Digging Deep: Matchmaking – UFC Lightweight Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor lost his UFC 257 main event fight with Dustin Poirier. He was linked with a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov if he had emerged victorious. A boxing match with Manny Pacquiao was also being discussed if he had gotten his hand raised.

Although he will still remain a massive draw, McGregor will likely be taking a step back in competition. Immediately following the event, fans and fighters were matching up Conor with their favorite fighters. Where and what he does from he remains an uncertainty, but it leaves a ton of room for speculation.
