Next week’s halt lightweight pretension quarrel between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee could offer as a de facto rejecting bout, with a leader removing Conor McGregor next.
But that’s only one probability for McGregor, who summarized countless options for his subsequent quarrel during a QA in Glasgow on Friday. Those possibilities might distortion in UFC or in boxing, nonetheless we doubt it will be a latter.
“There’s an halt belt on a line right now (between Ferguson and Lee) — that’s an option,” McGregor said, via MMAFighting.com. “Of march a Nate Diaz trilogy quarrel is there. Maybe one of these fighting guys … maybe (Paulie) Malignaggi would come over and do an MMA hitch … or Floyd (Mayweather), maybe we could tempt Floyd back.”
Okay, we know McGregor was only floating ideas here, yet we can see conjunction Malignaggi agreeing to quarrel McGregor in a octagon nor Mayweather entrance behind for a rematch. That said, we were among those who doubted Mayweather-McGregor would ever be made.
McGregor sparred with Malignaggi in his credentials for Mayweather.
McGregor-Diaz III would amour a UFC community. Diaz submitted McGregor in a second turn of their initial quarrel (March 5, 2016), while McGregor won around infancy preference in their second (Aug. 20, 2016).
Undefeated lightweights Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje were also among intensity opponents mentioned by McGregor. Gaethje is set to take on Eddie Alvarez during The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale on Dec. 1.
McGregor seems enticed by a payday a super-fight opposite Georges St-Pierre would bring, yet he threw shade during a former middleweight’s comeback.
“It’s another income fight, even yet he’s been retired,” McGregor pronounced of a intensity hitch with St-Pierre. “I don’t know. we consider he’s going to get his donkey whupped by (Michael) Bisping (at UFC 217 on Nov. 4 during Madison Square Garden). To be honest, we consider it’s a mistake for him to step in during that weight after so prolonged out.”
The dignified of this story? We have no thought who McGregor is going to quarrel next.
