  • Daniel Cormier wants to see Conor McGregor competing for the title if he beats Michael Chandler
  • DC also proposed a rematch between “Notorious” and Max Holloway

Daniel Cormier has proposed a couple of interesting fights for Conor McGregor.

Title after a win, Tony after a loss

 Speaking on the Good Guy / Bad Guy show, DC weighed in on what could be the best scenario for “Notorious” after UFC 303. With McGregor planning to stay active this year, Cormier suggested that the UFC hand him a title shot if he ends up beating Michael Chandler in his return. Should McGregor lose, DC thinks it would be perfect if he faces Tony Ferguson.

“I believe, If he gets through Michael Chandler, I say give him a title fight,” Cormier told Chael Sonnen on the show. “Put him in there with (Dustin) Poirier or (Islam) Makhachev on Mexican Independence Day or some time soon thereafter. Because you don’t want him having too much time.”

“If he loses, put him in there with Tony Ferguson. Tony Ferguson deserves to have that big platform the last time to see if he can go and do what he said he was going to do to Conor all of those times and so long ago,” he continued.

A McGregor vs. Holloway rematch before the year ends

Cormier also fancies seeing McGregor run it back with Max Holloway to cap off the year. For DC, that fight deserves a rematch considering how “Notorious” and “Blessed” have evolved sine the first time they fought.

“And in December let him do Max Holloway. Let him and Max Holloway fight. I want to see Conor McGregor and Max Holloway today, [as] opposed to Max Holloway when they were children. The first time they fought, they were kids. I’d like to see the end of the year as we head to Vegas to end the year, I want to see Max Holloway get an opportunity to right that wrong against Conor McGregor, especially if it’s the Max Holloway that we saw fight Justin Gaethje,” Cormier said.

McGregor hasn’t fought professionally since breaking his leg at UFC 264 in 2021. After three years of hiatus, the former UFC two-division champion will come back in the hope to become a three-weight champion this time.
