Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje Confirmed for UFC 246 in January 2020?

Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje

Conor McGregor’s UFC return has been something that has been much talked about for quite some time now. The Irishman has been away from the Octagon following the controversial ending to the UFC 229 PPV where his loss against Khabib Nurmagomedov turned into an all-out brawl. Now that McGregor is gearing for a return in January, it appears that we are soon going to get Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje.

Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje Confirmed For UFC 246

Neither McGregor nor UFC has revealed if Gaethje is indeed Conor’s next opponent, but given that Diaz and Masvidal are both out of the picture and Khabib won’t be giving him a shot at his title anytime soon, the only two names which are likely to be his opponent back are that of Justin Gaethje and Cowboy Cerrone. There’s also Frankie Edgar of the featherweight division but he seems an unlikely candidate now.

Given that Gaethje recently defeated Cowboy Cerrone at a UFC Fight Night, it appears that McGregor vs Gaethje is the most sensible option right now. While McGregor’s fans are shooting down Gaethje by saying he is going to lose, Gaethje alleges that Conor McGregor wants to fight an easy foe and hence he might go for Cerrone.

Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje is an interesting pairing. The two men have never faced each other in the past and Gaethje is a rising star in UFC. His recent fight against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone was quite an easy win for him and he has since been wanting to face McGregor. The fight will still be heavily in favor of McGregor because he is indeed one of the all-time greats of the sports and a true veteran of the Octagon!
