Who’s next for Conor McGregor? “Tyron Woodley would be a special fight” – Owen Roddy

The UFC world is at Conor McGregor’s feet.

The UFC world is at Conor McGregor’s feet.

Ireland’s first UFC champion and UFC’s first simultaneously two division is the envious position of choosing which weight class he fights in the next.

Conor McGregor has the opportunity due to his UFC 205 victory over Eddie Alvarez, which saw him claim the lightweight title and become the first fighter in the promotion’s history to hold two titles at the same time.

The Notorious one can either defend the featherweight or lightweight crown in his next outing inside the cage, which will take place after the birth of his first child.

No one knows what The Notorious’s intentions are or if he plans on relinquishing one of those belts.

One possible fight for McGregor could be against welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who he traded verbal jabs withs ahead of UFC 205.

The likelihood of that bout materialising is very slim given the fact McGregor has failed to defend the featherweight title.

But his striking coach, Owen Roddy, would like to see it happen.

“Maybe Woodley,” he told MMA Fighting’s Ariel when asked who he’d like to see McGregor fight next. “For me, for him to go up and get three belts, maybe Woodley.”

If the Woodley bout doesn’t come about, Roddy would like to see McGregor have a third war with Nate Diaz.

“But Diaz again is another great one. I think that’s what fans want to see. They want to see something special again.

“The Diaz fight again is special. The Woodley fight is special.”
