Conor McGregor return statement, Nate Diaz trolls Tony Ferguson, Holloway talks

On Friday during a media appearance, Ferguson suffered what is being called a "freak injury" as a result of him tripping.

Holloway (19-3) will fight Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0) for the UFC lightweight title in the main event at Barclays Center, the UFC announced Sunday.

The idea of McGregor stepping in to fight Nurmagomedov on six days' notice may have crossed some people's minds, but UFC President Dana White wasn't one of them.

"I haven't spoken with the UFC yet about what's next", Ferguson said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I think it's going to be a long night for him". At the time, reigning 145-pound king Max Holloway had not yet responded to the UFC's inquiry.

Obviously, if and when Conor McGregor decides to return, he'll most certainly have something to say about a man that he holds a victory over and would be in possession of two titles that McGregor never lost in a fight. I was like, 'How do you turn down an opportunity like this?'

Kim Jong Un to Meet With South Korean President in April
It was the North Korean leader's first overseas trip since inheriting power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, in 2011. The date and place for these rare talks were made public after negotiations between high-level officials on Thursday.

"Yesterday after training we were going to go home, going to hotel to relax and my brother, Ali, told me he's out", Nurmagomedov said. Six days to make weight? As each day passed before that, the excitement continued to grow as it felt like the fight could finally become a reality, especially since their previous encounter fell through one day before their highly anticipated clash at UFC 209. I think about maybe [Dustin] Poirier, [Eddie] Alvarez, because Poirier fights next week. I need to fight for the title, but I don't care who.

Holloway was out of his featherweight title defense against Frankie Edger in March, after suffering a leg injury during training.

But still, to accept this fight in these circumstances, its speaks volumes about Holloway walking the walk, and not just talking the talk. "But now he's in different territory, different weight class, different animal".

"I think UFC tell him like hey, we're gonna give you good money so you have to come back".
