Conor McGregor shows off UFC belts and willing to chase more like a “Dog”

Conor McGregor of Ireland poses on the scale during the UFC 257 weigh-in at Etihad Arena on UFC Fight Island on January 22, 2021

Conor McGregor is known for his retirement drama, however, he is not retiring any time soon. McGregor hinted to chase for the title bout again through a Twitter post. Furthermore, the tweet could be an indirect jab at his prime rival, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

McGregor has announced his retirement in 2016 and 2019 but returned twice to the octagon. After that, he has not talked about his retirement yet. Moreover, it seems he is looking for some intense fighting.  

The Notorious posted a photo of him holding two championship titles. The photo was taken five years ago after he won the UFC Lightweight Championship over Eddie Alvarez. McGregor is reminding everyone about his golden days, and he is coming back with all of his force.

The Irishman hinted to chase more viscously and tweeted, “I’m a dog, you run I’m chasin Dog face.”

However, this tweet could be an indirect pinch to his rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, who won the championship title in one division only. The 32-year-old has been pulling Khabib’s leg since his retirement.

How can Conor McGregor chase for the title again?

The Notorious is currently at No. 6 in the lightweight division, while Dustin Poirier is at the top.

The Notorious will fight Poirier for the third time this coming summer. If the Irishman can win the trilogy, his ranking will rise, and he may get a chance to participate in a title shot.

After the trilogy, McGregor may target Tony Ferguson, who is in the fifth position. And other fighters at the top position, such as Michael Chandler, Charles Oliveira, and Justin Gaethje, will be easy for him to beat.

Further, two or three more shots after the trilogy will secure him a UFC lightweight title bout.

McGregor has nothing to fear as his oldest rival, Nurmagomedov, is not playing anymore. Moreover, his defeat against Poirier at UFC 257 seems to boost his confidence as he has been in an intense training camp following that fight.
