Conor McGregor Retweets Footage Of Himself Discussing Fighting At Welterweight

Conor McGregor has reposted footage of himself explaining why he can be a dominant fighter in UFC's welterweight division.

McGregor has recently been offered title match by champion Kamaru Usman who has claimed 'The Notorious' has 'gone quiet' on accepting the challenge.

While McGregor hasn't publicly commented, he did retweet a clip from an interview with SevereMMA back in 2016 discussing fighting at welterweight.

He told Andrew McGahon: "Look at everyone down there, 180-200lbs.

"Easy, everybody. Everyone I'm sparring is well over welterweight, I've got middleweights coming in fresh to try and wear me down you know what I mean?

"Why not go up? They get slower and they get less free up there I feel, they're stiffer and even more stuck than the lightweight division.

"I'll keep going, keep training until all the f**king belts are wrapped up."

It's a fascinating insight into McGregor's mind as he tries to dominate as many weight divisions as possible in the UFC.

McGregor goes on to explain he will fight at 'any weight'.

"I can go all the f**king way... I'm afraid of no one, I'll go up and fight at any weight and anyone can step into the cage with me and see how they fare."

McGregor has gone on to fight at three different weights and adopted the 'Champ-champ' moniker after holding the UFC featherweight and lightweight title at the same time.

His last fight in the UFC was a quick victory over Donald Cerrone at welterweight and many have wondered if he'll stay at welterweight for the time being.

One man who McGregor will always have in his sights is current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The duo have gone back and forth on social media since their huge showdown at UFC 229 in 2018 and the latest shot thrown came from McGregor.

UFC's official Instagram account posted a throwback to the Russian recording 21 takedowns in three rounds against Abel Trujillo.

It's a fighting strategy McGregor doesn't seem too fond of as he left a sole laughing face emoji as a comment.
