UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor has proven that he can throw down efficiently at both featherweight and lightweight, and one can assume he’d do well in welterweight. That’s why when he has to sign the dotted line to square off with Floyd Mayweather Jr. for the biggest fight in the history of combat sports, he’s not sweating what weight limit he has to cut to in order to make it happen.
Coach John Kavanagh has revealed that he believes the fight is on, and informed Fox Sports Australia that the idea of a fight at 147 pounds is “being thrown around” before explaining how it’s all playing out right now:
“Like you said, there’s a lot of fingers in the pie in this one. There’s different promotions, different organizations, different commissions that are involved. But as far as I’m concerned, I really believe it’s going to happen this year, and that’s the mindset I have. So, let the people in the suits worry about the paperwork. We’re training for it.”
