John Kavanagh Hopes to Corner Conor McGregor in Next Bout
By FCF Staff
Recently there’s been speculation and or rumors that Conor McGregor and John Kavanagh have split ways. But, recently the SBG leader said he hopes to corner the star in his next bout.
Due to recent comments Kavanagh had made about not communicating much with McGregor, speculation peaked as to whether the former UFC champ had moved on. Then, more recently, the Irish fighter was doing some training in Miami.
In a recent appearance on The Late, Late Show, Kavanagh reported he hadn’t seen McGregor in “months”. But, when asked about whether he hopes to corner McGregor for his next bout, Kavanagh said “Very much so, I certainly hope so” (quote via MMA Fighting).
Kavanagh also said the following, when discussing whether he believes McGregor will fight again:
“I think there has been a resurgence in his passion and his love and I think if the right contest comes along, something that’s very interesting to him, a good challenge, something that will get the crowd going…I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t fight again…as soon as…it could be even the summer,” Kavanagh said.
McGregor hasn’t fought since October, when he was submitted by lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
