ABU DHABI, U.A.E. -- When Conor McGregor is involved, there is always potential for hyperbole. When you have a star that big, everything tends to dial up a notch -- including any comments related to him or an upcoming fight. But allow me to say, I have genuinely looked forward to this moment since the end of 2016.
Whether this all comes to fruition, only time will tell. But I believe we might finally realize the true fighting potential of McGregor in 2021. If you go back to the end of 2016, McGregor was the reigning featherweight and lightweight champion.
