Conor McGregor was admired during his fight against Floyd Mayweather and because of this, several boxing fans asked if he would still consider another fight in the same sports. As Mayweather is headed back into retirement, the question now is focused on the Irish fighter as he got some people impressed by his performance.
After his competitive 10th-round TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather, Bleacher Report claimed that McGregor gained positive remarks regarding how he fought the boxing champ. With this, his performance has left an option open to the boxing world.
Because of his impressive performance, some sports analyst and experts gave opinions about what McGregor should do next or if it's good for him to look for another opponent in another match. With this, Ariel Helwani of the MMAFighting.com's said that the UFC fighter will have been out of the UFC fight for over a year by the time he already returns to the Octagon.
If that is to be considered, Helwani added that it is not good since there is an obvious decrease in the pay-per-view sales in UFC at the moment in addition to the excess of contenders in the featherweight and the lightweight divisions. But on the other way, it is also great due to the presence of several prospective opponents for the Irish fighter.
While McGregor may have lost to Mayweather, the response to his performance has been positive. Because of what he just showed, a lot of curious newcomers will watch the next time Conor will enter the cage.
With this report from Telegraph, a lot of possible opponents for McGregor has been revealed and the first that was mentioned was Jeremy Stephens. Reports were rife that Stephens will be a perfect opponent for McGregor as this possible match is believed to soar over one million buys and would give McGregor an impressive victory.
But the future of McGregor in the world of combat sports depends on Dana White and Sean Shelby who are in-charge of UFC. There is a possibility that they will put together the greatest fight possible no matter the danger involved.
