Ask us for our preference, selling whiskey or being the target of punches and kicks from crazed opponents in the UFC octagon, and we will gladly offer you a sample of the finest blend ever to make it past the borders of Scotland.
We might have one ourselves.
Conor McGregor is mostly silent of late, at least, in our circles, but we hope to hear from him soon, as our glasses are almost dry.
McGregor has been making the promo circuit for his own brand of firewater since he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October of 2018.
According to remarks published by the New York Post of an interview with McGregor coach and friend John Kavanagh, McGregor might need another coach if he chooses to continue in his brutal sport.
“Well, he would certainly have to convince me to go again,” Kavanagh said. I love the whole journey we’ve had, but I’d need a good ‘why’. It might be [Nate] Diaz again because he promised that fight. It might be a rematch with Khabib [Nurmagomedov]. But if it was just, ‘Well, they want me to fight that guy,’ I think I’d say, ‘I wish you the best.’”
Kavanagh was stating that he did not want to see McGregor back in action to face some obscure contender for the simple sake of a paycheck.
A return to fighting by McGregor is an if proposition first and a when proposition second.
Some of the others in McGregor’s weight class, but well outside his oratory league, have been trying to goad McGregor into a fight, but so far with no success.
As long as he is thrifty, and the whiskey is smooth, McGregor does not need to take the risk of another shot, such as the one Nurmagomedov landed on him in October.
There are more and better shots to be taken, shots that in sufficient quantity can cause a headache, but seldom involve loss of blood.
