Watch: Conor McGregor Outlines Exactly What's Going To Happen After UFC 194

The weight-cut is beginning to take hold ahead of tonight's UFC 194 weigh in but Conor McGregor still knows how to put on a show. The interviews may be incessant but McGregor sat down for one last chat with Megan Olivi and he's back in Mystic Mac mode.


A couple of weeks ago, we heard McGregor's plans for the aftermath of UFC 194. After he KOs Jose Aldo in Las Vegas on Saturday night, he'll look to the lightweight division and the winner of the title fight between Rafael Dos Anjos and Donald Cerrone.

If Aldo puts it up to him, he did concede that a rematch would be on the cards but, given his natural weight, 155lb seems to be the only logical step. However, McGregor has been clear that he doesn't plan on giving up his featherweight career either.

As far as he's concerned, he'll win the unified title.

I would love that lightweight world title. I came into the promotion as a two weight world champion and I said from day one I was going to replicate that.

Now there seems to be an opportunity for that lightweight belt. It's a division that's lacking numbers so you put the king of numbers in there.

The manner in which I defeat Jose, there will be no rematch. I feel maybe he will retire after the fight and then I will take that lightweight belt.

In the meantime, while I get that lightweight belt, I will await a featherweight contender to emerge. Then I will go back down and, while I'm back down, a contender will emerge from the lightweight division and I will go back up.

That is how I see my career playing out for the next while.

It's a big ask but if the fight with Aldo does go the way he's expecting it to, would anyone bet against him?
