Conor McGregor is swelling with confidence for his UFC 246 headliner with Donald Cerrone, and the former UFC champ-champ is expecting a dominant performance. That's a tough one.

Love or loathe Conor McGregor - and there is generally very little shades of grey when it comes to the irascible Irishman - he remains the biggest draw in the mad, bad world of mixed martial arts. Manny Pacquiao, talks have been ongoing in that.

"I feel now I could take that victory".

"One of my aspirations now is to win a world boxing title".

"I think that would be a phenomenal feather in the cap and something I look to achieve in the future and something I will achieve". I'm back with my boxing coaches in Crumlin Boxing Club where I learned how to throw a punch.

The Foreign Minister of Iran further noted that the U.S. was looking to "increase the prices of oil and energy" for its own sake. Modi also thanked Iranian leadership for the progress made in the Chabahar project and inclusion of it in Special Economic Zone.

"I'm confident it's going to be a nice paycheck".

PETA eventually got around to seeing the comments and fired right back by calling them 'cowards'.

This is his first fight since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 almost 18 months ago.

McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) has largely expressed respect and admiration for Cerrone (36-13 MMA, 23-10 UFC) in the lead-up to Saturday's welterweight main event.

The 31-year-old was arrested and charged with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief last March after it was alleged he took a man's phone and smashed it on the ground in Miami - the charges were later dropped over inconsistencies in the victim's testimony. But I can read Donald like a children's book, if we're being honest. I'm great at this game.
