Conor McGregor hasn’t been very active in MMA, fighting only three times since November of 2016.
He did plan to fight three times in 2021 but the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic put an end to those plans, putting him on ice for an entire year following his knockout win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.
But if all goes well and he stays healthy, “Notoriou” says he will fight seven times in the next year and a half if allowed.
“The truth is the fight game will never get rid of me,” McGregor told Stephen A. Smith on the ESPN+ program. “Conor McGregor will be here until the day I go out. So that’s it. If they line me up, I’ll get about seven fights in the next year and a half. That’s what I want.”
It would be a welcome sight to see McGregor fight that many times, for fans and the promotion.
That’s because he’s the biggest money-maker around, and when he fights the world watches.
His first fight in his plans is an upcoming showdown against Dustin Poirier at the upcoming UFC 257 PPV event on Jan. 23.
