Conor McGregor has expressed an interest in fighting ’embarrassing’ Islam Makhachev.

Yup, it looks like ‘The Notorious’ is at it again, making more enemies with his trash talk.

Islam Makhachev (22-1 MMA) put down Bobby Green (29-13 MMA) by TKO in the first round on Saturday, Febuary 26th at UFC Fight Night. Green took the fight at the last minute after Beneil Dariush (21-4 MMA) was forced out due to a leg injury.

The Irishman last fought in July of 2021 at UFC 264 where he went down to defeat by TKO in the first round thanks to Dustin Poirier (28-7 MMA). Conor McGregor (22-6 MMA) broke his leg in the fight, had surgery, and has been recuperating since then, hoping to get back in the Octagon this summer. The question being, who will McGregor fight next?
