Conor McGregor Tries to Run it Back, Tells UFC to ‘Cut the Bulls**t’

The UFC has moved on from its UFC 200 spat with Conor McGregor. McGregor, however, hasn’t. He took another shot at the UFC brass on social media on Sunday, saying that “nobody gives a (expletive)” about the current slate of UFC 200 fights until Diaz vs. McGregor 2 is “settled.”

“Nobody gives a (expletive) about these other fights until this one is settled. Cut the (expletive). Run it back. #RealFight,” McGregor posted on Instagram, including a video clip from the fight.

Conor-McGregor-UFC-196-LA-Press-03After McGregor tweeted his retirement, pulled it back, but then tweeted again, declaring it was the UFC’s move after they had a blow up over McGregor’s refusal to fulfill what the UFC saw as his promotional duties, the UFC made its move, pulling him from the fight with Nate Diaz and replacing that fight with a Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones rematch.

Apparently, McGregor feels that wasn’t a worthy replacement and wants the UFC to “run it back,” and put his fight with Diaz back on the card.

It’s no wonder he would, as it has been speculated that he was guaranteed in the neighborhood of $10 million for the fight. That’s a lot of cheese to let sit by the wayside and get moldy.

UFC president Dana White has said multiple times now that the Diaz vs. McGregor 2 ship has sailed. The UFC replaced the fight with Cormier vs. Jones, end of story.

It appears too late for UFC 200. McGregor played his hand and the UFC called his bluff. The more he tries to regain his spot on the UFC 200 fight card, the more it appears McGregor is the one trying to run it back.

Nobody gives a fuck about these other fights until this one is settled. Cut the bullshit. Run it back. #RealFight

  • I think ufc 200 looks the way it’s suppose to now, 3 title fights topping the card. no one gives a sh#t about conor/diaz 2.

    • We’ll still get conor/Nate 2, just not at 200.

      They’ll have another card all to themselves.

  • No one cares about it McGregor you already got your ass beat I don’t need to see a better Diaz beat it again. Stop crying like a bitch that you are, its over.

  • Nobody give a $hit about these other fighters? I think Dana figured out that nobody cares about a rematch with Diaz. Conor is starting to look like Mir did over Brock. What happens when Diaz kicks his ass again? Nate already took your soul, little man. Go back to 145 and lose your belt.

  • He left out the clip from the fight where he tapped pretty quickly.

  • Hahaha. Let me see if I have this straight. He refused to promote a
    fight that he was guaranteed 10 Million dollars to fight on exactly the
    same card he says he wants to fight it on. He won’t fight at the weight
    class he is Champion of and won’t fight at the weight class he and Diaz
    should be fighting at and insists on fighting at 170 pounds.

    All
    this after getting his butt handed to him in the last fight against the
    same fighter at the same weight, but Diaz had 10 days to prepare for the
    fight.Hilarious.

  • === Simplified Translation ===
    McGwego: “Daddy I don’t want to play with them!”
    Daddy Dana: “Fine. Go to your room.”
    — LATER THAT DAY —
    McGwego: “Daddy I want to play now.”
    Daddy Dana: “No.”
    McGwego: “What?! You’re stupid!”
    Daddy Dana: “Go to your room.”
    END SCENE

  • I already saw Nate Diaz tap McGregor! McGregor’s ego was the only one that wanted a rematch!!

Bellator Confirms Hit-and-Run Incident that Cost Jordan Parsons His Leg

Bellator on Sunday confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons was the victim of a hit-and-run incident on Sunday in Delray Beach, Fla. The incident was first reported by MMAFighting.com.

“Bellator has been informed of a terrible accident that occurred last night involving featherweight fighter Jordan Parsons, who was struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run incident,” read Bellator’s statement to MMAWeekly.com. “We are still in the process of uncovering details and with his family’s consent, hope to have an update on his medical condition soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jordan and his family as he recovers.”

Jordan Parsons - BellatorAside from confirming the incident, Bellator also asked for help in gathering information for the Delray Beach Police, who are investigating.

“The hit-and-run occurred on Lindell Blvd. and South Federal Highway in Delray Beach, Florida.  Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Delray Beach Police Department at (561) 243-7800.”

According to MMAFighting’s Dave Doyle, Parsons was at the Delray Medical Center on Sunday afternoon in critical condition after having the “bottom half of his right leg amputated.”

The incident is likely to end Parsons’ very promising career. He currently sports a record of 11-2. Parsons fought his last three bouts under the Bellator banner, but was also a Driller Promotions and CFA champion prior to that.

Comment on Ronda Rousey: ‘I Need to Come Back, and I Need to Win’ (Video) by Daily

Ronda RouseyFormer UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey doesn’t like to lose, and hasn’t taken her first career loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 very well.

Rousey was recently included in Time Magazine’s Top 100 Influential people. “Rowdy” sat down with Tina Fey and revealed that she’s still grieving the loss of the unbeatable “cartoon” she once personified.

“I’m still grieving the person that could have won it all,” she emotionally said.

Rousey is determined to return to fighting better than ever and recapture her status as the queen of the 135-pound division.

“I need to come back, and I need to win,” she said.

  • She will win unless it is Holm or Cyborg, the result another face plant to lalla land. If RR can understand she has weak standup she may win it all again,

  • I have never lost respect or love for Ronda. I have never seen her as a cartoon. But I know she is correct about the trolls out there. And for all of you that wanted to see her lose, fix yourself.

    • what a great woman

    • Ronda lost all of my respect suicidal over 1 loss?

      • Exactly. Shows how mentally weak she is.

        • It’s not an issue of being mentally weak. It’s that she allowed fighting to be her end all. What she does can’t be who she is. That’;s the lesson she’s learning, I hope.

  • It helps that Misha Tate has the belt. That’s not a burn on Ronda, losing is really tough, and going after someone you’ve beat twice is a good way to get back on your feet.

  • Now she finds the courage to come back now that Tate holds the belt. Ronda is a big joke.

    • Exactly. Can’t beat Holm no matter what. Talks about suicide, etc. Such a weak mental midget she is.

    • you are liar, is cum in your ears are something, she made it clear that she is coming back at the end of the year way before holly lost, but you going to act like you didn’t hear her then right.

      • No she didn’t that was Dana telling everybody she will return at UFC 200
        then he changed it to November. But you’re such a passionate Ronda fan you
        don’t even know the facts. She was too embarrassed to even talk to anyone.
        And honestly that was Dana hoping she would make her return. If she was
        going to fight at end of the year then why was Ronda suicidal? That doesn’t
        sound like some1 who wants to fight jacka**.

  • So when Holm beats her a second time will she follow through on killing herself?

    • LOLOLOL You are soooooo funny Mark!! oh wow that was a good one! How did you come up with that?? Dude you should be getting paid for your thoughts! You are so awesome.
      Wait a minute… on second thought, why go through the motions of typing and posting that? It looks like you have a dog. Is it not giving you enough attention? Try tying a pork chop around your neck.

  • What would I tell a 14 year old girl?
    WATCH OUT FOR THE LEFT LEG HEAD KICK!!!!!

  • So now that Cyborg is officially in the UFC and RR doesn’t have the “im champion come down to my weight” EXCUSE anymore lets see it. Nut up and fight her finally.

Comment on UFC and Bellator Veteran Lavar Johnson Sentenced to Five Years for Domestic Violence by Gary Fredericks

Former UFC, Bellator, and Strikeforce fighter Lavar Johnson was sentenced on Friday to five years in prison for domestic violence.

A Fresno County judge Glenda Allen-Hill sentenced Johnson for the charges stemming from a domestic violence incident perpetrated on his girlfriend of seven years on Aug. 11, 2015, according to ABC 30 Action News in Fresno, Calif.

Johnson reportedly slammed his girlfriend against a wall and to the ground before kneeing her in the face and striking her multiple times with a closed fist.

HOT TOPIC  Conor McGregor Rumor Round-up: Russia and Poland Bidding Millions

Although Johnson’s attorney argued that Johnson’s actions were out of character and occurred when he was drunk and upset about his girlfriend allegedly tracking him with GPS, the judge did not relent. Johnson had hoped for a three-year sentence, but Judge Allen-Hill went with the five-year sentence due to the circumstances of the offense.

“It does appear there were times when Mr. Johnson could have stopped this offense,” said the judge in addressing the court. “That he could have not inflicted the amount of damage that he inflicted on his victim, but he did not.”

Lavar Johnson - WECDressed in a red prison jumpsuit, Johnson stated, “I’m sorry. I take full responsibility for my actions.”

Johnson made his professional fighting debut in the WEC (World Extreme Cagefighting) in January 2004. He competed under the Strikeforce banner from 2009 until 2011, before making his way to the UFC. He was released by the organization in 2013 after testing positive to elevated levels of testosterone following his UFC 157 loss to Brendan Schaub.

Johnson was quickly picked up by Bellator MMA and fought four times with the fight promotion. He was released by Bellator in March of 2015 after losing back-to-back bouts. He last competed at Bellator 123 in September 2014, losing to Cheick Kongo by rear-naked choke.

  • Well he obviously went too far, but his girlfriend must be as nutty as he is if she was with him for 7 years and didn’t know his temper.

    But the way the lib media will paint a picture this is proof that men are always beating on women for no reason.

    • Victim blaming. You really are a POS. You must be a Mayweather fan.

      • I dont consider everybody who gets their axx kicked a victim.
        But you’re a sissy b1tch who probably got your axx kicked your whole life and still think that its was everybody else picking on you for no reason.

        • Unless your girlfriend is beating you and big enough to do it, there is never a reason to physically assault a woman. Zero! People like you are the reason we have so many stupid laws. You think that beating a woman is warranted if “she asked for it”. You are a POS.

          • I didn’t say that what he did was right, but there was no reason for her to be in a relationship with someone who would do that for 7 years either. Sissy’s like you are the reason that we have stupid laws were you cant even argue with a chick or hold her down to stop her from hitting you without getting domestic violence charges pressed against you by the state.

            You’re a b1tch.

          • You are blaming her for him beating her. He never did this in seven years, so stop pretending like she should have know this was coming. Your parents would be so proud of you right now.

          • ” He never did this in seven years, so stop pretending like she should have know this was coming.”

            Well then explain to me how this all of a sudden happened?
            Did he suddenly go crazy?
            A sudden dual personality?
            Then he should be in a mental institution.

            How could she NOT know what he was capable of doing after 7 years, and how to instigate him into doing it.

          • You must be inner city black. That’s the only culture that is accepting to this kind of violence. You think rape is okay, if she asked for it. You think murder is ok, if they disrespected you. You think our legal system is messed up because so many black people are incarcerated, not because they committed crimes. Your mentality is a lot like sharia law, which is illegal in my country. F@ck a goat lately?

          • “You must be inner city black.”

            Is that who has been kicking your axx your whole life up detroit way?

            “You think rape is okay,… You think murder is ok,…”

            You’re pathetic.
            Those beatings the inner city Blacks put on you really distorted your brain.

            You might be the only real victim in this conversation.

          • You don’t deny any of my claim.

  • Johnson reportedly slammed his girlfriend against a wall and to the ground before kneeing her in the face and striking her multiple times with a closed fist.

    Way to go idiot 5 years should have been 20…. men hiting women what proof of maleness……..

    • But who put her in that situation?
      Did he grab her off the street in his beating up women van?
      Or did she choose to be in a relationship with him by her own free will.

      What he did was illegal and a crime, but I dont consider people who choose to walk down dark alleys to be entirely innocent victims.

  • ” He never did this in seven years,…”

    So if thats true, then this final incident really was him snapping beyond all reason and he’s NOT a habitual woman beater.

    The judge gave him 5 instead of 3 becasue she says “well you had a chance to stop”. Did he really?

    If he snapped that bad after never doing this before, was he in any reasonable control over himself or his actions at that point?

    So either he’s been doing it the whole time (there was a previous incident reported),
    and she should have seen danger and steered clear of it,
    of he hasn’t and he really just terribly snapped past his nature.

    So it sounds like either she’s not entirely the victim, or he’s not entirely the bad guy.

    • You are a supporter of violence against women. I get it, you’re muslim.

      • No, you’re just a lib sissy trying to play white knight for attention.

      • You should check some MGTOW video’s by Sandman on Youtube.

  • According to ABC 30, Johnson admitted he had beat his girlfriend in hopes of receiving a three-year sentence. The 38-year-old said he got upset because his girlfriend had been tracking his whereabouts with a GPS. Johnson also said that consuming large amounts of alcohol didn’t help matters.

    “I’m sorry,” he said. “I take full responsibility for my actions.”

    Johnson initially plead not guilty and was held on $120,000 bond. He never made bail and remained behind bars since his arrest. He was physically a shell of the massive slugger MMA fans had come to know as he stood in a red jumpsuit.

    Hope he dies in prison.

    • I hope you get accused of domestic violence and die in prison.
      And I hope that you didn’t even do it.

      You might even like it.
      They have a special place for sissy’s in that society.

      • I would have “street cred” by your standards if I did.

  • Now he can play connect 4 with War Machine.

  • Hopefully this piece of human excrement gets some prison justice. His MMA skills won’t matter when he gets a shank to the back of the neck after the other prisoners find out what he’s there for.

Andrew Whitney Laying Everything on the Line for Titan FC 38 Bout

While featherweight veteran Andrew “Beast” Whitney’s return to Titan FC last July didn’t come about quite as he had hoped it would, he nonetheless was happy to return to the promotion for the first time in three years.

On short notice, Whitney bested fellow vet William Joplin via unanimous decision, picking up his fourth win in six fights since initially exiting Titan FC in 2012.

“I took the fight on two weeks’ notice, so I wasn’t in the best of shape, but I was able to grind it out and get the win,” Whitney told MMAWeekly.com. “I knew he was going to be an extremely tough guy. I was ready to go 15 minutes. I was happy with my performance.”

Having spent much of the past couple years on smaller shows, Whitney welcomed the chance to step back up onto the national stage in Titan FC.

HOT TOPIC  Demetrius Johnson is Chasing Anderson Silva and UFC History

“I used to fight for Titan before when it was the first owners,” said Whitney. “It wasn’t on UFC Fight Pass, it was on national TV, so it’s good and I am excited any time I get a chance to fight. It’s a quality show and I’m looking to put a win under my belt to get me where I need to go.”

For his second fight back with Titan FC, Whitney (12-4) takes on British promotional newcomer Cory Tait (8-3) in a main card featherweight bout on Saturday in Miami.

“I’m confident and I’m the best Andrew I can be,” said Whitney. “I feel like if I go out there and stay on point, Corey won’t make it to the second round.

“I can’t focus on what Corey’s going to do. He’s good at stand-up and scrambling, and if I let him run his game plan on me, I won’t be successful, so I’ve got to focus on me right now and worry about what I’m going to do.”

Having been on this level before, Whitney seeks to use his latest opportunity to take his career even further and have his best year yet.

“I’m on a winning streak, and I’m going to put on a good show, and hopefully I’ll get a call (to the next level),” Whitney said. “I’m staying focused, staying on my grind, and I know this can be my year, so I have to put everything I have into it.”
