Conor McGregor’s return to the octagon has sparked speculation about potential matchups, and one intriguing possibility is a title shot against UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev. Let’s dive into the details.

Conor McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) is set to face Michael Chandler (23-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) in the main event at UFC 303 on June 29. If McGregor secures a win, he could find himself in the title picture.

Islam Makhachev’s Manager Ali Abdelaziz’s Take

Ali Abdelaziz, Islam Makhachev’s manager, weighed in on the situation. He acknowledged McGregor’s star power and the financial benefits of a potential matchup. Abdelaziz told Submission Radio , “Conor might go there and knock out Chandler in the first round, and after that, he’s one of the biggest stars in the sport.” He added that if McGregor expressed interest in a title shot, Makhachev wouldn’t decline the fight. It’s a big-name bout with significant financial implications.

 

The McGregor Factor

Despite their history of trash talk, Abdelaziz recognizes McGregor’s status as a “massive star.” He emphasized that the UFC prioritizes money and business, making a McGregor-Makhachev clash appealing from a promotional standpoint. However, Abdelaziz also expressed concerns about McGregor’s focus and work ethic, given his recent partying and lifestyle choices.

The Potential Showdown

If McGregor secures a win over Chandler, the UFC could seriously consider booking him against Islam Makhachev. The clash of styles—McGregor’s striking prowess versus Makhachev’s grappling skills—would undoubtedly generate buzz. Whether it happens remains to be seen, but the possibility is tantalizing for fight fans.

while Abdelaziz may not be McGregor’s biggest fan personally, he recognizes the business potential of a McGregor-Makhachev title fight. As the UFC continues to prioritize blockbuster matchups, this one could be a lucrative and exciting addition to the lightweight division.
