UFC president Dana White shoots down McGregor rumor

Opinion: A Case For Tony Ferguson vs. Max Holloway

And Balor wants an all-Ireland tag team bout with the 29-year-old, in what could be a superstar match-up. In 2008 WWE superstar Brock Lesnar signed with the UFC having headlined at Wrestlemania just four years prior.

'But Tony can weather the storm. The Notorious One would carry the load during that part of the process while Balor took over once the bell rang.

McGregor's most likely next opponent is the UFC's interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson, who called McGregor out after defeating Kevin Lee with a third-round triangle choke submission at UFC 216 on Saturday night.

What was Conor McGregor's pay-out from the Floyd Mayweather super fight you may ask?

"I've been a fan of the series for a long time".

While Ferguson has shown off some impressive kickboxing skills in past matchups with fighters such as Rafael dos Anjos, Roddy feels like he would be facing a completely different kind of animal going up against McGregor. The promotion is increasingly beholden to him rather than the other way around.

- UFC's Dana White says that rumors that Conor McGregor is going to fight in the WWE's April 2018 WrestleMania are not true. He's clearly a world-class fighter, but pro wrestling will be alien territory for him.

There is of course the possibility of rescheduling a fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov - for the fourth time. He didn't even say 'good fight' on Twitter. So there is no question that is going to happen. Not only has Ferguson earned the shot; the new interim champion is a hellaciously wild, fun fighter who would make a compelling foe for McGregor.

That is a figure that the lightweight UFC champion would never have got if he stayed in MMA, that's for sure. He is weighing his options.

"You know, there's plenty of holes in there in Ferguson's game and I think we can capitalize and land any shots that we need to land".

A 165-pound division sounds great for guys who are at 185-pounds, think they'd be too small for 170-pounds, but can't safely cut 30 pounds. He's an entertainer, for sure. He could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show.

Following the comments, former WWE champion Ric Flair called out McGregor on social media.

In short, a fight between the two men should promise to be an absolute war, with each man trying to prove his creativity and adaptability on the feet superior.

In 2017, we've seen multiple instances where a bad weight cut has led to a fight being postponed or canceled.
