Eddie Alvarez gives his side of TUF 26 beef with ‘head case’ Lauren Murphy
(https:)
n the aired episodes of The Ultimate Fighter 26, it seemed like the beef between Eddie Alvarez and Lauren Murphy began the day after Murphy lost her first-round fight. Murphy, who was on Alvarez’s team on the show, didn’t come to the morning practice following her loss to Nicco Montaño. Alvarez chastised Murphy for that and for having a poor attitude in an episode that aired last month. That, however, was not where the tensions began, Alvarez said Thursday on Sirius XM’s MMA Tonight. The former UFC lightweight champion said Murphy began “conspiring” against her teammates from early on in the competition, including telling a coach the team didn’t mind if Sijara Eubanks fought first because she was off weight and asking Alvarez for tips about beating teammate Barb Honchak.

Tony Ferguson responds to Conor McGregor with perfect(ly odd) 'Grand Theft Auto' video
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor broke his silence on interim title holder Tony Ferguson (we think) when he tweeted a picture Friday casting himself as Tony Montana from “Scarface” – using the style of the “Grand Theft Auto” video game – with the simple caption: “Tony.” As expected, the Tony we believe McGregor was calling out had a rather quick response in the form of a “Grand Theft Auto”-inspired video of sorts. I say “of sorts” because … well, just take a look:

USADA suspends Jesse Taylor one year for positive drug test for clomiphene
(https:)
From comeback story to drug suspension in three months. USADA suspended Jesse Taylor one year for testing positive for anti-estrogen agent clomiphene in an out-of-competition drug test, the UFC’s anti-doping partner announced Friday. The failed drug test stemmed from a sample collected Aug. 22. Taylor was subsequently pulled from a UFC Sydney fight with Belal Muhammad in November. In the release, USADA stated that Taylor had accepted the suspension, which was the maximum for the prohibited substance. Clomiphene is not approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for use by males and “promotes the secretion of testosterone,” per USADA.
