ACL tear sidelines UFC featherweight Conor McGregor for 10 months
For now, all the talk was for naught for Conor McGregor, as will be his hope to fight on the UFC's Manchester card in October. McGregor suffered a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament, a strain to his medial collateral ligament and a meniscal tear of his posterior horn, according to UFC President Dana White, who late Thursday delivered the news to "FOX Sports Live." McGregor, White said, is expected to be on the shelf for upwards of 10 months. McGregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) suffered the injuries this past Saturday in his dominant win over Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26 at TD Garden in Boston.

Dana White: Wanderlei Silva Won't Fight Chael Sonnen, Wants PPV Points
All of Chael Sonnen's tough talk that Wanderlei Silva has been ducking him for years could arguably have some merit, based on the latest update on the potential grudge match by UFC President Dana White. White told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani that negotiations for this heavily anticipated matchup have come to a standstill since "The Axe Murderer" wants PPV points in order to fight Sonnen. "[Silva] said he won't fight him unless he gets PPV [points] so I guess he's gonna retire," White said to Helwani through a text message. When asked what he plans on doing with Sonnen next, White wrote, "we will figure it out."
