Conor McGregor was not considered a replacement option for UFC 223

Ferguson Out, Holloway In For UFC 223

Conor McGregor denied chance to defend his UFC lightweight title against Khabib Nurmagomedov because Dana White doesn’t think he could ‘make weight in six days’

Video of the incident clearly showed McGregor hurling a dolly through a side window of the bus as it moved slowly in a vehicle park at the Barclays Center in NY.

"You's'll strip me of nothing you's do nothing c-s".

"His plane can not take off, he can not leave the state of NY with this warrant, he'll be grounded". "And it's a real bad career move for him".

The incident is believed to have been sparked by an altercation earlier this week between Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor's training partner, Artem Lobov.

Patriots Trade Cooks to Rams for 1st Round Draft Pick
The Patriots now have a chance to really shake up the first round and ruin their rivals' chances at quarterbacks in the process. For the purposes of this exercise, we will assume the Browns and Jets take Josh Allen and Sam Darnold in some order.

Nurmagomedov will now face featherweight champion Holloway, with the victor claiming McGregor's crown and the interim belt becoming null and void when a new champion is decided. He has yet to defend the belt as he was involved in one of the biggest boxing bouts of all time when he challenged undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr., in August 2017. "Conor McGregor is 100 percent coming back this year", White said.

ESPN's Brett Okamoto interviewed UFC president Dana White after the matter. While the expectation is that McGregor will get stripped after Nurmagomedov and Holloway fight at UFC 223, if "The Eagle" wins, a McGregor showdown would make sense. Ferguson's freak knee injury knocked him out of action and almost derailed the main event of the card.

White added that Ferguson's interim belt is "going away" and that the victor of Nurmagomedov-Holloway will be crowned the new champ.

"Conor went bananas and put a beating on the van that we were in looking for Khabib", Chiesa's coach Rick Little said.

Robert Griffin III agrees to 1-year deal with Baltimore Ravens
I know RGIII - he'll speak to this - I felt like he really wanted to be here. I believe our players are going to love the fact that he's here.

Conor McGregor will have a chance to reclaim his belt when and if he ever returns to the UFC. He was stripped of the featherweight belt two weeks later. Once the fight starts, McGregor will no longer be champion and the need for the interim belt will go away - leaving the victor as the true 155-pound champ.

Lesnar has not fought for White's company since the infamous UFC 200 in July 2016, when he defeated Mark Hunt but later failed a pair of drug tests, leading to a lawsuit from Hunt. White was hesitant to book a fifth fight between the two but could be forced to should Nurmagomedov walk out the champ.

White called Thursday's attack "criminal, disgusting and it makes me sick", according to USA Today. It's possible, but we've also seen McGregor take verbal shots at the UFC like this in the past, only to proceed with business as usual. "Tony is still the number one contender".
