Who wants to see a third fight for this and a decider? Conor McGregor has said that he will be no more Mr. nice guy in his next fight and bring back the bad boy, so we can expect a lot more trash talk and the Conor McGregor of old. Will that be a good thing, ever since losing hard to Khabib back in 2019 it has put a ‘bit of manners’ on the Crumlin born native a lot of people would say.
