According to a report from ESPN’s MMA Show, the UFC is looking at a bout between Conor and Justin Gaethje.
The original belief was that McGregor would fight the winner of Khabib vs. Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 later this year, according to Dana White.
McGregor is coming off a TKO win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.
According to Dominance MMA head Ali Abdelaziz, the rumored fight is false.
“This rumor about @Justin_Gaethje fighting vs @TheNotoriousMMA is absolutely false. He had the opportunity to fight him already instead of cowboy but he didn’t. Justin is the number one contender and like khabib said. Conor needs to win 10 fights.”
