Conor McGregor's shot at third belt boosted by former foe

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

"He's been doing them since college".

While a couple of those victories were lackluster, Woodley still found a way to retain his championship, and in this sport that's what counts when all is said an done. I don't want to sit back and say, 'Oh, I want to sit and wait to see what happens with this fight.' I'm the champion.

"If it wasn't for his loud mouth and his ability to talk trash to his opponents and people outside of his weight class and just pretty much anybody that picks a bone with him, [he still] backs it up", Waterson said.

That has created a new atmosphere around the England squad, according to Welbeck, and they are relishing the chance to impress on the worldwide stage.


"That's when I want to fight". When I'm ready to fight, now it's time to fight.

And the names being bandied about?

Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor was supposed to headline last month's UFC 224, but it did not push through as "something came up". The bout goes down on Saturday at UFC 225 in Chicago and ahead of it Covington has been dissing Dos Anjos and anyone else within shouting distance.

Through it all, Mr Trump appeared to revel in fanning the flames of a culture war which he believes revs up his political base. Within minutes of when the White House announced their rescinding of the Eagles invitation to the White House Rep.


UFC 224 took place in Brazil, and any legal issues McGregor is going through could easily preclude him from traveling overseas to fight. "I want to fight". I can't be one year without fighting - I need to keep my rhythm. Dos Anjos barely catches Covington with a knee strike before getting taken down, Dos Anjos gets up and separates from Covington. McGregor's next fight will have to take place after his case is adjudicated; his next court date is June 14.

Colby Covington is one of the most controversial fighters in the UFC.

Woodley hasn't fought in almost a year. Earlier, he was forced to bail on his lightweight title defense against former featherweight champion Conor McGregor in UFC 196 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. Whittaker took the first bout between the two with a unanimous decision at UFC 213 last July.

Ghana has said it will dissolve its national football association after Kwesi Nyantakyi was filmed apparently accepting a "cash gift".


"I'm not really concerned with who's ready, who's next", Woodley said. Whoever they got for me to fight at this time, come get this work. But if a guy's a No. 1 contender, you can't try to avoid him. With welterweight champ Tyron Woodley on the shelf since July of a year ago he claims he and RDA are fighting for the "real belt". He looks renewed in his quest for another UFC Title, and is riding a 3 fight win streak since losing to Tony Ferguson. "And I'm sure I'm going to win, and I'll fight (Woodley) later on".
