If you’re a Conor McGregor fan, you hope 2017 isn’t over just yet because you’re looking to end on a higher note.
That’s because it looks like we may go the entire year without seeing him step back into the octaogon.
After the much anticipated Floyd Mayweather mega-fight, where he was stopped he via TKO, McGregor is sitting on a $100 million dollar payday, so the sky seems to be the limit for the UFC champion.
In a new sitdown in London, McGregor’s manager Audie Attar gave Sky Sports an update on what’s next for Conor:
“There are all these different things that pop up in the media – some true, some not true,”
“As it relates to mixed martial arts, I think Conor has been clear that he wants to come back and fight for the UFC. So there is no question that is going to happen.
“Who that is going to be and what is next is still to be determined. We are just starting to talk and explore all the options. But Conor is a draw. He does record-breaking gates and pay-per-views.
“At the end of the day, it does not matter what he does – whether it is WWE or the UFC – he is going to have a record-breaking event.
“Tony came out victorious. I represent Tony (as well as McGregor), so I was really happy for Tony to accomplish that. You have the trilogy fight with Nate Diaz. You even have boxers like Manny Pacquiao knocking on the door. I’ve said this before in many interviews – Conor has earned the right [to choose] and the numbers don’t lie. He is weighing his options. He is looking at all the different options and opportunities that are there for him but there is no question that he wants to come back and compete.”
