A motivated Conor McGregor can beat anyone claims his striking coach Owen Roddy.

Conor McGregor made his successful octagon return after a long fifteen-month layoff last Sunday when he faced Donald Cerrone. The fight took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and McGregor knocked out Cerrone in just 40-seconds.

Now that McGregor has made his successful return, fans are wondering as to what could be next for the Irishmen. The fight with Cerrone took place in the welterweight division and McGregor said that he was enjoying fighting at 170lbs.

Conor McGregor Owen Roddy

However, Owen Roddy said that Conor McGregor has been training ferociously and is motivated to the point where he can beat anybody. That is to say, Roddy wants to see Conor continue fighting at welterweight.

I don’t really mind who it is,” Roddy said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “I think Conor going in motivated, enjoying the training, the way he is can beat any of them, I really believe that.”

People were questioning can he carry that weight and that power up into that 170 weight class. But I’ve never seen him so ferocious in there,” Roddy said. “The shots he was throwing when Cerrone hit the ground were ferocious. You know what, not many people on this Earth can take those shots. I think he’s got lots of options. It’s always Conor’s choice. Whoever motivates Conor the most is the fight he will take place.”

Potential fights for Conor McGregor

Roddy also gave a list of potential opponents for McGregor and he said that he wouldn’t mind seeing him fight Masvidal, Diaz and Justin Gaethje.

I wouldn’t mind him at 170lbs like Masvidal has been huge on people’s mind for months and there’s Diaz [Trilogy] again, which could be a big one and then I do like the idea of Gaethje as well.

I know Conor mentioned that he would be ready to go of Ferguson or Khabib dropped out as well,” Roddy concluded. (H/T – BJPENN)

Dana White wants to have a talk with Justin Gaethje

In lead-up to Cerrone vs McGregor, Dana White has repeatedly said that if Conor McGregor wins next, he will be fighting the winner of Khabib vs Tony even if Gaethje has been tearing through the lightweight division.

There’s been all this, ‘What about Justin Gaethje’ stuff. The reality is, me and Justin Gaethje need to sit down and talk face to face and have a meeting,” White said. “So, we’ll probably do that in the next few weeks and sit down with him. I like Gaethje. Gaethje’s a great kid, and he’s a super talented guy, and he and I need to get on the same page.”

Justin Gaethje has been eagerly waiting for a title shot. He is currently on a three-fight winning streak and all his victories have come via first-round knockouts.

Who do you guys want to see Conor McGregor fight next?
