John Kavanagh believes Conor McGregor should return to UFC in the middleweight division after the retired Irishman showed off his immaculate physique on social media.
The former two-weight UFC world champion announced his retirement last month after failing to secure what he felt were ‘exciting’ fights against contenders in either the lightweight or welterweight divisions.
Commenting on McGregor’s social media post, Straight Blast Gym founder Kavanagh said The Notorious could move into the 180lb division should he decide to return to action.
McGregor posted a photo of himself looking in tip-top condition with the caption ‘Big Poppa Pump energy’, and Kavanagh responded underneath the post saying: “Skip 170 straight to 185?”
McGregor made his highly-anticipated return to UFC earlier this year when he destroyed Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in just under 40 seconds in a devastating display.
