Conor McGregor is set to make his Octagon return this Saturday when he faces Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas, but don’t think that he’s not looking towards the future.
When asked about the possibility of having another boxing match before he retires, McGregor talked about his plans of rematching the man he fought in his first: Floyd Mayweather. He also believes that the results of the next fight will be much different if he prepares correctly:
“I’ve done phenomenal in that bout. The only reason I lost that bout was because I prepared for a back-footed Philly-shell style of opponent. When the fight was like that I was picking him apart. Then, he came forward and started pressing and I wasn’t sinking into my shots like I am now with my boxing coaches.”via Ariel Helwani show on Youtube
McGregor returns to the Octagon after losing via submission (Rear Naked Choke) to current Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October of 2018.
He currently is favored (-325) over “Cowboy” (+250) by Bovada.net.
