Tony Ferguson announced himself in a big way on Saturday by submitting Kevin Lee to capture the interim lightweight title at UFC 216 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Dana White has insisted he wants Conor McGregor to fight interim champion Tony Ferguson on his return, denying claims Nate Diaz is in pole position to face the Irishman. The 25-year-old Lee, meanwhile, also rode a wave of momentum into the night's headliner.
Having one half of the championship main event show up last and require additional time to make weight is never a good look, but Friday's developments look even worse for Lee given that he discussed needing to cut close to 20 pounds with the media following his appearance at Open Workouts on Thursday, telling the assembled members of the press that he enjoyed some tiramisu the previous evening.
"No one has talked to me since the sale happened", said McGregor following WME-IMG's €3.54 billion purchase of the UFC a year ago.
McGregor warns that if Nate keeps making demands about the trilogy fight, he will go ahead and fight the victor of the interim title. "It's the fight that has to happen". Ferguson arrived into the match up with a record of 23-3 while Lee entered with a 16-3 record, and it would be in Round 3 that Ferguson would submit Lee in a triangle choke finish, forcing Lee to tap out at the 4:02 marker. He wants to fight again this year.
"That's what we do", Johnson said of the unique end that increased his winning streak to 13. "You f-- piece of s--, I'm going to kick your ass", Ferguson said.
Weight cutting remains a hugely controversial part of combat sports, with leading MMA journalist Ariel Helwani renewing calls for reform amid the Lee drama. Whatever I'm going through doesn't take away from what he did.
There's only one way to find out, and the concern is that McGregor will choose something other than unifying the lightweight titles.
White specifically shot down the former, calling it, "Internet (expletive)", and expressed confidence McGregor still wanted to fight before the end of the year - likely at UFC 219 on December 30 at T-Mobile.
White also said regarding McGregor vs Ferguson, "There's no way it's not a great fight - impossible".
"He's running out of time - he needs to defend or vacate".
Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre , who has opposed the pipeline on environmental grounds, said he was thrilled to see it abandoned. Notley said although the decision was driven by a broad range of factors, it was an "unfortunate outcome for Canadians".
