McGregor launches foul-mouthed response as UFC strip lightweight title

Well, here's a quick timeline. McGregor has not fought for UFC since he won the 155-pound title in November 2016 and last fought at all in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr in August a year ago, which ended in defeat. The craziest part of all of this is that it doesn't feel surprising, at all. The victor of Nurmagomedov vs Holloway will need time to recover, and White could nominally "suspend" McGregor for a short spell without really impacting the date of a McGregor-vs-winner fight.

What Patriots' Brandin Cooks trade could mean for the Buffalo Bills

perth_map

Los Angeles will not pick until the third round with the 87th overall selection. A first-round pick by the Saints in 2014, Cooks last year had 65 catches for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns in his first year with New England . "On the surface, trading a first-round draft pick for Brandin Cooks when the Rams already have Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods on their roster might seem like a luxury, but when you look at the Rams personnel usage in 2017, another top receiver was a team need".
