UFC megastar Conor McGregor will be fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight title on Oct 6. for UFC 229. Speaking to The Mac Life, Conor McGregor has since come forward to reveal his thoughts on potential opponents after “The Eagle” on Saturday night.
“I’ve already been mapping out what I want to do next. I know there’s Pettis and Ferguson in the co-main. Originally, about a month or two ago in preparation for this, or when that fight got announced as co-main, I was like, ‘If Khabib bottles this fight, like he has bottled many fights before, if he bottles this one, I don’t think I give a (expletive) about – no disrespect to those other two – I don’t give a (expletive) about those other two, to step in,’ and I think I would probably have just disappeared back into the shadows and got that man somewhere else outside of here. But now that I’m here and back and I’m close, I think if he didn’t show up, I think I would take a fight against either one of those. But I’m already mapping out what’s next in my head.
“I know Dustin and Nate is competing, and I know the 170-pound belt has also just been defended, and I know Tyron, the current welterweight champ, is itching for that one like they all (expletive) are. I know Georges is test-cutting to 155. I know everyone is around looking for it, so, man, I’m here and I’m ready, so let’s see what happens. I’ve got my eye on everyone.”
