  • Conor McGregor

The reigning UFC lightweight champion has been hinting at his return to the Octagon for quite some time, but just recently he was caught up in rumors about potential negotiations for a boxing match against Manny Pacquiao.

"If I want, I can go, I can come right back to the UFC, I can go fight in the Octagon". The promotion had hoped it could bring McGregor back as early as UFC 219 on December 30 in Las Vegas, but that focus shifted last month to a 2018 return.

"A real fight. MMA next", he added.

The MMA world has far from stood still in his absence: Tony Ferguson is now on a 10 fight winning streak in the lightweight division and holds the interim title, while Khabib Nurmagomedov is also waiting in the wings.

Madhukar Baburao Rahane's auto met with an accident on the National Highway, near Kagal bus station, severely injuring the woman. As media reports suggest, Ajinkya's father Madhukar has been granted bail by the Kohlapur Police after running down a woman.

On Saturday, TMZ Sports relayed comments McGregor made while out in New York City, and he threw a verbal jab at boxing in the process.

That's more than enough to be the second richest boxing bout in history, behind the 4.6 million viewers who paid to see Mayweather beat Manny Pacquiao in 2015. What's a real fight?

Did Washington DC's Football Team Change Its Name To 'Redhawks'?
For instance, the fake Washington Post page linked to the fake Redskins home page. The sites appear almost identical to the news sites aside from different urls.

The bout took the number two spot on the top pay-per-view buys list.

Dana White flat out denied the possibility of a fight between McGregor and Pacquiao, going as far as to threaten to sue the highly decorated former champion and "whoever is representing him".

Seasonal flu kills up to 650000 people worldwide every year
The county says flu vaccinations are recommended for anyone six months or older unless otherwise directed by a physician. Consequently, the majority of flu cases reported in the U.S. so far this season have been that H3N2 strain.

The total global revenue from the event including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution exceeds $600 million, which-along with Mayweather vs. Pacquiao- is among the largest for a single-day sporting event of all time. I earned their respect and put myself out there.
