Conor McGregor Set For a Return

However, The spectacle of him throwing punches in the facility has seemingly made Coach Kavanagh happy, as he took to Twitter to convey his thoughts on motivated McGregor, and his likely opponent.
“Watching @TheNotoriousMMA do MMA rounds lately has been a real joy and education. Fluidity of movement with elite level timing and skill. Dustin has improved so much since first meeting, conor has improved much more imo. To see them hydrated & healthy at 170 will be fascinating.”

When the two squared off against against each other 6 years ago, they fought at the Featherweight division. While, since then Poirier has been fighting in the Lightweight class, but with McGregor being non regular and then walking through the Welterweight threshold again in 2020, there would be an uncertainty regarding under which weight section the fighters will mutually agree to fight. However, McGregor’s Mentor wants his trainee to continue from where he left off and thus desires to see Dustin Poirier move up in the weight category too.
