    The first opponent that Conor McGregor is likely to face once he returns will be ‘Cowboy’ Donald Cerrone. McGregor’s manager has confirmed that the two teams are in talks and that a deal is being worked out. Cowboy is a veteran but has been losing the sheen off late and is expected to lose in his bout against McGregor.

    Having won the UFC 244 main event between himself and Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal has once again risen to prominence in the world of UFC. McGregor, who was hoping that Diaz would win this match is likely to face Masvidal sometime in 2020 – and while the BMF belt won’t be on the line, this would lead to some interesting trash talk between the two.

    The one we’ve all been waiting for. McGregor has, time and again, shown a lot of interest in a rematch against Khabib. However, Khabib himself is going to face off against the biggest challenge of his life – Tony Ferguson sometime in 2020 and it doesn’t appear that a fight with Conor is imminent, but it is something Dana White will certainly ensure sometime in the future.
