“Stormin” Norman Parke may only be a couple of weeks removed from his bout at #UFCLondon, but the Northern Irishman is keen to line up his next bout and has a few big names in mind.
First up Parke called out Gilbert Burns for a fight at #UFC200. The pair were due to fight back in January 2015 but Burns withdrew due to injury and was replaced by Francisco Trinaldo, who edged out Parke in a split decision win.

And most recently Parke has gone after Joe Lauzon and Nik Lentz. Parke was respectful in his callout of Lauzon but a lot more direct towards Lentz as you can see from the tweet below. Lentz has been calling out Conor McGregor since his loss to Nate Diaz at #UFC196 and it seems that Parke is keen to step in and take the fight if Lentz is willing to accept.
Hey you mcgregor wannabe @NikLentz. how about you get shaped up for international fight week.. If you beat me then u get to fight ur idol!!

At the time of writing no response has come from the Lentz camp and no fights have been signed for Norman.
