Conor McGregor to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 264

Conor McGregor is set to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. The fight will mark the third time the two have fought one another. It will be their trilogy fight which is always an exciting event to watch. Although the fight will not be a title fight it is sure to attract a lot of interest from fans.

So far the score is 1-1 between the men. I am sure they have spent hours on their puzzle mats working out and getting ready for this fight. Everyone knows that when you are getting ready for a fight of this magnitude that you need some good quality puzzle mats to get you over the line.

Even though this UFC 264 bout is not a title fight I am sure it will be an exciting one. Both men are seasoned professionals who leave nothing on the mat. That is the test of a true champion in my opinion. You have to go all or nothing and these two fighters certainly follow that philosophy.

Whilst I say that puzzle mats are the way to go when it comes to preparing for a title fight like this one there is also the option of tatami mats. Luckily in Australia when have both options when it comes to hardcore training.

Conor McGegor in Trouble Over Alleged Assault

UFC champion and boxer Conor McGregor is in trouble over and apparent assault of a bus and fellow UFC fighters. News outlets first reported the incident at a Brooklyn Hotel last week where Conor and some other guys are accused of the attach. The incident must of be serious because McGregor later appeared in court over the incident. The UFC representative also expressed concern over the incident.

It is now questionable when Conor will return to the UFC. Apparently he had been negotiating a return to the MMA mats. What is sure is that he will need to spend more time training on him wrestling mats. It is certain to be of concern as one would have thought that he would be eager to return to the Octagon to make some more money. This delay and any court case is sure to be a costly exercise.

I guess the lesson to be learn here is that it is much better to spend your time on the training foam mats then it is mucking around with your friends. None the less he will certainly learn from his mistakes as he is presumably an adult with the capacity to learn.

Anyway we are all awaiting the conclusion of this fiasco as it will be interesting to see if Conor gets convicted (which could seriously effect his career) and whether the people he allegedly injured take him to the cleaner. With reports he make $100 Million from his fight with Mayweather he certainly has a lot to lose.
