He is bound to main-event the show and is currently expected to face a mystery opponent, most likely Justin Gaethje. Let us take a closer look at what his coach had to say about him.

Conor McGregor’s Coach Comments on His Fitness
Conor McGregor’s coach Owen Roddy, who helps him improve his striking, recently commented that he is confident that McGregor is going to defeat his next opponent, whoever he may be. He added that Conor is ‘working very hard’ is ‘ready to go’ and is in ‘phenomenal shape’.
This is some good news coming from camp McGregor as many of his fans wondered if The Irishman would have gained some ring-rust, given he had been away from MMA for so long now. However, it appears that the former champ is in great spirits and is physically quite well too – and a comeback is bound to bring a strong win for McGregor.
Anybody else think that Mcgregor is going to get his silly ass smacked around in his UFC return??
