to manhandle Conor on the bottom). The undisputed champion is now 27-Zero in his skilled profession with out even a scare or slender choice.

McGregor’s subsequent struggle shall be one of the crucial fascinating tales going into 2019. Even when he needs a direct rematch with Khabib, the sanctioned struggle didn’t lead you to consider a second struggle instantly would go a lot totally different. It might in all probability be extra lifelike for McGregor to matchup with a rematch towards the winner between Nate Diaz or Dustin Poirier.


Four) Dustin Poirier (24-5, 1 NC)

Peak: 5’9

Birthday: January 19, 1989

At present Preventing With: UFC

Final 5 fights:

– vs. Eddie Alvarez – Win by way of TKO (strikes) – UFC on Fox – July 28, 2018

– vs. Justin Gaethje – Win by way of TKO (strikes) – UFC on Fox – April 14, 2018

– vs. Anthony Pettis – Win by way of TKO (rib damage) – UFC Battle Night time – November 11, 2017

– vs. Eddie Alvarez – No Contest (unlawful strikes) – UFC 211: Miocic vs. dos Santos – Might 13, 2017

– vs. Jim Miller – Win by way of choice (cut up) – UFC 208 – February 11, 2017

Subsequent scheduled look:

– vs. Nate Diaz – UFC 230 – November Three, 2018

Remark: Poirier might burst into the title image with one other nice displaying when he fights Nate Diaz subsequent month at Madison Sq. Backyard. After a lot back-and-forth their battle will truly occur (although I suppose we can’t say that till they step contained in the cage on struggle night time), and within the light-weight division. Hopes of a 165-pound contest and for 5 rounds proved to be wasted. However, even for 3 rounds, Poirier and Diaz is the struggle most individuals who see UFC 230 will anticipate most.

Since shifting again as much as light-weight in 2015 (after his loss to Conor McGregor sarcastically), Poirier is Eight-1 (1 No Contest) and has three consecutive TKO wins over Anthony Pettis, Justin Gaethje and Eddie Alvarez.
