The current UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor has been out of the MMA scene for over a year now. Since he last stepped foot in the octagon, he stepped into the ring to face one of the greatest boxers of all time in Floyd Mayweather.
Rumblings have been all over the place in regards to what McGregor’s next move will be. Whether it’s back in MMA, back in boxing or not even fighting at all. Whatever it may be, it hasn’t stopped “the Notorious” from throwing out several jabs on social media to his fellow possible opponents for a potential return to action. Most recently…current featherweight champion and former opponent, Max Holloway:
This was just moments after I tore my ACL in a fight in Boston Massachusetts.
It was when I faced off against the current featherweight champion Max Holloway, who I dismantled before and after this ligament tear, to win a lopsided victory.
It was father against son in there that night in just my second UFC bout.
Young Max is a hell of a fighter, I wonder what the future holds for my young Uce.
Ligaments are needed in a fight definitely.
Some can fight on however, where as some can not.
I always think there are moments in your career that can make you or break you. I have had many in my storied career and this was most certainly one of them.
Boston Strong 🍀
Holloway and McGregor fought back in 2013 which feels like a lifetime ago for each fighter when seeing how much they have progressed since.
The featherweight champion has commented since his last fight that a move up to lightweight is inevitable and that he’s definitely open to a McGregor rematch. How possible is it that these two square off again?
