A few weeks ago, former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor revealed during a press conference in Russia that he will fight on January 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Although McGregor didn’t reveal the name of his opponent, it’s highly likely that he will fight Donald Cerrone. The Irishmen’ coach John Kavanagh revealed that McGregor will announce the name of his next opponent very soon, but he also didn’t confirm a name yet.

Like Dana said nothing is 100 percent until all contracts are signed. I do, as far as I am aware all parties have agreed more or less in principle,” Kavanagh said to ESPN. “There may be a few kinks to be ironed out. But, as far as I am aware, hopefully, an announcement is imminent.”

I’m just happy to see him back competing and is in a great mindset. We are training away, chipping away. It is 11 weeks tomorrow and ticking all the boxes,” he said of McGregor. “I can’t wait for the announcement so we can be full steam ahead. But, I am sure it is, I actually had in my head maybe during this event they are going to do an ad or something, I don’t know, maybe that is coming.”

For the past few years, McGregor hasn’t looked motivated enough, but for his upcoming January 18 fight, Kavanagh said that McGregor is highly motivated and both of them are on the same page.

I hope so, I hope so. Actions, not words so let’s just do it in 2020. I feel I’ve been talking about it for two years or something. He is very pumped up, I like how is talking about it being a season and has three fights in mind,” Kavanagh said. “First on Jan. 18, then April, then September. I haven’t heard that type of very structured talk for him in a long time. But, let’s do actions not words.” (H/T –
