The UFC machine does not stop now days, and even without an event scheduled for this weekend, some of the promotion’s biggest stars are hard at work on social media and in the gym. The latest big headlines have included Jon Jones’ recent run-in with the law for allegedly drag racing, Daniel Cormier dropping out of UFC 197 and being replaced by Ovince St. Preux against ‘Bones,’ and also Tony Ferguson forced out of UFC on FOX 19. ‘El Cucuy’ is replaced by Darrell Horcher, who faces Khabib Nurmagomedov in his first UFC fight, talk about in at the deep end.
Conor McGregor remains on the comeback trail from his first UFC loss, after being submitted by Nate Diaz on March 5. He faces his welterweight foe once again at the landmark July 9 UFC 200 card. Miesha Tate draws Amanda Nunes while Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm take up the sidelines, and Jose Aldo faces Frankie Edgar for a second time, all at UFC 200. With so much going on, social media has burst in to life over the past 24 hours, and we’ve gathered some of the hottest Tweets and other posts from around the web.
Stars such as Holly Holm, Jon Jones, Conor McGregor, Sage Northcutt, Carlos Condit and many more have all been very active. Enjoy!
Here's #TBT for ya… I took a hard shot at some point in this fight and I have no idea where I am or what was going on when this was taken. Hence the stupid look on my face. I just remember coming to in the locker room, covered in blood and asking my coach what had happened. He told me I had won by TKO, and that that was the 7th time I had asked and he had answered the same question… Good times in Japan ????
