MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR TUESDAY: NURMAGOMEDOV-FERGUSON, BISPING-WOODLEY RUMORS FLY

Khabib Nurmagomedov offers Tony Ferguson $200,000 to combat him So far in 2017, a few high-profile UFC fighters appear to take it in their own hands — and mouths — to try to generate some blockbuster matchups happen even if the organization has yet to approve them. Nothing was officially planned out beyond March of this past year, with new possession staying quiet about plans for title conflicts and other blockbuster bouts up to now. But on Monday, No. 1 lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0) took to Twitter to allow No. 2 contender Tony Ferguson (22-3) understand that he is willing to put up $200,000 of his own money to make a struggle between them occur since the UFC hasn’t done it for them…Ferguson had previously demanded equal pay to carry on Nurmagomedov despite signing a new deal with the UFC that allegedly prevents that by making the same. UFC president Dana White said the struggle would not occur for that reason though the public is demanding it. The suggested bout is for its interim lightweight title with all present champion Conor McGregor (21-3) out of action for the next 10 weeks to concentrate on the birth of his child. Tyron Woodley and michael Bisping agree to catchweight bout? Yes, current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping (30-7) and welterweight champ Tyron Woodley (16-3-1) also were seen verbally agreeing to a superfight of sorts at a catchweight of 180 pounds backstage during UFC 207 past Friday in Las Vegas. Both fighters are coming off title defenses at the end of 2016 and right now do not have new competitions. Bisping posted the movie under on his Instagram accounts to show the world that he means business. There’s a current opening for a primary event at UFC Fight Night 108 at the O2 Arena in London on March 18th, together with Bisping hinting at that as a possible date. Stay tuned to MMAOddsBreaker.com for more info coming soon, including opening lines if those fights really happen…
