Editors note: This item was posted before Conor McGregors victory at UFC 205. Corey Davis Titans Jersey .Conor McGregor is a clearly a man of many talents. And finding a way to repeatedly outdo himself is surely one of them.In January 2015, when McGregor leaped out of the Octagon following a knockout win in Boston to confront then-featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the crowd, it instantly felt like a watershed moment for his career and the sport as a whole. The UFC recognized it -- and booked a world media tour off it.The same can be said about McGregors performance against Chad Mendes at UFC 189 later that year -- smiling like a madman, challenging Mendes to come forward. A 13-second knockout of Aldo for the featherweight title came next. Then a Nate Diaz rivalry.A chance at a second title awaits McGregor in New York on Saturday when he faces lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.Every event has felt bigger than the one before it, which is not a given in this sport. But how will that continue if he wins on Saturday? Can it even? How do you top a second title, on a historic card, at a higher weight?Here are five possible options for McGregors next move, which could keep his stock trending upward.Challenge the winner of welterweight champion?Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen ThompsonWhats better than two titles? Three titles. And it wasnt long ago, at all, that McGregor was openly talking about beating former welterweight champ Robbie Lawler.But those back-to-back fights at 170 pounds against Diaz, who is not even a natural welterweight, seemed to change McGregors mindset on the weight class. Its not that he wont ever go there again, but perhaps facing the No. 1-ranked guy is not the route to go.Attempting to win UFC titles in three weight classes would be so massive that its almost an unfathomable feat. But this path feels (and always has felt) a little crazy.Nate Diaz trilogyIf my recollection is correct, the first two werent bad. And they also performed well at the box office. According to the UFC, they actually account for two of the top three pay-per-view sellers in company history. So Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz is a proven cash cow.If were assuming McGregor wins at UFC 205, that means a trilogy bout would be for a lightweight title, which sweetens an already sweet pot.Diaz already has said hes not interested in fighting anyone but McGregor. And after their rematch at UFC 202, McGregor referenced a trilogy fight but said it would take place at 155 pounds.This fight always will be there for the UFC, though, and it might not make sense to cram the whole thing into such a short time frame.Nick DiazThis one writes itself. It then edits itself, publishes itself, designs a fancy cover for itself, and sells itself.Nates older brother, Nick, is one of the most polarizing lightning rods in the sports history. Stick him next to McGregor and anything can happen. Security didnt even let Nick in the building when Nate and McGregor weighed in for their last fight in August.The issue here, of course, is also what would make it great. McGregor taking on the older brother of his biggest rival to date would be a fascinating narrative -- but since Nick is Nates older brother, its a little doubtful hed take a big payday away from him.Just like Nate called Georges St-Pierre one of his brothers fights, Nick might feel the same way about McGregor. But speaking of St-Pierre ...Georges St-PierreIt feels like a long, long time ago St-Pierre showed up cageside at McGregors first fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 196 in March.When something like that happens, speculation is sure to catch fire -- and it did. Fans immediately envisioned posters of McGregor and St-Pierre squaring off. And even though you figure that fight would have to take place at 170 pounds, you also figure its one McGregor would move up for.But McGregors loss to Diaz, the subsequent rematch and St-Pierres contract situation with the UFC (the two sides were unable to come to a deal that would have brought him back at UFC 206) have made the whole thing a bit clouded.At the end of the day, its a money fight for both and thats enough to make it a very real possibility. But theres also one more option for McGregor ...Take a breakMcGregor zigs when others zag. When Aldo pulled out of their scheduled title fight at UFC 189 last year, McGregor took a fight against Mendes and risked his title shot, something others wouldnt have done. He did the same thing in March, when he fought Diaz after Rafael dos Anjos got injured.He has kept up an insane pace for two years. We tend to break up things in calendar years, but if you look strictly at the past 12 months for McGregor, youd be looking at a year that is arguably one of the most unbelievable in combat sports history.So, although it goes against traditional thinking, consider a 12-month break to recharge and let the chips fall -- they do say absence makes the heart grow fonder. And McGregor has teased some kind of announcement after this weekend.McGregor has said he always intended to set the game on fire and then be gone. Maybe gone can be applied in a temporary sense. Hes a brilliant businessman, and part of business is supply and demand. Remove supply, demand tends to go up. Adoree Jackson Youth Jersey . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. Adoree Jackson Jersey . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. http:///...-Jersey.html?cat=976 . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. Josh McCown will start at quarterback for the winless Cleveland Browns?on Sunday against the New York Giants.Coach Hue Jackson said that although Robert Griffin III?will practice, he has not been cleared for contact or to play in a game. Rookie Cody Kessler had his second concussion in five games and is out indefinitely.We know Cody is in concussion protocol, and our medical professionals will advise us on the best way to move forward with him, Jackson said.Jackson also said he was not pleased with comments from receiver Terrelle Pryor, who said after Sundays loss to Pittsburgh that having the quarterbacks hit as often as they were was bullcrap and that he was tired of seeing the quarterbacks get hit.Because thats not Terrelles job, Jackson said. I know hes frustrated and we all are, and no doubt we need to protect our quarterback. But thats not for him to say. Lets focus on ourselves and support each other. Thats what good teams do, and thats what were going to work to become.Jackson said he had a talk with Pryor on Monday.He was awesome, as always, Jackson said. I think sometimes, like most people, after the game in the heat of the moment, youre a little frustrated and maybe you say some things you wish you hadnt. I understand its coming from a good place. I know that no one wants to see our quarterbacks get hit. But I think everybodys got to let me be the judge of that.The Steelers had eighht sacks with 14 hits on Kessler and McCown. Adoree Jackson Womens Jersey. In some cases, the Steelers won matchups against linemen. At times it seemed the quarterbacks held the ball too long. And on some plays the Steelers had the advantage of a powerful linebacker being blocked by a back.We all have a part in it, Jackson said.The coach seemed less upset by comments from Joe Thomas, who said the teams offseason strategy was to let experienced linemen go and that then you got to lie in the bed that you made.Me and Joe have a great relationship, Jackson said. Again, I just think all of our players are frustrated. They want to win. I think its coming from a good place.Jackson said emphatically that this was not a sign that the stress of being winless was taking a toll on unity.Were going to continue to have each others back, Jackson said. I got to do that better, too. Its an every-day and an every-situation deal for me and this football team. Well work our way through it, and well stay together. Well stay committed, and were going to be better.He added that he firmly believes he is the right person to turn around the Browns.I understand how our fans and all people feel, he said. Im not running from this. Im going to run to it. Im going to deal with it head-on, and Im going to fix this. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
