An interview from a few days back with CW's featherweight champ Jim Alers about his first title defence in a couple of weeks, but he also talks about Dana White's new best mate Conor McGregor and still after settling that score.
When asked about potential future matchups he’d like Alers still has his sights set on a certain ‘Notorious’ Irishman that once held the same belt, and is currently taking the UFC by storm. “I think everyone knows that I would love to put everyone’s thoughts to rest and beat Conor McGregor. I know that I have what it takes to take him down and submit him”
Rest of the article has him talking about winning the belt and then what he thinks about the fight in Cardiff coming up.

If he wins this fight does anyone think UFC might pick him up, think he's 10-1 atm with all 10 wins by stoppage. Even though he's got a past with McGregor UFC would probably ignore that I'd think. Opinions ?
