"Yeah. The guy's earned it, man. I would love to meet with him."

Speaking after beating Henderson at Bellator 243, the Florida-based fighter talked up a fight against Conor McGregor.

"As far as that fight goes, I finish Conor in under two [rounds]. Shades of [Nate] Diaz 1, hit him with hard shots, take every single one of his.

"He's got that sneaky strong, thick left hand he throws and it's straight. Avoid that, wear him down a little bit, make him see Jesus, put him out."
