It is all but a foregone conclusion that Conor McGregor will definitely not fight Nate Diaz at UFC 200, although in the crazy world of MMA, anything is possible. However, McGregor seems confident that his next fight will be against Diaz in the UFC and he is confident he will avenge his loss.
After taking Diaz to task on Twitter yesterday, McGregor continued his social media campaign to get fan support behind getting the fight rebooked.
Working the rear hand uppercut with Roddy prior to UFC 196. A shot I called pre fight. Who else can call a shot like the rear hand uppercut on a big 6 foot lurch and then go out and dig that baby repeatedly into the nose? Anyone? Didn’t think so. Mark my fucking words I am going to toy with him in the rematch. Believe that.
Michael Bisping has been one of the middleweight’s top fighters since winning the Ultimate Fighter. He’s had some big wins, but also big loses. Reflecting on his career with MMAJunkie, Bisping talked about the new drug testing program with USADA and the history of fighters in his division failing drug tests:
“The more and more things – the more time that passes – the more I think that I’m the only middleweight that’s completely clean, and I’ve done that throughout my career,” said Bisping, who hasn’t fought since his wild January win over Silva. “I’ve taken God knows how many drug tests. (With) every single one, there hasn’t been even a hint of suspicion in any one of my tests.
“And we just see these legends falling – left, right and center.”
