Gaethje wants to put the final nail in Conor McGregor’s fighting career.
Gaethje fights Oliveira on Saturday at UFC 274 main event, Gaethje (23-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) Might want to fight Conner McGregor, if he wins against Oliveira and becomes champion, he has acknowledged that a McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) fight is a possibility in the future. “At the end of the day, after I win this fight there’s two people that are next in line,” Gaethje said on a podcast hosted by the NELK boys “There’s Beneil Dariush and (Islam) Makhachev and they need to fight each other. If Conor McGregor’s there, then I think he’s just as rightfully available as those two because they need to fight. So I say either everybody deserves it, or nobody deserves it right now. Someone needs to stand out and yeah, whoever. I want that opportunity to take him away from this sport forever.” “The best part: When you’re the champion, the target’s on your back,” Gaethje noted. “I’m not going to be looking back. At the end of the day, I will be the champ and whoever’s next will be next. I just gotta keep preparing myself, keep eating correctly, keep isolating myself, take away all distractions, and then I’ll be done one of these days.”
