UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor used his mouth last week to offend a whole new group of potential opponents -- the entirety of the WWE roster. The question that remains is whether all of us were the ones being worked, or if McGregor was firing off the first thing that came to his mind.McGregor, who is closing in on a much-anticipated welterweight rematch against Nate Diaz on Aug. 20, fielded questions on a UFC 202 media conference call last Friday. He was asked whether he, like Brock Lesnar, envisioned a future in which he might jump back and forth between the UFC and WWE.It took nothing short of a few seconds for his response to light up social media.I havent really thought about it, McGregor said. For the most part, those WWE guys are p---ies, to be honest. They are master p---ies, if you ask me. I mean, full credit to Brock, he got into a fight. But at the end of the day, hes juiced up to his f---ing eyeballs. How can I respect that?And the other guy [CM Punk], he hasnt fought yet. So I dont know about him yet. There are some dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons, they are dons. Triple H is a don, The Rock is a don. But the rest of them are p---ies. Thats a little bit more show business. This is the fight business.McGregor, 28, didnt stop there. He went on to tweet an apology to WWE fans, but a backhanded one at best, as he took yet another shot at the roster of superstars.I didnt mean no disrespect to the @wwe fans. What I meant to say was that Id slap the head off your entire roster. And twice on Sundays.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) August 7, 2016The result was an expected one, as a number of current and former WWE superstars came out in force against him with a deluge of tweets.Would you prefer to find us individually or have us all line up at once?

(@RicFlairNatrBoy) August 7, 2016I think McGregor could do well in the featherweight division......if the WWE had one. https://t.co/90XGpSICS9- AJStyles.Org (@AJStylesOrg) August 7, 2016While the aftermath of McGregors words was fun while it lasted, smart fans of WWE quickly circled back to the original question.Had McGregor, just three years after making his UFC debut and skyrocketing to worldwide fame, taken a page from the scripted world of pro wrestling by drumming up a false beef? Or taking it even further, was this the beginning of a tease toward a future leap into the squared circle?The answer could very likely be yes to both. McGregor is a genius marketer who sees his star extending way beyond the walls of the UFC Octagon. He also has a recent history of pulling this exact type of stunt, having done so just four months ago.Unhappy with being asked to fly from his training camp in Iceland to Las Vegas to promote a UFC 200 main event slot, McGregor took the sporting world hostage on April 19 with a simple tweet teasing that he was willing to walk away from the sport.I have decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch yas later.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) April 19, 2016While McGregor was pulled from the card as punishment, he was smart enough to prevent his name from ever leaving the headlines over the next few months. He did so by constantly teasing the idea of a real boxing match against retired champion Floyd Mayweather despite still being under contract with the UFC.McGregor is crazy enough -- and the potential for a life-altering payday large enough -- that his intentions to make the fight were likely very real. Even if thats untrue, he used the attention and nonstop media spin (to the point of nausea) as a means to further extend his brand into new fan bases.Its very likely he is attempting to do the same with WWE. Not to mention, it would be hard to believe McGregor would have a beef with WWE superstars in general -- not only because hes a smart enough businessman, but because of a brief moment in the aftermath of his infamous retirement tweet.WWE superstar Becky Lynch, who like McGregor is a native of Ireland, tweeted back to him in April with the simple hashtag message of #ComeJoinMeBro. Shortly after, McGregor followed the Twitter accounts of Lynch and WWE executives Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and Shane McMahon, fueling speculation that an alternate career path in WWE could be in the cards should his UFC retirement hoax turn legitimate..@TheNotoriousMMA #ComeJoinMeBro- Becky Lynch (@BeckyLynchWWE) April 19, 2016If youre looking to spin the idea of a conspiracy theory even further, consider this.Its unlikely that Lesnar, under contract with the WWE, was allowed to make his one-off return at UFC 200 without WWE chairman Vince McMahon getting something large in return. McMahon, like McGregor, is too good of a businessman for anything this significant to be done in charity, especially considering the gamble WWE was taking ahead of SummerSlam (and the negative press it ultimately endured following Lesnars pair of doping violations).Initially, it was assumed the compensation that WWE was presumed to receive was monetary, which made sense when a trio of SummerSlam commercials ran during the UFC 200 broadcast. But what if the services of Lesnar were traded to the UFC in exchange for the use of a star fighter in the future?The WWE created crossover headlines when former UFC champion Ronda Rousey appeared in a memorable skit at WrestleMania 31 in 2015. Will McGregor become the next to follow suit -- presumably at WrestleMania 33 next April -- with his recent remarks planting the seed for a red-hot angle to come?One thing we do know is a surprise appearance at SummerSlam in Brooklyn, New York, one night after McGregors career-defining rematch with Diaz in Las Vegas, is most likely out of the question. But the sooner we come to the conclusion that were all being worked, and allow ourselves to submit to the necessary suspension of disbelief that comes with being a fan of pro wrestling, the easier it is to realize that anything is possible.

Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium.

Colton McCarthy scored twice, Brayden Point had a goal and two assists, and Jack Rodewald also scored for the Warriors (15-35-9), who were 2 for 5 on the power play. Mark Messier Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Ty Rattie Jersey . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. Moeens mystery The fifth ball of the 148th over from Moeen Ali disturbed the surface and spun sharply into Jayant Yadav. The following ball, once again, disturbed the surface but went straight after pitching. While the ball turning sharply after hitting a patch is understandable, its quite rare to see the ball go straight on. Its only fair to assume that theres enough help on the pitch for the spinners to exploit provided theyre accurate.Rashid pays for lack of accuracy Two deliveries by Adil Rashid to Jayant Yadav in the 144th over highlighted how lack of accuracy plays a part in spinners struggling even on helpful surfaces. The first ball was a full ball right under Jayants bat and he drove it for a four. The following ball was a half-tracker, which Jayant dispatched for another boundary through backward point. If you were to err as a spinner, its imperative to err on the fuller side, for dropping short is an open invitation.Bowling in the rough is an art Its one thing attacking the rough created outside a right-handers leg-stump and quite another knowing how to do it effectively. The trick is to hit the length that makes it impossible for the batsman to go on the back foot. Its also important to hit the line thats at least a foot and half outside leg, for that allows the capptain to set a six-three leg-side field.dddddddddddd While Rashid tried his hand at this tactic, he was not consistent enough. That forced Cook to have four fielders on the off side. Indian batsmen were able to play off the back foot and also, the absence of a fielder at short midwicket allowed easy singles.Lower-order defiance gives Kohli options India started the second innings with fast bowlers from both ends. The move worked as it produced a wicket in the first over itself. Its likely R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja may have been given the new ball had India managed a lead of just 100 or thereabouts. The cushion of extra hundred runs allows the captain various options to explore.Sometimes playing straight is not the best option When theres as much turn as there is at the Wankhede, playing spin with the straight bat and down the ground isnt the best option. Even though the Indian spinners constantly bowled the fuller length, the turn and bite off the pitch made it impossible to play down the ground. The ideal way is to either use the depth of the crease (like Jonny Bairstow did against Ashwin) or play across the line like Joe Root did against Jadeja.
