Who should Conor McGregor face on his return?
Irish superstar Conor McGregor is targeting a spring/summer return in 2022, but who should “The Notorious” face in his comeback fight?
Conor McGregor has set his timeline for a return to the octagon, but who should “The Notorious” face on his return?
That’s just one of the questions we ponder on this week’s episode of The Brit Pack MMA Podcast as MMA returns to full speed after something of a “gap week” last weekend.
Before we mull over McGregor’s many, many options for a comeback fight, we take a look at the double-header of U.S.-based events, with bantamweights taking centre stage at both Bellator 272 and UFC on ESPN 31.
We give our takes on Kyoji Horiguchi’s return to Bellator as he challenges reigning bantamweight champ Sergio Pettis, as well as break down the UFC headliner between in-form contender Rob Font and Brazilian legend Jose Aldo.
We also look back at Triller Fight Club’s latest offering, Triad Combat, which offered a strange hybrid ruleset that didn’t quite pan out as one of our team expected.
There’s even time to give our early reaction to the booking of British rivals Amir Khan and Kell Brook in a welterweight boxing grudge match that has probably arrived six years later than it should have done.
It’s a packed, but pacy show, and it’s all yours right here!
