Conor McGregor held a townhall Q & A in Glasgow, Ireland over the weekend where he stated that he’d take the win if the he was ever given the rematch opportunity. Conor acknowledged the unlikelihood of the fight, however he does believe with the experience of the first fight he’d prevail.
Surprisingly McGregor attended the event with the certain level of humility, respecting the 50-0 and Floyd’s retirement.He even stated he wasn’t about to turn the event into an opportunity to call out Floyd.
“I know if I went another go with him, under boxing rules, I’d get that win. I know that. I know by the feeling of him in the first fight. “He had to change his whole approach. He fought completely different than he ever fought. He couldn’t figure out what I was doing early on. “With the lessons I learned from that first fight, if I had another go now, I’d get him.At the same time, he’s 50-0 and he’s getting on, I’m not gonna start calling him out. I’m happy to see a fighter (do well).”
UFC Lightweight Champion
The still present UCF lightweight champion also entertained potential match ups back in the octagon such as a Nate Diaz finally. Undefeated Russian phenom Khabib Nurmagomedov also came up, and is thought to be the most deserving of the chance at 24-0. As a kid Khabib wrestled bears in training.
