Former UFC two division champion Conor McGregor could be headed back to the welterweight division for a bout with Jorge Masvidal. McGregor’s manager says that the bout is being negotiated for this summer on international fight week and fans are excited at the prospects.
Mexican Boxing champion Saul Canelo Alvarez appeared on the Telemundo Morning show where he was asked about fighting McGregor himself and about a fellow Latino in Masvidal fighting him:
“Conor McGregor is an MMA fighter, I don’t really like this question too much because he’s not a boxer. If he comes back to Boxing I will show him that and stop him from doing this again.”
“I think Masvidal will win, he will do it by knockout. Conor is not equipped to deal with the Latino fighters, this style of fighting breaks him.“
