Gunnar Nelson, UFC welterweight and friend of Conor McGregor’s for a decade, appeared recently on Submission Radio for a wide-ranging interview. Notorious is next having a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, perhaps in September. And after that, Nelson says that knowing McGregor, he might never fight again.
“You never know what he’s going to do next,” said Nelson. “If he beats Mayweather, I’m not sure that he will ever fight again, to be honest. I don’t know, but I could see him just floating off and doing something else crazy. But otherwise, maybe he’ll fight Khabib or something next if Khabib is in shape. I don’t know, there’s something wrong with [Khabib’s] kidneys or something after that cut. We’ll see. I don’t know what’s he gonna do. But he’s just focusing on one thing at a time and right now it’s Floyd Mayweather and I’m looking forward to that myself.”
