Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor “Notorious” McGregor is finally getting his wish. The UFC champion is set to face off against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Aug. 26 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now, with the fight creeping ever closer to fruition, SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh has come forward with his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s progression in his training for the match.
In an interview with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, as transcribed by MMA Mania, Kavanagh explained that he believes McGregor is very close to be being prepared to face off against the boxing phenom.
“We have two more weeks in Ireland, then the guys will head to Las Vegas. We’ll then have six week in Vegas before the fight, but I watched the session today and said we would be ready in three weeks.” He said.
