Stop the presses people. This Thursday, Conor McGregor is going to hold a press conference in Moscow, Russia. Exciting news, isn’t it? Not really. Rather than having a fight announcement scheduled, one can only assume this is another ploy to debut his Proper No. Twelve Whiskey in Russia. That is correct. Instead of fighting the plethora of opposition at his disposal in the 155 pound weight class, he will likely rant and rave how he has the best selling whiskey this side of Jack Daniels.
The talk should not be about when Conor McGregor fights again; rather, it should be if Conor fights again. Let’s face it, all the guys at the top of the division pose a significant threat – be it Justin Gaethje, Tony Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov or Dustin Poirier. I would favor all of them with perhaps the exception of Gaethje to defeat the “Notorious” one.
So make your big “announcement” Conor because there’s only so many elderly gentlemen you can punch in the face.
