McGregor On Rematches With Mayweather, Holloway, Poirier And Aldo
The words ‘Conor McGregor’ and ‘rematch’ are often used in the same sentence. Talking in a Q&A last weekend, McGregor addresses possible rematches with Floyd Mayweather, Max Holloway, Dustin Poirier and Jose Aldo.
When discussing a possible rematch inside the boxing ring with Mayweather, McGregor said he would be ‘ready and confident’ for a rematch. Adding that if he prepared for the way Mayweather fought at the end of the fight, that ‘Mexican style, hands up over his eyebrows, marching forward’, the outcome will be very different. As transcribed by BJPenn.com.
“Next camp, and I do believe it should happen, I mean, why not? Why not? If I have sparring partners in my camp that march forward, trust me when I tell you, I’ll send his head into the bleachers.”
And it’s not just Mayweather that McGregor is interested in rematching. The Irish man said he was also open to rematches with three guys he’s beaten in the past, Max Holloway, Dustin Poirier and Jose Aldo.
“On the other side, if you beat a man convincingly, a first-round KO, a dominating performance, there’s not really a need for a rematch. But, if that individual rises up the ranks, if he goes back, checks himself, humbles himself, stays focused, stays positive and rises up exactly like Dustin Poirier has done and exactly like Max Holloway has done, well then there is rematches deserved.
“Even Aldo now currently, he had a great win, his last two wins were great wins. He had a little bit of a slip but he’s had two great wins and now he’s fighting in his hometown of Rio De Janeiro. I actually was thinking I might slide in and face him but all these politics and co-main event conversation kind of halted that as well. If he wins, I believe he’s up in line for a rematch also.”
During the same Q&A, McGregor also spoke about fighting Nate Diaz again, what it would take for him to fight in a co-main event, his fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov and the fact he thinks that Joe Rogan reads from a script when commentating. You can see McGregor discuss these things here, here and here.
