UFC 216: Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee Discuss Interim Title Fight

UFC 216: Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee Discuss Interim Title Fight

He then demanded a unification fight with undisputed lightweight champion Conor McGregor, calling the Irishman "McNugget" during an expletive-laden rant, telling him to "defend or vacate" his title.

The new interim champion submitted Kevin Lee in an absorbing encounter in Las Vegas which saw Ferguson dropped in the first round. "He keeps throwing all kinds of different things at you, and Conor is awesome". And Conor's awesome. There's no way that's not a great fight.

McGregor could want to wait until St. Patrick's Day night for his return after pocketing an estimated $100 million against Mayweather, but the UFC may press to have him return in its December 30 card.

"This went exactly the way I wanted", Ferguson said. It also shows Kevin Lee's extra hour, before the pre-fight staredowns at the ceremonial weigh-in. "I'm going to kick your ass", Ferguson said in the microphone following his victory, challenging McGregor.

That elevation skill, by Ferguson's thinking, leaves McGregor next. Werdum took Harris down quickly and positioned to apply the armbar, then called out heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic for a rematch. When I was in there, I was feeling good and it was time to hit it.

The Iran accord, which Trump has repeatedly called "the worst deal ever negotiated", is seen as under particular threat this week. ICAN founder Tilman Ruff AM said everyone should be concerned about the United States and North Korea's access to nuclear power.

"I'll ankle-pick him. No problem". He'll be running away.

At the post-fight press conference UFC president Dana White was asked if he had spoken to McGregor about his future plans - and White confirmed he had.

"I don't care. I'm here right now". This is chess and this is check. He's got nowhere else to run.

But Ferguson recovered superbly and found his rhythm in the second frame, establishing his jab and taking control as Lee, suffering with a staph infection, started to tire early on.

"Tony's the toughest fight in this division", Lee said.

I'm in the best form of my career, says Kane
England are being lined up to host the 2022 World Cup after a leaked report said it may be impossible for Qatar to do so. Asked if he was enjoying the tricky challenge of leading his country, Southgate said with a chuckle: "Weirdly, I am".

Johnson locked in the submission and forced Borg to tap.

This loss to Demetrious Johnson marked the end of a nice, two-fight streak for Ray Borg. "I damn near killed myself making the weight". [My] skill set is to move fluidly ...

"Tony was the better man tonight".

Although Ferguson could make life-changing money by facing McGregor - speculatively a bigger payday in one night than the rest of his career combined - he said he was not pushing for it. Ferguson isn't pressuring McGregor to fight him; he just wants the UFC's biggest star to make a decision one way or the other. Borg kept battling, and wasn't too, too damaged by round five, despite the fact Johnson had out struck him at one point by over 100 strikes.
