This would literally be the biggest event the UFC would EVER hold…

Nearly every pay-per-view event is now described as the ‘biggest in UFC history.’ It’s a phrase we’ve now grown used to hearing. Obviously the promotion strives to improve with every huge PPV bonanza, but very few are able to deliver.

Arguably the biggest year in UFC and MMA history, 2016 has been packed with events. Its been a very busy year, but how many events delivered on promises? Certainly UFC 200 didn’t, and that was meant to be another ‘biggest event ever.’

UFC 205

Without doubt the most stacked, and possibly most exciting card of all 2016 so far has been UFC 205. Surprised to see Conor McGregor in the main event of the best card all year? Well, not really.

Since joining the UFC in 2016, McGregor has proved himself not only an incredible fighter, but the biggest PPV draw ever. He smashed the all-time pay-per-view buy record for the UFC this year, but now he’s taking some time off.



After winning a record-breaking second world title at UFC 205, McGregor is taking some time off. Stating he needed to be around for his partner Dee Devlin during her pregnancy, McGregor was later stripped of the featherweight title.

As it turns out, Dana White said ‘The Notorious’ would be out for 10 months. The Irishman has since said he could come back after the Christmas holidays, and now he’s been offered a monster fight. Check THIS out:


Woodley Wants McGregor In IRELAND!?!

(courtesy of MMA Fighting):

“When he got in my face and I looked at him I said, ‘what’s up?’ At that moment he realized I ain’t that dude. I’m really about that life. I’m really from that life. My family is from that life. I’m actually one of the sharper tools in the box that haven’t been in the streets like that but I have family members, close loved ones, that that’s all they know. So I’ve been around that a lot and I try not to take myself back to those dark areas, I try to stay sophisticated, stay professional but a few people can take you out of that element and bring that Ferguson back out of you and he almost did it. But I had to keep my eyes on the prize, defend my strap in a Fight of the Night performance at UFC 205.

“Now that we got that done – that’s off the table – if Conor want it he can get it. He knows how to get in touch with Dana [White, UFC President], he knows how to get the contract set, and he really don’t want to fight. I’m not saying he should want to fight because I’m not a little dude. I ain’t Nate Diaz. Nate Diaz is not a welterweight. He did not do well at welterweight because he was undersized and these dudes are real gorillas in this weight class.”



“If him and his coach John Kavanagh and everybody think that Conor can do well against me and they gas this dude up – you know, he’s a dope fighter but there’s levels to this. When you start going up, it’s like me going up to 205 and challenging guys at that weight. When you come up to this weight brother, it’s real power, it’s real people that will put real hands on you, that’ll put you down to the canvas and you will not get up unless I let you up.

“So if you want to get in there with a lion and get your head bit off and have me spewing your blood all over the octagon while you’ve got that goofy tiger tattoo on your chest, looking like a clown with a clown on your chest, we can do it. We can do it in Ireland, Dublin, we can do it in the back of White Castle, I don’t care. But just know, I ain’t that guy.  I don’t like to try and act overly hood or overly ghetto, a million hood stripes, but where I’m from you don’t call me a bitch, number one. Number two, you don’t fake like you’re about that life. If you want to scrap, if you want to make this money, let’s do it. If you don’t, shut your mouth. Just do your thing.”

  1. Dam tyron Woodley is truly a warrior to his words he means it, believe me his words were dying like a wounded warrior that never back down

  2. Connor would have best chance against Woodley for the belt. They are the same height and Connor has a 4 inch reach advantage.

  3. I would love to see Woodley smash that Irish pricks ugly assface inside out…..McGregor will pussy out when the time comes….

  4. Bring woodly into championship rounds and he gases..CMac at 170 he can def gas out too carrying the extra weight…reguardless of the weight difference, he has the touch of death in that left..Has anyone ever seen Alvarez get dropped with 1 shot? He puts people to sleep and he can very well drop woodly…however the same goes for woodley…hes a beast…would be one of the best fights of all time

  5. Connor didn’t join in 2016, and Woodley walks around at 205 so he means like if he didn’t cut weight down to 170…Which is why he is a monster at 170….I would love to see this fight still.and the Wonder Boy Rematch who arguably won 3 rounds by points…Just not enough damage to take the Gold…Plus That Bisping fight…..And I would love Bisping to give Silva a rematch, I think Silva won that fight in England and deserves to get his belt back before retiring.

  6. I have respect for Connors abilities but he gets smashed at 170. He couldn’t even beat Nate Diaz who isn’t a welterweight. His power will not have the same effect on the 170 lb. division. Woodley carries more power than Connor. Woodley hits harder than Connor. If Woodley got ahold of him there is absolutely nothing he will be able to do. I’d be surprised if Connor was dumb enough to take that fight.
