Conor McGregor deletes ‘F—k yous all’ tweet referencing his actions at Bellator 187

1 Comment

Don’t expect any remorse from Conor McGregor for his behavior at Bellator 187.

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor became the star of Bellator 187 in his home country of Ireland, as he found himself in a heated confrontation with referee Marc Goddard in the immediate aftermath of Charlie Ward’s knockout win vs. John Redmond.

McGregor, who attended the Bellator card as a spectator, stormed into the cage to celebrate with Ward, a longtime friend and teammate of his, but scenes turned chaotic when Conor shoved Goddard, who wanted McGregor out of the cage and hadn’t even had the chance to check on the badly hurt Redmond. As if that wasn’t enough, McGregor was seen slapping a Bellator official whilst on top of the cage, so it was quite the contentious Friday evening for the biggest star in MMA.

Association of Boxing Commissions president Mike Mazzulli wrote a statement admonishing McGregor for his behavior, and there is a significant possibility that McGregor will face some form of punishment.

McGregor, who has called Goddard “a rat” and has steadily built up a history with him, took to Twitter to address his actions from Friday, and then just as quickly deleted the tweet, which wrote:

“Bloke KO’d on the floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fights not over Conor. That’s when I lost it. F–k yous all.”

A screenshot of the tweet can be found here.

Ward’s KO of Redmond occurred at the 4:59 of round 1, with a right hand that knocked Redmond down, then one follow-up punch led to Goddard’s intervention.

Meanwhile, McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh had this to say about Conor’s behavior.

Demian Maia issues statement following loss to Colby Covington

1 Comment

Demian Maia suffered back-to-back losses for the first time since 2014, but is already looking forward to his next fights inside the Octagon.

Hours after losing a unanimous decision to Colby Covington in the co-main event of UFC Sao Paulo at the Ibirapuera gymnasium, Maia posted a statement on his social media, giving props to Covington while admitting a few mistakes he has done in the welterweight bout.

"I would like to thank everyone’s support in one more step in my path,” Maia wrote. "The big lesson in sports is knowing that competing always beings lessons, and we have to be grateful in victory and in defeat for the leaning. I did my best, made a few mistakes and got a little excited, which might have hampered the execution of my strategy, but that doesn’t take the merit away from my opponent, who deserved the victory, and I leave with my head held high, knowing that I have done the best I could, and I move forward onto the next step of the journey. Thank you all!"

Maia (25-8) dropped to 10-4 since cutting down to 170 pounds in 2012, but said after the bout that he’s not considering to retire. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace has one fight left in his deal with the UFC.

Dana White Calls Michael Bisping's Assault Accuser a 'F--king P---y'

1 Comment

UFC President Dana White responded Thursday to the man who filed a lawsuit against middleweight champion Michael Bisping over an alleged assault at a gym in Anaheim, California. 

"I'm sure it's that typical f--king p---y who opens his mouth at the f--king gym, and then Bisping goes over andI don't know what Bisping did to him, but now he wants to f--king sue Bispingshould have shut your f--king face in the first place," White said on the RQMS Podcast (warning: post contains profanity). 

"You're a clown. Guys like that are a f--king embarrassment."

TMZ Sports first reported Tuesday that Bisping was being sued by Antonio Georgakopoulos, who alleged that he was involved in a verbal and physical altercation with the fighter after he took his weights at the gym without asking. 

Citing a copy of the lawsuit, TMZ reported Georgakopoulos alleged that Bisping "grabbed him by the throat and began to squeezecutting off oxygen."

TMZ later spoke to the Anaheim Police Department and confirmed Bisping was not arrested and that the City Attorney's Office opted not to press charges due to a lack of evidence. 

"Total bollocks," Bisping said of the allegations Thursday, according to MMA Fighting's Marc Raimondi. "There's your comment."

Bisping, 38, will headline UFC 217 on Nov. 4 when he puts his middleweight belt on the line against Georges St-Pierre.

Bisping to GSP: ‘When you wrestle, that’s you trying to hide from fighting’

1 Comment

Michael Bisping rips on Georges St-Pierre’s fighting style during the pre-fight presser in Toronto on Friday.

The heat is building between UFC 217 headliners Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre. After their pre-fight press conference in Toronto on Friday, the two men got into a verbal altercation backstage, showing a usually subdued St-Pierre being a lot more aggressive.

Their demeanor towards each other during the actual presser was a lot less intense, albeit still hostile. During one of the moments, Bisping took shots at St-Pierre’s fighting style.

“You’re going to waste all your energy trying to take me down,” Bisping said (via MMA Fighting). “See, when you wrestle, that’s you trying to hide from fighting. I don’t hide from fighting. And Georges is going to have to fight me.”

“You know, I tried watching his fights, I fall asleep all the time. I swear to God, I do. I sit there, I have a coffee, which is a stimulant to keep me awake and I still can’t do it. I fall asleep every time.”

St-Pierre did promise to “put everything he has” into scoring a finish over Bisping, especially since he is coming into the fight as the underdog with something to prove. But for the champion, he is not expecting anything he has not seen before, and is confident that he will end up scoring the knockout finish.

“Listen, here’s the thing. I don’t doubt you’ve been working on other things because that’s what we do as martial artists, but at the end of the day you can’t reinvent the wheel,” Bisping said. “The fundamentals are still the same, the same kicks, the same punches, the same submissions. What? Have you invented a new submission I’ve never seen before? A kick I’ve never seen? What exactly are you going to do?

“You’re going to jab, jab, double leg, bore everybody to sleep. I, on the other side, am going to try and knock you out.”

UFC 217 takes place on November 4th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
