Conor McGregor made a successful comeback in 2016 making him on of the highest paid UFC fighters. In the press conference following UFC 205 he said he is closing out 2016 close to $40 million dollars in earnings.

Conor will continue to be a money making fighter in 2017 and other revenue streams are on sight like boxing. He has already gotten his boxing license (Conor get boxing licsene) and while a Mayweather vs McGregor is not likely to happen we are not shutting it off anytime soon.

One sure thing to increase his earnings is appreaing on “Game of Thrones”.

McGregor, 28, will make an appearance in one of the two remaining seasons of the hit HBO show, according to Northern Ireland newspaper The Sunday Life.

Conor McGregor is expected to appear in one of the two remaining seasons of HBO as the Game of Thrones director is a huge UFC fan and he believe Conor is a perfect fit for the show.

Conor is a also a huge fan of Game of Thrones and has sparring history with the “The Mountain” Icelandic strongman Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson.

In case you missed that sparring from almost two years ago, here it is:

Following the Game of Thrones appearance floodgates for commercials and more offerings might come Conor’s way. As long as his acting doesn’t interfere and get him beaten up in his next UFC fights, he should be on his way to more earnings in 2017.

Mayweather Has no Respect for Conor

Ever since Conor McGregor got his boxing license the buzz of a Conor vs Mayweather mega fight has never been so loud at least on the side of McGregor.

The side of Mayweather however feels it is more talk than reality as Mayweather Promotions’ CEO Leonard Ellerbe insists this is just Conor’s way to get more attention and more money from UFC.

Leonard Ellerbe adds — “He’s done a masterful con job to try to trick people that he could actually pull this off.

Nobody is mad but it’s a con job trying to make people think this is real and even mentioning him and TBE in the same breath is disrespectful, completely disrespectful.”

Leonard Ellerbe continues — “Isn’t this the same guy who tapped out three fights ago?”

Mayweather on the other hand has taken it to a new level showing no respect for Conor McGregor as he posted on his instagram the loss of Conor against Diaz and ran a contest for the best quote:

Expect Mayweather to continuously mock Conor as he apparently has no respect for him boxing skills.

Miesha Tate UnRetire with UFC Featherweight Division?

Miesha Tate who is a former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate has earlier voiced out that the UFC needs to create more weight divisions for the women fighters. UFC only had two women’s divisions, the strawweight (115 pounds) and the bantamweight divisions (135 pounds) which meant Miesha Tate nude on weigh-ins is no longer gonna happen.

Miesha Tate had to cut weight and use extreme measures to make it to 135 pounds and fighters like her could go to 145 and worry about fighting instead of cutting weight.

Also Cris Cyborg Justino called for a featherweight (145 pounds) and flyweight (125 pounds) division.

Miesha Tate thought these changes can take a while but UFC recently announced the creation of a Featherweight division featuring Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie on Feb. 11.

Now that a Featherweight title has been created is Miesha Tate going to Unretire? Preparing for a fight while actively cutting weight can take a toll on a fighter, and with this Miesha can just focus on fighting.

The creation of the Featherweight division also means smaller fighting pool and Miesha could start reigning or making money in that division. UFC president Dana White also believe that there are not a lot of high level women at the featherweight division (145 pounds).

We certainly want to see the sexy Miesha Tate even if it means we are not going to see her weigh-in nude.

Ronda Rousey is being eyed by WWE to join them specially because she is a lifelong wrestling fan and have generated a lot of interest when she made an appearance together with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at WrestleMania 31.

It has been a long time now and 12 UFC fights have already gone by but it still reported that Ronda Rousey is still mad at Joe Rogan after her loss to Holly Holm in UFC 193.

This is according to Joey Diaz, friend of Joe Rogan, podcast with Dean Delray —

I went to this place and bumped into this guy — I’ve met this guy a few times, he’s a big time MMA guy — and he pulled me over to say how mad Ronda Rousey was at Joe Rogan. Not only Joe Rogan, but anybody in that time period that she got knocked out, anybody who said anything of a negative air… she’s just furious, and she has a long list, and she’s very angry.

transcript as reported by pepsiboycoke.

Do you believe that Ronda is still mad at Joe Rogan? Some comments from Reddit believe so:

[–]KayosssTeam – I don’t give a fuck! 813 points 2 days ago
Joe Rogan you just made the LIST!

[–]danny-flip 147 points 2 days ago
“You know what happens when you criticize Ronda Rousey… huh?… You know what happens when you say something negative… huh?… Do you?… … … YOU JUST MADE LIST!”

[–]HungrylikeTheFonz 20 points 2 days ago
I can see Joe getting Nancy Kerrigan’d in the near future.
By Edmond. Or Travis.

Joe Rogan praised Ronda Rousey after the loss calling her a “once in a lifetime athelete” however following comment were critical of Ronda:

It becomes this Hollywood trap. And Ronda was — and still is — a giant superstar. She’s this undefeated women’s fighter. She’s crushing all the competition, she looks like a destroyer and then the f****** traps…That’s something that happens when someone gets so absorbed with this idea that they’re special.

So absorbed with this idea — when you’re on top, you think you are the f****** person, you are the woman, you’re the man, you’re the s***. No one’s gonna f*** with you, I’m just going to run through this b****! And then you get cracked.

The only way for Ronda to get back at her detractors is to win UFC 207, who cares about Joe Rogan?
