Dana White: Win, lose or draw, Conor McGregor will fight Aldo or Edgar after UFC 200
Now it might seem odd to make Aldo vs. Edgar for the interim title if the winner is going to fight McGregor. Rumors have swirled for months that McGregor may never return to featherweight after bulking up so much for a fight that originally was scheduled at lightweight, before eventually taking back-to-back matchups at 170 pounds.

Dana White: McGregor Will Defend 145-Pound Belt Next Regardless of UFC 200 Result
According to UFC President Dana White, he, UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta
and even McGregor’s coach, John
Kavanagh , all tried to talk “The Notorious” one out of
demanding a rematch with Diaz at welterweight. In the end, the
McGregor got his wish, as he will get a return date against Diaz in
200 main event on July 9 in Las Vegas. The Dublin native was
submitted by Diaz 4:12 into the second round of their first meeting
at UFC 196 on March 5.
“After the fight Lorenzo and I went up to Conor’s house that he was
renting here in Las Vegas and starting talking about, ‘What are you
thinking? What’s next?’ And he was obsessed with fighting Nate Diaz
again,” White said Wednesday on SportsCenter .
“Obviously Lorenzo and I tried to argue with him and say, let’s go
back down to 45 and defend your title or if you really want the
Diaz fight that bad, do it at 55. And he wants to fight at 170.
Even his coach tried to get him off this rematch and off the
170-pound fight, but it’s what he wanted.”
With McGregor unable to defend the featherweight belt he won at UFC
194 in December, an interim title bout between Jose Aldo and
Edgar was also booked for UFC 200.

The Early Look: Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar II
Instead of getting the return featherweight title shot he's long-deserved, however, the hottest fighter at 145 pounds will now have to fight someone coming off a knockout loss. Of course, the two will fight for a meaningless interim champion label as McGregor puts off his first title defense once more, but no serious observers consider an interim champion a real champion unless it has been at least a year since the sitting title-holder has earned or defended their belt.

UFC 'dissappointed' in Jon Jones but UFC 197 remains intact

Sherdog Prospect Watch: Boston Salmon
Unbeaten bantamweight prospect Boston
Salmon carries the nickname “Boom Boom,” and just over two
years into his professional mixed martial arts career, it seems
safe to say he has lived up to his moniker.
Salmon boasts four knockouts among his five professional victories,
two of them inside the first round. The
Xtreme Couture product admits his striking prowess has garnered
a lot of attention early in his career, but he feels he is far from
a one-trick pony when the bell sounds.
“I feel like I’ve improved a lot,” Salmon told Sherdog.com. “I
think people looked at me just as a striker at first, but with
training at Xtreme Couture and the experience I’ve gotten fighting
in the [Resurrection Fighting Alliance organization], I feel like
I’ve become a more well-rounded fighter. People haven’t seen me on
the ground, but I’ve been training my wrestling and submissions
really hard. I’m ready and want to show people what I’m capable of
Even though he currently trains and fights out of Las Vegas, Salmon
hails from Waianae, Hawaii.

"I've never fought thinking of money. I really want to test myself against him," Silva said about McGregor. "I think he's a great athlete. I think he's got great skills. Even though I've got my focus on my next opponent, I'd like to test myself against him. I never fought in the weight classes below, only when I was much younger in Shooto, 73 kilos if I'm not mistaken. But for me to test myself it would be an interesting fight."

It's highly unlikely Tate would be offered a fight with Cyborg following her win over Holm at UFC 196 while also on a whirlwind media tour post-bout.

PBC on Spike Weigh-in Results: Broner Heavy, Theopane Perfect
Opinion: Is Andre Ward Ready for Sergey Kovalev?
Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those
of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of
Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company,
Ward made his debut as a light heavyweight over the weekend and
cruised to a one-sided decision win against Sullivan Barrera. The
fight was important considering that a potential showdown with
“Krusher” Kovalev looms with a November 19 date in place. It’s
a bout that could put a jolt into a relatively dull year of
As impressive as Ward looked against Barrera, one has to wonder
whether he’s ready for a fight with a tremendous puncher like
Kovalev. This is not simply in the department of fighting. One also
has to look at whether these two would have enough drawing power to
top a pay-per-view.
Looking at Ward’s performance -- which averaged 1.064 million
viewers -- it certainly looks like “S.O.G.” may be as ready as
he’ll ever be physically. There was some noticeable rust that Ward
had to knock off early, but he was a tactician throughout the
Cody Garbrandt: ‘I’ve Cut My Ties’ with Ex-Team Alpha Male Training Partner T.J. Dillashaw
While drama has surrounded Team Alpha Male in recent months,
Garbrandt remains loyal to the Sacramento-based camp.
Faber -led team suffered a high-profile defection when then
bantamweight champion T.J.
Dillashaw left to train at Elevation Fight Team in Colorado
late last year. That sparked a high-profile feud between Faber and
Dillashaw, and their war of words turned ugly at times.
Garbrandt, who faces Thomas
Almeida in the UFC
Fight Night headliner in Las Vegas on May 29, doesn’t have
harsh words for his former teammate, but they don’t exactly have a
close relationship, either.
“I’ve spoken with T.J. one time since he’s left the team, but I’ve
cut my ties with him,” Garbrandt said during "UFC
Tonight” on Wednesday. “If you’re not with us, you’re against
us. He’s in my division and ranked ahead of me and was a title
holder. As far as a future fight with T.J., whoever is in the way
of me getting the title, I’m willing to fight. TJ is one of them.
Line them up and I’ll knock them all down.”
Dillashaw, of course, lost the 135-pound belt to Dominick
Cruz at UFC Fight Night in Boston on Jan.

The Dreams and Nightmares of Clifford Starks
Starks remains one of MMA’s best-kept secrets.
After he excelled on the regional scene and drew a call from the
Ultimate Fighting Championship , the Tempe, Arizona, native
looked to be well on his way to joining the middleweight elite.
Starks started his career 8-0, including a unanimous decision over
Jacoby in his October 2011 debut in the UFC. Buzz was beginning
to build, until the former collegiate wrestler ran into two men
with far more experience -- Ed Herman and
Romero -- and suffered back-to-back losses. Starks was then cut
from the UFC roster.
While his release stung, he took the setbacks in stride, regrouped
and learned from the experience. Starks has not lost since.
“I was still fairly new to the game when I was in the UFC,” he told
Sherdog.com. “Those fighters pinpointed weaknesses that I was still
trying to work on at the time. I think I came into the UFC a little
too early. I mean, I didn’t even really know what jiu-jitsu was
back then, and to go up against a guy like Ed … Once he got me on
the ground, I didn’t know what to do.

The Savage Truth: Petulant Jon Jones Not Helping His Cause
Jones had another run in with the law in New Mexico. The former
UFC light heavyweight champion detailed his Friday night traffic
stop -- in which he was cited for a number of infractions,
including “drag racing” -- during a Monday interview with Ariel
Prior to his arrest on Tuesday, Jones vehemently declared his
innocence and told everyone that he was sorry for the way he
reacted to the police officer, and that he probably didn’t come off
the way he would have liked.
Albuquerque Police Department released body cam footage of the
traffic stop later that afternoon, and Jones’ concerns were
confirmed. Calling a cop a “f---ing liar” and a “pig” isn’t
necessarily the way to go if you’ve got an image to uphold,
especially one tarnished the way Jones’ has been over the last
I wrote a few weeks back that, with the recent losses of both
Rousey and Conor
McGregor , the landscape was ripe for Jones to take his place
among the top draws in the sport. His ability to author a
redemption story would hinge on him being able to keep his nose
clean -- literally and figuratively -- and return to form when he
stepped back into the Octagon.
Fact Check: World Series of Fighting 30
For all he has accomplished, Jon Fitch has
never won a major mixed martial arts championship.
American Kickboxing Academy standout hopes to end his
longstanding title drought in the World

Zeferino for the vacant WSOF welterweight crown on Saturday at

Diaz-McGregor Rematch Official for UFC 200; Aldo vs. Edgar Set for Interim FW Title
As expected, Nate Diaz and
McGregor will have their rematch in the UFC 200
The main event was confirmed on Wednesday during an episode of “UFC
Tonight.” The bout will be contested at welterweight, not
lightweight, because McGregor is reportedly “obsessed” with
defeating Diaz at 170 pounds.
Diaz replaced Rafael dos
Anjos on short notice and submitted McGregor via rear-naked
choke 4:12 into the second round of their headlining bout at UFC
196 on March 5. McGregor appeared to win the first round, but was
rocked during an exchange in the second stanza to set up the
With McGregor occupied for the foreseeable future, the Las
Vegas-based promotion has also booked an interim featherweight
title showdown between Jose Aldo and
Edgar for UFC 200. McGregor knocked out Aldo in 13 seconds at
UFC 194 this past December to end the Brazilian’s lengthy reign
atop the 145-pound division.
That reign included a five-round verdict over Edgar in the UFC 156
main event in February 2013.
