McGregor ultimately lost the fight inside the distance to Mayweather.

After Espinoza responded to a tirade from White on the domestic take for the August 26 boxing match between McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Floyd Mayweather (50-0 boxing), the UFC lightweight champion got in the middle to back up his promoter.

Specifically, what his plans are for future fights in the UFC is high on the agenda and with uncertainty casting a mist, Joe was joined by Yahoo Sports combat sports correspondent Kevin Iole to assess what could be on the cards and how he would measure up against his prospective opponents, including Khabib Nurmagomedov who has been "interacting" with McGregor on Twitter for want of a better word.

One thing that could help is stripping McGregor of the lightweight title. "It was the biggest boxing event ever without a boxer, there was only one boxer involved in the fight". Tony Ferguson fight could take place to decide who faces McGregor, as long as he makes his mind up by March. But because McGregor wants to wait to fight, these two men don't get a chance at the undisputed UFC title. "Tony and then the victor fights Conor for the title", White said.

And right now, there is no reason to believe he's ever going to.

And his last fight was in a boxing ring against Floyd Mayweather Jr in August past year when he lost in the 10th-round via a TKO. "That's why I am here", he told TMZ. Divert a little bit of the spotlight away from McGregor and see if the obvious attention fiend starts to feel a little neglected and forgotten. Whether it's in the UFC or boxing and they had good reason to do so.

One killed in fire at Abington senior housing complex
Investigators say flames came through the roof of the 20 unit building, part of the roof on one end of the building collapsed. The fire departments in the area, which hold a toy drive every year are letting the family get gifts from the drive.

Just weeks ago, he said he'll be returning to the UFC.

While she popped up on the radar from time-to-time, the Rousey shadow that hung over the women's bantamweight division for the whole of 2016 was lifted because everyone moved on.

The main question is whether the UFC can offer McGregor a deal to entice him back after he made a mammoth $100 million from the Floyd Mayweather fight.

"Zero. I don't need money, I need only real fights, fights for the title".

As such, I'm pledging not to write about the lightweight champion emeritus until his next appearance in the Octagon is officially booked.
