While Conor McGregor is involved in rigorous training sessions to make a memorable return to the ring, speculation over his opponent is already on the rise. Reports have suggested that Dana White has been trying really hard to find Conor a new fighter at 170 pounds on his return to UFC. Notably, Conor has previously won championships at two different levels, and now he wants to be the first to win titles in three distinct divisions.
As per several reports, Dana is mulling to rope in Nata Diaz's final fight with Conor for that epic fourth battle between the two superstars. As things stand, Usman will face Leon Edwards, and if he wins, it will open the door for someone else to challenge him in the Welterweight class. If he wins this one, Usman has already given Conor his blessing for a shot at the belt. Interestingly, the most significant money draw in the UFC is the ability to fight for the title with just one win in the Welterweight division.
Current UFC champion Kamaru Usman recently appeared on TMC to discuss the possibilities of Irishman winning the championship, and he said, "If this little Irish B***** wins, he gets his little shot next." Notably, Usman's agent has proposed an idea to conduct a four-man Welterweight competition with two semi-finals and a championship match. Kamaru Usman vs Leon Edwards and Conor vs Nate this four-man tournament," Ali Abdelaziz tweeted.
However, reports have suggested that Dana White may not agree to such an event. McGregor, who has been working on his physique, keeps sharing his pictures and videos of his training sessions at the Crumlin Boxing Club in Dublin and has begun sparring with his training partners in the ring.
Amidst stiff training, UFC star recently shared a picture of himself showing off his physical transformation from 2015 to 2022. Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor took to Instagram to share photos of his physical change over the years. "Climb the ladder," he captioned the post.
