UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will attempt to make history on Nov. Deebo Samuel Super Bowl Jersey . 12, when he challenges Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight championship at UFC 205 in New York -- and he intends to make some type of announcement shortly thereafter.McGregor (20-3) is hoping to become the first athlete to ever hold two UFC titles at the same time. Hes managed to maintain ownership of the featherweight title, despite the fact next weekend will mark his third appearance without a defense.UFC president Dana White has publicly referred to McGregors planned announcement as something out of left field. There have been some reports McGregor intends to take time off after the blockbuster event, but the Irishman downplayed those during a media call on Thursday.I think youre absolutely crazy to even mention a clickbait crowd like that, said McGregor, when asked about a report from Irish Mirror. I mean, the Irish Mirror, what the f--- is that? Who even is that? They dont know s--- about me or what Im doing.Look, stay tuned for what Im announcing but dont be listening to people like that. People like that know nothing about what I do or whats going on here. I will reveal all, in time.Fighting out of Dublin, McGregor, 28, will be stepping into the Octagon for the third time in 2016. He was originally supposed to fight for the lightweight championship in March, but that bout fell through when then-champion Rafael dos Anjos withdrew due to injury.Veteran lightweight Nate Diaz agreed to fill in against McGregor on 11 days notice, and the fight was booked at the welterweight limit of 170 pounds. Diaz upset McGregor with a rear-naked choke in the second round, which ultimately led to a rematch at UFC 202 in August. McGregor won the second fight via unanimous decision.That busy schedule has fed speculation he might wish to take time off, but McGregor refused to confirm anything close to that on the call. He noted several Madison Square Garden records UFC 205 is set to break, according to statements made by White.I dont know whether you can take time off from this life, McGregor said. Ill stay working, stay creating history, stay changing the game. Thats what Ive been doing since Day 1. Now, here we are, close to the New York debut at Madison Square Garden. We broke the [Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier] attendance of 21,000 I believe. Im hearing that we also broke the gate record of $14 million set by Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield.Two amazing contests, two historical fights, and Ive broken both. So, its an honor to do that.The UFC has stated McGregor will vacate either the featherweight or lightweight title should he win on Nov. 12. McGregor, as hes done in the past, suggested on Thursday theres no guarantee he will willingly part ways with one of the belts.Alvarez (28-4), who is seeking his first defense, says it will never reach that point.The guys hes faced are nothing close to the caliber of fighter I am, Alvarez said. He will see the night of the fight, S---, Ive been going up against s----- opponents that were good style matchups and this ones not.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A man took a coconut cream pie from a grocery bag, grabbed Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson from behind and smacked him in the face with it at a charity event, leading the former NBA star to start swinging and then tackle the man who was left battered and facing assault charges.The pie wielder and local activist, Sean Thompson, 32, said Thursday that the mayor overreacted, sending him to the hospital for nine stitches before he went to jail.

Prosecutors will review the case, including the mayors reaction, after receiving the police reports, likely on Friday, district attorney spokeswoman Shelly Orio said.Whether youre hit in the face with a pie or a fist, youve been assaulted and youre generally allowed to respond with similar force, said Rory Little, a former litigator and professor at University of California Hastings College of the Law.Johnsons response probably is not a disproportionate reaction, though it might not be the reaction we want our public officials to have, Little said.Vellucci wrote in an email that he met Thompson five years ago and described him as a nonviolent person who participated in some of the first Black Lives Matter protests in Sacramento in 2014 and in Occupy Sacramento rallies before that.Police and Johnsons chief of staff said Thompson was not previously known to the mayor and his staff.

Cooper contributed to this report.---This story has been corrected to show that the first name of Cres Vellucci was misspelled Chris and that Thompson had injuries around his left eye, not his right.
