Tony Ferguson: Conor McGregor Needs His Ass Kicked

He was paid $500,000 for his third round submission of Kevin Lee at UFC 216 and that's already a larger amount than many expect to be fighting for when they begin their mixed martial arts career.

perth_map

It seemed like Peterson would never wear anything but purple, but the running back signed a two-year contract with New Orleans this season, and faced his former Vikings teammates in a Monday night season opener in Minnesota. The Saints increased their rush attempts over the next several weeks, but mostly by giving more touches to Ingram and Kamara.
