McGregor weighs in as UFC seeks lightweight clarity

McGregor weighs in as UFC seeks lightweight clarity”

McGregor was arrested in Corsica in September previous year on charges of alleged sexual harassment and indecent exposure. A lot of time has passed. That's it. I'll keep my calm and move on.

Conor McGregor reacts to his win over Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone during a UFC 246 welterweight mixed martial arts bout Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020, in Las Vegas. White, who earlier implied that Nurmagomedov's return is directly related to how UFC 257 pans out, was starting to reiterate his prior statement, but before he could have formed the sentence, Conor McGregor forced himself into the conversation and did put forward a solid assertion.

The Irishman is now preparing for his return at UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier on Saturday, but that comes after McGregor announced his retirement from the promotion in June of past year.

McGregor (22-4), a former undisputed champion at lightweight, weighed in at 155 pounds. "I'll show the world what's what over time".

For McGregor, he says he was cleared of any wrongdoing and is just focused on the fight. I'm sure he would love to have a belt around his waist again to prove the haters wrong.

Organisers are expecting to have almost 2,000 socially-distanced fans at the new 18,000-capacity Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. "We'll see what happens".

Nurmagomedov announced his retirement immediately after taking his flawless mixed martial arts record to 29-0 by beating Justin Gaethje in a lightweight bout last October. He does not want to give the rematch, Nate gave the rematch straight away so we were straight in and I put the work in. McGregor was also reportedly being investigated for two different incidents of sexual assault in 2019.

Conor McGregor is one of the biggest fighters in the world and whenever he has a fight coming up, people get excited. What's the problem? It's a mental break and that's what I feel happened. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on both ESPN and ESPN+, with the five-fight main card airing on ESPN+ pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET. "But I predict a title strip".

However, controversy ensued the following year when, having been stripped of both UFC titles by this point, he attacked a bus containing Khabib Nurmagomedov, who would go on to succeed McGregor as lightweight champion a few days later.

Poirier is the #1 seed and has already earned The Eagle's respect following their bout at UFC 242, but Nurmagomedov's storied history with McGregor - and the Notorious One's considerable popularity and draw rate on PPV - is impossible to ignore.
