Nurmagomedov to McGregor: "Beg Me!"

Nurmagomedov to McGregor:

To defend the belt he was ready for any enemy, except for Ferguson, as, according to Nurmagomedov, he didn't deserve a title fight with Habib. That contest felt like the winner would be on to bigger and better things so Chiesa will still be somewhat bitter about the controversial loss, as before this he was 7-2 in his UFC career and instead this fight is mostly remembered for that finish and his losing his cool at Kevin Lee referring to his mother at a press conference to promote it.

Now truth be told, Nurmagomedov was forced out of his fight with Ferguson back at UFC 209 due to a brutal weight cut that put him in the hospital.

The most chaotic week in UFC history ended with a very smooth fight in the main card of UFC 223.

It has been a wild ride for the Russian grappler and he has finally reached the top of the lightweight mountain. And I said that this fight won't happen again this time around.

Holloway, the reigning UFC featherweight champion, stepped in as a late replacement for interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson, accepting the fight on just six days' notice.

In the co-main event, Rose Namajunas proved she's a true champion and that her upset victory over Joanna Jedrzejczyk in November was no fluke, as she defended her title and earned a unanimous decision in their anticipated rematch.

It's been reported by Dave Meltzer that GSP's fight with Bisping at UFC 217 brought in an estimated 875,000 pay-per-view buys. Now UFC has champion, and this champion wants to defend his title.

"I feel UFC and Khabib got unfinished business before I try to make a step in here to go for the 155 title", St-Pierre said. He want to become lightweight champion?

Subsequent to this the weakness Pettis does have in his propensity to eat leg kicks is largely irrelevant. It's a big honor for Russia, it's a big honor for the Republic of Dagestan. "He have to fight with me".

No, I told him to submit Iaquinta as soon as he gets the chance, but at the same time not to lose a single round, something we are always looking for.

Conor Mcgregor is seen leaving the 78th Precinct in Brooklyn Friday in New York City.

The McGregor incident is what this week will be remembered for. Chiesa's striking on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired.

Even UFC president Dana White admitted his brain was scrambled and he was running on fumes when he spoke at his post-fight media availability early Sunday morning. We pride ourselves in taking a deeper look into the fighter, and understanding what makes them tick. Georges St-Pierre, Conor McGregor...

The 29-year-old called for former two-weight belt holder Georges St Pierre next, although, divisive Irishman McGregor lurks in the background.

"To be the man, you beat the man", White said. Nurmagomedov's belt, that's the one.
