Roddy was recently in a conversation with noted combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani of ESPN. He revealed that the plan is still for McGregor to come back and fight on a UFC fight card on July 11. He also said revealed that former WSOF lightweight champion Justin Gaethje might be the one who McGregor faces next. Here’s what he had to say:

Most definitely. That’s the plan hopefully. Bring the UFC back to life as well with all these shows being canceled and stuff like that, I think a fight on July 11 would bring the UFC back to life and get everybody back on track. So my fingers are crossed and I’m sure the rest of the world fingers are crossed for that fight. Anyone to be honest but you know, maybe Gaethje. There is a lot of talk about Gaethje. I mean, he’s an exciting fighter, Gaethje. I would like to see it, I’m sure you’d like to see it, and I’m sure the rest of the world would like to see it. So yeah, potentially that, but to be honest, anyone. I know Conor is raring to go and everyone will be raring to go by the time July comes around.
