McGregor Offers To Headline UFC 230
With what some are calling a lackluster main event for the UFC’s return to Madison Square Garden on November 3rd, Conor McGregor has offered to fight on the card, less than a month after his October 6th fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
This week Sijara Eubanks and Valentina Shevchenko were announced to headline the New York City event for the vacant women’s flyweight title, and with fans, analysts, and Joanna Jedrzejczyk confused by the call, McGregor offered his services during Thursday’s presser.
“I may want to spark Khabib and headline that Madison Square Garden card on November 3rd,” McGregor said Thursday.
“That’s less than a month away from this one. I may want to do that one and that’s what I’m thinking about that to be honest.”
Former McGregor opponent Dustin Poirier and McGregor’s rival Nate Diaz are set to be in the co-main event, with both fighters pushing for what seems to be an unlikely 165 pound title. And while a McGregor fight seems unlikely for the Garden card, if that was seriously considered, Nate Diaz may walk off the same way he did when McGregor’s return was announced the same day as his fight against Poirier.
