UFC lightweight champion Conor Mcgregor last fought at UFC 205 back in 2016, where Notorious knocked out Eddie Alvarez in the first round to pick up UFC lightweight title. This was Irishman’s only fight at 155-pound.
Since then Mcgregor went on to box against great pugilist Floyd Mayweather, which he lost via tenth round TKO stoppage back in August of 2107.
UFC president Dana White said recently, Conor Mcgregor will be stripped of his lightweight title, as soon Max Holloway and Khabib Nurmagomedov face off at UFC 223. But that didn’t stop White to shower Mcgregor with praises, during a recent interview on The Jim Rome Show, where he was discussing UFC 223 main event title fight: (Quote Via MMAMania)
“For people that don’t know, Khabib is undefeated, he is 25-0 and it is impossible to go undefeated in this sport. This guy is the real deal, he’s a beast. I think Max Holloway is very underrated…the guy hasn’t lost in five years. His last lost was a decision to Conor. Conor is out there knocking everybody out at 155, and Holloway went to a decision with him. He (Max) has got the most stoppages in featherweight history, is an absolute beast and I think he is completely underrated. But at the end of the day, Khabib is a monster and when you break this fight down, you look at the stats, it’s awesome.”
No doubt Conor Mcgregor has an impressive resume, but he never defends any of his titles and fact remains he has only one win at lightweight division inside the Octagon.
As per White, Mcgregor is shooting for a September return and may fight the winner of Holloway vs. Nurmagomedov.
Do you think Conor Mcgregor will ever fight again, if he does return who should he fight?
