The head coach of SBG Ireland stated that Nate Diaz, Tony ferguson , Dan Hooker, Islam Makhachev, Charles Oliveira and Dustin Poirier McGregor’s next opponents are possible.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Conor McGregor’s head coach John Kavanagh spoke on various topics. Helwani asked the SBG trainer who he felt McGregor should face in their comeback fight, in response, Kavanagh stated:

I’ll be honest. The Nate Diaz trilogy is very, very tantalizing. It’s a fight that gives me nightmares. The man does not stop advancing, be it three or five rounds. But it is an intriguing fight. So that is definitely very interesting. But also Tony Ferguson’s: it never happened. There was a lot of talk. Tony still has, I think, a lot to offer to the game. He’s a very unorthodox puncher, a fighter. I think the prep would be fun for the fans. So, you know, any of those legacy types; But look, that (light) division is killer. You know, Dan Hooker is there. The fight against Islam (Makhachev) would also be amazing, for obvious reasons. And we have, you know, whoever wins this belt [de peso ligero de UFC] [entre Charles Oliveira y Dustin Poirier]. So, you know, look, any of those names; I’m excited to see Conor return.

John Kavanagh also noted that he wondered what would happen after the gruesome leg injury Conor McGregor suffered in their most recent fight. Kavanagh indicated that despite the injury, and the fact that McGregor is incredibly wealthy and doesn’t have to compete in MMA for a living, ‘Notorious’ is still very much in love with the sport.

Conor McGregor has hinted at weight gain ahead of his long-awaited return to professional MMA competition.

While nearly all of the opponents listed by John Kavanagh have primarily competed at lightweight throughout their careers, Conor McGregor’s future could be played out in a different weight class entirely.

‘Notorious’ has been updating their fans regarding their recovery process and lately has attracted significant attention for muscle and overall weight gain What have you achieved. In recent months, Conor McGregor has suggested that he could fight at welterweight once more.

Currently, Conor McGregor’s next opponent and exact return date are shrouded in mystery. However, an estimated timeline for his return indicates that He could fight again in mid-2022.
