Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Dustin Poirier’s agreement dispute difficulties keep on. For every a report from ESPN, his prepared bout with Conor McGregor is all but set. The only lingering difficulty comes from “The Diamond” himself, who is even now not satisfied with his UFC deal. As a end result, the McGregor fight is at chance … for Poirier.
For every Ariel Helwani’s resources, UFC is willing to glimpse at other alternatives. Their major decision in substitute would be Justin Gaethje, even though it is considered McGregor might not be interested right after the “sh*t human, father, and husband” reviews from “The Spotlight.” Even if that initially selection is unavailable, UFC is keen to search additional down the rankings if necessary.
It is an unlucky circumstance. Dustin Poirier has lived up to his “pain in full” mantra over the several years, routinely digging deep to win blood-and-guts battles, before and right after his interim title acquire. “The Diamond” deserves his pay out raise, and a second bout with McGregor can make a ton of sense. It’s the perfect battle to reintroduce “Notorious” to the Lightweight title image, the variety of acquire that could legitimately generate him a earth title (or at least title shot).
But, it may well not materialize, even while there’s not a far better struggle to make. Ideally, negotiations get the job done out, and the significant-profile fight transpires on January 23.
This speech from Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will surely help you crush the new week (NSFW warning).
Further more determination and tips from Georges St. Pierre … though it’s a lot less amusing.
This weekend’s UFC card losing the a person struggle that really mattered is a huge bummer, but Paul Felder stepping up is a heroic second.
I’ll go forward and presume that the over assertion was directed at me. We do have other options & we will not just abandon them out of the blue. Also, generating pounds this fast is unachievable this shortly soon after final lower. For the file…I was never ever provided this combat. @RdosAnjosMMA
