Think Conor McGregor is going to just quietly fade into the background after getting “knocked” by lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at the UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) event last October in Las Vegas?
The trash-talking Irishman is already back in the gym, which appears to be someone’s garage, and that may explain why he hasn’t seen or spoken to longtime coach John Kavanagh about his fighting future (or anything else).
McGregor teased “rockets” in his 2019 return to mixed martial arts (MMA), along with a sequel to his “Notorious” documentary and yet another addition to his Irish clan. Color me predictive, but I’m sure his Proper No. 12 will be making moves next year, as well.
Have a look:
Those rockets launched after the Mayweather fight.
His “Notorious” documentary hit theaters in Nov. 2017 (video).
We are entering Australia, The United Kingdom and Canada in 2019. With plans to go much, much further!— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) December 19, 2018

Told you that family was growing.
If promotion president Dana White has any say in the matter, McGregor will rematch Dustin Poirier at 155 pounds in the first quarter of 2019, while Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson settle their championship differences.
Unless something bad happens here.
