Share this article


It's been a helluva a week for MMA news some good, some bad but always interesting.

European and Irish MMA fighters will be delighted that Cage Warriors have announced a date for their first show in almost a year and a half.

The promotion's former champs include Conor McGregor, Neil Seery, Cathal Pendred (recently retired), Steve Ray and Nicholas Dalby all who currently ply their trade in the UFC.

UFC 196 is currently without a main event after first Cain Velasquez withdrew due to injury and then Fabricio Werdum dropped out.

Stipe Miocic had stepped in to face champion Werdum but less than 24 hours later the fight was off. Werdum is claiming injury while Miocic's camp are calling foul.

Last week Conor McGregor again wowed the MMA world and beyond with his virtuoso performance at the UFC 197 press conference.

On March 5th The Notorious will make history if he can beat lightweight champ Rafael Dos Anjos to become the UFC's first active dual weight champion.

Here's a run down of the 10 points we discuss this week...

  1. Cage Warriors is back!
  2. UFC 196 has no main event
  3. UFC 197 presser was class
  4. Rift? There is no rift!
  5. TUF 23 coaches announced
  6. Koscheck v Daley rematch...? Maybe
  7. No BJ, dont do it.
  8. Jacare v Belfort means Weidman rematch or...
  9. Mighty Mouse wants $2 million... Bwahahaha
  10. The Hippo calls time

Gus also spoke to 'The Russian Hammer' Artem Lobov.

Best known as the main training partner of McGregor, Lobov recently lost The Ultimate Fighter Final. He makes his UFC debut proper at UFC 196 on February 6th.

You can watch Artem in action at UFC 196 live on UFC Fight Pass from 11:15pm GMT on Saturday, Feb 6 and watch the main card live on BT Sport (part of the Setanta Pack in Ireland) from 1am GMT.
