All I can say is Max is a gangster.
Nurmagomedov (25-0-0) has already earned nine wins in UFC competition, last defeating Edson Barboza by decision at UFC 219. "I don't want to fight for the money". I had to call Tyler Minton [who is part of the Lockhart & Leith team], who worked with Max for his last fight, and we were running numbers back and forth, and seeing where he previously was fight week. He continued, "If UFC has a problem, it's UFC's problem", Nurmagomedov said. UFC's name is UFC. I care about my legacy. "I would not do this".
"I do know that his time as a 145er was probably going to be on the clock soon, but he had full intentions to defend it two or three more times before he made any moves", Butler-Au said. I'm going to show you guys how I'm tough.' Of course I am tough, but I am smart, too. As each day passed before that, the excitement continued to grow as it felt like the fight could finally become a reality, especially since their previous encounter fell through one day before their highly anticipated clash at UFC 209.
Nurmagomedov is grateful he's still competing for the title belt at UFC 223, because that's what's most important to him.
Alton Sterling: No Charges Against Officers
Two cellphone videos of the shooting quickly spread on social media, leading to protests at which almost 200 people were arrested. After meeting with Landry, members of Sterling's family expressed deep sadness and outrage, but little surprise at the decision.
"I don't think Conor McGregor could make the weight on six days' notice".
BOOM! We got Khabib vs The Champ Max Holloway for the 155lb title this Saturday in Brooklyn New York! I've got business to handle at 145, but I said when the UFC called, I'm one call away. When asked if he would be willing to book the fight a fifth time, White responded, "Hell no". But now, he is on different territory, different weight class, different animals.
The UFC will start to heavily promote its UFC 223 pay-per-view from next week with press conferences, media appearances, open work-outs and its popular YouTube Embedded series.
