The UFC’s lightweight champion took to his official Instagram once again to point out the flaws he sees in each of his possible opponents’ overall game.
It would appear as though the always-elusive lightweight champion of the world Conor McGregor is finally settling back into his training. I mean, it’s hard to know how much or how little he has been doing ever since his August meeting with Floyd Mayweather but judging on the tidbits we are being fed by the man himself, it looks as though he is edging towards his return.
Yesterday we were treated to some shots of the Irishman training with his long-time wrestling coach Sergey Pikulskiy at SBG Dublin and now, with the world waiting anxiously for word on his next step, Conor doubled down on his belief that each of his prospective opponents remain a level below him.
Nate Diaz, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Tony Ferguson, Max Holloway and even Tyron Woodley are among the names thrown around for the return of the ‘Notorious’ one, but with us now delving deeper into 2018, I think it’s fair to say that the fighting world is collectively losing their patience with the man who was involved in one of the most lucrative combat sporting events of all-time just under a half-year ago.
UFC 205, the event that saw McGregor defeat Eddie Alvarez to win his 155lb belt, was over 14 months ago and with the division well and truly on hold, do not be surprised to see some major movement one way or another over the course of the coming weeks.
