Mcgregor (22-4 MMA, 10-2 CFU) and Poirier (26-6 MMA, 18-5 UFC) will have their rematch, so Javier Mendez gave his opinion. At UFC 257, the Irishman will have a unique opportunity to get close to the title again, although his rival will not make things easy for him. Now, with a rather heavy preparation that both have had, this January 23 they will meet again after six years. Therefore, the renowned coach made it clear who should be the next contender.
For that reason, Mendez He began by explaining: “Let’s face it, if in fact he’s not coming back, and we know for sure, and I don’t know, but if in fact he isn’t, then the legitimate person who should be fighting for the title is Dustin against anyone. . So for me, they got one of the right people there. Conor It would be the second correct, or it could be Justin Gaethje or it could be Michael Chandler. Does not matter”.
«Or (Charles) Oliveira. What matters is that Dustin He’s on the hunt for the title because he’s the one who, in my opinion, most deserves a title shot. I don’t know, because we never talked about it, but I can only tell you this. His father, his vision was for Khabib to fight GSP and fold at 30-0. So if Dana has something to do with something, it’s not a lot of money because I don’t think that’s the case, “he also expressed.
Will the belt be vacant?
“It would be something in the sense of something that interests him a lot. So maybe a GSP fight. I don’t know, I guess. But for that to happen, he would have to go to the number one person he promised to retire to, and that would be his mother, not me. I’m on board for whatever you want to do. So he would have to clarify with his mother if he wants to do something, “he also added to his words, making it clear that he would like to see Khabib again.
To end with your words, Javier Mendez stated the following in this regard: “I can only be guided by what is in the media and what he has been saying. When have we known that he did not do what he said? I don’t know, I don’t remember a time when I said something and it wasn’t serious. ” Of course, despite what happens in January, Mcgregor and Poirier they could be lightweight champions, a category brimming with good talent.
