During the recent post-fight press conference, Joaquin Buckley shared his thoughts on fighting Conor McGregor and Gilbert Burns.

“I’m definitely not going to get that, but why not take chances, right?” Buckley said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I’ve been doing it up until this moment, so why not make the biggest callout that I can make? If Michael Chandler doesn’t show up for the fight, ‘New Mansa’ will be ready”.
