Conor McGregor wants $100M to box Floyd Mayweather [VIDEO]

conor-mcgregorConor McGregor seems open to boxing Floyd Mayweather, but he has very specific demands.

So, the year-long feud could be settled with a boxing match – as long as the UFC star gets $100 million.

“Tell Floyd and Showtime, I’m coming,” McGregor said while on stage in New York. “Tell him to go to them Showtime offices. I want $100 million cash to fight you under boxing rules cause he’s afraid of a real fight.”

On Tuesday, Mayweather took some shots at McGregor, adding fuel to the fire.

“Have he ever made $300 million in one night? Have he ever made $100 million in one night? Have he ever made $70 million in one night? So, as far as saying he’s the Floyd Mayweather of MMA, I mean, it’s okay to say it, but it’s not true,” Mayweather was quoted as saying.

“Never compare Conor McGregor to me,” he added. “That’s a total disrespect. Once again, I’m an elephant. An elephant don’t beef with ants. Elephant is so large, he don’t even see ants.”

UFC president Dana White was also eager to chime in with his two cents – and it’s clear he doesn’t think too highly of Mayweather.

“Conor McGregor … if he touches you, you go to sleep. Floyd puts people to sleep too, with his fighting style, not with his hands,” White told TMZ Sports Wednesday.

McGregor beat Eddie Alvarez this past weekend to snatch the lightweight belt, improving his  UFC record to 21–3.

Mayweather retired from boxing with a 49–0 record.

UFC 205 press conference: Conor McGregor goes after Eddie Alvarez with a chair [VIDEO]

UFC 205 Press ConferenceAh, there’s nothing quite like a UFC press conference.

On Thursday, the competitors who will duke it out at UFC 205 addressed the media.

At times, it looked more like a WWE event.

As Eddie Alvarez addressed the crowd, he took some potshots at Conor McGregor, who wasn’t there yet because he was running late – to the surprise of absolutely no one.

He then began to lash out at McGregor’s Irish fans, which led to Alvarez being booed so heavily that he left he stage. He would return a short time later and resumed with the insults.

Conor McGregor finally arrived donning a mink and apologized for being late – sort of.

Things got heated in a hurry, with McGregor almost going after Alvarez with a chair before Dana White intervened.

Jon Jones stripped of UFC title – again

jon-jonesJon Jones has once again been stripped of his title.

In the wake of his one year suspension by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), UFC has stripped Jones of his interim light heavyweight title.

This marks the second time in the past two years that Jones has been stripped of a title.

In 2015, the 29-year-old was stripped following a hit-and-run charge that stemmed from an accident that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm.

“Jon Jones has blown it in every way shape and form a guy with that much talent can blow it,” said UFC president Dana White. “Greatest talent ever and the biggest screw-up ever.”

Earlier this week, Jones was suspended for one year by the USADA after testing positive for clomiphene and letrozol prior to UFC 200.

The MMA star maintained that the failed test was due to his taking a tainted sexual-performance-enhancing pill prior to the July fight.

UFC star Jon Jones suspended for one year by USADA

jon-jonesThe United States Anti-Doping Agency announced on Monday that UFC star Jon Jones be suspended for one year for his anti-doping policy violation

The USADA says that on June 16, the 29-year-old fighter tested positive for two prohibited substances – clomiphene and letrozole.

The one-year suspension was the maximum allowable penalty USADA could give out. Jones will not be able to return to action until July 2017.

“On the evidence before the Panel, the Applicant is not a drug cheat,” the arbitrators wrote, according to CBS Sports. “He did not know that the tablet he took contained prohibited substances or that those substances had the capacity to enhance sporting performance.

“However by his imprudent use of what he pungently referred to as a ‘d— pill’ he has not only lost a year of his career but an estimated nine million dollars. This outcome which he admits to be a wake-up call for him should serve as a warning to all others who participate in the same sport.”
