Joe Rogan questions answers everything.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator is making predictions for the future of the promotion’s lightweight division, currently being held hostage by 155-pound kingpin Conor McGregor.

And it doesn’t look good for “Notorious” mixed martial arts (MMA) fans.

That’s because Rogan predicts the promotion will strip McGregor of the lightweight strap, giving Khabib Nurmagomedov the opportunity to fight interim champion and longtime rival Tony Ferguson.

Right in his own backyard, according to Rogan’s podcast prediction (via MMA Junkie):

“Here’s my prediction: My prediction (is) Conor doesn’t fight for a while. They strip Conor. Tony and Khabib fight for the world title. I think they’re going to strip him, because Conor’s got $100 million in the bank, and he’s having fun and talking (expletive), and he’s going to keep training,” Rogan said. “And he’s going to make a big fight in the future, but I think Khabib and Tony is the big fight and (expletive), they might even do that one in Russia. They’re talking about doing a big fight in Russia.”

So much for that Rocky storyline.

McGregor has not competed in MMA since his UFC 205 win over Eddie Alvarez in New York in late 2016. He made a pit stop on the “sweet science” to get rich with Floyd Mayweather Jr., then failed to commit to a UFC return date (because of this).

Or had one and got spanked, if you believe this crap.

Either way, the show must go on, and promotion president Dana White has given his “Notorious” champion a few months to shit or get off the pot. Otherwise, “El Cucuy” will get to call himself the rightful king of the 155-pound weight class.

Which some fighters already knew.

McGregor feeling fresh after warm-weather training .
Scottish champions Celtic are eager to secure another domestic treble this season after their warm-weather training in Dubai helped to regain freshness ahead of the second half of the season, according to the Scotsman. The Hoops comfortably defeated Brechin in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup on the weekend and the freshness of the players was noticeable. All the players involved looked fully match fit and buzzed around the pitch with a spring in their step. It looks like Brendan Rodgers’ warm weather training in Dubai with the squad has worked well. Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor, who was one of the standout performers on the weekend, is confident that the players can step up their performances until the end of the campaign. “You could see throughout the team that freshness is back. Scotty played a lot of games, we all did. He’s got that freshness back, he’s had that break. We’re used to two or three games a week.” “We’ve just come off the back of a break so we are ready to go and enjoy the challenge. We played a lot of games; it was high demand in the Champions League. The break was good, both for the legs and mentally too. We needed it.” McGregor is now hoping to continue to put in good performances to help his side secure all the domestic trophies this season. Celtic looked fatigued and weary towards the end of December, where they lost their 69-match unbeaten run in Scottish competitions against Hearts, but they now look fit and raring to go for the remainder of the campaign.
