The kickboxing champ showed up at UFC Dublin yesterday and told Dana White he wants just one fight in the Octagon.
Tyron Spong was last seen snapping his shin in a Glory kickboxing event but apparently he's well enough to show up backstage at yesterday's UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Brandao and ask UFC president Dana White for a chance to compete in the Octagon.
"I've got Tyrone Spong back here telling me, ‘Sign me for one fight,' White said at Saturday's post-fight press conference. "I want to more
The last time fans saw Tyrone Spong in action the result was a horrific injury. Now, UFC President Dana White is hinting that the next time we see Spong fight, it could be inside the Octagon.
While speaking at the post-fight press conference for UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Brandao, White surprised everyone by saying "The King of the Ring" Spong was in the building.

LAS VEGAS - UFC president Dana White held his annual Fan Expo question-and-answer session with the fans on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. As usual, the event was a mix of the serious, the less serious, and the absurd, ranging from detailed questions about the company's business to painful-to-watch attempts at business pitches.
One thing the UFC boss did indicate, however, is that he could very well by on the same wavelength as the fans who want the much-discussed potential Ander more

After a lackluster performance at UFC 174, Dana White explains why Andrei Arlovski will headline UFC Fight Night 51 against Antonio Silva.

The latest chapter in the ongoing saga between UFC president Dana White and the Diaz brothers is in the books.
Nate Diaz, the lightweight contender who has been sitting on the sidelines since last fall, took to Twitter on Monday to take a pointed, if not necessarily erudite, swipe at the UFC and Donald Cerrone.
"Some people just suck way too much UFC d--," Diaz tweeted. "An they where cowboy hats."
On Tuesday, White used his platform on UFC.com to swing back at Stockton native.
"Nate can do what more
The Las Vegas fight boss has seemingly heard enough petulance from The 209.
Even though he has not fought since Nov. 2013 (per his choice), Nate Diaz has always found a way to stay in the headlines.
Mainly because of his ongoing feud with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which mostly centers around pay (or lack thereof). When he's not voicing his displeasure with his employer, Diaz is taking pot shots at his colleagues who are competing ... or who just so happen to have fights coming up.
The UFC president responds to prodigal Lightweight Nate Diaz' recent tweets bashing Cowboy Cerrone in predictable fashion.
Well this was predictable.
UFC president Dana White apparently heard about Nate Diaz' tweet this week bashing Donald Cerrone and has his usual pithy response.
First some background. Cerrone is headlining tonight's UFC Fight Night Atlantic City against Jim Miller. Diaz is holding out for higher pay from the UFC.
With that out of the way, here's Dana's quote from UFC.com: "Nat more
