Incompetent NSAC judge given ‘small break’, may judge UFC 216
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Why after 24 years are there judges in MMA like Adalaide Byrd who couldn’t tell you how to escape a Guillotine? Add in her hugely controversial boxing score for Canelo Alvarez over GGG and Byrd’s presence becomes something worse than baffling. Jack de Menezes for the Independent reports that executive director of the Nevada Athletic State Commission Bob Bennett confirmed Byrd is currently subject to a “small break” in order to review her performance.

(mixedmartialarts.com)
Gabriel ‘Napao’ Gonzaga started fighting in his native Brazil in 2003. He retired last year with a 17-11 record, which included a failed title shot at the UFC champion Randy Couture, during which he broke The Natural’s arm with a high kick. Now a 4th degree black belt in Jiu-Jitsu and founder of Team Squared BJJ in Worcester, Massachusetts, at age 38 Napao is stepping into the professional boxing ring. The fourth and final 2017 installment of Rivera Promotions Entertainment’s popular professional boxing series, “New England’s Future”, will be held Saturday night, October 28, at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts. Gonzaga will make his pro boxing debut in a four-round match against Washington D.C. heavyweight Alando Pugh (1-10-1, 1 KO).

After loss to Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor says he's free agent, open to boxing and MMA
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor held off on committing to a UFC return, but said he’s got options for his future. “I have many options in MMA,”McGregor told MMAjunkie at the press conference for “The Money Fight,” which followed his 10th round TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. “I’m sure there’s options that will present themselves in the boxing game. Right now, I’m a free agent. My name is on the ring.” A little loose from his eponymous whiskey, McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC, 0-1 boxing) spoke proudly of his effort against Mayweather (50-0 boxing) and his ability to get his name on the canvas as a promoter of the lucrative Showtime pay-per-view.

How clicks and likes made Mayweather-McGregor a fight for the Internet age, for better or worse
(mmajunkie.com)
It’s one of the best and the worst things about the Internet age: Wherever you go, whatever you click on, you are seen. You are counted. The all-seeing eye of the web knows where you came from, what you read and watched, and how long that precious bit of content held onto the frantic sparrow of your attention before it flew away, carried off on a new current. Because the Internet knows where you go, it also knows what to give you. You click, you like, and it resupplies with more of the same to feed your addiction. Which helps explain how we got here, with just a few days to go before one of the most improbable fights in combat sports history finally becomes real, while maybe also becoming the biggest of all time.

(mmajunkie.com)
Conor McGregor’s improbable challenge of Floyd Mayweather could be seen by a staggering 50 million people in the United States as fans and the curious gather in small and large parties. The fight Saturday night threatens the pay-per-view revenue record set by Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao two years ago and could dwarf it in viewership as people use the event as a reason to have friends and family over for a little escapism and controlled violence.

Shayna Baszler talks move to pro wrestling, Mae Young Classic and Ronda Rousey WWE rumors
(https:)
To a lot of people, Shayna Baszler's move from MMA to pro wrestling was leaving one world for another. But for her, given her background, it's more like switching branches on the same tree, an analogy she's used for years, long before she became a pro wrestler, since it was taught to her that way by Billy Robinson.

Unhappy with ‘monkeys’ comment, Floyd Mayweather said fight with Conor McGregor is ‘for all the blacks around the world’
(https:)
The uncomfortable topic of race came up quickly on the MayMac World Tour last month. Conor McGregor drew criticism on the first stop in Los Angeles after he told Floyd Mayweather to dance for him, referring to the African American boxing star as “boy.” McGregor used similar language a day later in Toronto and then in New York, on the third stop of the tour, it boiled over.

Gokhan Saki plans on fighting for UFC title in 2018, vows to ‘knock the f*ck out of’ foes
(https:)
Gokhan Saki, he of 100 kickboxing matches, doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who picks opponents. That will carry over into the UFC, he told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “I’ll fight everybody,” Saki said “The biggest, the smallest, the heaviest. Same weight. For me, I really don’t care who I’m gonna fight. I’m only really interested in myself. I don’t really care about other fighters. Sooner or later, I’m going to knock the f*ck out of them anyway. So, the order doesn’t matter to me.”

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor odds released for fight, PPV sales
(https:)
The so-called “fight of the century” between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is also going to be one of the most bet on sporting events of the year. The fight, which takes place on Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is captivating for gamblers given the odd nature of the set-up. Mayweather is 49-0 as a boxer, while McGregor is making his professional boxing debut — yet because of his dominance in the UFC bettors are jumping on him as an +400 underdog.

NAC approves Mayweather Promotions for Aug. 26, still unclear if it’s Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor
(mmafighting.com)
The Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) approved an Aug. 26 date in Las Vegas for Mayweather Promotions in a meeting Wednesday. But the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is not officially attached to it — at least for now. NAC executive director Bob Bennett told MMA Fighting that Mayweather Promotions applied for the Aug. 26 date for a boxing card at MGM Grand, which will air on Showtime, last week. Mayweather officials then pulled that application earlier this week before asking for it to be put back on Tuesday night, Bennett said.
