dana-mcgregor-mayweather

In the latest installment of the ‘will-they-wont-they’ story that is a potential superfight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, legendary boxing promoter Bob Arum and once again rubbished any such notions.

Watson” tweet, Conor McGregor has remained relatively quiet regarding the whole Floyd Mayweather Jr. situation in recent weeks, leaving the tent door open for his promoter Dana White to enter the circus.

Watch: Yair Rodriguez Obliterates B.J. Penn At UFC Phoenix

UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez v Penn

B.J. Penn’s comeback turned into a rather sad spectacle on Sunday night in Phoenix. An outcome that, it must be said, wasn’t entirely unpredictable or shocking. After all, Penn’s featherweight opponent Yair Rodriguez is a talented, dynamic, hungry 24-year-old who came bouncing into the contest on a 7-fight winning-streak. While Penn, at 38, hadn’t fought since mid-2014 and hadn’t won …
