Conor McGregor moved to Instagram and previewed the sports collaboration that was in progress. UFC's superstar has announced Reebok Tracksuit to his fan base of around 37 million followers. Reebok has expressed interest in working with Connor McGregor from the beginning of the fighting game.Conor McGregor: Don't slow downToday, The Notorious One is the largest single entity in MMA and shows no signs of slowing down. Conor McGregor adds to his long list of commercial projects outside the appraiser. The timing of the announcement looks totally bizarre after just days of reports that UFC and Reebok will part ways. According to Ariel Helwani of ESPN, UFC may consider different options in the coming new year.“In an interview with @LeBatardShow earlier today, Dana White said that the Reebok deal will end, at the end of this year, and they are talking to companies about a new deal,” Halawani said on Twitter. "I heard the same thing. For the time being, we won't be surprised if the two sides separate."Reebok: A Brief HistoryReebok mainly entered the field of combat sports when it entered into a clothing deal with UFC in 2015. The promotion was looking at various ways to simplify sports, and they went on to a uniform clothing line. Per Dana White has reviewed several options but Reebok was at the top of the ranking. Reebok distinguished itself as it looked forward to organizing combat sportswear for men and women.Moreover, since the time of the partnership, it has been reported that athletes like Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor will have a personal line.The partnership between UFC and Reebok came with its fair share of complications. Many fighters have strongly opposed the merger since its official announcement. The general consensus was that a unified deal would result in significant losses in terms of personal care. Not to mention that many fighters claimed to have lost 6-digit income from former existing sponsors in light of the new deal.It seems that regardless of the UFC's future with Reebok, Conor McGregor continues to expand beyond the appraiser. In addition, the McGregor star continues to burn brightly even after apparently turning away from the appraiser.Also Read: Khabib Nurmagomedov VS Justin Gaethje at UFC 253

UFC's Leon Edwards took to Twitter and shared a training video in which he looked great. "Rocky" has expressed its desire to compete against the winner of Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal at UFC 251. The scheduled title battle was announced on the short notice and will be a major feature of Yas Island Fight.The Leon Edwards's state of UFC is best described as yet troubled, to say the least. The Welterweight opponent was in a state of ripping within the promotional offer with 8 consecutive professional victories. Not to mention that he scored victories over Rafael Dos Anjos, Gunnar Nelson, and Donald Cerrone.His last defeat in December 2015 was the undisputed champion, Kamaru Usman. However, his vast autobiography failed to help him capture a clear path for Welterweight gold. Leon Edwards: A "rocky" periodMoreover, his linear and non-controversial approach within the appraiser failed to attract the fighting fans. With powerful draws like Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal on top of the heap, Edwards faded into the background.MMA fans and experts believe that he will finally get a call to put his winning streak to the test in May. As talks began about negotiations with superstar Jorge Masvidal, many believed that Edwards would be called.The 170-pound stack section may seek clarity after UFC 251 in Abu Dhabi. The general consensus surrounding the fight is that the direction of division depends on the winner. Leon Edwards will watch while Kamaru Usman defends his world title against BMF at Jorge Masvidal.As Gilbert Burns' career is revived, Rocky Edwards 18-3 has more competition to advance. With current division expectations, the inevitable conclusion is that you will have to return to action. Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to its next step forward.Also Read: I will bless him for 24 minutes.- Kamaru Usman warns Jorge Masvidal before UFC 251
