However, this is only the first fight in the series of fights that McGregor will take part in 2020 and according to his coach Owen Roddy, a fight will Jorge Masvidal is also in books.

McGregor’s coach Owen Roddy revealed that after the fight with Cerrone, the plan is to fight BMF champion Jorge Masvidal.

That’s what he wants to do and there’s one thing I always say: when Conor says he wants to do something if anyone is going to do it, he can. But, let’s not look past Cerrone. He’s a tricky opponent and he’s a veteran with tricks up his sleeve. But Conor going in there the way he looks now, he should do well.”

Looking at the second fight with Nate Diaz fight, that’s what you’re going to see,” Roddy said.

It’s that Conor. He’s been at this weight for a while. He’s used to training at this weight; grappling and sparring, running and doing the miles. His body knows how to move that weight around now and he knows how to move it around quickly. There’s no killing himself to make weight and there’s no limit calories in the last three weeks of camp trying to get down to weight…that’s gone. Now, he’s just focusing on his training, doing what he’s doing, looking at his opponent and breaking him down and dismantling him in the fight.” Roddy concluded. (H/T –
