MMA Odds and Ends for Monday: Conor Speaks, Te Huna Retires

Conor McGregor Speaks Conor McGregor took the MMA world by storm yesterday by speaking somewhere other than on twitter, appearing in ESPN’s Sunday Conversation. Everything was discussed from him getting pulled from the UFC 200 main event to rumors about Floyd Mayweather Jr. Check it out.   James Te Huna Retires Former UFC light heavyweight (and briefly a middleweight) James Te Huna announced his retirement late last night from his Facebook account. Te Huna finishes his MMA career with 16-9 overall record. Known for his knockout power, Te Huna’s biggest career wins were a pair of victories over Ryan Jimmo and Joey Beltran, which put his name on the map in 2013, but his downslide would begin after the Jimmo fight and he was never able to stay healthy or pick up another victory inside the Octagon. Ian McCall (13-5-1) vs. Justin Scoggins (11-2-0); UFC 201, July 30. Former top flyweight contender Ian McCall will finally make his return to the UFC’s Octagon in just over two months when he takes on rising star Justin Scoggins. McCall has not fought in over a year ever since a January 2015 loss at the hands of John Lineker. Scoggins, meanwhile, recently picked up the biggest win of his career when he defeated Ray Borg via unanimous decision this past February. This could either be the fight that gets McCall right back into the title mix or it could be the launching pad for Scoggins.
