Conor McGregor Meets Former UFC Owner Lorenzo Fertitta To Discuss Next Fight After UFC 246
Conor McGregor has met with former UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta to discuss his next move.
The Irishman got back in the win column last weekend at UFC 246 in Las Vegas, where he locked horns with Donald Cerrone in a welterweight match-up.
The former two-division champion only needed 40 seconds to pick up his first win in over three years, which came courtesy of a picture-perfect head kick and a ferocious swarm of strikes.
A matter of minutes after McGregor decimated ‘Cowboy’, attention turned to who he’ll face in the second outing of his 2020 ‘season’.
Unsurprisingly, fights with Khabib Nurmagomedov, Jorge Masvidal and Justin Gaethje were put to the Dubliner during the post-fight press conference, in which he insisted he’s ready to take on all comers.
He said: “I don’t think the who matters, the lightweight title will always be there.
“You see the difference in the physique and the preparation [at welterweight], that will come back around that shot.
“I’m not going to sit and wait, the who doesn’t matter, I’m looking at dates now.
“I know March is there, Lorenzo Fertitta is back on Tuesday so I’ll stay here and go for dinner and a toast with Lorenzo and Dana and chat about it then.”
And that meeting Fertitta has since taken place – with McGregor sharing snaps of his rendezvous with the former UFC CEO on his Instagram on Wednesday night.
