Romero's doctor's appt went well and he’s cleared to fight on 4/27

Sources close to Costa were asked if they were still interested, but no confirmation yet

Sources say fight isn't a done deal plus UFC may change course

A Jacare rematch also possibility ...

No surprise. All the work of Dana allowing Conor to run everything.

Conor also pushing a rematch with Floyd ... or another boxing match.

After making $100m vs. Floyd he now views any UFC payday as chump change.

His 15 minutes in the UFC is up ... Khabib and Nate set the blueprint on how to beat him ... Eat a few lefts, let him gas, drag him into deep water, pound his ass on the ground. Ballgame.
Taking a few lefts easier said then done. Ask Aldo

Aldo was beat weeks / months in advance leading up to that event. Toss that "fight" right out the window.

Hell, washed up Eddie Alvarez ate how many before getting stopped? and he entered the cage with zero game plan of groundwork.

People act like Conor's left is a death punch ... it's not.

McGregor has completed his court-mandated five days of community service

McGregor's community service, served at a Brooklyn church, was part of a plea deal that also required full restitution to the bus company for any damages suffered and an anger management program lasting one to three days. As a result, McGregor will face no jail time and his travel visa will not be affected. He will not have a criminal record.

Yoel Romero tells Ariel Helwani the reason he isn't fighting Paulo Costa at UFC Sunrise is because Costa was flagged by USADA .........

Ariel Helwani ...

Re: the Paulo Costa story

"Yoel Romero called me immediately after the show to clarify that he had only heard that Paulo Costa failed a USADA drug test but he is not sure if that is accurate at this time. He said he would never want to accuse anyone before the facts come out"

"I’ve reached out to Costa’s team, USADA, UFC to get an official word on if this is accurate, but no word back yet"

Paulo Costa’s manager Wallid Ismail ...

About Romero’s comments today:

“He’s a big liar. I don’t know where he got that from. Paulo Costa did not test positive for anything. He’s an absolute liar. This I guarantee you.”

UFC middleweight champ Robert Whittaker is back in training as of this week.

The plan is to wait and see how Gastelum vs Adesanya unfolds at UFC 236 and then start working on the date/location for his return.

The UFC’s list of 2019 signees just got a little bit more impressive. Earlier this week, the largest promotion in the sport of mixed martial arts inked undefeated light heavyweight Ivan Shtyrkov (16-0-1). Shtyrkov’s manager, Sayat Abdrakhmanov, of Ruby Sports & Entertainment, announced the signing on social media Tuesday morning.

Currently ranked as the number one pound-for-pound fighter in Russia by Tapology.com, Shtyrkov is known for his versatility and ability to finish fights.

Nicknamed “Ural Hulk,” Shtyrkov is a physical specimen who has competed at both 205 and 265 pounds.

Defeating the who’s who of veteran MMA fighters, Shtyrkov’s resume is eye-catching. Some the highlights of his career include wins over fighters such as Jeff Monson, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Ricco Rodriguez, Phil De Fries, Satoshi Ishii, Christian M’Pumbu, Fabio Maldonado, and most recently, Thiago Silva. Very few of these respected names have survived to the final bell with the fearsome Yekaterinburg native.

It is not yet known when or where Shtyrkov will make his promotional debut, but he’s almost certain to become a real force in the perilous UFC light heavyweight division
