Last month former two-division world champion Conor McGregor announced his retirement from the sport for the third time on social media.

The move came after Conor McGregor knocked out Donald Cerrone in just 40-seconds ending his fifteen-month layoff. McGregor had told following his UFC 246 win in January that he was going to fight three times in 2020.

He told me that he was hoping to return back to the cage in July. However, his retirement has put everything on hold. He wanted to fight Justin Gaethje, who instead went to fight Tony Ferguson on a short-notice replacement. Gaethje knocked out Ferguson in the fifth round at UFC 249.

While McGregor may have retired from the sport, it hasn’t stopped him from training. The Irishmen took to Instagram and shared a video of him hitting the heavy bag.

Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje was close to being done

During the Instagram live session earlier this month, John Kavanagh stated that he if McGregor does decide to return to the UFC, he would like to see him fight Gaethje, Diaz Trilogy and Khabib rematch.

Three fights I would like to see, I’ll give you my top three. [It] would be Gaethje, I would love that fight, it would be awesome. Diaz, the trilogy, and [the] Khabib rematch,” he explained. “They would be the three fights I would be very interested in.”

I think the Gaethje fight is probably the best fight I could imagine because he has the style that really matches well with Conor,” Kavanagh said. “Gaethje likes to march forward. He sits down on his shots, he throws heavy shots. He doesn’t seem to care about being hit, he likes coming forward. Conor’s always done very well as a counter fighter. Although he does walk forward, he responds to people’s attacks very well.”


It was close to being done,” Kavanagh claimed (via-MMA World). “It’s kinda sad now that it didn’t happen. We have obviously the coronavirus and how everything went with the world. I think we could’ve been getting ready for that fight any week now if things hadn’t have happened the way they did. But here we are, so all we can do is speculate.”

Who do you guys want to see Conor McGregor fight next?
