Conor McGregor trolled by Khabib Nurmagomedov
Khabib Nurmagomedov has yet again taken aim at Conor McGregor.
The Dagestan native has fired several shots McGregor’s way in recent months, stoking the fire for a future fight.
And he did so again this past weekend after seeing the Irishman seemingly give an update on his long-awaited return to the Octagon.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, McGregor tweeted: “Stay ready.”
Nurmagomedov responded to ‘The Notorious’ tweet by saying: “Be ready to stay on line.”
CM Punk’s team-mate give update on return
CM Punk’s team-mate Anthony Pettis has claimed the former WWE superstar has become a lot better since his unsuccessful UFC debut.
“I see him every day, man. That guy’s in the gym every day,” Pettis said during an appearance on The MMA Hour.
“He’s probably one of the hardest workers in the gym. He’s always there, always improving, and yeah, he’s definitely gotten better.
“You put that much time into [the game], you’re going to get better. He’s working the gi, he’s working no-gi. He’s training with top-level UFC guys inside his weight class, so I think we should see a better performance.”
TJ Dillashaw’s coach discusses failed Demetrious Johnson fight
TJ Dillashaw’s striking coach Duane Ludwig believes a fight with men’s flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has to happen.
“Since I’ve been helping TJ, our main goal and my main goal is to see how good we can get him,” Ludwig said.
“Right now, he is the best mixed martial artist that has ever walked Earth at 135 pounds. Demetrious is the best that has ever walked Earth at 125. So, it’s time to meet in the middle or we’ll meet at 125 and see who’s the best mixed martial artist.
“Because for me personally, I am super fascinated with the development and the evolution of the human species and specifically in the subject of a martial artist.
“I want to find out how much exactly I know by testing that against Demetrious Johnson utilizing TJ’s skillset, as a martial arts enthusiast.”
