Conor McGregor Seems Totally Cool With What Happened Last Night

At UFC 229, former champ Conor McGregor took a beating at the hands of reigning champ Khabib Nurmagomedov. Then, because of all the bad blood between them, Khabib spat on Conor, climbed over the cage, and leaped into the audience to scrap with McGregor’s teammate, Dillon Danis.

To make matters worse, Khabib’s teammates scampered over the side of the cage and attacked McGregor. It was total bedlam, and it ended with Las Vegas police escorting McGregor backstage.

A dismayed UFC boss Dana White made it clear that some of Khabib’s teammates were subsequently arrested. And for sure the Nevada State Athletic Commission was withholding Nurmagomedov’s fight purse pending a review of the chaos.

But you know who seems totally cool with what transpired? Conor McGregor.

Here’s what the Irish superstar said on both Twitter and Instagram afterwards:

As for Khabib’s teammates who were arrested, McGregor even declined to press charges.

Those dudes ganged up on him and attacked him from behind. And McGregor is cool with that!

We’ll never know for sure, but I suspect that, had McGregor won the fight, he wouldn’t have spit on Nurmagomedov and attacked his team. He might have actually been respectful – complimentary even.

Here’s champ Daniel Cormier giving his two cents:

Midnight Mania! Tate: Jackson-Wink Treatment of Cowboy ‘Not Cool’

Bringing you the weird and the wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Former UFC champion Meisha Tate weighed in on the controversy between Donald Cerrone and his old gym, Jackson-Winklejohn. Cerrone had a lot to say about Mike Winklejohn, in particular, after he was booted from the gym in favor of newcomer Mike Perry. He blasted Winklejohn for allowing anyone off the street to spar pro fighters, among other complaints. In return, Winklejohn called Cerrone “narcissistic” and said the split was a long time coming. Meisha Tate came down largely on the side of Donald Cerrone. Via MMAFighting.com:

“This is reminiscent,” Tate said. “I feel like we’ve heard this story about this camp before when it was Rashad Evans and him feeling like he was pushed out of the spot with Jon Jones coming in.

“What I think is not cool, if it had been someone that had been training there like Carlos Condit or someone like that who had been training there a long time and they were gonna fight each other and both had that mutual respect, and mutual foundation at that gym, that’s different. But when the new guy is coming in and he’s like, ‘I wanna fight Cowboy’ and he comes to Cowboy’s gym, I think that the right thing to do by the gym – I think there’s some loyalty that should be towards Cowboy. He’s been there a really, really long time.”

Winklejohn’s response to this would probably be similar to the response he already gave “Cowboy”, that loyalty runs both ways and Cerrone hadn’t been showing loyalty to the gym in his estimation.

Tate explained how she thought the situation should have been handled:

‘This is probably not the camp for you to come in, Mike, because you’re fighting our boy. Cowboy has been with us forever. We’d love for you to come in for the next camp but Cowboy’s our dude,’” Tate said. “That’s how I think. Even though I know Cowboy doesn’t drive there every single day, he doesn’t train at the gym – there are some other reasons I think behind that, I think – that’s just me. That’s how I hope my gym would operate if I was under those circumstances.”

Cool Is Dan Hooker Calling Out the Guy Interviewing Him

Last night’s UFC Fight Night 128 had a moment of sadness to it, with young New Zealander Dan Hooker knocking aged veteran Jim Miller out inside of a round.

But that sadness turned to coolness when Hooker had his postfight interview with Paul Felder.

Felder, you see, is a badass fighter in addition to being a commentator, so when he asked Hooker who he wanted next as an opponent, Hooker said he wanted someone ranked. Someone like Felder.

Now, this isn’t the first time a fighter has called out his interviewer – when Tito Ortiz was doing interviews for Affliction, he was the recipient of a challenge or two. However, it was nice and respectful the way Hooker did it, made even more so by Felder being a total class act about it all.

Watch the clip below.

Frankie Edgar Cool With Fighting Soon After Knockout Loss

Former lightweight champ and longtime featherweight contender Frankie Edgar was supposed to challenge Max Holloway for the belt. But injury put Holloway on the shelf, so Edgar took on up-and-comer Brian Ortega instead.

That didn’t end well. At UFC 222, Ortega knocked Edgar out.

It was the first time Edgar has ever lost via knock out. Shocking, yes. But it happens.

However, Edgar is jumping back in the cage at UFC Fight Night 128 to rematch with Cub Swanson. On April 21. Just a little over a month since he was KO’d.

Technically, the automatic suspension handed down by athletic commission to victims of knockouts is 30 to 60 (or sometimes 90) days. But neurological clearance by a physician can supersede that, so really, the only thing stopping Edgar from getting into the cage too soon is Edgar’s sense of self-preservation.

But when Edgar was on Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” yesterday, he seemed unconcerned.

“I’m the one in there. I’m the one putting it on the line, and there’s nothing like getting in there and getting a win to erase that last loss. And again, it’ll never erase it, but at least it’ll kinda help deal with that stink, and like you said, give me something positive to kinda focus on instead of focusing on the negative.”

“I was pretty with it,” Edgar said. “I recall the knockout because I didn’t get turned off or anything. Even when I was going down, I knew I had a short time. In my head I was saying, ‘Alright, short time, short time. Let’s try to get through this.’ But obviously he was able to capitalize on it with that uppercut. And even when I fell, as soon as the ref came over me, I said I was good, and maybe I wasn’t — I’m not really complaining about the stoppage, I can see why he stopped it — but I was with it. As soon as he stopped it, I said, ‘I’m good! I’m good!’ I was trying to argue. Obviously I needed a little help [to stand up], but I wasn’t all the way out. I didn’t even have a headache afterwards that night at the hotel or anything.”

Come on, Frankie. We love you. Take care of yourself.

Valentina Shevchenko Very Much Not Cool With Losing Decision

You know what has to suck? Being one of the best fighters in your division, but losing to the champ twice via questionable decision. Such is the case with Valentina Shevchenko, who’s beaten everyone – everyone – but champ Amanda Nunes. And those two losses to Amanda Nunes really could have gone either way. After […]
