I cant see him getting anywhere near Rockhold without racking up a win against another top fighter. Romero is next up and i would say that Jacare and Wiedman are a level above. Probably just behind Welterweight as the toughest division.

Looking forward to this weekends action. Cant see anything but a McGregor win despite the weight difference. Dos Anjos on the other had would have been a totally different proposition. I can see why the UFC made the fight but a fight against Frankie would have been my preference when Dos Anjos dropped out.

That boy sure can take a punch! Thought McGregor had complete control in the first round. He threw some massive uppercuts but it didn't seem to faze him.

McGregor - I'm humble in victory, humble in defeat.

Fair play Diaz. Toughed it out and drew Conor into his game. Let's see if that Anik / Amik or whatever his name is gets the tattoo done now. Diaz will definitely be calling him out now.

His top game is pretty solid but he's not great off his back. Mendes showed that. Not many fighters can roll with Diaz so as soon as he shot he was in trouble. He must have been hurt/gassed beforehand to even shoot for it. Doesn't tarnish his Aldo win too much but it does put into perspective how good a fighter Diaz has become (alongside his win over Michael Johnson).

Some great fights announced last week too:

Rothwell vs Dos Santos
Nurmagomedov vs Fergusson
Evans vs Rua
Machida vs Henderson
Cormier vs Bones Jones
Overeem vs Arlovski
Werdum vs Miorcic
Jacarae vs Belfort
Maia vs Brown
Rockhold vs Wiedman
Cruz vs Faber
McDonald vs Thompson

My picks in bold. What does everyone reckon?

I see the press are going to town with the sad news of Joao Carvalho's death.

He's smaller than Rey Mysterio Jr, I can't see him being anything other than a manager who occasionally gets physically involved. Oh, btw, this retirement talk is surely bunk.

Clearly a play for more money and control. UFC calling his bluff so we'll see how this plays out. Is 'professional wrestling' still a thing?

Conor McGregor statement

I am just trying to do my job and fight here.
I am paid to fight. I am not yet paid to promote.
I have become lost in the game of promotion and forgot about the art of fighting.
There comes a time when you need to stop handing out flyers and get back to the damn shop.
50 world tours, 200 press conferences, 1 million interviews, 2 million photo shoots, and at the end of it all I'm left looking down the barrel of a lens, staring defeat in the face, thinking of nothing but my incorrect fight preparation. And the many distractions that led to this.
Nothing else was going through my mind.
It is time to go back and live the life that got me this life.
Sitting in a car on the way to some dump in Conneticut or somewhere, to speak to Tim and Suzie on the nobody gives a **** morning show did not get me this life.
Talking to some lady that deep down doesn't give a **** about what I'm doing, but just wants some sound bites so she can maybe get her little tight ass a nice raise, and I'm cool with that too, I've been giving you all raises. But I need to focus on me now.
I'm coming for my revenge here.
I flew an entire team to Portugal and to Iceland to make my adjustments in preparation and fix my errors I made with the weight and the cardio prep.
With the right adjustments and the right focus, I will finish what I started in that last fight.
I will not do this if I am back on the road handing out flyers again.
I will always play the game and play it better than anybody, but just for this one, where I am coming off a loss, I asked for some leeway where I can just train and focus. I did not shut down all media requests. I simply wanted a slight adjustment.
But it was denied.
There had been 10 million dollars allocated for the promotion of this event is what they told me.
So as a gesture of good will, I went and not only saved that 10 million dollars in promotion money, I then went and tripled it for them.
And all with one tweet.
Keep that 10 mill to promote the other bums that need it. My shows are good.
I must isolate myself now.
I am facing a taller, longer and heavier man. I need to prepare correctly this time.
I can not dance for you this time.
It is time for the other monkeys to dance. I've danced us all the way here.
Nate's little mush head looks good up on that stage these days. Stuff him in front of the camera for it.
He came in with no shit to do that last one. I'd already done press conferences, interviews and shot the ads before RDA pulled out.
Maybe I'll hit Cabo this time and skull some shots pre-fight with no obligation.
I'm doing what I need for me now.
It is time to be selfish with my training again. It is the only way.
I feel the $400million I have generated for the company in my last three events, all inside 8 months, is enough to get me this slight leeway.
I am still ready to go for UFC 200.
I will offer, like I already did, to fly to New York for the big press conference that was scheduled, and then I will go back into training. With no distractions.
If this is not enough or they feel I have not deserved to sit this promotion run out this one time, well then I don't know what to say.
For the record also -
For USADA and for the UFC and my contract stipulations -
I AM NOT RETIRED.

Fair play. Interesting to see how this plays out. I see hit and run has already volunteered to main event for 200 so il assume ufc will play hard ball.

That's a cracking card, especially Silva vs Hall.
