UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has not competed inside the octagon since his majority decision victory to Nate Diaz at UFC 202. Now, with the fighters 1-1 in their rivalry, it would appear that Conor McGregor is interested in a third match up to settle the score.
In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, McGregor’s manager Audie Attar explained that the fighter is interested in a trilogy match up.
“He wants that trilogy (with Diaz). You’ve got Khabib calling him out, then you obviously have Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee who are fighting for the interim lightweight title. You have Max Holloway, who is the 145 champ now, who Conor beat after blowing out his ACL at the beginning of the fight. You have options, and he loves mixed martial arts.
“Everyone is like, ‘Oh, he’s going to retire – he made so much money.’ He’s ambitious. He’s super ambitious, and he loves to fight. He loves to compete and he’s a superb professional athlete. So there’s much more of Conor McGregor that everybody will see, and we’ll see what’s next.”
