Conor McGregor drops a hint over his next fight

has yet again suggested his next fight will take place inside the Octagon.

“I think a true fight is what I want to do next. A real fight, what’s a real fight? MMA next.”

On Sunday night, ‘The Notorious’ posted a picture of him grappling at SBG Ireland to his official Instagram page.

Khabib Nurmagomedov eyeing a spring fight with Tony Ferguson

Khabib Nurmagomedov is adamant he will fight Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight title in the spring. 

“In the lightweight division, the most important fight is me and Tony,” the Dagestan native told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.

“I have to fight with Tony. This weight division is a little bit weird right now, but I’m going to change this at the end of the year. 

“In March or April, I’m going to fight Tony for the title.”

Yoel Romero accuses Luke Rockhold of ducking him

Yoel Romero has accused Luke Rockhold of turning down a fight with him in order to take on Robert Whittaker. 

“I don’t understand why he said no. I don’t understand. Maybe he had a strategy in the mind,” Romero said during an appearance on The MMA Hour.

“He say, ‘No I wont fight Yoel, I will fight somebody easy.’ Respect to David Branch, but that’s the way he thinks, you know? 

“That’s Luke’s mentality, ‘I want a more easy fight, win and Yoel Romero lose his last fight.’”
