    DUST IT OF

    Dustin Poirier's coach has poured cold water on a fourth Conor McGregor fight, believing his man has proven he is 'the superior fighter'.

    Head trainer Mike Brown told MMA Fighting: “I don’t think [a fourth fight is needed].

    "But who knows where they’ll be when Conor gets healthy and is back in there. We’ll see where he goes. He’s got a journey ahead of him.

    "Maybe he needs to fight somebody else and get a win or two to get back up there but he’s also the biggest star in the sport.

    “He’s changed the game, done so much for the sport. He’s the biggest star the sport has ever seen.

    "He brings a lot of eyeballs. He’s done a lot of great things but I think skill wise, we’ve got the superior fighter with Dustin.”

    'PIECE OF S***'

    Jake Paul said 'evil man' Conor McGregor 'had what was coming for him' after his horror leg break against Dustin Poirier.

    Paul was cageside at UFC 264 as McGregor suffered a broken tibia just before the end of round one, with the doctor stopping the fight.

    But even as the Irishman laid down afterwards in a heated interview with Joe Rogan, he goaded Poirier and his wife Jolie.

    Footage has also emerged of McGregor – who has been handed a six month medical suspension – making sick threats to the pair while still in the octagon.

    It left Paul having little sympathy for the former two-weight UFC champion, who left the T-Mobile Arena on a stretcher before being hospitalised.

    He told TMZ Sports: "He’s a piece of s***. He’s sitting there on the ground after losing, talking s*** to Dustin Poirier’s wife. I don’t feel bad at all.

    “I think he’s an evil man, and he had what was coming for him.”

    NO CON DO

    Khabib Nurmagomedov named himself in his 'magnificent seven' UFC Greatest of All Time list.

    But unsurprisingly, he left out arch rival Conor McGregor, who was submitted in their bitter 2018 grudge match.

    Nurmagomedov told ESPN: "I don't want to push my name, 'Call me greatest of all time'. No. I am one of the greatest of all time.

    "I am on one level with Fedor [Emelianenko], Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier, Demetrious Johnson, Georges St-Pierre.

    "I am on one level. I put my name on one level."

    ON THE PAUL

    Pauli Malignaggi offered Conor McGregor a winner-takes-all fight and said his sparring rival can only get more money against Jake Paul.

    He explained: “I mean, I wouldn’t put it past anything but I don’t think Conor McGregor is ever going to want to fight me.

    “The only way that I’d fight Conor McGregor is if it’s winner-takes-all at this point.

    “I wouldn’t fight Conor McGregor, there wouldn’t be any kind of negotiations it’s either winner-takes-all or we don’t fight.

    “At this point he’s got everybody convinced he’s better and there’s more than enough money in the pot.

    “He makes more money fighting me than anybody else other than maybe Jake Paul.

    “So, I don’t see him taking that kind of deal, so there’s probably not going to be a fight.”

    PAUL OVER NOW

    Jake Paul has vowed to knock Conor McGregor's 'fake ass teeth' of his mouth as he targets a showdown with the UFC's poster boy.

    When asked about a potential showdown with, The Notorious, Paul, 24, said: "It could happen.

    "18 months ago, I said I wanted to fight Conor and people laughed. Now I'm laughing at Conor.

    "He needs Jake Paul more than I need him. I would knock the fake ass teeth out of his mouth.

    "McGregor would not stand a chance."

    BONE BREAKERS

    Conor McGregor joined a small club of UFC fighters to break their legs in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

    The Irishman's horrific injury was, surprisingly, only the fourth leg break in UFC history.

    MAY PLEASURE

    Conor McGregor's rival Manny Pacquiao says he was 'honoured' to meet Logan Paul after the YouTuber visited his Hollywood training camp.

    The 42-year-old is preparing to fight Errol Spence Jr in Las Vegas in August – his first professional fight in two years.

    Pac-Man shared a picture of him and Paul on Twitter with the caption: "Honoured to have Logan Paul come to Wild Card Boxing Club today.

    "After watching me working out he said he was glad he fought Mayweather instead of me."

  • Joe Brophy

    MORE FROM KHABIB

    He added: “I’m only 32 years old.

    “People are going to talk about this [for] maybe the next seven [or] eight years.

    "Because for MMA, a lot of guys on the top are 37, 38, 39. They’re still on the top.

    "People are going to talk about this until that day comes I think.”

  • Joe Brophy

    CALL A KHAB

    Khabib Nurmagomedov has revealed UFC president Dana White recently offered him a fight with Georges St-Pierre – despite both men being retired.

    The Eagle told MMA Junkie: “[Dana] sent me a message and said, ‘Hey, Georges St-Pierre wants to fight with you.’

    “I said, ‘What can I do?’ I don’t know. I’m finished, you know? I think Georges is finished, too, you know.

    "Let this guy be a legend. He’s 40 years old and I don’t understand why he has to fight.

    "I think he has money, too. I’m finished. I’m really finished.”

    PARTING OF THE WAYS

    Michael Bisping believes Conor McGregor should sever ties with John Kavanagh “immediately”.

    He told BT Sport’s UFC 264 post-fight show: “Just like his coach John Kavanagh said, he said ‘oh, I saw nothing that concerned me.

    “I knew that in the second round we were getting the knockout. Nothing else in there concerned me at all.’ If that’s true, John Kavanagh, Conor should fire you immediately,.

    “That was very concerning, you were on your back and you were getting dominated. It was a 10-8 round, that’s concerning. You don’t want to get your ass kicked, simple as that and that was what was happening.

    “The leg break was unfortunate. But, as I say it gives McGregor an excuse or a reason as to why the fight ended.

    “If that didn’t happen, come on the odds of him turning it around and finishing Dustin in the second round when round one is supposed to be Conor’s best round, it wasn’t good. It wasn’t a good performance.”

  • Joe Brophy

    MORE FROM CRUZ

    The 36-year-old added: “There’s been times where I’ve felt not right with my stoppages, but I still take responsibility for the loss itself.

    “I still put myself in that position to lose and when you take responsibility, you can start shifting from the loss.

    “We’re not seeing that, and that’s what I think is gonna stop him the most from succeeding moving forward.”

  • Joe Brophy

    MAC ATTACK

    Dominick Cruz has blasted Conor McGregor for the way he handled his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

    The former bantamweight champion said: “After multiple losses like that, you tend to sit on your hands and shut up.

    “We’re not seeing that. We’re not seeing the silence. We’re not seeing the humility. We’re not seeing the vulnerability that he put in place to put himself in a position where you may or may not win.

    “You’re not exercising the vulnerability that, yeah, you just showed that you lost. This is the game.

    “There’s a position where you get smashed sometimes, and you have to accept that as a fighter.

    “That is part of why we do martial arts, is to accept the losses and the wins and grow from them.

    “When you don’t accept these losses, how do you grow? How do you fill the gap?”

    GOOD MORNING UFC FANS

    Dustin Poirier says ‘anything is possible’ when quizzed about a fourth fight with Conor McGregor.

    He explained: “Anything is possible. I just have to get with my family, and see what's next.

    “You never wanna see someone injured like that. The recovery is gonna be hard and losing.”

    Meanwhile, McGregor has suffered a further blow by falling to seventh in the UFC lightweight rankings after defeat to Poirier.

    The Irishman is now behind Tony Ferguson and Rafael dos Anjos in the listing.

    And Poirier remains No1 to challenge Charles Oliveira for his lightweight belt.

    Finally, Khabib Nurmagomedov said McGregor is 'FINISHED' after defeat at UFC 264 – and would lose to Poirier and Nate Diaz again.

    Khabib said: “If he want to come back, OK, make him fight one more time with Dustin Poirier and finish this guy.

    “I think [that’s] what UFC going to do with him or maybe make his fight versus Nate. But both of them, I think he’s going to lose.

    "With broken legs, he’s never going to kick the same. With him, no, I don’t believe [he’ll return to the top].

    "Conor have good age, but what happened with his mind, legs — this guy is finished, but he’s good for promotion.”

    MAC ON TOP

    Conor McGregor may have lost three of his last four fights – but no UFC star has anything like the pulling power of the Irishman.

    Saturday's defeat to Dustin Poirier is thought to have landed as the second most-watched pay-per-view event in the franchise's history.

    UFC chief Dana White estimated after the one-round showdown that as many as 1.8million people paid up and tuned into the Las Vegas spectacle.

    That leaves it behind only the Notorious' 2018 epic with Khabib Nurmagomedov in the MMA company's PPV history.

    IT’S STILL CON

    Colby Covington said Conor McGregor's 'pride and ego' will prevent him from retiring as he was backed to 'face adversity'.

    Covington explained: "He has so much ego and he has so much pride on the line.

    "So he’s going to want to come back from this and prove the critics and the doubters wrong and show his true charter and show that he can face adversity.

    "Because everybody, we all face our ups and downs in our life, we all have adversity that we have to handle.

    "We have to overcome these negative situations in our lives so we’ll see how he comes back from it.

    "But I do think his pride and ego will bring him back to the game."

    KNEESY DOES IT

    Anthony Joshua showed off his MMA-style flying knee while training with ex-UFC middleweight Luke Barnatt.

    The unified heavyweight champion is currently holidaying in Spain before returning to his training camp back home for his defence agains Oleksandr Usyk.

    But despite the getaway, AJ is still staying active by visiting Barnatt's gym.

    He uploaded a video hitting the pads with one of his coaches, Angel Fernandez, as they prepare to fight Usyk in September.

    However, Joshua, 31, then switched it up by trying his hand at MMA, getting a striking masterclass from Barnatt, who last fought in December 2020.

    AJ drilled kicks, one-two's and most impressively flying knees, one of which Barnatt pretended knocked him out.

    Money Mayweather uploaded a photo of McGregor sat in an armchair with his left ankle photo-shopped so it was at a 90 degree angle.

    The American captioned the post: "Y’all got it twisted! I like how his shoes fit. Now, do the stanky leg."

    It received more than 1.6million likes.

    FLUKE WIN

    Colby Covington has rubbished Dustin Poirier's dramatic defeat of Conor McGregor.

    And the outspoken UFC ace accused his compatriot of using his wife Jolie as "a prop".

    US-born fighter Covington was commenting on Poirier's TKO victory against McGregor who snapped his leg during the clash.

    Covington told Fanatics View: “I thought it showed the ‘charitable, nice guy,’ the true character of Dustin ‘The Doofus’ Poirier.

    “He’s out there strutting in front of Conor’s face. Obviously, it was a fluke. Conor broke his leg. It was a fluke decision ending. 

    “It wasn’t a knockout, it wasn’t a clear-cut decision, it wasn’t a submission.

    "The guy is out there strutting in front of the guy’s face at a downfall when (McGregor) made his career and did everything for Dustin to give him this big fight.

    “I thought it was funny. It showed his true colours, character – he’s got his little prop, his wife Jolie out there. Obviously, she’s a prop."

    ROGAN WRONG

    Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh has slammed UFC for allowing Joe Rogan to interview the fighter moments after his shocking leg break.

    The pair conversed in the Octagon with McGregor Dustin Poirier and his wife after the America fighter beat him via a TKO.

    During an Instagram Live Q&A Kavanagh said: “I have my opinions on that.

    “Like his foot is literally hanging down. It’s a clean fracture of the fibula and tibia. It went straight through.

    “His foot is hanging down. You can only imagine the rush of hormones and the pain, it was on fire.

    "And then someone sits down and sticks a microphone under your face like ‘how are you feeling right now?

    "Let’s say I was pretty miffed at that idea of shoving a microphone in someone’s face at that stage. Let’s gather ourselves. Anyways look, what’s happened has happened.”

    KHABIB COMEBACK

    Dana White is hoping to lure Khabib Nurmagomedev out of retirement and into a dream clash with Georges St-Pierre.

    But the Russian UFC icon is insisting he has no intention of returning to the Octagon.

    Nurmagomedev is undefeated at 29-0 with his last clash taking place in October 2020 when he beat Justin Gaethje before retiring.

    And the MMA hero reckons Conor McGregor's career is done and dusted following his loss to Dustin Poirier.
