    Approximately two weeks away from his rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on Aug. Youth Durham Smythe Jersey . 20, Conor McGregor has offered one of his infamous predictions.During an international media call on Friday, McGregor (19-3) predicted he will knock out Diaz (19-10) inside the second round when they meet later this month at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.The Irish star is known for making pre-fight predictions, several of which hes made good on. He correctly predicted a first-round knockout against Jose Aldo at UFC 194 in December. In July 2015, UFC president Dana White said McGregor offered to bet $3 million he would knock out Chad Mendes in the second round at UFC 189 -- which he later did.Diaz put an end to that run in March, when he submitted McGregor via rear-naked choke in the second round of a welterweight fight at UFC 196 -- a fight he accepted on just 11 days notice. McGregor said he plans to turn the tables at UFC 202.I think I just got into saying Id stop the guy in the first round, said McGregor, who called first-round finish over Diaz in March. If I really look at it, he has a solid chin. Hes durable and very experienced. He has the size and the weight on me. I think that was the wrong thing, to go in expecting the first round.I did go out there to KO him in the first round. I marched forward, backed him up against the fence and teed off on his head. I did what I said I would do, but respect to him, he stuck it out. He weathered the storm. This time, Im still going to march forward and bust him up, theres just going to be much more in my tank. Im going to be a lot more prepared for a man who can stay in there with me.Even still, I struggle to give him past round three. If I was to make a prediction, which I will right now, I believe I will repay the favor and KO him inside the second round.The loss to Diaz was the first of McGregors UFC career. The 28-year-old won his first seven fights in the Octagon, including six via knockout.After winning the featherweight championship late last year, McGregor was initially booked to a lightweight championship fight against then-champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196. Dos Anjos was forced to pull out of the fight due to a foot injury, however, and was eventually replaced by Diaz. McGregor agreed to have the fight at 170 pounds, due to the late change.Rather than go back to his original division and defend the title, McGregor called for an immediate rematch with Diaz. A Dublin native, he has spent the last month in Las Vegas preparing for the fight.Realistically, I should be a two-weight UFC world champion, McGregor said. If I fought Rafael dos Anjos, if he didnt p---- out of that last one and showed up, the shots I cracked Nate with in the first eight minutes would have KOd Rafael dos Anjos stiff. Thats no question. I would be sitting here right now as a two-weight world champion.But I dont dwell on that. Im happy this happened, because it forced me to look at my preparation, look at the route I was going on. It forced me to reassess. Im happy this happened. Make no mistake, this one means a hell of a lot to me. This one means more than any amount of money or gold combined. I gave up a hell of a lot of money, gave up Hollywood opportunities, for this contest. I wanted to restrict the media. That should tell you how much this fight means to me. Ive been preparing accordingly.McGregor has already stated he would have interest in a trilogy fight against Diaz, should he even the series at 1-1. For his part, Diaz has said any fighter would want a rematch against someone who beat he or she lost to -- meaning, a McGregor win on Aug. 20 could set the stage for a potential trilogy fight. Oddsmakers currently have McGregor slightly favored to win. Cheap Stitched Dolphins Jerseys . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. Youth Jerome Baker Jersey . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans believe theyve taken a very big step in winning consecutive games for the first time in more than two seasons.The Cleveland Browns head home still looking for their first victory this season.Marcus Mariota threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for 64 more as the Titans held off Cleveland for their first home win this season 28-26 on Sunday .Now the Titans are eager to build with two more games left in this home stand.We have more steps to take, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said.The Titans (3-3) also notched their first win at home against a team not the Jacksonville Jaguars since the end of the 2013 season and their first winning streak since the end of the 2013 season.Mularkey is 3-3 this season, matching the win total his predecessor managed in 23 games before being fired last November.At 0-6, Cleveland is mired in its worst start since the 1999 expansion Browns lost their first seven. First-year coach Hue Jackson said his Browns kept playing hard.We just have to do better, Jackson said.Here are some things to know about the Titans and Browns:AFC SOUTH RUMBLEThe Titans will host Indianapolis and Jacksonville within the next 11 days, giving Tennessee a chance to push its way near the top of a division Houston won last season with a 9-7 record. Thats a big challenge for a team that is 3-16 on its home field since the end of the 2013 season. But Mularkey hopes this win builds the Titans confidence.It cannot hurt you, Mularkey said. Its part of what were trying to do here, the process of trying to build this thing, you need things like this to happen for you. ... Thats a win, regardless of the final score.CROWELL SHUT DOWNBrowns running back Isaiah Crowell ranked second in the NFL two weeks ago only to be shut down by New England a week ago with only 22 yards on 17 carries. He did even worse against the Titans with only 16 yards on nine carries. The Titans held Cleveland to 40 yards rushing on 15 attempts, forcing the Browns to put the ball in Cody Kesslers hands. Cheap Dolphins Jerseys. The rookie, knocked out of last weeks 33-13 loss to New England with an injured chest, threw 41 passes for a career-high 336 yards and two TDs. He became the third Browns rookie to throw for at least 300 yards and was second only to Brandon Weeden, who threw for 364 yards on Dec. 2, 2012, at Oakland.MARIOTAS TARGETMariotas longest pass Sunday was a 48-yard touchdown to wide receiver Kendall Wright, who missed the first three games recovering from a preseason hamstring injury. Wright finished with eight catches for 133 yards, the second-best performance of his career. It also marked the first 100-yard receiving game for this franchise since Dec. 20, 2015.SACK TIMEThe Titans came in tied for eighth in the NFL with 12 sacks this season, and they added six more by six different players taking advantage of a reshuffled Browns offensive line missing left guard Joe Bitonio. Linebacker Brian Orakpo got one in the third quarter for his seventh this season, giving him at least one sack in five straight games and matching his total for all of last season. Coach (Dick) LeBeau is dialing them up, and he knows whats effective so we are just making it work, linebacker Avery Williamson said. Hope it continues.BATTERED BROWNSNot only did Clevelands skid grow longer, so did the Browns injury list. A team that came in with 12 players on injured reserve or the non-football injury list added defensive back Jordan Poyer with a lacerated kidney. Poyer was taken to a Nashville hospital during the game after being injured trying to tackle on a punt return. Obviously, we all know thats pretty serious, so well see where he is from there, Jackson said.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Teresa M.
