Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has dropped a potential bomshell regarding Conor McGregor’s UFC 200 fight.
First up for McGregor is a lightweight title bout at UFC 196 with Rafael dos Anjos – which represents probably the only run of consecutive title fights at different weights in the promotion’s history.
Both the Irishman himself and his coach John Kavanagh have raised the possibility of a welterweight title charge at some stage during his career.
“I’ve said from the beginning that welterweight may not be out of the question”, Kavanagh wrote on the42.ie.
“One of Conor’s main sparring partners, Gunnar Nelson, is a welterweight, so Conor is very used to that feel. I would not be at all surprised if we’re preparing to go for a third belt a year from now.”
