Conor McGregor ready for big return

Conor McGregor is ready for his big return to the UFC or the WWE.

Conor McGregor has a possible fight with Tony Ferguson the interim lightweight belt holder or a debut in the WWE as a wrestling match. Tony Ferguson has called out the lightweight champion McGregor to have a unified match.

Conor McGregor return

Conor McGregor has been seen on a yacht on vacation and just spending the money he earned in his mega fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Conor McGregor has been weighing his options.

And he looked to be sipping a beer on a yacht as recently as Monday when he celebrated the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifier win over Wales. He has been enjoying the large pay day he received for the Mayweather boxing match.

But now the current UFC lightweight champion appears eager to return to the grind. He is looking for the next big mega fight payday in his career. This may be a major UFC fight an event in the WWE or possibly another boxing match.

– According to the UK Sun, UFC’s Conor McGregor is finalizing negotiations with WWE for an appearance that would see him compete in the ring at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans.

McGregor is, of course, coming off his huge fight with Floyd Mayweather. McGregor working WrestleMania 34 would certainly bring a major spotlight to the event and whoever is put in a program with him.

A source told the UK Sun that McGregor is a big wrestling fan and has developed his persona watching wrestling stars like The Rock and Ric Flair. He has always wanted to try wrestling. WWE had made Conor McGregor a big offer back in January but he declined it at the time.

Also there may be a super fight between Conor McGregor and George St-Pierre if he can defeat Michael Bisping in the upcoming fight.

George St-Pierre will most likely challenge Conor McGregor with win vs Michael Bisping

George St-Pierre the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion at one time, was rumored to be in the running for a super fight with Conor McGregor back when “Notorious” was fooling around in the 170-pound division.

While that potential pay-per-view (PPV) payday may have gone by the wayside as the power-punching Irishman gears up for his first title defense. He may end up on the receiving end of a French-Canadian call out. Assuming “Rush” can win his return fight against Michael Bisping.

This is  according to training partner and UFC lightweight Olivier Aubin-Mercier.

I think what will be probable if he has a win over Michael Bisping . That he will call out Conor after,” Aubin-Mercier told TSN (via Irish Mirror).  That’s what I would do. I think for the UFC, it’s a really smart fight to do. It’s a win-win for them.  This could end up being another huge payday for Conor McGregor and St-Pierre.

GEORGE ST-PIERRE

And St-Pierre could always go down to 155 pounds (his words).

Nome of this matters if “Rush” is unable to get past reigning UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping when they go to war in the UFC 205 main event, scheduled for this November in New York City (details).

I think what would be possible is if he called out Conor McGregor after, and George wins, he’s the biggest MMA fighter of all-time. If Conor wins, he is too and if  George St-Pierre wins, I don’t think people are going to hold it against Conor.

But if he does win his post-fight speech should be very, very interesting to say the least.  This could set up a mega fight between both legends.

First things first though – St-Pierre has to get though the current middleweight champion in Madison Square Garden at UFC 217 before any of this can happen.

Nate Diaz critical over Conor McGregor’s loss to Mayweather

mma fighting conor mcgregor vs nate diaz

NATE DIAZ feels that talk of a moral victory for CONOR MCGREGOR following his recent 10th-round TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather will fall on deaf ears when it comes to view of the outcome of the fight.

Many of the  MMA fighters complimented McGregor on his first foray into professional boxing.  Facing  Floyd Mayweather which is one of the best ever to compete in the ring. Nate Diaz only had scorn for his Octagon rival. Which he expressed in an Instagram post Tuesday:

NATE DIAZ FEELS FLOYD MAYWEATHER WON ALL THE ROUNDS

Diaz stated that he didn’t see anything new from McGregor and he described the event as “over promoted bulls–t”, before capping off his short message by writing “Bruce Lee would’ve never lost like that.”

Most of the compliments directed at McGregor from other MMA fighters revolved around the total amount of punches he landed and the fact that he actually appeared to win the opening rounds before Mayweather found his rhythm. Mcgregor appeared to win first several rounds but

CONOR MCGREGOR GASSED OUT IN LATER ROUNDS

McGregor visibly tired as the fight progressed, a state that Diaz has seen firsthand given that McGregor’s cardio appeared to be an issue in both of their UFC fights.

Should McGregor and Diaz meet in a trilogy? The bad blood between them is evidently flowing as strong as ever. The mixed martial arts  fans want to see a trilogy. This is the fight that the ultimate fighter fans want and will pay to see the rematch.

Nate Diaz could get himself some ‘forever money’ like his old UFC rival.

It would appear as if the stars are aligning for Diaz to complete his trilogy with Conor McGregor.  The fight may yet take place at UFC 219 on December 30.
