Conor Mcgregor’s Coach Says Notorious May Not Be Back To Octagon Until April

UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor’s return to the octagon is still a puzzle. Newly Interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson is in line for his shot at the undisputed strap. But Mcgregor hasn’t set foot inside the Octagon since his historic UFC 205 victory over Eddie Alvarez.

The Irishman was in the limelight again when he signed his multi-million-pound boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr, which he lost by 10th-round TKO in his professional boxing debut back in August.

As per Conor Mcgregor’s coach, John Kavanagh said on Wednesday currently in Bahrain for an event, that the Notorious may not be back to the octagon until “April or mid-next year,” according to Farah Hannoun of Sports Journal. Moreover, Tyron Woodley vs Diaz rumor fight news surprised him the most.

Coach Kavanagh told Starsport that there was a time when I foresee Diaz trilogy fight for Mcgregor but Kavanagh’s timeline suggests that won’t be the case.

“Well I’ve been vocal about seeing the Diaz trilogy,” Kavanagh told Starsport. “But I have to say, over time, my opinion has changed on that. “I kind of hoped that maybe Diaz would stay active and do one or two fights in the meantime. He hasn’t, whereas Tony Ferguson has.

“He’s been very busy and has been very vocal, and he keeps on winning – and you have to respect that.

“He keeps on coming through these fights and winning.

“So it has changed from me being most excited about the Diaz trilogy to now I wanna see him and Tony.”

Regardless of all the above, McGregor knows how to stay in the limelight without being in the Octagon. Recently Notorious made the headlines for all the wrong reasons when he scaled the fence at Bellator 187 to celebrate his friend Charlie Ward’s win which caused all the chaos resulted in McGregor shoving referee Marc Goddard and slapping a Bellator official.

What do you guys predict who will be Mcgregor’s Next Opponent?
