Conor McGregor On Next Opponent: ‘I Can Pick Who I Please’
Conor McGregor was recently a guest on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’. During his appearance, the topic came up of the Irish man’s next fight.
“My next fight, we’re in talks for July. We’re in talks for July so we’ll see what happens. A lot of politics going on. The fight game is a mad game but again, as I said again, to my fans I am in shape and I am ready.
“There are many opponents. In reality, I can pick who I please.”
The former two division champion said that he doesn’t need to fight ever again but it’s what he loves to do.
“I don’t necessarily need to fight. I am set for life, my family is set for life, we are good. But I am eager to fight, so we’ll see what happens. I’m just staying ready, as I like to say.”
McGregor is currently suspended until next month, for his part in the UFC 229 brawl. It was speculated that he would face ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC 239, on July 6th but ‘Cowboy’ is now set to fight Al Iaquinta, in the main event of UFC Ottawa.
Conor has discussed recently the possibility of giving rematches to Max Holloway, Dustin Poirier and Jose Aldo. As well as fighting Nate Diaz and Floyd Mayweather again. You can see McGregor discuss these potential rematches here and here.
