  • Conor McGregor picked Charles Oliveira to beat Islam Makhachev at UFC 280
  • The Irish MMA superstar revealed who’s the toughest fighter he has ever fought

Conor McGregor has been busy filming his big-screen movie with Jake Gyllenhaal, “Road House.” However, “The Notorious” still found time to pause a bit and take his pick between UFC 280 headliners Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev.

Mystic Mac says it’s Charles

Replying to a fan in a recent Twitter Q&A, McGregor simply wrote, “Olly and easily.”

Evidently, “Olly” refers to Oliveira, and “easily” implies that the former UFC two-division champ sees the Brazilian making quick work of Makhachev.

McGregor’s “Mystic Mac” days seem to be over but let’s see if his UFC 280 prediction will turn out to be right.

Meanwhile, Oliveira isn’t relying on any predictions and analysis ahead of UFC 280. Instead, “do Bronx” chose to work on his game, especially his grappling as he knows he’s facing an incredible grappler in Islam. In his recent training video, Oliveira was spotted mastering some takedown defense.

Oliveira vs. Makhachev is a very important match in the lightweight division as it will determine who truly is the rightful king of the 155-pound division. 

McGregor answers more interesting questions

Aside from sharing his UFC 280 prediction, McGregor also delighted his fans by replying to some of the most interesting questions they’ve thrown in.

When asked who the toughest opponent he has ever fought in his career, McGregor quickly responded, Nate Diaz.

The Irish MMA superstar also affirmed that he will be fighting at welterweight in his long-awaited UFC return.

As for his leg injury, McGregor boasted that he has recovered well already and even referred to it as his “lethal weapon.”

To further entice the fans, McGregor billed his return as “the greatest comeback in sports history” when asked to rank how legendary his return to fighting will be.

Of course, “The Notorious” also had an epic and quite expected response when ask to pick who is the MMA GOAT between Anderson Silva and Jon Jones.

McGregor has been sidelined his suffering a horrible leg injury at UFC 264. His return has been a staple headline in the sport but until this very moment, there are no concrete details regarding what’s next for “The Notorious” in the UFC.

Perhaps, let’s just be more patient and wait how things will be play out.
