Conor McGregor is expected to make his return to action on January 18, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, possibly against Donald Cerrone.
While the fight has yet-to-be made official, Conors agent — Auddie Attar — says Donald Cerrone is the likely candidate and an announcement is imminent.
“I would say that talks have been progressing,” Attar told the South China Morning Post about the potential McGregor/Cerrone bout.
“We’ve met them, we’re in close communication with them. I would hope that an announcement could happen in the coming weeks, but at the end of the day, it’s still a work in progress.”
Of course, Conor hasn’t competed in over a year, and prior to that, he didn’t fight in MMA for two years, opting to box Floyd Mayweather.
According to Attar, Conor doesn’t have to fight if he doesn’t want to. And if he chooses to stop after UFC 246, then he can live comfortably for the rest of his life.
“He never has to fight one fight more in his life,” Attar added. “At the end of the day, that’s the thing people forgot about him; he actually is a competitor. He dares to do things differently.”
That said, Attar says Conor will back up his words of fighting more often, as “notorious” has already stated he intends to fight three times in 2020.
“I don’t see him slowing down,” he said. “I think that fighting once a year for the last couple of years, it’s almost like it’s grown his appetite to stay active,” he said.
“In any sport, the more reps you take, the better you get. He’s no stranger to becoming a world champion multiple times over. He knows what it takes.”
