One of the possible rivals of McGregor, the coach called the Russian Islam Makhachev, who is considered the successor of Khabib Nurmagomedov. According to Kavanagh, a fight between the fighters would be amazing.
The coach noted that he finds it tempting to fight Nate Diaz or Tony Ferguson. Kavanagh added Dan Hooker and UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira and Dustin Poirier to the list of possible opponents. “Any of these names. I am just very glad that McGregor is back, “the specialist shared.
Earlier, the Irishman was interested in the duel against the Chechen-born Swede Khamzat Chimaev. He admitted that the fight could take place immediately after his return to the octagon.
McGregor is recovering from an injury sustained in a fight against Poirier in July this year. He is expected to resume performances in spring 2022.
