Mirko Cro Crop may have never failed a drug test. That doesn't mean his suspension will be rescinded.


Fabricio Werdum didn't take too kindly to UFC middleweight champion, Luke Rockhold's recent comments, where he guaranteed on MMA Junkie that he could defeat Werdum and went on to say he had no respect for him whatsoever.

In an exclusive interview for Combate, Werdum fired back, saying he would not fight Rockhold because he only fights men.

"Everyone in the fight business knows I'm not arrogant at all. He is the one who is quite arrogant, actually. He said he would fight me, huh? The problem is that I only fight men, not wimps. He should ask Velasquez if he has any chance against me."

When asked when the whole tiff with Rockhold started, Werdum revealed he had no idea, but admitted he never liked him anyway.

"I don't know what happened, but honestly, I never really cared for Rockhold. I don't like people who are full of themselves. If you're the man, you don't have to show it to other people. He has his head up his ass."

McGregor took umbrage with Mayweather's implication that race has something to do with why McGregor has emerged as one of the most popular fighters in the UFC in a Facebook post Friday.

"Floyd Mayweather, don't ever bring race into my success again," McGregor wrote. "I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood. In my family's long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name 'McGregor' was punishable by death. Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again."

McGregor, the UFC's featherweight champion, also challenged Mayweather to a fight. He offered the boxing legend an 80-20 split -- with McGregor getting the greater sum.

"If you want we can organise a fight no problem," wrote McGregor, who will challenge for the UFC lightweight title against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 197 on March 5. "I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue. At 27 years of age, I now hold the key to this game. The game answers to me now."
