The incredibly talented Tracy Lee of Combat Lifestyle was on-hand in Las Vegas this past weekend for UFC 178.

And, thanks to her access, Lee caught the aftermath of Conor McGregor’s win over Dustin Poirier.

The five-minute vido below includes fans going wild in the lobby with Irish flags everywhere. McGregor shows up later during an after-party, still rocking his “ivory” suit.

wanderlei silva

UFC president Dana White addressed the indefinite suspension handed down by the Nevada Athletic Commission to Wanderlei Silva on Tuesday. Silva, who announced his own self-imposed retirement days before the ban, was also fined $70,000.

“I think he was trying to put up a smoke screen. Look over here because he does it a few days before he’s about to go in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission,” White told UFC.com. “The guy ran from a drug test. I’ve been saying it for a long time that he was going to get something serious.”

Silva stated on Twitter that he planned to fight the suspension, which effectively ends his career in the UFC. Despite leaving the promotion due to the decision to not take a drug test and the subsequent ban, White isn’t going to attack “The Axe Murderer.”

“I’ve never said a bad thing about Wanderlei Silva in my life,” he said. “I’ve always respected the guy and there is no way that guy can ever say that myself or Lorenzo Fertitta ever disrespected him. There’s nothing more that needs to be said.”

Silva, who turned 38 years old earlier this year, last fought in March 2013 when he knocked out Brian Stann. His overall MMA record sits at 35-12-1, including highlight wins over Cung Le, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Kazushi Sakuraba and Dan Henderson.

Matt Brown

Hector Lombard sees Matt Brown as the perfect stepping stone to achieving his ultimate wish: a shot at the UFC middleweight championship.

As Brown continues to heal and recover following a loss to Robbie Lawler earlier this year, Lombard is taking to Twitter to call him out:

Lombard (34-4-1) has strung together a pair of wins over Jake Shields and Nate Marquardt. Since signing with the UFC in 2012, he has gone 3-2, with both losses coming via split decision.

Officials previously tried to pair Lombard and Tyron Woodley for Australia later this year, but Woodley declined the fight.

Brown (19-12) had his impressive seven-fight win streak snapped with the loss to Lawler via decision in July.

mark hunt

Mark Hunt has decided to try and play the role of Joe Silva, telling everyone that a meeting with Josh Barnett makes the most sense for his next fight.

In fact, Hunt even has a date and location picked out: November 5 in Sydney, Australia.

Over the weekend, Hunt traveled to Japan and became the first fighter in the UFC to finish Roy Nelson, dropping “Big Country” in the second round. Now, “The Super Samoan” is hopeful for a meeting with Barnett.

The first time they squared off was in 2006 when Barnett defeated Hunt via submission in the quarterfinals of the PRIDE Open Weight Grand Prix.

“I love rematches,” said Hunt, during an interview on The MMA Hour. “I’ve never lost a rematch. Josh Barnett, me and you my friend, we’ve got a date. I want to fight guys in the Top-10. I’d like to fight and get close to that title shot, that’s all I’m interested in.

“(That’s) my whole purpose…to fight for the title.”

Hunt, who turned 40 earlier this year, appeared on his way out of the UFC after a loss to Sean McCorkle in 2010 dropped him to 5-7 overall. He’s since won five of seven, losing only to Junior dos Santos and fighting Antonio Silva to a draw.

“I think I’m on the cusp of getting a title shot, I just need a Top-5 guy,” he said. “I had the shot last time against JDS and he knocked me out. I got back there again, I just need one more fight. I really feel I’m close to a title shot.

“Maybe a Top-5 guy, or a JDA rematch, or Barnett; someone Top-5 and then if I can win, I can get a title shot.”
