WWE Tried To Get Conor McGregor To Appear At Wrestlemania 33

Olympic gold medalist Helen Maroulis considers MMA after wrestling Conor McGregor

When or where the fight between the two would get done is still anybody's guess, although McGregor has insinuated that he is not backing down from the match, whether it be a traditional boxing match or a mixed martial arts fight.

Before getting a chance to step into the octagon with Conor McGregor, Silva has a middleweight fight against Derek Brunson coming up on February 11 at UFC 208 and with no wins in his last five encounters, the Brazilian fighter badly needs a victory. I've done great business with the UFC, with Dana, with everyone. A guy said to me, why conquer one world when you can conquer two? I think it will happen at the end of this year or the start of next year.

"I've got the reach, I've got the youth, I've got the confidence, I've got the unpredictable style".

The talk of a Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. dream fight has been put on hold after Dana White's $25 million offer. And there have been rumors that WWE has been in talks with the UFC and McGregor. Rumors have been circulating for awhile now that UFC top dog Conor McGregor was being courted for a WWE appearance of some kind, and a new report says he's given his answer. "F*** Hollywood. And f*** you too pay me". It's the fight that people want. "Sometimes you've got to be patient with situations, and I feel this is one of them".

McGregor has already been successfully granted a boxing license in California and said he would now seek one in Las Vegas and then "see where the f**k Floyd's at". I've turned down some things. They realize if I'm not there, ain't no one bringing money into that city.

Many Clouds dies after beating Thistlecrack at Cheltenham
The comeback of 2015 Champion Hurdler Faugheen in today's Irish Champion Hurdle has been delayed by a new injury. Tizzard confirmed the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup on March 17 remains Thistlecrack's next port of call.

With the UFC being adamant in their attempts to get a show in Nurmagomedov's home country of Russian Federation soon, perhaps the chips could all fall into place pitting a massive lightweight title showdown between McGregor and "The Eagle".

"I don't care about him, I only want to fight for the title".

In a text message to The Times, White explained that the reason Diaz is on the shelf is because McGregor is on the shelf... per Diaz's choice.

Speaking at a Q&A in Manchester, The Notorious told fans that he believed the next time he fought it would be in the squared circle.
