Katie Taylor vs Ronda Rousey. Two Olympic medalists taking each other on in the Octagon. I'm already excited at the slender possibility this might happen one day.
Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh was on Newstalk this morning and gave us a little morsel which suggests Katie Taylor might, sometime, become a UFC fighter.
Katie Taylor has actually shown some interest in possibly training in mixed matrial arts one day. I've been speaking to people.
So who knows, we might get her over when she wins her next championship.
Unfortunately, Ivan Yates quickly moved on to the next topic and did not enquire any further about the possibility.
Taylor definitely has an interest in MMA. She recently tweeted her respect for Conor McGregor following his win at UFC Boston.
No one in the history of Irish sport has captivated the public like @TheNotoriousMMA has. You're an inspiration!
