Disgraced MMA Star Conor McGregor arrives to Brooklyn Courthouse to face a battery of assault charges stemming from an attack on an UFC Bus carrying several professional fighters including Khabib Nurmagomedov who is McGregor’s nemesis and many believe McGregor can not beat.
Two of the most controversial stars of their fields, MMA/UFC star Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. have agreed on a date of 08/26/17 in Las Vegas. This could be the biggest fight of all time. Rumors have been circulating for over a year. I asked Sylvester Stallone a year ago before anyone thought the fight would really go down his thoughts on a match up between McGregor and Mayweather and this is what he had to say…
So I watched a recent UFC on FOX George St. Pierre interview where GSP said he was ready to come back but Dana White was being cheap by not wanting to update his fighting contract. The rumor is that White wants GSP to come back at the same pay rate as he fought when he left the UFC a few years ago. I sincerely hope that is not the case but learning about Dana White’s propensity of putting corporate sponsors first as well as the UFC brand being more powerful than anyone star, it is no wonder negotiations are at a stand still. George St. Pierre is too smart to lose his endorsement deals that give him more money than fighting for the UFC under the old contracts and the recent UFC deal with Reebok. So could the biggest fight in UFC history be lost because of ego and greed? Probably.
But I heard a delicious rumor that GSP was going to return and a big fight match up could happen with Conor McGregor. So I asked Sylvester Stallone his thoughts on a possible match up.
