Lines are getting long for the challengers to Connor McGregor. Good Afternoon and welcome to UFC News from HRWager. With his legendary knockout of Jose Aldo, Connor has proven what a commodity he is. Gift of gab combine with powerful jabs to propel PPV numbers through the roof. The elite across UFC are lining up to get in on the gold mine. See how the featherweight champ has them chomping at the bit as he responds to Nick Diaz and Dos Anjos this weekend.
UFC News : Connor Knows
UFC Orlando had key fighters reaching out via social media to make their intentions clear when it comes to the Irishman. Connor the ever clever tweeted a selfie of the Million Dollar Man from the classic WWE days as proof the McGregor knows he holds all the cards in this game. First to take to the mic, Dos Anjos chimed in that the lightweight is his division and that he can come up any time he feels like it. In truth, Rafael demonstrated another dimension on the 19th. Normally he just wears down flashy attackers but last night he put his prowess to use and dismantled the Cowboy in one round.
Diaz Goes to Town
Now for probably an inferior fight but much more showmanship, Nate Diaz takes to air.
“Conor McGregor, you’re taking everything I worked for, mother f–ker. I’m gonna fight your f–king ass. You know what’s the real fight, what’s the real money fight—me. Not these clowns that you already punked at the press conference. Ain’t nobody wants to see that. You know you can beat them already. It’s an easy fight. You want the real s–t. Right here.”
Here is why the jump is logical and almost certain to happen. To get down to featherweight has such a toll on the Irishman’s body. He is a natural lightweight but went down in weight because his reach and power is dominant in the lower weight class. Now that he has made his name, he can go up to the lightweights and even if he loses once he wont be dismissed out of hand. For terms of health and career earning, he will jump soon. Diaz is the safer of the two to take with Dos Anjos probably being UFC 200 material. Good fortune today and we will see you next time here at the HRW.
