Upon hearing Froch express his willingness to participate in a unique crossover fight with McGregor during his podcast, Froch on Fighting show, the latter utilized social media to call upon Hearn to make the fight a reality.

In his comments, Froch said: “If I’m fighting Conor McGregor in the cage, I’d train harder, because I’d fight Conor McGregor in the cage.
“I could be getting myself in trouble here or into a position I can’t wiggle out of, but I think I’d take him on in the cage. Is that ridiculous? Is that wrong?”

Secondly, given that McGregor is on course for his comeback, which will most likely be against Michael Chandler, another non-UFC fight is the last thing he needs if he still has the desire to become a third-weight world champion.
His loss against Dustin Poirier, which saw Conor suffer from a broken leg, has left many unanswered questions over McGregor’s durability moving forward, which will no doubt need to be answered.
