Alvarez vows to put McGregor beating behind him at UFC 211

Alvarez vows to put McGregor beating behind him at UFC 211

"I've just got to do whatever the (expletive) I want to do. If we really do get it done in that time frame, then this thing could possibly happen", White said.

After almost two years of chatter, it appears we may be close to getting a definitive answer on whether or not McGregor and Mayweather are going to actually step into the ring.

"You guys just offered me that fight that you knew I wasn't gonna take so you can extend my contract, because it was nearly over", Diaz said. After the fight, which "Canelo" won by unanimous decision, it was announced that "Canelo" would be taking on middleweight kingpin Gennady Golovkin on September 16, 2017.

Diaz isn't interested in fighting for a belt which has only been introduced because of Conor McGregor's hiatus. And absolutely, there's going to be a point where I'm done.

McGregor and Mayweather have been flirting with this matchup for more than a year, but it appeared in recent months that the fight was actually going to come together. "This isn't what I do, this isn't my business, and I'm definitely going to walk away".

The former champ is now trying to let all of his career aspirations go when he fights, which he expects will paradoxically make him perform better. "His body can't take the damage", Poirier said.

Panthers sign first-round pick McCaffrey

Pentagon says it will arm Syrian Kurds, despite Turkey's objections
Both are likely to be needed if Kurdish troops are to successfully penetrate Raqqa, well fortified by Islamic State militants. A Turkish delegation briefly met with President Trump on Monday, according to a report in the Turkish Daily Sabah newspaper.

"I feel the worst when I disappoint, more when I disappoint myself - not you guys, not my fans, but I put my heart and soul into it".

As De La Hoya indicated, Mayweather has already fought Alvarez, winning a majority decision in 2013.

By the same token, Mayweather, who has been cautious in choosing his opponents, could well want no part of Golovkin, who has 33 knockouts in 37 fights.

In addition, Mayweather's main motivation for coming out of retirement, as repeatedly stated, is to make at least $100 million, and he likely sees McGregor as having achieved enough global renown to deliver that payday. He last defeated Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight championship at UFC 205, capping off another blockbuster year for the sport's biggest draw. "We have to get the right deal done, or it's not going to happen".

"They texted me about the Eddie Alvarez fight", Diaz said.
