As he recovers from a leg break sustained in a TKO loss to Dustin Poirier in July 2021, Conor McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) had his sights set on light heavyweight champion Charles Oliveira and welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Michael Bisping is being challenged by the likes of lightweight champion challenger Charles Oliveira, who will fight Islam Makhachev for the vacant championship at UFC 280 on October 22. Bisping is 1-3 in his last four fights. However, Sonnen believes McGregor’s reign as champion is over.
”Conor McGregor’s championship run is over,”Chael Sonnen said.
“That’s true. That’s mean. Conor did not come out and tell you guys because he’s not aware of it.”
”I say Conor McGregor’s championship time is done. Conor McGregor’s record setting isn’t,” Sonnen said.
“Conor McGregor’s live gate is not, Conor McGregor’s pay-per-view – these things are not done. His time in the spotlight and his time as a main event, these are not done – not at all.”
