Conor McGregor was already sitting on top of the mixed martial arts (MMA) world before knocking out Eddie Alvarez in the main event of UFC 205 last weekend (Sat., Nov. 12, 2016) to claim the lightweight title; becoming the only man to hold two division titles simultaneously.
The WWE is looking to capitalize on the hype around Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather by getting the two men on their television programming.
When the boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather finally came to fruition, a lot of fans who don’t like the idea of it compared the whole idea to something that would happen in pro wrestling. So it should come as no surprise that the WWE is looking to get involved in the promotion of the August 26th bout as well.
The number-one contender to the UFC middleweight title has opened as a large favorite over the current champ.
At this time last week, the UFC’s middleweight division was effectively stalled by a proposed fight between 185-pound champion Michael Bisping and the returning Georges St-Pierre. When GSP tried to delay the fight until November (or later), UFC president Dana White finally stepped in and took St-Pierre’s shot at the title away. Enter Yoel Romero.
In the war of pre-fight banter, Yoel Romero just went nuclear.
Sometimes all it takes for a fighter to become inspired is the right foil. For Anderson Silva it was Chael Sonnen, for Ronda Rousey it was Miesha Tate, for Conor McGregor it’s been just about everyone. And now it seems that Michael Bisping has sparked inspiration in Yoel Romero. The former Olympic silver medalist is tentatively scheduled to be the next title challenger for Bisping’s UFC middleweight title, following his November win over former champ Chris Weidman.
08 November 2016 – Tokyo, Japan: The largest sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced another key addition to its team of senior leaders with the appointment of Japanese executive Yoshiaki Ito as President of ONE Championship (Japan). The promotion looks to expand its reach into the country and other Asian nations in the near future.
Tristar Gym head coach Firas Zahabi states his reasons why Georges St-Pierre should fight either Conor McGregor or Michael Bisping.
After four years on the shelf, Georges St-Pierre was finally slated for his UFC return against Michael Bisping in a middleweight title fight. But after only two months since it was announced, the UFC has reportedly decided to scrap the matchup and have Bisping face Yoel Romero, instead.
ONE Championship welterweight contender Zebaztian “The Bandit” Kadestam might have been born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, but he found his second home 5,792 miles away from his birthplace.
With a professional record of nine wins and three losses, Kadestam believes that the well-established mixed martial arts scene in the Philippines played a pivotal role in his career and to where he is presently.
