Conor McGregor says that getting a title fight is the only real option for his return bout, and he wants the championship matchup to be against UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
McGregor is eight months removed from suffering a fractured fibula during a July technical-knockout loss to Dustin Poirier. The defeat was a second straight, and the third in his last four bouts inside the Octagon.
The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion isn’t a logical option to be competing in a title fight any time soon, but when you are by far the biggest box-office draw in the sport, logic isn’t a prerequisite in matchmaking.
