Dana White: Conor McGregor Not an Option for GSP if He Decides to Return to UFC

Tristar Gym trainer Firas Zahabi recently said that it would take a ”big, exciting fight" to lure Georges St. Pierre back into the Octagon while hinting that one such potential bout could include UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor . Not so fast, says UFC President Dana White. "He ain't fighting Conor McGregor," White told . "If he wants to come back, [UFC welterweight champion] Tyron Woodley or [middleweight champion] Robert Whittaker is waiting for him. They're both waiting, if Georges wants to come back.” Regarded as the greatest welterweight champion of all-time, St. Pierre returned from a four-year hiatus to capture the middleweight crown with a third-round submission of Michael Bisping at UFC 217 on Nov. 4. He then vacated the crown approximately one month later while revealing health issues due to ulcerative colitis. Interim 185-pound titlist Whittaker was installed as the undisputed champion and will defend the belt against Luke Rockhold in the UFC 221 main event. Both St. Pierre and White confirmed that the fighter was contractually obligated to defend the middleweight title if he was victorious at UFC 217.

Former UFC Title Challenger, Strikeforce Champ Nate Marquardt Announces Retirement

After 56 professional mixed martial arts bouts, Nate Marquardt is calling it a career. The former Strikeforce champion and King of Pancrase announced his retirement on his website on Thursday. Marquardt last appeared at UFC Fight Night 120, where he suffered his third consecutive defeat inside the Octagon at the hands of Cezar Ferreira . Marquardt is 38 years old. “I have had many accomplishments and victories as well as many trials and upsets in my career,” Marquardt wrote. “I have won [four] world titles and I have subsequently lost three of them. I have had many winning and losing streaks. I have battled chronic injuries and had [six] surgeries. I have learned that I can trust God in every situation and need to put him first. After 22 years as an athlete in the sport of mixed martial arts, I believe God is calling me in another direction.” Marquardt had fallen on hard times in recent years, winning just three of his 12 fights since 2013. However, the Colorado native enjoyed a long and successful career that began in 1999 and included wins over the likes of Yves Edwards , Shonie Carter , Kazuo Misaki , Martin Kampmann , Demian Maia , Rousimar Palhares and Tyron Woodley , to name a few.

Preview: UFC 219 ‘Cyborg vs. Holm’ - Cyborg vs. Holm

The Endeavor-led Ultimate Fighting Championship puts its inaugural year in the books with UFC 219 on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It is far from the best event the company has waged in its fraught first year, yet somehow seems appropriate, for better and for worse. The UFC is still the premiere ticket in MMA, and whether or not it can be a major pay-per-view success, UFC 219 is still headlined by a women’s featherweight title fight with immediate and historic resonance, as Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino takes on former UFC bantamweight titleholder and boxing world champion Holly Holm . The fact alone that the Brazilian is merely a -360 favorite as I write this is a reminder that this fight feels like something different, as “Cyborg” has spent nearly 13 years undefeated while thrashing her opposition and routinely coming in as a -1000 favorite and often double that. At the same time, it is a bout marred by its very circumstance. Germaine de Randamie was crowned the inaugural UFC women’s featherweight champion just 10 months ago, when she beat … Holm. Where was Justino? Fighting to get a retroactive therapeutic use exemption -- which she was eventually granted -- after testing positive for the banned diuretic spironolactone, at which point de Randamie called her a PED cheat and was stripped of her title, preferring to focus on rehabbing her hand and her job as a police officer in her native Netherlands.

Debets: The UFC Screwed Robert Whittaker

So there you have it . After one solitary month, Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight titleholder Georges St. Pierre is no more, relinquishing the belt he won at UFC 217 and elevating interim titlist Robert Whittaker to the position of undisputed champion. GSP now holds records for the second longest title reign ever (2,064 days), which he achieved at welterweight from 2008 to 2013, and the shortest ever title reign, with 33 days at middleweight. Surprised? UFC President Dana White isn’t. For all the BS White spewed about Whittaker being “next in line” for GSP should he emerge with the title, he admitted last week that he “expected” St. Pierre to vacate rather than defend his belt against the murderer’s row of contenders at 185 pounds . What does that mean? Effectively, that the 185-pound weight class was put on hold for 18 months for no other reason than for the UFC to make a boatload of cash in GSP’s return bout. Never mind that the logjam drove at least one top-five middleweight to another organization ; or that it devalued the middleweight belt to the point where it was little more than a stage prop rather than a symbol demarcating its holder as the undisputed best fighter of the weight class; or that it completely screwed over one of the most promising stars of the WME-era in Australia’s “Bobby Knuckles.

Dana White hopes Conor McGregor returns to UFC in summer 2018

With Conor McGregor ’s year-end return off the table, UFC President Dana White is shifting his attention to another high season for pay-per-view business.

Arraignment Set in Felony Case Against UFC Title Challenger Volkan Oezdemir

Volkan Oezdemir is scheduled to appear in Florida court a little more than a week before he challenges Daniel Cormier for the light heavyweight title at UFC 220 . According to court records, Oezdemir has an arraignment in Broward County Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court on Jan. 9 at 9 a.m. for a charge of felony battery causing great bodily harm, a second-degree felony. Oezdemir allegedly knocked a man unconscious outside a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., bar on Aug. 12. The charge was originally aggravated battery causing great bodily harm or disability, which was a second-degree felony. On Jan. 20, 11 days after he is to appear in court, Oezdemir will square off against Cormier in the UFC 220 co-main event at TD Garden in Boston. The Switzerland native was initially arrested on Nov. 19 and posted a $10,000 bond. The alleged victim, Kevin Cohen, said that he was struck by Oezdemir and knocked unconscious for 14 minutes. Cohen was then transported to a hospital for multiple lacerations and concussion symptoms. Cohen exited the bar to check on another friend, Sergio Sandoval, who had also been allegedly knocked unconscious.

Holly Holm: 'I Think Anybody's Beatable and That Includes Cris Cyborg' |

“I think she does have this aura about her — oh she’s unbeatable — but I think one of the things people don’t realize is the caliber of opponents, I’m not saying they haven’t been somewhat tough, but I feel like I’ve really faced a lot of the top girls and I’ve been in more challenging fights in my entire career, whether it be boxing or MMA,” Holm said when speaking to MMAWeekly. “I feel like I’ve faced a little more of that diversity and I’ve faced people who’ve had a little more ring experience. I’ve faced people that have had a lot of different styles, whether it be offensively or defensively. I know that she knows this.

Dana White Wants to ‘Hopefully’ Get Conor McGregor Back in the UFC This Summer

Dana White still has some optimism that Conor McGregor will eventually return to the Octagon, “hopefully” by the summer of 2018. “I haven’t talked to Conor about fighting,” White said on ESPN’s SportsCenter Thursday. “We talked about other things. Like I said before, he made a lot of money and I’m sure him and his family had an amazing Christmas. Let’s get through the holidays and hopefully he starts to get the itch to come back and hopefully we can get him back this summer.” That is a slightly different stance than White took earlier this year, when he speculated that McGregor ”might never fight again.” The Irish superstar is coming off a career-best payday believed to be in the neighborhood of $100 million for boxing Floyd Mayweather on Aug. 26. He hasn’t competed in the UFC since November 2016. White believes that money won’t be the main issue when it comes to finalizing any kind of negotiations with McGregor. “Money is always a factor but we’ve never had a problem getting a deal done with Conor McGregor . I don’t see that being a problem,” White said.

“They don’t give the opportunity. Guess what? All of your got the opportunity to get to where you’re at [in the rankings]. That’s why you’re where you’re at, so give me a chance. If I lose … that’s what all these guys want to talk crap about because I lost to Beneil Dariush. Beneil Dariush is  good … He’s a good-ass fighter. Yeah, I took a loss, but guess what? Every one of these guys in the top 15 have more losses in the UFC than me. The only guy that’s ranked above me that has less losses in the UFC than I do is Justin Gaethje, because he’s [only lost once]. He’s the only one. All the other guys have lost more fights than I’ve lost in the UFC. How the fuck am I going to get an opportunity with the rank that I have? You know?”

Dana White Goes Off on 'Hater' Fans Who Want Conor McGregor Stripped |

On a mission to clear that up, White put his foot down and said that if McGregor does return, he’ll be defending his title against Tony Ferguson. Title defense criticisms have been what man fans target, as well as Ferguson in his ‘defend or vacate’ campaign, but White recently has said those critiques are completely overblown.
