The fighters swing away at each other as the round ends.

Yet despite all of his previous success, the 33-year-old Brazilian believes he's reached a new level since shifting to the welterweight division.

Covington has fired off shots at just about everybody from heavyweight to strawweight and even managed to spoil two of the biggest movies of the past year on Twitter. The dos Anjos-Covington interim title fight is the co-main event.

The leaders then walked along a balcony in the Capella Hotel on Singapore's Sentosa Island, the venue for the talks. With cameras of the world's press trained on them, Trump and Kim displayed an initial atmosphere of bonhomie.

A UFC spokesman said the fight promotion had no comment on McGregor's post.

Georges St-Pierre (26-2 MMA, 20-2 UFC), Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) and Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC). When I'm ready to fight, now it's time to fight.

The reigning welterweight king, who has been on the sidelines since having shoulder surgery, wants to defeat all his remaining challengers and move up a weight class. Whittaker took the first bout between the two with a unanimous decision at UFC 213 last July.

That being said, in Woodley's estimation, it doesn't matter who the next challenger is, only thing that matters is he'll be ready for whoever as he confidently stated to MMA Junkie. If Covington shows those same holes in his stand up against the former lightweight champion, it may be lights out for "Chaos" on June 9th.

On when he's coming back: "I'm projected to be back August 4". "But I've been improving a lot, including my wrestling skills".

This is the first time an official source had confirmed about this proposed fight and it was popularly assumed that Conor was to fight the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov next.

Pompeo said these guarantees would be "different and unique" than America has been willing to provide before. The North has faced diplomatic and economic sanctions over its nuclear and ballistic weapons programs.

"If the Irish boy wants to try his third belt, I'll be there", said RDA. "I don't think it's the right way, but I don't have any extra pressure (to silence him for Brazil). And I'm sure I'm going to win, and I'll fight (Woodley) later on". He then proceeded to call out the true welterweight champion Tyron Woodley who is just about set to return from injury this summer - which made this bout on Saturday night between Covington and dos Anjos a head-scratching one to begin with. When it's all said and done, I did everything I could do there.
