THIS is the shocking moment Conor McGregor appears to knock a British fan's phone out of his hand before stamping on it and snatching it off the ground. Footage captured by an onlooker appears to show the UFC star slamming his designer shoe down on fan Ahmed Abdirzak's phone in Miami at around 5am Monday morning. Abdirzak told TMZ Sports he was trying to snap a pic of Conor on his phone when he lured him in by appearing to offer a handshake, but instead snatched the phone and smashed it. McGregor’s lawyer has insisted the MMA legend will escape jail after allegedly knocking a phone out of a fan's hand and smashing it. In theory McGregor could face up to 15 years and a massive fine over claims he took the phone from 22-year-old fan Ahmed Abdirzak outside a club in Miami Beach, Florida, in a "strong-armed robbery" case. But the 30-year-old Irishman’s lawyer, Sam Rabin, is very confident that McGregor will “successfully defend this case” and will not face any jail … [Read more...] about Shocking moment Conor McGregor ‘knocks Brit fan’s phone out of his hand, stamps on it and snatches it’

After Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone won his last UFC bout in January, the Colorado native seemed destined to land a fight — and a significant payday — against former featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor. “If these two want to fight, I’m in,” UFC president Dana White told ESPN in January. Fast forward several weeks and the fight sits in limbo. Cerrone, 35, last week told ESPN that the holdup is that McGregor “won’t fight unless it’s a main event.” McGregor, 30, has been serving a six-month suspension after the melee that incurred after his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. To complicate matters, Mcgregor on Monday was arrested — again — this time on charges of allegedly destroying and taking the cellphone of someone trying to take his picture. Cerrone said he was going to fight someone by July 6, regardless of if it’s McGregor or not, according to ESPN. The latest candidate? Perhaps a bout against … [Read more...] about Denver Sports Omelette: Will the Conor McGregor-Cowboy Cerrone UFC fight come to fruition?
Check out some of the Twitter reactions to the welterweight title fight between Tyron Woodley and Kamaru Usman at UFC 235.

By Morgan Campbell Sports Reporter Sun., Dec. 9, 2018 UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and challenger Brian Ortega set a record in Saturday’s main event at the Scotiabank Arena. No single bout in the fight promotion’s 25-year history had featured more significant strikes — successfully landed punches, kicks, elbows and so on — than Holloway and Ortega, who combined for 400. Those blows weren’t evenly distributed. Where Ortega landed 110 of them, Holloway connected with 290, bloodying a game but outclassed Ortega en route to a fourth-round technical knockout. Other important stats to emerge from UFC 231 didn’t break records, but sent an important message to organizers. According to the UFC, 19,039 spectators attended Saturday’s card. That figure represents complete sellout, and the second-largest crowd the UFC has drawn in Toronto. And the $3.28 million in gate receipts represent an 82 per cent boost over UFC … [Read more...] about UFC’s Holloway-Ortega card shows Toronto is a fight town, for the record
