Conor McGregor Spars With Middleweight In New Video And Teases Move To 185lbs

Conor McGregor has released a new video of him sparring with a middleweight in the gym and has even claimed that he plans to fight at 185lbs at some point in the future.

“I’m gonna give middleweight a go at some point 100%,” McGregor wrote alongside the video.

“I’d be a big fridge at middleweight. But hot like oven same time, ye know yourself, catch it on PPV.

“Don’t know tho. It’d be hard work. Those rounds against those middle/LHW they were alternating fresh each round. I’ve put in psycho work doing this job over the years.”

McGregor has bulked up considerably during his time out recovering from the broken leg he suffered against Dustin Poirier last year.

The former 145lb and 155lb champion hopes to compete next year, with Dana White recently stating that he thinks that a fight with lightweight contender Michael Chandler would make for a good match-up, though there are plenty of other options on the table.
