Been seeing a lot of negativity surrounding this man today. Say what you will about his career but he changed the game for the UFC to the point where we can now watch it on ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports entertainment. The UFC is where it is today because of what Conor McGregor has done for the company, and the negativity that has come about on social media today is unfair. He came from nothing to accomplish the greatest achievements in his sport, and did it his way. He may not be the greatest fighter of all time, but there is no doubt that he’s one of the most important. Thank you @thenotoriousmma . . . And I do fully expect to see Conor McGregor back in the octagon again one day, maybe sooner rather than later.
“The Menace” Michael Johnson (@menace155) returns to the octagon this Saturday as he takes on Josh Emmett (@joshemmettufc) at UFC Philadelphia! Will he walk out with another KO victory on Saturday?
Next on the UFC docket is a matchup of two of the lightweight division’s best strikers, as Edson Barboza (@edsonbarbozajr) and Justin Gaethje (@justin gaethje) look to keep the streak of extremely entertaining UFC Fight Nights on ESPN going in Philadelphia! . . Who comes out on top in this battle that’s bound to become an absolute bloodbath?
Anthony “Showtime” Pettis (@showtimepettis) continued to live up to his nickname in his first welterweight fight in the UFC with a shocking knockout of Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson at UFC Nashville! . . Pettis vs. RDA rematch at 170 next? Whats next for Wonderboy?
Good Lord! Jorge Masvidal (@gamebredfighter) knocks Darren Till out cold in the second round to put his name right back in the title conversation! Who’s next for Gamebred?
Which eye from #UFCLondon was worse? 🤕
Who else can’t wait for this walkout at UFC London? Does Till do what he predicted and knock out Jorge Masvidal in the first round Saturday night?
Is it finally time for the Conor McGregor vs. Tyron Woodley superfight? #UFC240
Junior Dos Santos (@junior cigano) knocks out Derrick Lewis in the 2nd round to put his name right back into the heavyweight title conversation! . . We think JDS vs. Ngannou should be next. What do you think?
Anthony Smith (@lionheartasmith) gets right back into the octagon June 1 in Stockholm against Alexander Gustafsson (@alexthemauler)! Does the winner of this fight get right back to another title shot?
It’s confirmed! Former featherweight champ Jose Aldo will fight up and comer Alex Volkanovski at UFC 237 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! Aldo recently defeated Renato Moicano by TKO, while Volkanovski’s last fight was also a TKO victory over Chad Mendes!
Which one of these talented light heavyweight contenders deserves the next shot at Jon “Bones” Jones? . Dana White said after UFC 235 that he wants to see Jones vs. Santos next. If that’s the case I personally would love to see Johnny Walker vs. Anthony Smith (@lionheartasmith) next for the young phenom!
AND STILL!!! Jon Jones retains his light heavyweight belt with a decision victory over Anthony “Lionheart” Smith! Who’s the next challenger for Jonny Bones?
AND NEW!!! Kamaru Usman (@usman84kg) dominates Tyron Woodley for 5 straight rounds to earn the decision victory and the welterweight belt! Should Usman fight Colby Covington (@colbycovmma) next or should he and Woodley run it back?
Ben Askren defeats Robbie Lawler in his UFC debut via 1st round submission in a controversial stoppage by Herb Dean. Robbie was absolutely unloading on Askren and had him hurt early in the round! What did you think of the stoppage? Who’s next for Askren?
Pedro Munhoz (@pedromunhozmma) knocked out former champ Cody Garbrandt in the closing seconds of the first round in an absolute slugfest! Who’s next for Munhoz in a crowded bantamweight division, and what’s next for “No Love” after a 3rd straight loss via KO?
JOHNNY WALKER!!! What a KO by @johnnywalkerufc, finishing Misha Cirkunov in 36 seconds with a perfectly timed knee and vicious ground and pound! Who’s next for Johnny after yet another dominant win? . . (He also dislocated his shoulder doing the worm celebration after the KO 🤣)
