Tony Ferguson, Fabricio Werdum have to be separated at UFC 216 media lunch


UFC 216 is nine days away, but two fighters looked ready to go during Thursday’s media lunch in Los Angeles.
UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson and former heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum sat down to talk to the media in Los Angeles, and “El Cucuy” didn’t like when “Vai Cavalo” started to talk to a reporter while he was answering a question.
“Hold on, I’m talking, brother,” Ferguson told Werdum.
Werdum immediately fired back, saying"f*ck you” several times in Portuguese, and that ignited a back and forth in Spanish.
“When I’m talking you shut your mouth,” Ferguson replied.
“Shut your mouth, you f*cking f****t,” Werdum responded. "Don’t talk to me like that, that’s not how it works. You can talk like that to your division but with me you can’t talk like that f****t.”
Both fighters had to be separated by UFC PR man Chris Costello, and Werdum left the media lunch.
“Have fun fighting on my undercard,” Ferguson said as the Brazilian was leaving.
Ferguson will headline the UFC 216 against Kevin Lee for the interim lightweight championship, while Werdum takes on Derrick Lewis.
Ferguson said afterward at the media lunch that he was upset that Werdum was “talking over” him and that’s how it started.
“I don’t give two f*cks,” Ferguson said. “I just came down from a mountain. I don’t want to be around people that bring me down. This is my shit, man. This is my f*cking time. Don’t talk over me. Because when you were in that spot, I gave you the time and the energy for it. I let you be. Don’t be rude. It’s just rude, man.”
Ferguson said that he doesn’t like Werdum’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz, who also manages Ferguson’s rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“I just don’t like the guy and I don’t like his manager,” Ferguson said. “I don’t like fake people. I can read right through people. Like I told you, I’m a good judge of character. Now that we’ve got that out of the way ... .
“I told everybody, I was like, ‘Don’t put him next to me. Don’t put me next to a guy that’s managed by him.’ I don’t like that shit.”

F <"k You: Dana White to Jason Aldean

mmamania.com:   Dana White slams Jason Aldean for blowing off UFC 216 invitation - ‘F*ck you, stay out of Las Vegas’
Last weekend, a madman opened fire from he 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada at unsuspecting concert-goers who were enjoying some of Jason Aldean’s greatest hits, killing over 50 people and injuring nearly 500 more.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) did its part to honor victims, families and first responders who were all affected by the horrific event, donating $1 million to the cause and hosting over 1,500 of those people at last night’s (Sat., Oct. 7, 2017) UFC 216 event in “Sin City.”
UFC president Dana White, though, wanted Aldean to perform the National Anthem at the event, but was denied by the country music singer’s management, citing that Jason was shook up by the shooting and wasn’t sure if he’d be performing live anytime soon, if ever. However, Aldean did perform, but not at UFC 216, but on Saturday Night Live in New York…

Boxer kisses Boxer!

Boxer kisses her opponent during very intimate faceoff By Michael Blaustein, NY Times October 16, 2017 | 3:46pm
Boxing faceoffs are all about mind games. Fighters try to look intimidating, they talk trash, and they get up in each other’s grills all in the name of mind games. Swedish professional boxer Mikaela Laurén took the theatrics to a whole other place during a press conference on Monday when she stood toe-to-toe with undefeated champion Cecilia Braekhus. As cameras clicked away, Lauren approached Braekhus, stared deeply into her eyes and planted a kiss on her lips. At first, Braekhus reacted in horror and half slapped, half pushed Laurén away. But Braekhus soon started laughing at the absurdity of it all. “I haven’t got that in a while,” Braekhus joked as Lauren exited stage left.

Thirty-six-year-old welterweight Braekhus (31-0) is the pound-for-pound queen of Norwegian boxing and currently holds the female WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles. She will fight 41-year-old Laurén (29-4)…
