Las Vegas is also home to the UFC headquarters and numerous fighters from the organization.
The showdown takes place at the T-Mobile Arena, just metres away from where Stephen Paddock slaughtered more than 50 people and injured over 500. You "handled me" in the ring, right? Luckily they are safe and unharmed, however if they were injured or worse, Ferguson would have likely removed himself from the card to be with his family during their time of need.
Ferguson, who trains out of Southern California, was in Las Vegas when the shooting happened.
"You've got to be a man and prove yourself". My wife, and her parents, and my son. If you're going to knock Bisping for avoiding the Murderer's Row of challengers that had assembled by the time he was ready to face Henderson previous year in Manchester, you have to applaud "Mighty Mouse" for always willingly facing the next man up and turning them back easily. I was just getting done with recovery at Complete Wellness out here in Las Vegas and I was on my way to go get food. Everything was blockaded but we got where we needed and everybody was safe.
"Here's when I knew I was up against it: The ref said even if I lift my leg up, it's a point deduction", McGregor said. It was just a insane plethora of thoughts and things. But Ferguson has been the hottest 155-pound fighter not named Khabib Nurmagomedov, winning nine straight since falling to Michael Johnson via unanimous decision more than five years ago at UFC on FOX 3.
"I like blue panties", Ferguson said. Instead of forgetting it, I'm bringing it with me. The people that went through the bullshit that had that sense of security missing.

The rooms in Paddock's name both looked down on the main stage and surrounding areas of Grant Park. The lineup for the festival included the artists Lorde, Chance the Rapper, and Arcade Fire.
Helwani then asked, "Is your heart into it?"
"I'm p****d. That b**** needs to fight me or he needs to fight the guy that's holding the belt". I'm very focused. I've very honed in.
"Oh yeah, yeah, I didn't take a picture of it".

"I was actually at a Walmart and my wife had went to church, across the street from [the Festival]", Ferguson told ESPN.
"They were making up all these f***ing stipulations like I wasn't taking it seriously".
