Conor McGregor's Rolls-Royce has his face on the side

Frankie Edgar and Jeremy Stephens

We have seen it many times in the past and legendary trainer Firas Zahabi claims the Irishman has the "touch of death" in his left hand.

When McGregor speaks, it rarely matters what he says. It's one of three title fights on a card headlined by a lightweight showdown between (The Notorious) Conor McGregor and champion Eddie Alvarez. On the contrary, McGregor put on a promotional masterclass that served to reiterate his importance to the UFC.

While a slew of possibilities exist, Anik believes there's only one fight that ultimately makes that much sense and it's McGregor settling the score with a familiar foe. McGregor has implied in the press that he would.

Monster Energy's NY native Weidman will face Yoel Romero in a middleweight bout.

"I have not heard a hint of him giving up the belt", McGregor said. "I'm going to rearrange his facial structure". When he came close at UFC 117, it bought him an extension on his time in the spotlight and, quick to recognize the opportunities talking smack brought him, Sonnen has continued to stick to the same script ever since. The figures in McGregor's bank account are apparently high enough he could stop fighting and never look back, but that's not the person Kavanagh knows.

Given the wrestling credentials of upcoming opponent Eddie Alvarez, McGregor's primary focus will be keeping the headliner of Saturday night's monumental event on the feet.

A survivor of the boat capsizing in Indonesia says the vessel was so crowded it was standing room only on board. In December 2015, a ferry was capsized by huge waves in the Sulawesi province killing more than 60 people.

The next X-Men movie to hit theaters will be the final Wolverine feature, Logan, starring Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart. It's always been rumored as an option, with Bryan Singer even revealing Simon Kinberg was working on an early script.

A recent report by MMAJunkie.com into investor documents distributed by the UFC shows that McGregor has had a massive impact on the company's bottom line.

Edgar, who most recently lost his fight to José Aldo for the interim featherweight belt at UFC 200, is out to bounce back and make a statement in what could very well become a wide-open featherweight division.

McGregor, the reigning UFC featherweight champion, would join Randy Couture and BJ Penn as the only fighters to ever hold UFC gold in multiple weight classes.

He won't actually rearrange Alvarez's face on November 12. Yet, it was McGregor's performance in his victory over Diaz that has made this fight even more interesting. "So they're two wonderful contests, two historical fights, and I broke them both ... the city is buzzing". "I'm looking to enjoy this whole experience".

The three of them - company and fighter and city - form a most ideal cocktail, so flawless it would have been a challenge to imagine anyone else headlining this card. He understands that, and that's why he took this fight on the money he was on for his last fight.

Earlier in the week, flyweight Matheus Nicolau was also flagged for a potential anti-doping policy violation. A key figure in pushing the legalization of MMA in the state of NY, it is the flawless scene for Weidman's return as he looks to earn a decisive victory, make another run towards reclaiming his belt and bringing back another championship to the Big Apple. In July, he knocked out Rafael dos Anjos in the first round to capture the UFC title.
