Former Top Fighting Championship (UFC) light-weight winner Conor McGregor, who also held gold at 145 kilos, is also no stranger to the welterweight division, even though we ought to count on “Notorious” to keep put for the foreseeable potential.
“I will dedicate to the 155-pound division for 2021,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. “Some great matchups to be had in this article, as properly as unfinished business enterprise. I will display the earth when all over again who I am, and what I’m about. Trust that!”
The ability-punching Irishman will make his lightweight return versus previous featherweight foe and prime-ranked 155-pound contender Dustin Poirier at some point in early 2021, although a day and location have yet to be uncovered.
Just after that? Sounds like more rematches are afoot.
“For confident I would be intrigued in operating it again with Max (Holloway),” he ongoing.
McGregor holds a 2013 determination get over Holloway adopted by a 2014 technological knockout victory around Poirier, but lovers have been most vocal about his loss (and subsequent win) from Nate Diaz.
“Excellent fighter,” McGregor explained about Diaz. “The trilogy will be of epic proportions when it goes down. Nathan, and his battling variations, are never ever significantly from my thoughts all through my possess procedures. When it comes about, I’m completely ready.”
McGregor also referred to as Diaz the hardest fighter he’s ever faced.
Unfortunately, “Notorious” has only competed 2 times in excess of the past 4 several years, spending most of his battling prime currently being rich and arrogant, which I guess is each individual fighter’s desire when they embark on a job in UFC so it is difficult to maintain that towards him.
Just really hard not to picture what McGregor could have done as an active, full-time fighter.
