It's official! Conor McGregor is finally making a return; in a recent video, he confirmed that he will be fighting Michael Chandler on 29th June at 185 pounds. The last few words shocked the entire world; some believed Conor McGregor was serious, and some found his tone sarcastic.
If McGregor actually makes a return at 185, he will be marked as the only fighter in the history of the UFC to fight in 4 different weight divisions. Henry Cejudo believes McGregor is doing it for the sake of accomplishing a major feat and breaking a record.
Henry Cejudo on McGregor’s fight announcement
In a recent YouTube video, Henry Cejudo shared his thoughts on Conor McGregor announcing a return at 185 pounds.
“Since the beginning, he said we’re going to be fighting at 185 pounds,” Cejudo said as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I had actually mentioned, if you guys recall, Conor has the ability to go 155, 170, and guess what guys? Even 185 – and that’s exactly what he just pulled.
Conor McGregor – will he win? I’m not sure. But the simple fact that Conor has fought at 145, 155, 170 and now 185, I mean, those are four different weight classes. Maybe Conor wants to be the first person to say, ‘Hey I fought in four different weight classes in the UFC’ – which is absolutely crazy, which is absolutely nuts.
Henry Cejudo on Michael Chandler
“Conor has gotten big, and for that weight class, Conor is short, but guess what? So is Michael Chandler. They’re both two short, stocky dudes that are going to be firing at 185 pounds.Michael Chandler did a really good job of just waiting, because you know why? Conor McGregor is a cash cow.
I mean, I would wait almost two years to fight Conor… Those are a whole lot of (millions) that are coming your way, Michael Chandler”.
