As we’ve seen with Conor McGregor in the past, he has the star power to pretty much demand anything he wants. With rivals in every single weight division, there’s always the chance that ‘The Notorious’ could get drafted in to replace a welterweight title contender if they drop out of a championship slot, or perhaps also at lightweight or even middleweight. He’s stated that weight classes mean nothing to him, and his ventures to 170 pounds prove that in abundance.
Maybe he retires, or maintains the featherweight strap but detours to lightweight on the way back down. The truth is, we know even less about the future of Conor McGregor than we did before his first loss.
