Conor McGregor has taken the time to reflect on his UFC 246 victory over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Back in January, McGregor made his highly-anticipated return to the Octagon. The “Notorious” one headlined UFC 246 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Standing across from him was Cerrone and the bout lasted just 40 seconds. […]

UFC lightweight contender Paul Felder was a part of the broadcast team for UFC 246 last month, which featured the return of Conor McGregor.

McGregor headlined the record-breaking pay-per-view (PPV) event by taking on Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, who he took out in only 40 seconds. After the win, McGregor walked past the broadcast team and shouted “f*ck you!” It seemed like McGregor was aiming the remark towards Felder, a fellow 155-pound contender. However, it remains unclear what issues McGregor might have with Felder.

Some believe that McGregor might have been, instead, talking to Kamaru Usman or Jorge Masvidal who were seated in the crowd. Speaking to MMA Fighting, Felder doesn’t really put too much thought into it, as he’s focused on his upcoming opponent, Dan Hooker.

“I was there like what? Is he talking about me?” Felder said. “Some people are saying he was talking about me. Other people were saying he was talking about [Kamaru] Usman or [Jorge] Masvidal. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter.

“It got me plenty of attention even if it wasn’t meant towards me. It doesn’t matter. But we’re having fun with it. That’s one people are taking (it) so serious, coming at me. I’m like, guys, it’s a joke. I’m not fighting Conor right now, I’m fighting Dan Hooker. Relax.”

Felder and Hooker will headline the UFC Auckland card from the Spark Arena in New Zealand this weekend (Sat. February 22, 2020). It’s a fight that has actually featured a bit of bad blood, as Felder and Hooker have been exchanging some slightly personal trash talk over the past few weeks. Both men are talented strikers and never fail to put on a show.

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top when Felder challenges Hooker in front of his native New Zealand crowd.

What do you think about Felder’s response to being called out by McGregor?

Donald Cerrone Denies Getting PPV Money For UFC 246

It looks like Donald Cerrone didn’t necessarily get the “red panty night” everyone thought he was going to get for fighting Conor McGregor at UFC 246 last month.

Typically, when someone fights McGregor, they’re set for a million-dollar, or more, payday. However, taking to Instagram to respond to a fan, Cerrone noted he did not receive pay-per-view (PPV) points for the fight, and was only paid a flat rate to show up.

Cerrone only made $200,000 in total for the contest. His contract was $200,000 to show and $200,000 to win. However, McGregor made quick work of Cerrone, taking him out in 40 seconds after some nasty shoulder strikes, a head-kick, and follow-up ground-and-pound before the fight was waved off.

McGregor took home a grand total of $3,050,000. That comes from a flat $3 million fee and his $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus. McGregor, however, will receive PPV points, so he stands to make plenty more where that came from.

This is especially unfortunate for Cerrone, as it was recently reported that the UFC 246 PPV did record-breaking numbers on ESPN+. UFC 246 saw over one million streams, helped pull in a ton of ESPN+ subscribers, and surpassed the Logan Paul vs. KSI boxing match, which did 814,000 buys. UFC 246 is expected to have generated approximately $70 million in streaming revenue.

Donald Cerrone did not appreciate fans claiming he took a dive against Conor McGregor.

Cerrone faced McGregor in the UFC 246 headliner earlier this month in what was arguably the biggest fight of his career. However, it ended in an underwhelming 40-second TKO defeat for “Cowboy” who received plenty of criticism for his performance.

Many had already claimed he was a favorable opponent for McGregor given that he was previously on a two-fight losing streak. And some fans saw the manner of the defeat as Cerrone taking a dive for McGregor.

Cerrone responded to two fans who said the same in a recent Instagram post.

Here’s how the exchange went (via BJ Penn):

Fan #1: After that big payday to take a dive you have to live free
Cerrone: Take a dive you stupid motherf*cker?? Who you think your talking to? Get a f*cking life

Fan #2: Live free and get beat for money
Cerone: You think that’s funny? You feel like I’m the kind of Man that would sell my soul? Do me a favor and unfollow me if that’s how you feel

Cerrone already denied claims of taking a dive leading up to UFC 246:

“Hell no, I’m not bowing down,” Cerrone said. “There’s a bunch of sh*t going around, people keep telling me ‘I heard you’re getting paid to take a dive.’ There wouldn’t be enough money in the world for someone to pay me to take a dive.

“I could never look myself in the mirror if somebody paid me to take a dive. Sh*t, never happen. I’d rather fight for free than take money to f*cking lose. That’s not me. I’m going to fight my a** off like I do every time.”

It should be pretty clear that Cerrone isn’t the type of fighter do that nor anyone else in the UFC, ideally.

Regardless, what do you think of those claims?
