The showdown takes place at the T-Mobile Arena, just metres away from where Stephen Paddock slaughtered more than 50 people and injured over 500. "I fell ill during fight week and that's something that was out of my control. If you out there and tiramisu is the reason why you don't go out there and make a lot of money and put your life on the line for these folks then eh. and I ain't got 4,000 Russians showing up for me!"
The boxing match between Mayweather vs. McGregor was more exciting than what people hyped it was going to be. The fight was tantalizing throughout and is a ideal example of why Fabricio is still one of the key players in the UFC heavyweight division going forward. The pair were scheduled to met at UFC 215, but Borg was forced out of the bout due to illness during fight week. Flyweight title challenger Ray Borg escapes fight week stress by focusing on a different type of target.
"So after this one, maybe I might give him a shot at the title". It will be on my timetable, I'll tell him when we gonna fight.
And it's not that people want parity either because a year ago when belts were changing hands on the regular, most people said it was a bad thing, yet they still didn't get behind the one guy who managed to hold on to his title.
The night the fight was officially called off, the team huddled together in Edmonton and came up with a list of elements it wanted to work on in advance of a make-up date with Johnson.
"I don't want to fight someone who doesn't want to fight me or compete against some of the best", Ferguson said. "I don't even think beat Nate Diaz the second time". To Dunham (18-6 MMA, 11-6 UFC), the event now feels like more than a chance to set a career-high with a fifth straight victory in the octagon when he fights Beneil Dariush (14-3 MMA, 8-3) to open the pay-per-view card.
"I am bringing all of that; the people that were harmed and injured or are not here anymore". If the majority of his other title defences are anything to go by, this should be nothing more than a procession for "Mighty Mouse".
