Conor McGregor Claims He’ll Earn More Than $100 Million for Floyd Mayweather Bout

Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that's another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.

Former pound-for-pound great, WEC champ Miguel Torres announces MMA retirement

“As i sit here on the mat in my academy contemplating my life and all of the possibilities that can manifest from just mere choice, my heart feels too overburdened and overwhelmed to be able to seriously train for another fight,” Torres posted on Facebook. “Wearing so many hats does not afford me the time to seriously do what is in my heart to do. When this journey started it was to make a name for myself, show everyone that i was not an ordinary man, to show all the little guys size doesn’t matter, to make my family proud of all their sacrifices, so my daughter would know her daddy did something special for her, and now things are different. Doesn’t feel like my effort is for the love of the fight or competition anymore its just about a paycheck to buy unneeded things and taxes to a corrupt system. Have been bouncing back and forth from injuries the last 20 years, always training through the pain and fighting to build my brand and make my mark in the world. Any of my training partners, promoters, or any promotion i fought for was always aware of these things but the show still went on.

Sherdog’s Top 10: Most Prolific Submission Fighters in UFC History - Top 10

Nothing in MMA signifies defeat quite like the submission, an open, visible and at times audible concession that the other man was the better man. Since the day the Ultimate Fighting Championship was born into existence, the threat of the submission has had an undeniable presence in the sport. It started with Royce Gracie at UFC 1 and progressed from there. Strikers and wrestlers were forced to adapt, to learn to defend their necks, their arms and their legs for fear of having a limb snapped, a joint blown apart or the blood cut off from their brains. Nearly 25 years later, submissions still have a special place in MMA. Never was that more apparent than at UFC on Fox 24 , where Rose Namajunas took out Michelle Waterson with a rear-naked choke in the co-main event before Demetrious Johnson followed suit by vanquishing Wilson Reis with an armbar in the headliner. Submission artists are also cumulative in nature, as evidenced by the fighters present in the latest installment of the Sherdog Top 10 series . These 10 competitors have attempted the most submission

Eduard Folayang: A Product of Perseverance

Each line of her face seems to tell a tale. Mercedes Folayang wears the weathered look of a mother wary of the cruelest fate: losing a child. Maybe it is why she was always extra watchful each time her son, Eduard, would cough. Maybe it explains why she would hold a vigil over him as he slept, curling his little hand inside of hers while assuring herself his tiny chest was moving. Maybe it is why every time Eduard got sick or looked fatigued, she was right there next to him, swaying him back and forth with her eyes shut, mumbling prayers and hoping the ailment that afflicted her five other children would not invade him. Maybe it is why, until very recently, the proud, strong Filipino woman did not want to attend any of her son’s fights, always fearful something would harm him. One look at Eduard Folayang and it becomes hard to imagine anything penetrating his veneer. How can one pierce oak -- honed and polished in the hilly, rugged terrain of Baguio City in the northern Philippines, where his Cordilleran tribe roots stem? Folayang, 33, pulled off what many mixed martial arts experts call one of the greatest upsets in Asian MMA history in November when he defeated Shinya Aoki to win the One Championship lightweight title at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.

Predictions for every fight on the UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs. Lobov main card | FOX Sports

Iaquinta’s pace shouldn’t be a problem for Sanchez, who has a reputation for having a ridiculous gas tank. “The Nightmare” is no slouch in the stand-up but Iaquinta isn’t a guy he’ll want to trade shots with for three rounds. He’ll need to get this fight to his bread and butter -- the clinch or the canvas -- if he wants to get a win on Saturday night. That won’t be easy against Iaquinta, who touts a takedown defense over 80 percent.

James Krause reacts to Hector Urbina dropping out of their fight on TUF 25 | FOX Sports

“I wasn’t happy about it,” Krause said in his first video blog when speaking about the Urbina fight falling apart. “Because the thing on that show that makes it worse is the uncertainty of when you’re fighting, who you’re fighting. So I went from being one of the top guys in terms of certainty like I know when I’m fighting, who I’m fighting, and what weight I’m fighting back to square one again.

Mizuto Hirota to Meet Alexander Volkanovski at UFC Fight Night 110 in New Zealand

A featherweight clash pitting Mizuto Hirota against Alexander Volkanovski has been added to the UFC Fight Night 110 lineup. Promotion officials confirmed the bout following an initial report from The Daily Telegraph . UFC Fight Night 110 takes place at Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand, on June 10 and is headlined by a heavyweight showdown between Mark Hunt and Derrick Lewis . A well-traveled veteran of the Strikeforce, Deep, Sengoku and Shooto promotions, Hirota has compiled an 18-7-2 mark since beginning his professional tenure in 2005. Pugnus earned his first Octagon triumph in December, when he outpointed Cole Miller at UFC on Fox 22. Volkanovski, meanwhile, has been victorious in 14 of his 15 professional outings. That includes a second-round technical knockout of Yusuke Kasuya in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 101 on Nov. 26. The Australian has finished 12 of his victories inside the distance.

Urijah Faber thanks Conor McGregor for 'seeing the future' with T.J. Dillashaw - TheMacLife

He knows there was no ultimatum, he got lured by money 🤑And @ludwigmartialarts your welcome for employing you (when u were broke, down & out) for 1 year and 3 months – of the 14 yr existence of @teamalphamalemma, a team built with some of my closest friends, with blood, sweat, and tears. And thanks Duane for trying to warn me about TJ being sold off, once he won the belt (see the text on 3rd slide). Thank u @thenotoriousmma for seeing the future 😂 Thank u @cody_nolove for being a real champion inside and outside of the octagon 🏆💔 Thank u to @studshowradio for the best podcast ever (kinda😂) My coaching staff that is the best in the world @justinbuchholz_ @holdsworthmma @lastcall155 @dustinakbari @fabiopradobjj @masterthong916 @joey_rodriguez916 And for the word LOYALTY which is hard to find.

27’s Pound-for-Pound Top 10

On both sides of the Kansas-Missouri border, Kansas City has been privy to an awful lot of fantastic and noteworthy mixed martial arts, but on April 15, the Sprint Center played host to the pound-for-pound king of complete combat and obviously, we aren't talking about Harley Race in 1978. UFC on Fox 24 's main event offered no surprises as flyweight ruler Demetrious Johnson , an 11-to-1 favorite by fight time, dominated challenger Wilson Reis every which way before casually armbarring him before the third-round horn. As such, there's no surprise who sits atop the throne in the latest pound-for-pound top 10. But, just because “Mighty Mouse” notched his UFC record-tying 10th consecutive title defense and did it with ease, don't forget after a largely forgettable first quarter for major MMA in 2017, hope is blossoming this spring and seems likely to heat up as we enter the summer, injuries pending, of course. Our No. 7, Stipe Miocic , is scheduled to defend his UFC heavyweight title against Junior dos Santos at UFC 211 on May 13, a fight that could engender the rare instance of a heavyweight steadily climbing up the pound-for-pound ranks, as well as firming him up as one of the very best big men in MMA history.

But again, I haven’t gotten into a room with Team Mayweather yet, and who knows. The Conor side, we’re good on the Conor side. I need to figure out the Mayweather side, and maybe it can’t be (figured out). Maybe the other side can’t be done, but we’ll see. I promised Conor I’d do everything I could to make this thing happen, so that’s what I’m going to do.”

UFC Fighter Makes Full-Blown Pro Wrestling Promo For CM Punk Challenge

Ultimate Fighting Championship made the mixed martial arts community collectively scratch their heads when they revealed Phil Brooks, better known as “CM Punk”, had been signed to a deal to fight for the promotion.

Leo Kuntz opens up on fight-fixing charges against his former opponent Tae Hyun Bang |

“I think it’s really sad for [Bang], and bad for the sport in general,” he said. “There’s really nothing good you can say about it. From what I read, one of the reasons he came out to the police is because he’s scared for his life right now, because he basically blew a million or two million dollars or whatever it was. He didn’t hold up his end of the deal, which is not a good thing to do with those types of people. So I feel really bad for him, and especially for Korean MMA. I’m not sure what type of effect it’s going to have on that type of stuff.”

Bellator 178’s Ed Ruth Hoping for Step Up in Competition By End of 2017

While some developing fighters might view more rounds as valuable cage experience, Ed Ruth would prefer to clock out as quickly as possible. Thus far, the three-time NCAA national champion wrestler at Penn State University has accomplished that goal, finishing both of his first two Bellator MMA opponents inside of a round. The way Ruth sees it, the longer each individual fight lasts, the shorter his career will be. “The biggest takeaway [from my career thus far] is I want to go in there and finish these fights as quickly as possible. A lot of people want to be in there for a while, but if you’ve got a chance to wrap the match up real quick you might as well wrap it up,” Ruth told “When you’re getting hit with four-ounce gloves and the intention of the guy is to knock you out, you don’t want to be in those prolonged battles. It just takes away from you in the future.” Ruth will make his third appearance with the California-based promotion on Friday at Bellator 178 , when he faces David Mundell in a preliminary middleweight bout.

Rory MacDonald reflects on 'Greatest Fight in UFC History' with Robbie Lawler |

“Yea well the first time I broke it was the Robbie Lawler fight. Then I jumped right back in to physical training and sparring and I just kept re-breaking my nose. So it kept pushing back my fights. Then obviously I had a dispute with the UFC over the proposed fight with Hector Lombard. They had changed some dates around and some venues (locations) around on me. So my fight ended up getting pushed back months and months further. So between that and the fact the my nose kept breaking it pushed things back a lot. Then this year, after the Stephen Thompson fight I actually took time off sparring and gave my nose a good amount of months to rest up and heal.”

Help Us Save Boise State Wrestling

Boise State University just announced that it is cutting its wrestling program, effective immediately. The Bronco wrestling program has been molding young men since 1959 and wrestling has a strong following in the Boise area and in the state of Idaho. Boise State had one of the top wrestling programs in the country up until a few years ago. The program was top-ten ranked in 2010-11 and had an NCAA finalist that season (and again in 2013). Since 1999, it has produced two NCAA champions, two Olympians, and six Pac-10 team championships.  But the Boise State wrestling program doesn't just build winning wrestlers; it gives young men the foundation to be winners at life!!  Coach Mendoza, Riley Orozco, Levi Jones, Andrew Hochstrasser are exactly the type of young men I would want molding my son if he wrestled for them. If you don't know me, my name is Kevin Wood. I've been involved in wrestling for 50 years, 30 of them as a coach. I wrestled at Boise State University from 1979-82 and coached the high school wrestling teams at Mountain View, Eagle, Centennial, and Meridian.  Wrestling is the purest sport of intensity, endurance, mental toughness, camaraderie and simply "finding your true potential" sport that I have ever participated in.
