It looks Conor McGregor wants to get back in the Octagon and fight high-level competition before fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov later this year.
Last month Nurmagomedov was forced to pull out of his fight against Tony Ferguson after getting stuck in Russia due to the country’s lockdown.
Justin Gaethje went on to replace Nurmagomedov at UFC 249 and absolutely demolished Ferguson over the weekend to win the interim lightweight championship.
On Monday, McGregor said that he was wanted to fight Gaethje next as Nurmagomedov is currently taking a religious break from MMA due to Ramadan.
McGregor had some harsh words for Khabib in his rant.
The Irishman went on to say that he’s ready to move up to 170 pounds once he beats Gaethje and Khabib.
Update: Ali Abdelaziz, who represents both Gaethje and Khabib says that McGregor can wait because he chose not to fight Gaethje in January.
