Conor McGregor's Coach Has Sent Fans Into Meltdown With Tweet About UFC 249

Conor McGregor's Coach Has Sent Fans Into Meltdown With Tweet About UFC 249

Conor McGregor's coach has sent Twitter into meltdown after a tweet about the potential main event of UFC 249.

The slated main event of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson looks to be off with Khabib stranded in his homeland of Russia.

Rumours of a new opponent for Ferguson have emerged and Ariel Helwani tweeted a poll of if fans would rather see 'El Cucuy' face off with Justin Gaethje or wait for 'The Eagle'.

John Kavanagh replied with the simple message of: "Maybe there's a third option..."

Fans have instantly jumped to the conclusion that Kavanagh could be referring to 'The Notorious' stepping in to fight Ferguson.




Kavanagh also tweeted he had an 'empty month' with an image of a calendar which has April 18th highlighted, the slated date of UFC 249.

McGregor's last bout in the UFC came in January when he comfortably defeated Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.

Despite Kavanagh's tweet, it's unlikely McGregor can take the fight as he's currently in his native Ireland with travel becoming increasingly difficult.

The 31-year-old has been vocal about combating the coronavirus in recent days and welcomed Ireland's move into lockdown to combat the virus.

Despite it looking very likely that Khabib won't be able to make the event, Ferguson still fired a fresh warning to the lightweight champion on Monday.

UFC president Dana White is still hellbent on running the show despite cancelling three events due to the current world pandemic.

What do you think the future holds for UFC 249?
