If Conor McGregor decides to move up a weight division and challenge for a new belt, his opponent will be ready and waiting.
“Hey Mr. McGregor, if you want to come to the lightweight division, this is my division,” he said, via UFC.com. “It’s better to stay in the featherweight division. I would fight you in Brazil, I will go to Ireland to face you there, whatever you want — I’m here to stay.”
McGregor previously has said he wants to be a dual-weight champion, moving up and down defending each respective belt as deserving challengers present themselves. UFC president Dana White also said that McGregor would face the winner of the dos Anjos-Cerrone title match if he decides to fight heavier.
