UFC president Dana White announced Conor McGregor's next fight

The brash UFC star is no stranger to the WWE either and has engaged in considerable banter, going back and forth with several WWE Superstars, including his trash talk against John Cena and Sheamus in the past.

Speaking after the fight itself, Dana White addressed the endless gossip surrounding a potential Diaz trilogy getting booked for McGregor's comeback claiming that it wasn't even on the table. Rich Franklin had become second fiddle to Anderson Silva at middleweight, but was too small to hang with bigger and stronger light heavyweights.

"He said he was looking forward to watching this fight; he hasn't said nothing".

This is the theory, at least.

And the victory has got him noticed by the people who count.

"What sounds better than 10 consecutive?" Roddy isn't so sure Ferguson could absorb that kind of damage without going down and out for good. He goes in. He looks to finish fights.

Kevin Lee has detailed his UFC 216 weight cut. He ended up fighting, and losing, at 140-pounds.

Ferguson, on the other hand had a few things to say about the nomination. That's what a title belt is: a narrative in physical form, a promotional tool designed to give life to a story that will get fans to pay money to see the fight. In practice, that probably won't happen.

That's not to say a bout between McGregor and Ferguson, wouldn't sell PPV. He watched these guys when he was younger.

And, if these sort of super fights attract the same sort of coverage and hype, then it is almost a certainly that more of these bouts will take place.

Every UFC pay-per-view has a title fight nowadays.

Holloway has been the undisputed champion since UFC 212 and, at UFC 219, he will do what McGregor has never done before - defend his throne against a top contender.

He added: "The guys at 2K do an incredible job, the graphics are amazing, but they make my bum bigger than it actually is". Like, he's an exciting fighter so it will be an exciting fight.

There is of course the possibility of rescheduling a fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov - for the fourth time. You can see where he's coming from considering the Stockton native has already beat up McGregor and choked him out then took him to the brink in the rematch.

That's an unprecedented level of leverage over the UFC for a single fighter.

McGregor has only fought once in 2017, a tenth round loss to Floyd Mayweather.

There's a UFC event next weekend.

"You know, he's tough as well". I know Donald Cerrone is taking on Darren Till, but I didn't know the co-main event until I looked it up.
