Who got next? Who the hell knows?!
Conor McGregor has flirted with potentially facing Floyd Mayweather Jr., participating in the WWE or going Hollywood.
The dude has offers, no question about it.
If you ask me, he wants NOTHING to do with Khabib Nurmagomedov and in a boxing match, anybody with a brain will tell you he wants none of Mayweather.
I doubt he wants to drop back down to 145 against to face Jose Aldo, so the most likely UFC options include finishing the trilogy with Nate Diaz or going up to welterweight to face Tyron Woodley. But even Dana White may balk at that in order to make a Woodley rematch with Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson, who fought Woodley to a draw at UFC 205 at MSG in NYC.
I think a third Diaz fight or cowardly avoiding Nurmagomedov to face Tony Ferguson are the wisest options for McGregor. To be clear, though, he might take assbeatings from both Diaz and Ferguson.
5Dimes has posted odds for four potential fights involving McGregor, who currently holds the featherweight and lightweight belts.
For now, McGregor is taking a little bit of time off back in Ireland while he prepares to become a father for the first time.
Therefore, oddsmakers are left to wonder who will face McGregor next. You can place these wagers on potential bouts at 5Dimes right now. Here’s what they have:
Conor McGregor -250 vs. Nate Diaz +190 (would be contested at 155 lbs.)
McGregor -205 vs. Jose Aldo +165 (145 lbs.)
McGregor -115 vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov (155)
Woodley -155 vs. McGregor (170)
