"I would have surpassed Ronaldo and Messi in second place" Conor McGregor

So, this would mean the victor would jump right back into camp, if, the UFC wanted to move forward with a title unification bout for August 4th.

And once he takes care of business against infamous Brazil-basher Covington, he'll have another title around his waist, and that should set up a fight with Woodley whether he wants it or not.

But if it weren't for the bus incident in Brooklyn things could have been very different, and McGregor's one-that-got-away fight with RDA may have finally come to fruition.

With the UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley shelved for a year due to a shoulder injury, the UFC made the decision to brand Covington's fight with Rafael Dos Anjos an interim title fight.

With a win this weekend over Colby Covington and a quick turnaround Rafael Dos Anjos may get the chance to unify the welterweight belt and become a true two division champion. I want to fight in L.A.

In his latest Instagram post, the "Notorious" Conor McGregor confirmed that the UFC had plans to make him fight at Rio in the UFC 224 card. I was told Tyron wants to fight in July or August with Georges St-Pierre, Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz.

On the second episode of UFC 225 Embedded, looks relaxed as he talks about his diet and how family time keeps him relaxed on fight week. When it's all said and done, I did everything I could do there.

"Here I am, fighting for the (interim) title. I'm exposing you. You were and always will be my warm-up round", said Woodley in a message on Twitter. "Chaos" has discussed everything from hoping a win on Saturday night nets him a meeting with President Donald Trump to calling out National Basketball Association superstars like Kevin Durant and Steph Curry, who have turned down offers to travel to the White House.

Dos Anjos managed to make his way back to his feet and eventually shook off the ultra-aggressive Covington, albeit it for a few moments before the American Top Team product put him back up against the cage. Whoever they got for me to fight at this time, come get this work.

"I don't think this fight is going five rounds".

"I have to win for me - for my family and for myself".
