Justin Gaethje has said that there’s zero likelihood of him combating Conor McGregor. In an interview with Brett Okamoto of ESPN MMA, ‘The Spotlight’ defined why the Irishman would refuse to combat him.
Gaethje claimed that if McGregor fights, will probably be towards guys like Nate Diaz or Jorge Masvidal. The 32-year-old thinks ‘The Infamous One’ will solely settle for favorable matchups and won’t combat guys like him:
“As a result of, I do not assume he’ll combat. You realize, if a few times and it will not be guys like me. Will probably be guys like Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, you already know, beneficial matchups.”
After two losses to Dustin Poirier, McGregor himself is aiming to get one over ‘The Diamond.’ Nonetheless, the Irishman is at present sidelined with a leg damage and is on the highway to restoration. It should take him a while to get again contained in the octagon. As soon as he does, although, he’ll seemingly cross paths with Poirier for the fourth time.
Nonetheless, Gaethje himself has referred to as for a second combat towards Poirier sooner or later down the highway.
Take a look at Justin Gaethje’s interview with ESPN MMA right here:

The final time Justin Gaethje was in motion contained in the octagon, he competed in the principle occasion of UFC 254. The previous interim UFC light-weight champion was in motion towards Khabib Nurmagomedov and hoped to win the undisputed belt.
