Conor McGregor Seeking Next Opponent, Not Waiting for Title Fight

October 15, 2014

Following his UFC 178 first-round finish of Dustin Poirier, UFC president Dana White said Conor McGregor was likely next in line for a title shot and would face the winner of champion Jose Aldo and top contender Chad Mendes. On Wednesday, McGregor said he would not be waiting on a title fight through a series of tweets.

Aldo and Mendes meet in the UFC 179 main event on Oct. 24 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. McGregor would rather say active than wait around on the sidelines for a title fight.

Expect an announcement of who he’ll face next in the coming days.
