UFC 223: "Raging" Al Iaquinta Is Definitely "No Jabroni"

UFC 223:

"Still feel that way, but what am I going to do?"

Holloway already was the 145-pound champion and was trying to become a two-division champ by beating the undefeated Nurmagomedov in the 155-pound title fight.

Conor McGregor going ballistic at Thursday's UFC 223 Media Day in Brooklyn, N.Y. led not only to him being banned from Barclays Arena on Saturday, but his entire crew, including individuals that were not involved in the incident earlier in the week. Both fighters successfully made weight on Friday. Anthony Pettis is another fighter who was left without an opponent after Thursday's Conor McGregor melee, but considering he's teammates with "Showtime", he said there was no chance of that happening.

Rounding out the five bout main card is Al Iaquinta vs. Paul Felder in a lightweight bout, Devin Clark vs. Mike Rodriguez in a light heavyweight bout, and Renato Moicano vs. Calvin Kattar in a featherweight bout. "But Al's a fighter, and Al's a risky mofo when you lock him in that cage".

"Next week I'm gonna go home and figure out how this whole [McGregor] thing plays out", White said. "We have to fix our problems between me and him".

Were Nurmagomedov to claim the lightweight belt, he would be the ideal UFC star to headline a massive event in Russian Federation. Inside the cage or outside, it doesn't matter. Another fight lost was the one between Artem Lobov, a friend of McGregor's, and Alex Caceres.

Simmons shines as Sixers extend winning streak
And with two games left for Cleveland, the Cavs are in fourth place with a two game lead over the 5th place Indiana Pacers. Philadelphia entered Friday night's game just a half game behind Cleveland for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The shocking footage emerged last night showing McGregor bursting into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and smashing the bus rival Nurmagomedov was in with a trolley before trying to launch a metal barrier at it. The UFC has not yet announced a new main event. Felder, an actor-turned-MMA fighter, was another lightweight on the main card who offered to fight Nurmagomedov but his request was denied.

"I tried to get it. Commission is stopping it", he tweeted.

"Unfortunately the official UFC rankings have me not in the top 15", Felder said.

The victory not only ended Jedrzejczyk's undefeated run, but she failed to tie Ronda Rousey for the UFC women's record of six straight successful title defenses.

Emboldened by his money from the Mayweather fight, he has become a law unto himself, but his latest misstep has seriously tested the patience of White, who has excused plenty of bad behavior in the past.
