Conor McGregor promised that he would return to the UFC cage the best he has ever been, and it seems to be showing in the gym.
According to his head trainer, John Kavanagh, “Notorious” is once again loving the sport.
And while he is training ahead of his Welterweight bout against Donald Cerrone, set to go down at UFC 246 on Jan. 18, 2020, McGregor seems to be happy again.
“I think this is the best he’s ever been. And the reason I am saying that is because of the consistency over the last few months is a real return to smiling on the mat, enjoying it, having fun,” said John during a recent interview with The Mac Life.
“It’s cliche to say but a happy fighter is a dangerous fighter.”
“He just seems really happy with his life and with his training. With the environment we have here and with competing again. I think this is the best he’s ever been.”
Conor seems to have the fire in him after losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October of 2018, and he has a busy year lined up for himself.
According to the former UFC champ-champ, he wants to fight at least three times in 2020.
If he gets through Cerrone, he wants to rematch Khabib Nurmagomedov for the 155-pound title.
After that, he wants to take Jorge Masvidal’s “BMF” title in a 170-pound bout.
If that weren’t enough, he has his sights set on the heavy-handed lightweight, Justin Gaethje.
If McGregor can get through all of those dangerous foes in 2020, it would mark one of the best runs ever in MMA.
Conor simply has to take it one step at a time, beginning with “Cowboy” in just a matter of weeks.
