Conor McGregor Faces Eddie Alvarez For The Lightweight Title. Is This a Slap In The Face To The Lighweight Division?

Can the nutty Irishman make history?

So last week I was speaking on the fact that UFC 205 was missing some marquee bouts. Since then the announcements of Chris Weidman vs Yoel Romero, Donald Cerrone vs Kelvin Gastelum, Tyron Woodley vs Stephen Thompson, and numerous others has instantly made this card stellar even by the UFC standard. Overnight it seems that UFC 205, if no one gets injured that is, is likely going to be the fight card of the year. But the icing on the cake for this event is the announcement of Eddie Alvarez vs Conor McGregor lightweight title match.

Conor McGregor Tweeted Some Things, And Some People Had Some Thoughts on Them


(From El Chapo to Phoebe Buffay, my oh my how Conor’s impression game has fallen.)

It’s funny how much of quote unquote “modern journalism” and/or blogging has become based around sh*t we read on social media, isn’t it? A basketball player throws some shade at another basketball player? We write an article about it. An actor gives an incredibly vague update about a potential project? We write about that, too. Hell, we have at least three pages of archives devoted to Twitter beefs between fighters, for Christ’s sake. Twitter and Facebook are practically the hands that feed us nowadays.

No fighter seems to be more aware of this fact than Conor McGregor. The man damn near shattered the MMA blogosphere with a single tweet, pulled a Jon Snow and came back from the dead with a Facebook post, and then tried to force his way back onto the UFC 200 card with another Tweet, and each time, no less than a thousand articles were devoted to him for doing so.

So when the featherweight champion began tweeting up a storm earlier today, we pretty much knew that the best course of action would be to just sit back and wait for the storm to pass, then round them up and put them in the ONE place you could check them all out (other than, you know, his Twitter). So with that in mind, head after the jump to see what McGregor had to say about stuff and also things.

Shut up, you know you’re gonna.

BREAKING: Conor McGregor Releases Statement, Says He “Is Not Retired” [UPDATED]


(Don’t give us that look! This is all your fault, you pasty, charismatic bastard!! via Getty.)

In the 48 hours that have followed the shocking (and completely unbelievable) news that UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor had decided to “retire young,” the MMA world has been whipped into a frenzy, with the speculated reasons behind his sudden departure ranging from the death of Joao Carvalho to a conspiracy involving  a superfight with Georges St. Pierre at Madison Square Garden (seriously, that’s what one of the sports radio jocks out here in Boston actually believed was the case).

Today, however, McGregor has broken his silence with a lengthy statement posted to his Facebook page, which you can check out below.

Conor McGregor Has Retired From MMA, Apparently, And WAIT, WHAT?!!!


(via Getty)

Well, ain’t this some shit.

According to multiple sources, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has suddenly, inexplicably, opted to retire from mixed martial arts. Except that he probably hasn’t. Except that he *has* been pulled from his UFC 200 rematch with Nate Diaz. Honestly, no one really knows what the Hell is going on right now, but head after the jump for all the details.

McGregor vs. Diaz II, Edgar vs. Aldo, Velasquez vs. Browne + More (!!!) Booked for Stacked UFC 200 Card


(Wait, the same people who designed this travesty are capable of making this? AIN’T. BUYING. IT.)

Regardless of how we all felt when rumors first started swirling that the UFC would be booking an immediate rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz for UFC 200, the one thing we could all agree is that we WOULD TOTALLY WATCH THAT SH*T AGAIN. Whether the fight was contested at welterweight, lightweight, Franklinweight, or Moneyweight, there wasn’t a red-blooded MMA fan alive that wouldn’t fork over sixty bucks or the password to the illegal streaming website with which they watch all pay-per-views to see this rematch.

As such, the UFC announced this morning that a welterweight rematch between McGregor vs. Diaz II would in fact be headlining UFC 200. But that’s not all, not by a long shot…

Sure, Why Not: Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz II Being Eyed For UFC 200


(Pictured Above: What the casual fan thinks “gassing out” means. via Getty)

2016 is quickly turning into the year that the UFC’s matchmaking department threw its hands into the air and said “you know what, screw it.” An immediate rematch for Cain Velasquez? SuuuureRousey vs. Tate III? Consider it done! Anderson Silva vs. Uriah Hall? WELL THEY’RE BOTH UNDER CONTRACT, AREN’T THEY?!

So in that regard, perhaps it makes sense that the UFC is now close to finalizing an immediate rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, at welterweight, in the main event of UFC 200.
