Following Conor McGregor’s unanimous decision win over Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26, the rising fighter’s coach apparently thinks a bout with Diego Bradao sounds good, and the latter evidently agrees.
McGregor’s trainer John Kavanagh relayed the idea to “UFC Tonight”, and now in a follow up report from MMA Fighting.com, here’s what Branado had to say about the proposed fight.
“I’m in the UFC to fight the best,” said Brandao, who has gone 3-1 now in the UFC since winning TUF 14. “Everybody knows that my dream is to become the UFC champion. I already won The Ultimate Fighter, now I’m going after the title.”
“I always liked challenges, and I believe a fight against McGregor would be a good challenge for me,” the featherweight added. “If he wants to fight me, I also want to fight him. Hey, McGregor, let’s make it happen. It would be perfect for UFC 168 in Vegas. I wanna do a great show.”
So, there you have it. On paper it certainly seems like a good fight in terms of what each man brings to the Octagon. Now it will be interesting to see if the UFC agrees.
