The biggest draw in UFC today suffered his first loss under the Las Vegas-based promotion when Conor McGregor tapped out to Nate Diaz in the second round of their main event bout at UFC 196 last Saturday night. However, the bout was held at 170 lbs and was a non-title bout, which means there were little, if any, implications on Brand McGregor in the future. He is still the official 145 lbs division champ and untested at his preferred weight class of 155 lbs.
While the loss may have put a bit of a dent in the UFC’s hype behind Conor, he still remains their biggest name and a bankable draw in the lighter weight classes. The loss proving that the Irishman can be beaten, we take a look at the 5 possible bouts that would pique the interest of the UFC and the fans alike involving Conor in the coming year.
