For the time being, Connor McGregor seems to be leaving the Lightweight category behind him.
Earlier this afternoon, “The Notorious,” a former Featherweight and Lightweight Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion, took part in a quick Q&A session with his fans (Tues., Oct. 4, 2022). The future of McGregor’s combat career was one of the queries, given that he recently landed an acting gig while on the sidelines since July 2021.
When asked if he would next participate in the Welterweight division, McGregor replied, “Definitely.” “I’m eager to conduct clinics. They have seen a page and a half of my file. The greatest comeback in sports history [will occur].
McGregor is now on a two-fight losing streak following back-to-back fights with Dustin Poirier, one of his many enemies. After injuring his leg in round one, McGregor tasted defeat through technical knockout as their trilogy fight came to a bloody conclusion.
34-year-old Tyson Fury played 33 matches in the professional ring, won 32, and ended with one draw. After defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, the Manchester boxer struggled with depression for 3 years, gained significant weight, and started taking drugs. However, later he overcame the problem and returned to active boxing.
Since then, the Irishman has recovered and is now feeling better than ever.
McGregor answered when asked how the leg felt, “Distant remembrance.” “Excellent surgeons and staff. Now the leg is a deadly weapon.
The vacant 155-pound title fight between Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev will occur at UFC 280 on October 22, 2022, McGregor’s most recent fighting venue. Despite his previous failures, there has been some lingering speculation in the division about whether McGregor will challenge either winner for the title right away. Oliveira in particular has been outspoken about wanting to play.
If it does, McGregor is as confident as ever that he will triumph in a spectacular way. In the bout with Makhachev, McGregor predicted an “Olly and easily.” Every Brazilian fighter I’ve faced I’ve KO’d. Charles and I both KO.”
