The constant forward pressure was enough to impress the judges, and Colby Covington is the new interim UFC Welterweight Champion. However, McGregor said something camp up that scuttled his fight against Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight title.

And once he takes care of business against infamous Brazil-basher Covington, he'll have another title around his waist, and that should set up a fight with Woodley whether he wants it or not. "If you got something to say, come see me".

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, celebrating his ranking on the Forbes Highest paid athletes list, McGregor let it slip that he was supposed to fight last month in Rio.

UFC 224 took place in Brazil, and any legal issues McGregor is going through could easily preclude him from traveling overseas to fight. I'm ready. I've been starting to go 100 percent on a lot of things.

With all to fight for in the fifth and final round, Covington immediately attempted to take the fight back to the ground, once again pressuring dos Anjos against the cage and sapping his energy. I am looking for a 4th round TKO for Rafael Dos Anjos hopefully stopping the BS propelled hype train that is Colby Covington.

"It will be his first five-round fight and I think he'll have a hard time to last five rounds with me".

"That's the fight to make", White said."But there's no fight to make until we figure out what happens with Conor."
After knocking out Lawler to win the title in July 2016, he fought to a majority draw in a title fight with Stephen Thompson, then won a majority decision against him in a rematch before beating Maia. "I'm exposing you. You were and always will be my warm-up round", said Woodley in a message on Twitter. "I'm a very competitive guy, and once I step inside the Octagon, I'm a cold-blooded fighter; I don't bring any emotions with me". I get it - everybody wants to make some money, everybody wants to get big fights.

The top-10-ranked UFC strawweight contender rarely has a bad word to say about anyone, and throughout her career, she's avoided the kind of heated rivalries that are spurred on by words as much as action. "I'm just happy to be fighting and performing at my best". "And I'm sure I'm going to win, and I'll fight (Woodley) later on".
