UFC president Dana White has dismissed suggestions of Conor McGregor having another boxing match before he defends his lightweight title.
In the early hours of Friday morning, White tweeted: “He’s not Boxing [sic] anyone so calm down cry babies.”
Meanwhile, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has accused Georges St-Pierre of faking an injury.
“All these fights are warm-up fights now. I beat all of the tough people. They’re all a warm-up fight,” Woodley told TMZ.
“I want to fight Georges, man. I offered to go up and fight him at middleweight and he faked some backside injury, and now he’s vacating the belt.
“So, I don’t know, man. I’m going to get my shoulder fixed and I’m going to watch the game be as ridiculous as it’s been and see who’s next.”
And finally, former World Series of Fighting lightweight champion Justin Gaethje has revealed he’s glad he lost his UFC 218 bout with Eddie Alvarez via KO.
“I’m glad I got knocked out instead of going to a decision and losing because that’s not the way I want to lose.
“I’m happy with my performance. I feel like I won because I tried so hard. My preparation was there and ultimately I went out and did what I go to do and that’s entertain people and entertain myself really. And I had fun.”
