After rumors circulated that Conor McGregor was offered to be one of the coaches for the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, Dana White announced this morning that the rumors are true - and he'll be coaching against Michael Chandler.
On this week's edition of How to F*ck Up Your Parlay, Inside Fighting's Timothy James and Jesse Rowe break down their picks for the biggest fights this weekend, including: Derrick Lewis vs Sergey Spivac at UFC Vegas 68; Fedor Emelianenko's retirement fight vs Ryan Bader; and other fights on the Bellator 290 fight card.
Nate Diaz is the biggest free agent in the fight game - which is why Eddie Hearn wants to make a boxing megafight between the Pride of Stockton and Canelo Alvarez. It may seem farfetched for fight fans, but Canelo Alvarez himself kept the door open. Inside Fighting's Andrew Capucetti caught up with Alvarez on the streets of Beverly Hills, where Canelo gave a surprising answer.
"Maybe in the future," Canelo responded when asked about the Nate Diaz fight. He's got goals in boxing first - including a rematch against Bivol - but didn't close the door on a showdown with Diaz down the line.
