Conor McGregor’s Coach Thinks He’s Done With Lightweight

Conor McGregor took this sport on another level.

He came in the UFC and defeated Jose Aldo, the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter at the time, and dethroned him. After that, he beat Eddie Alvarez and became the first-ever fighter who held two division titles simultaneously.

It eventually became clear that we couldn’t see McGregor at featherweight forever, and now it might be the same with lightweight.

McGregor announced on social media that he is almost 190 pounds, and he looks bigger than ever in the latest pictures. According to his head coach, John Kavanagh, McGregor will not fight at lightweight when he returns.

“You might have seen some extreme pictures of Conor from years ago when he was fighting in the lower weight classes in the UFC. They were very extreme and they were all done under the eyes of a medical professional. Even he himself wouldn’t ever go back to those weight classes now,” Coach John Kavanagh said in a recent Instagram live video.

“It’s not healthy, and it’s not for the long term. I would encourage you to look at his more recent pictures he’s putting up on Instagram. Look how big and strong that looks That’s what it is to be a fighter, get big, get strong, and be healthy for life,” Kavanagh added.

But McGregor also said he has unfinished business with Dustin Poirier, but it’s unclear if Poirier will return to lightweight as well.

There’s also rumors that McGregor will challenge lightweight champion Charles Oliveira for the belt – which Oliveira previously verbally agreed to – but that’s unclear as well.
