Bromance Blossoms Between Mike Perry And Darren Till

Mike and Darren sittin’ in a tree…

Looks like Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight headliner Darren Till, who takes center stage this Sunday against striking sensation Stephen Thompson, has a not-so-secret admirer on social media.

“Look strong man,” Perry wrote (via BJPenn.com). “Healthy weight cut! Do your thing against Wonderboy. Show me how it’s done. I can’t hate, you’re a beast.”

Not long after shitting all over the skills of top welterweight contender Colby Covington, Till told fight fans he would bury Perry in the striking department and leave “Platinum” looking up at the lights should they ever cross paths.

I guess Perry didn’t take that (or this) personally.

Till will have a chance to show him — and the rest of the division — how things are done in the UFC Liverpool main event this weekend across the pond. To see who else is competing on the FOX Sports 1 fight card click here.

Dana White on Relationship with Conor McGregor: ‘There’s a Mutual Respect Between Us’

Conor McGregor did his best to ruin UFC 223 when he attacked a charter bus transporting fighters from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Friday. As a result, his immediate future with the Las Vegas-based promotion is uncertain, at best.

The Never-Ending Dance Between Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz

We’ve been here before.

Last year, before the ground-breaking pay-per-view boxing match between superstar pugilist Floyd Mayweather and UFC superstar Conor McGregor materialized, it was all talk.

Insults and barbs, mostly, traded via social media. And at that stage, it seemed as if the talk would forever remain talk, because why the heck would a UFC champ ever want to step into a boxing ring – against the best – knowing full well they’d get slaughtered?

(Ah, how young and innocent we were then.)

But the bout happened, and Mayweather is a richer man for it, and McGregor has more money than he knows what to do with, and everyone that had a hand in putting the match-up together saw some love go directly into their bank accounts.

So now Mayweather and McGregor are back at it on social media. They’ve fought in a boxing ring, so why not in a cage, under MMA rules, next? Mayweather has no hesitation in teasing that idea. For the right price, Mayweather will get into the cage. If he can make a few hundred million getting humiliated in a sport he’s never trained in, why not do it?

And of course McGregor is on board. Another hundred million will ensure he never again has to sully himself with the company of lowly UFC fighters. Heck, he can just pal around with a mountain of cocaine and have an army of midgets do his bidding.

A real elbow in a real fight.

But you know who else wants a seat at the table?

The last person to ever defeat McGregor in the cage: Nate Diaz. Because if another bout between Mayweather and McGregor doesn’t happen for whatever reason, a trilogy fight with Diaz is the next best thing in terms of raking in the dough.

UFC fighters react to battle between Trump and NFL over #TakeAKnee anthem protest

It was a divisive weekend as NFL players stood up (or took a knee) for what they believed in. Here’s what some UFC fighters thought.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) picked a decent week to ditch out on America and head over to Japan, where everyone may be terrified of North Korea dropping a nuke on them but at least they’re unified over the subject. Meanwhile in the USA, everyone got just a little more crazy after President Donald Trump inserted himself into the controversial subject of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.

Some consider it a protest against the nation’s police forces and their habit of disproportionately murdering black citizens (and not being punished for it). Others feel it’s disrespecting the flag and the military and freedom. It all made Sunday yet another day in the United States where everyone is feeling quite divided. Can’t we go back to hating each other over fun things like whose team sucks worse?

As you’d expect, MMA fighters had some opinions on the subject as well, which they shared over social media. Here’s some of them:

God bless Tim Kennedy, he’s so busy doing the real work of fighting for them freedoms that he doesn’t have the time to figure out what sport we’re talking about here.

Atomweight match between former title challengers added to ONE: ‘Light of a Nation’

Two of the top contenders in ONE Championship’s atomweight division will do battle in Yangon on June 30th. A fight between Mei Yamaguchi and Jenny Huang was one of two bouts recently added to the upcoming card.

ONE: “Light of a Nation” is set for the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium and will be headlined by a middleweight title rematch between Burmese born challenger Aung La Nsang and champion Vitaly Bigdash.

Two fighters hoping to get back into title contention will be in action when Yamaguchi (15-10-1) faces Huang (5-1). The former will be looking for her first ONE Championship win after back-to-back defeats.

Huang has tasted victory in the ONE Championship cage on four separate occasions but was easily beaten by Angela Lee in a recent title match. Yamaguchi caused the current atomweight champion far more problems, going the full five rounds before losing by decision.

Also added to the card this week was a featherweight fight that pits Bruno Pucci (4-2) against Jimmy Yabo (5-4-0-1). Both men hold black belts, the Brazilian in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and the Filipino in Taekwondo.
