Conor's head coach: "I’d be very surprised if Conor doesn’t fight again, he might come back this summer"
Conor McGregor’s head coach, John Kavanagh, who was skeptical about the return of the Irishman to the octagon not so long ago, now has no doubt that fans will see the former UFC two-division and the main MMA superstar champion in action soon, apparently this summer.
“I think there has been a renewal in his passion and his love and I think if the right to oppose comes along, something that’s very impressive to him, a good assert, something that will get the crowd going. I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t fight again. His return might even happen this summer,” - Kavanagh said in one of his recent interviews.
In recent days, the famous and scandalous Irishman has regularly become a participant in various conflicts, and Kavanagh hopes they will leave behind all the negativity and return to positive things.
“I think myself and everyone in Ireland that’s involved in MMA, we’re grateful for what Conor has done. He shuns a huge light on what we did but he has made mistakes I absolutely don’t excuse. I know he regrets them, he’s paid for them, he’s trying to learn from them and he’s trying to move on.
I hope we go back to doing the positive things; the goal setting, the work ethic, going for something that seems impossible. Those are the qualities I love in Conor, that I love talking about when I’m in the kids’ classes. I’m aware of the fact I need to set a good example for them and I know Conor does. That’s what I want to get back to the many, many positive qualities he has.”
It stands to note that at yesterday’s a huge press conference in Atlanta, UFC President, Dana White, announced that in two weeks he would personally meet with Conor McGregor to discuss his next fight.
“Yes, Conor will fight. After two weeks, I will meet with him in Miami to discuss details,” - White said.
Recall that the notorious Conor McGregor has not fought since his last crushing defeat to the Russian unstoppable UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov last October at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, Nevada. It stands to mention that Conor has recently completed his Nevada State Athletic Commission suspension service in the case of a mass brawl right after a Khabib fight in October provoked by “The Eagle”.
