Conor McGregor HEAVY Favorite Over Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 59

Sorry, Dennis Siver (pictured). The Gambling Gods believe you have two shots at beating Conor McGregor tonight at UFC Fight Night 59 – slim and none. Poor Siver is a significant 7-1 underdog against the greatest mixed martial artist to ever live – this is if you were to believe all of the UFC’s McGregor-only promos advertising Sunday’s fight. “Notorious,” meanwhile,...

What if Dennis Siver defeats Conor McGregor at UFC Fight Night Boston?

Now, I am not predicting that this is going to happen but what if Dennis Siver actually were to upset Conor McGregor.  It would certainly be one of the biggest upsets in a main event in the UFC rivaling the Matt Serra over Georges St-Pierre one. While that being a title fight would remain bigger in the sense of the fighters, this one would be a bigger loss for the UFC, after all...

Dennis Siver Out To Prove Conor McGregor Isn’t ‘Savior’ Of UFC

BOSTON — Connor McGregor’s opponent has a name. The days and weeks leading up to Sunday’s main attraction at UFC Fight Night 59 in Boston have focused almost solely on the brash Irishman, but contrary to the promos, McGregor won’t be the only one stepping into the Octagon at TD Garden.

UFC Fight Night Boston: McGregor Vs. Siver Among Top Fights Of January

Here’s how ridiculous the first month of 2015 is inside the Octagon: one event is already in the books  an event that boasted arguably the best fight of the month and a handful of additional quality matchups – and yet there are still enough standout contests left on the calendar to bring you this edition of The 10. Over the next month, title challengers will be determined, grudges...

Props to featherweight Dennis Siver (pictured) for taking full responsibility for failing his UFC 168 drug test. Un-props (certainly not a word) to Siver for indirectly blaming his unnamed nutritionist for recommending the undisclosed dietary supplement he consumed that caused him to flunk his exam. After December’s unanimous decision victory over Manny Gamburyan, Siver’s A...
