Speaking to TMZ, Justin Gaethje said he wants a crack at the Irish superstar even if it means travelling to Ireland.

There are so many [potential] fights right now, but Conor sounds like he’s coming back, so I’m the man,” Gaethje told TMZ. “If he’s going to fight someone it has to be me.”

Tony [Ferguson] is there but he’s gotta go back and get better. That leaves Conor and me.

It’s the name of the game. I want to fight him in Ireland, though I know it’s not going to happen in Ireland. That’s my dream to go over there and be in that sort of chaos. That’s what fucking wakes me up every day.”

Gaethje said that even though he comes from a wrestling background, he said he wouldn’t count on using it when he fights McGregor. He is ready to stand and trade.

I’m going to go out there and stand,” Gaethje said. “And I’m going to knock him out. If he wants to retire I can help him on his way out.

I wouldn’t be counting on using my wrestling. I just gotta touch him once. Both of us have the skill where we just got to touch you one time. Who fucking knows? This is a crazy sport. [I’ll] go in there and roll those dice. That kind of chaos, I want that in my life.
