Conor McGregor is getting ready to return to action next month, and after winning an ESPY award this week he sent out a message to all those who have had something to say about him since his UFC 196 loss to Nate Diaz.
McGregor hopes to avenge that loss at UFC 202, and we’ll find out whether he holds to his word of dropping back to featherweight to defend his title in a rematch with Jose Aldo.
Penick’s Analysis: McGregor’s either going to redeem himself in highly impressive fashion, or he’s going to take another hit to his claim as the man to beat in this game. If it’s the former, he’s back on top in a way that can elevate his star even further, and will set up a massive main event later in the year. If he loses, the Aldo fight is still big, but his star power certainly takes a hit with consecutive defeats to Diaz.
