Has Conor McGregor sent a message out to his rivals in the UFC this morning?
A month has now passed since the Irish fighter’s decision victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in Las Vegas.
And, as a result of that time passing, more attention will begin to turn to what McGregor does next.
That fight against Diaz was a rematch of their UFC 196 bout, where the American brawler submitted McGregor in the second round for a shock victory.
McGregor spoke before and after his 202 win about a trilogy fight, but mentioned that Diaz would have to drop down to 155lbs for him to take it on. Both previous fights were at welterweight – two weight classes higher than what the Irishman usually fights at.
Joe Rogan spoke on his podcast recently about McGregor going up against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in New York in November.
And Jose Aldo just adds to the list of fighters who want to square up against the Notorious, with the Brazilian keen to get revenge for the 13-second knockout he suffered at UFC 194.
So there are plenty of potential opponents for McGregor – and it appears he wants them to beg for a big money fight with him:

It seems McGregor isn’t getting the terms he wants to commit to his next fight. Or he’s tweeting about something completely different.
Anyway, given UFC 205 is less than two months away, Dana White and the organisation will have to make an announcement sooner rather than later on the card.
And it should be a big one as its the first big event UFC have held in New York since 1995.
Who do you think McGregor will fight?
