Brad Pickett aiming for Michael McDonald-like foe after UFC on FUEL TV 9 win
STOCKHOLM – When perusing his division's rankings, Brad Pickett often finds his opponent's name further down the list from his own. However, he hopes it's a trend that soon ends.

UFC Victory Under His Belt, Popular Irishman Conor McGregor is Now Shipping Up to Boston
Irishman Conor McGregor went from collecting a little less than $250 per week to being paid thousands for fighting in the UFC, and now he’s shipping up to Boston. UFC president Dana White – who prior to a recent trip to Ireland knew little of McGregor – said the Irishman went a long way towards securing a spot on the UFC’s next trip to Boston, which kicks off the launch of Fox Sports 1 on Aug. 17. McGregor’s knockout of Marcus Brimage at 1:07 of their fight in Sweden on Saturday certainly won his UFC boss over. “The answer is yes,” answered White, prior to the question even being posed. “You’re gonna ask if we’re gonna put McGregor on (the Boston) card...

From welfare to custom suits, Conor McGregor says UFC win biggest of career
While it's already being praised as one of the most impressive UFC debuts in recent memory, Conor McGregor's UFC on FUEL TV 9 win didn't just boost his notoriety in the sport: It's also going to get him off welfare. "Just last week I was collecting the social welfare," McGregor (13-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) said at Saturday's UFC on FUEL TV 9 post-event press conference. "I was in there saying to them, 'I don't know what's going to happen. I'm signed to the UFC. I don't know. Blah, blah, blah.' Now I supposed I'm just going to have to tell them, 'F--k off!'"
