Conor McGregor: Who will he fight next?

Colby Covington has condemned Conor McGregor’s recent behaviour and warned it could land him a prison sentence.

McGregor’s career has slid into a noticeable decline in recent years having suffered three defeats in his last four UFC outings.

He is currently recovering from the broken leg he endured after a second stoppage loss to Dustin Poirier in July.

Welterweight contender Covington has praised McGregor’s impact on the UFC, but is saddened by the negative “attention” the Irishman is generating with his controversial actions.

“He’s [ Conor McGregor ] just looking to get headlines,” Covington told MMA News. “He’s just looking to stay in the spotlight.

“You know, get some attention around him because he’s coming off some losses. He made a lot of money, man. He had a great career and he’s had some special moments in the UFC.

“He thinks he’s above the law now. He thinks that money can buy you whatever you want. It’s sad to see, man. It’s a big downfall. I don’t think things are going to turn out good for him in the long run.

“We will see this come back to haunt him and he could be behind bars someday.”

McGregor has faced a number of incidents outside of the cage that have threatened to mar the legacy of his glorious fighting career.

He has been on multiple deleted Twitter crusades against a whole host of stars including bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, Poirier and Daniel Cormier.

Some of his comments about the Russian have provoked offended reactions including his comments about Nurmagomedov’s native Dagestan, for which rising star Muhammad Mokaev has demanded an apology.

McGregor was also involved in a heated exchange with rapper Machine Gun Kelly at the VMA’s which descended into a brawl.

And he has faced heavy criticism from several others inside the sport including Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen.

But nonetheless he plans on returning to the top of the 155lb division and is plotting the “greatest comeback ever” as he continues to step up his training.

He has faced an offer from a whole host of potential opponents as he eyes a cage revival including Max Holloway and a trilogy with bitter rival Nate Diaz.

Jorge Masvidal has also thrown his name into the mix on numerous occasions as he looks to secure a tilt for the UFC’s one-off ‘bad mother******’ belt which he currently holds.

Although the welterweight star has claimed that McGregor rejected multiple offers to face him and he has now told him to “go be a celebrity” in a brutal put-down.

“I think he’s a bitter old man, just staring at the TV all day. It sucks for him that he’s broken,” Masvidal told the MMA Hour.

“He’s gotten broken so many times that he can’t put himself back together, as far as fighting goes. Go have a regular life bro, be a celebrity.”
