- What do you get when you put Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz and Justin Bieber together? An interesting moment for all watching a recent episode of "Conan" on TBS. The program, hosted by Conan O'Brien, was featuring Diaz when McGregor made an appearance via tape-delayed message.
McGregor also "apologized" to O'Brien for not showing up, adding "As a present, I sent Nate in my place. I just hope he's not up on that stage wearing that stupid black t-shirt he's never out of."
- Mark Hunt is not the type of individual to shy away from speaking his mind. So, as the days go by and we get further and further away from Brock Lesnar's failed drug test results coming back, Hunt isn't going away.
Hunt, who lost via decision to Lesnar at UFC 200, continued his all-out verbal assault against the UFC during a recent appearance on "The MMA Hour." Lesnar failed both a pre-fight and a post-fight drug test.
"What upsets me about that is, I'm just thinking maybe they knew," Hunt said (thanks to ESPN for transcribing). "Did they know about this? Is that why they're not doing anything about it? Did they give this (expletive) fool an exemption for four months because they knew about this? Because surely if they know about this, they don't give a rat's about any of us. 'Hey man, we'll let this juiced up freaking monkey go in here and fight with this guy.' I mean, shucks, people say (I) should have a rematch with him. I wouldn't want to waste my time with that. He's rubbish."
Since his interview, Hunt has spoken to a member of the UFC's board. Lesnar was the third fighter he has faced off against that failed a drug test, as Antonio Silva and Frank Mir were also flagged. Hunt won both of those fights.
