After UFC 196 win Conor McGregor’s coach says his next fight could be for the UFC 170lb belt

Because Conor McGregor is insane, we have the latest UFC 200 rumor straight from the mouth of his head coach John Kavanagh. McGregor jumping up two weight classes to challenge UFC welterweight champ Robbie Lawler is already being discussed in Ireland. These are not Internet rumor talks, these are real human beings that the UFC actually listens to talking about a mind boggling UFC 200 Super Fight.

From Kavanagh’s article for The 42

“Speaking of welterweights, I’ve seen that rumours of Conor fighting Robbie Lawler for the 170lbs belt at UFC 200 on 9 July have been gathering momentum. It’s not something we have discussed specifically but after Conor wins the lightweight belt, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the next fight is for the welterweight belt.

If that’s what Conor wants to do, I’ll absolutely support that move. I think that would be fantastic. We’re already talking about making history in a few weeks, but can you imagine what it will be like if Conor is the champion in three weight classes by the summer?”

Lawler is a human rabid wolverine wearing four ounce gloves. Conor McGregor is a such a wild man that if he sees a rabid wolverine approaching him in the streets of Dublin, he finds the nearest stick and goes up to poke it. See ya, RDA you are now yesterday’s news.
