Now whilst Andrew Tate has yet to take up any of these opportunities, he has shared his opinion on how he believes many of these potential matchups would play in his favor. Including a matchup against Conor McGregor.

Andrew Tate Speaks About a Hypothetical Conor McGregor Fight

Speaking with Rob Moore, Tate delved into the idea of a matchup with the current UFC athlete and shared his reasoning on what exactly it would take for him to seriously consider an offer for this potential bout.

‘That’s an interesting one, I guess. I mean he is still in his prime, I’m a lot bigger than him. He is very good, very capable. We would certainly have a lot of good trash talk. It would make a lot of money but again I would need a personal problem with him to fight him.’

Whilst Tate would see the interest in a matchup of this kind it appears it is not something he would be actively looking to pursue making it clear he has no type of conflict with McGregor which would make him want to do so.

He would also go on to show his respect and admiration for the Irish superstar.

‘I have nothing against Conor, kind of like the guy so there would have to be a good reason.’

All hypothetical of course, but even if this idea were to come to fruition Tate would have to wait quite some time as McGregor continues his recovery from the devastating leg injury, he suffered against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

McGregor is anticipated to return to action in 2023 but as confirmed by Dana White, just like any athlete who is taken out of the USADA testing pool, the Irishman would need to submit six months of clear samples before he is able to return to competition in the UFC.
