Conor McGregor Shaves Head, Claims He’s Boxing Another Legend

Videos by OutKick

What’s Conor McGregor trying to tell us with the new shaved head look he revealed this week? Comeback? Just annoyed with the hair and looking to mix it up a little bit? Hungry Conor? Are we about to hear about a fight island matchup that makes McGregor a pile of money? It sure feels like it.

Believe it or not, Notorious fought in 2020. It was a 40-second TKO of Cowboy Donald Cerrone back on January 18 where McGregor burned more calories warming up in the dressing room than he did in the ring.

“I was pushing hard for the season. Multiple opponents, multiple dates offered throughout,” McGregor said Friday night on Twitter. “All to take place back to back. Then when covid hit and the talk was that I would have to wait for crowds again, I walked away from the situation. I was waiting long enough at that stage.”

He also hinted at what could be coming next.

“I’m boxing Manny Pacquiao next in the Middle East,” Notorious said. “It will be a true honour to have faced two of the greatest boxers of the modern era, afraid of a fight.”

The last time McGregor got in a boxing ring was 2017 when he suffered a 10th round TKO at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

  1. Cerrone was way over hyped a really pathetic showing by him now even at his age Manny would destroy Conor would not play with him like Mayweather did. Manny is world class speed and power and should not diminish his stature by fighting Conor. I like Conor in the UFC and there he should be fighting a top 5 guy that’s where he belongs.

  2. Yes, Greg re: Cerrone. His fight last week was a dud as well. I would love to see two things. One, Manny dismantle Connor and two; me in those short shorts Connor is sporting in that pic!
