While it still remains unclear what the future holds for UFC mega-star Conor McGregor, one thing he wants to make known is that he plans on fighting in the new year. Though, in a brand new statement he stops short of saying that fight will be in the UFC.
Taking to his own website, the UFC lightweight champion released the following statement just moments ago:
“My focus is getting back into the right ring or octagon. 2017 was historic.” McGregor said of his wild 2017. “I have transcended both the sport of MMA and boxing.”
“At this stage of my career, as it has been for the majority of my UFC career, potential opponents must lobby for fights with me.We could see Conor McGregor anywhere. I run the fight game, the fashion game, the whiskey game, or whatever the next business endeavour might be.
“I have every intention of fighting in 2018 if my compensation and business development endeavours accurately reflect my influence on combat sports.”
Where should Conor turn his focus in 2018?
