McGregor Kills Those Pacquiao Rumors, Confirms He’ll Defend His UFC Belt Next

Good news for Conor McGregor fans tired of his delayed UFC return. The reigning UFC lightweight champ just shut down rumors of a return to boxing, stating he wants a real fight for his next combat outing. This all but confirms that his next fight will be in defense of his UFC lightweight belt.

McGregor has been involved in controversy after controversy ever since his boxing debut loss against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

First the UFC star was seen partying in Ibiza getting a little too confrontational with fans inside a night club. Then he caused an international stir when he hopped the Bellator MMA cage, stopped a fight in progress, then slapped an official in the face.

Conor would go on to have a reported gang feud with Irish cartel members, and he even publicly taunted the organization.

Lately though, McGregor returned to training at his home gym at SBG Ireland. Most recently McGregor’s been in New York training with grappling sensation Dillon Danis and Paulo Miyao.

In a new interview Conor McGregor stated, “We’ll see what happens. I think a true fight is what I want to do next. A real fight, what’s a real fight? MMA next.”
