Frankie Edgar’s manager, coach go off on ‘prostitute’ Conor McGregor’s latest comments
(https:)
Frankie Edgar’s team have flipped out about Conor McGregor’s latest comments. On Thursday, McGregor wrote on Instagram that he offered to fight Edgar on short notice at UFC 222 on March 3 when Max Holloway withdrew from the scheduled featherweight title fight. McGregor is the former featherweight champion and never lost the belt inside the cage. The UFC stripped him after he didn’t defend it and won the lightweight title. Edgar’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz blasted McGregor and the remarks on TMZ shortly later, saying McGregor had the chance to fight Edgar multiple times and didn’t take it. Abdel-Aziz said McGregor could have fought Edgar at UFC 189 in 2015 after Jose Aldo pulled out, but chose Chad Mendes instead. Mark Henry, Edgar’s striking coach, also blasted McGregor in an Instagram post, acknowledging the “The Notorious” as a great fighter, but basically telling him to keep Edgar’s name out of his mouth, because of the class individual and fighter Edgar has been for years. Henry said Abdel-Aziz asked about fighting McGregor when Holloway went down, but the UFC said it wouldn’t be possible.

Tito Ortiz ‘interested’ in Chuck Liddell fight: I don’t need to fight, but if Chuck needs to, I’ll give him a payday
(https:)
Last year, rumors began to stir that Chuck Liddell was looking to come out of retirement and make a return to MMA. Shortly afterwards, Liddell stoked those flames with an Instagram post of himself and Tito Ortiz squaring off, with the caption ‘Why not?’ That post got Ortiz to take a shot at Liddell over Twitter, claiming no interest in a third fight with his former foe and suddenly, there was real heat for a trilogy bout. Ortiz would later admit he acted out of turn with his reply but the groundwork seems to have been laid and now, Ortiz is having a change of heart. Speaking recently with TMZ Sports, Ortiz said that he has “a lot of interest” in a third fight with Liddell and that he pitched the idea to the UFC at the start of the year, but that the issue will be getting Liddell a license to fight.

Watch Anderson Silva twerk it hard in high heels and a bra

I don’t really know what the what is going on with Anderson Silva any more, and I’m starting to have a hard time believing his claims that everything “Is normal!” Silva’s always had an unusual sense of humor, and that’s what’s shining through in a new Instagram video he posted of himself dancing and staggering around in high heels and a bra

Dominick Cruz to ‘silly’ T.J. Dillashaw: ‘Stop going down and looking for little baby boys at 125’
(https:)
When Max Holloway pulled out of UFC 222, the UFC was left to scramble for a pay-per-view worthy main event that could headline on short notice, and their first choice was a bantamweight title rematch between T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt. Garbrandt was all for the idea but Dillashaw declined, saying he wouldn’t defend his belt on four weeks’ notice when he was instead pursuing a superfight with flyweight champion and pound-for-pound king, Demetrious Johnson. Now it appears that fight is in the works for this summer, and not everyone is happy about it, including former bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz. Speaking recently on MaxOut with Ed Mylett, Cruz showed some annoyance with the bantamweight title situation, suggesting that he should get to fight for the belt next and that Dillashaw wanted to take an “easy fight” instead of risk losing his title.

(https:)
Quinton Jackson wants to even the score with his longtime rival Wanderlei Silva, and “The Axe Murderer” is open to fighting him a fourth time — with one condition. Silva, who beat “Rampage” twice by knockout inside the PRIDE ring, but lost their third fight under the UFC banner almost a decade ago, heard Jackson’s recent comments on The MMA Hour, promising “another ass whooping” against the Brazilian. Both Silva and “Rampage” are coming off decision losses to Chael Sonnen, and the Brazilian told Gazeta do Povo that he wants to have the home field advantage this time.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White loves to collect weapons. Like But aside from decorating his office, the Las Vegas-fight boss is also building a weapons room inside his nearby residence, which appears to be in dire need of a sword.

The coach also was there when Hall had a “slight heart attack” during his weight cut. Contrary to the opinion of UFC President Dana White, nothing about the situation was the result of lax preparation.
