He also noted that he would bet anything on it.

“It’s the obvious fight, as his coach and as a fan. As a fan of MMA, it’s the fight I want to see as well. I would almost bet anything — almost bet anything — that fight happens before the end of the year. I can’t imagine it not happening,” he said.

McGregor has not fought in the UFC since his victory at Lightweight over Eddie Alvarez a couple of years back. He, however, had a crossover boxing showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Khabib Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, was crowned the UFC Lightweight champion recently when he got the better of Al Iaquinta.
