What’s 2019 Looking Like for McGregor?

Once one of the biggest stars in MMA and still with a huge fan-base behind him, Conor McGregor remains the topic of choice for many MMA fans. However, the fighter just doesn’t seem to have much of a future in MMA, but that’s mostly due to the suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission, which followed what happened at UFC 229 in October of 2018.

The results of the suspension will be heard this month, which could reveal various options for McGregor. His manager did mention that they’re expecting this to go well with the hearing and that he would be allowed to return to the Octagon without any hassles. However, we haven’t really seen many fights lined up or competitors lining up to take him on, which could be due after the suspension has been lifted.

Focused on Private Life for Now

Dipping into what he has been up to, we see McGregor focusing more on his whiskey called Proper 12. It’s finally ready to launch, which is obviously a major achievement for the fighter and taking up a lot of his time.

Now, with another child on the way, we see McGregor have even less time for the gym and getting back into the desire to get in the Octagon and take on the biggest fighters. In the last two years, we’ve only seen McGregor appear in 1 major fight, which ended terribly and got him suspended.

However, according to his manager, McGregor would want to return to the gym and get his fitness levels back up before even considering a fight. This would be a recommended step of course, but we’ll have to wait and see if he actually manages to make time with everything else happening in his life.

Legend Fedor Emelianenko Says McGregor Needs to Watch His Mouth

Heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko has said Conor McGregor needs to watch his mouth as he delivers his personal opinion of the Irishman.

The 42-year old is set to take on Ryan Bader in what’s believed to be one of his last fights as he plans to retire soon. However, to ensure he goes out with a great fight, he is taking on Ryan for none other than the Bellator title.

The heavyweight legend tends to be rather held back when it comes to delivering comment and smack-talk before a fight, which is the complete opposite of what McGregor does. Fedor also delivered comment on Khabib for his role in the whole UFC 229 matter what got them both suspended, saying that Khabib should’ve picked up the mic and told McGregor exactly where he should go.

He reckons that professionalism went out the door for McGregor who was unable to keep it in and burst out with everything he said instead, allowing his emotions to take over what should always be professional.
