Conor Mcgregor who is inactive since scoring a UFC lightweight title at UFC 205 against Eddie Alvarez that saw him become the promotion’s first simultaneous two-division world champion. Moreover, his most recent UFC 223 rampage puts him in legal trouble, where he is facing multiple felony charges and ordered to return to court on June 14th.
Mcgregor’s boxing coach Owen Roddy appeared in an exclusive interview with Express Sport, where he updated on McGregor’s potential comeback. Despite the fact, there was news floating where Khabib revealed the preliminary reports of a potential showdown with Conor Mcgregor has begun, hower coach revealed Irishman is eager to return, but there are still no talks on McGregor’s next bout.
“Just to have him back in the cage, I think that’s more important than anything else. He’s training, he’s looking good,” Roddy said.
“We can’t really talk about when he wants to return. But he’s adamant he’s getting back.”
“For me, the sooner (he’s back) the better. The UFC is really missing Conor, I believe,” Roddy said. “And I think everybody is missing the whole extravaganza of a Conor McGregor fight. There’s nothing like it in the world.”
“And I think the people in the world want to see it again. The sooner the better.”
Mcgregor’s longtime Striking coach Roddy said he is unaware who Mcgregor will lock horns upon his return, but he believes the Irishman will be welcomed back with open arms.
”There’s no indication of who it will be, but it doesn’t really matter, to be honest,” Roddy said. “I’ve said this before: The draw is Conor. The opponent is just somebody there to go in against him.”
“It’s whatever fight makes sense,” he added. “The biggest draw will get the chance to fight Conor.”
Before Mcgregor get himself inside the Octagon, he needs to settle the unfinished court business on June 14, where he is facing charges of three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.
