Conor McGregor's Next Opponent Odds

mcgregor next opponent odds

What next for Conor McGregor?

As Conor McGregor went crashing down onto the Octagon canvas at UFC 257, the entire MMA community rose to their feet, head in hands.

For the first time in the Irishman’s career, he had been defeated via TKO/KO - the man dubbed the organisation’s greatest ever striker, had been outstruck. 

The loss itself was not necessarily the biggest shock, we have seen McGregor enter the cage or ring before, and fall short. It was, however, the manner of the defeat. 

Dustin Poirier executed the perfect gameplan, scoring an early takedown and chopping down the legs with some vicious kicks. By the end of round one, McGregor was severely compromised, allowing the American to surge forward and land his heavy shots. As the saying goes, pressure makes diamonds. 

A devastating loss has dinted the pristine Notorious brand, leaving many questioning as to what happens next. Many, in the former champ champ’s position, would call it a day and live off his prize funds, but McGregor wants to stay active. 

On the back of his desire to stay in the game, we’ve looked into McGregor’s next fight odds on SkyBet. 

Quick rematch on the cards?

On the back of their loss, both McGregor and his head coach, John Kavanagh, have stated their desire for an immediate reach. 

The history books say 1-1 between the pair, with a knockout each to share. A trilogy would see either fighter take home the bragging rights for good, but does it really make sense?

Poirier is now 7-1 from his last eight bouts in the Lightweight division, and the fact that he hasn’t yet got gold around his wait, is somewhat criminal. He convincingly dispatched McGregor, moving him above Justin Gaethje in the rankings to number one, with the champion Khabib Nurmagomedov looking to stay retired. 

The Diamond’s next bout would surely have to be for the belt, and McGregor has demanded their trilogy to be for exactly that. However, on the back of a KO defeat, the majority of fans have not warmed to this idea. 

It would seem as though the ball is in the court of Poirier’s for this one, and he is 3/1 to face McGregor next.

CONOR MCGREGOR TO FIGHT DUSTIN POIRIER NEXT IN THE UFC IN 2021 @ 3/1

Nate Diaz the favourite

On the note of trilogies, the UFC could make their biggest one in history. Nate Diaz’s name has recently been picking up traction, with many lightweights choosing to call the fan-favourite out. 

At 2/1, the bookmakers most fancy the American to square off with McGregor next, to finalise their historic beef. Diaz famously submitted Mystic Mac back in March 2016, gripping the attention of the sporting world. 

All eyes were on the rematch, with McGregor risking it all, just five months after. Many repeated the exact same outcome - Diaz would ride the early wave and capitalise in the later rounds, exposing the Irishman’s limited gas tank. 

McGregor though, slightly edged it, dropping the American twice and clinching a big victory via a majority decision. It’s all perfectly poised for a third fight, of which fans have been longing for, for almost five years now. 

It could serve as the perfect bounce-back fight for McGregor - Diaz loves to stand and trade and despite his ability on the ground, rarely ever looks to shoot. The Irishman tends to favour himself over such an opponent, and he may see it as the best avenue to get back inside the win column. 

Michael Chandler odds to fight McGregor next

Prior to UFC 257, Dan Hooker said that he is going to break the UFC’s ‘new toy’. Well, that toy is now at the top of most people’s wish-list. 

Michael Chandler’s first round KO of the Hangman has seen his name thrown right into the mix, solidifying his position in the top five of the division. 

In terms of facing McGregor next though, this seems a very unlikely route. Chandler seems to have his sights set on Justin Gaethje or Charles Oliveira, as a win would then set him up for a title bout. Alternatively, Khabib may even choose Iron Mike for his own final farwell.

Ultimately though, the American is unlikely to cross paths with McGregor, as there isn’t much of a logistical narrative to pursue with this bout. At 10/1, the bookmakers also share this belief. 

Fireworks to fly with Justin Gaethje?

“I love seeing a loudmouth get knocked out, there is nothing that makes me happier. Seeing a piece of sh*t get put down, that was great, I loved it.” These were the words of Justin Gaethje on ESPN’s YouTube channel, in light of McGregor’s recent loss. 

The American certainly didn’t feel the need to hold back, also claiming that the Notorious ‘doesn’t want to fight him’ and 'never has'. 

With regards to a match-up, this would certainly be an explosive bout, with the two holding serious power at 155. We saw just how clinical Gaethje can be, during his emphatic victory over Tony Ferguson last year, and despite McGregor’s recent outcome, that left hand will never be overlooked.

At 4/1, the bookmakers are giving this potential fight a chance to happen soon. It would seemingly be a case of McGregor’s choice though, as Gaethje is simply waiting in the wings for an opponent. 
Both men need to come off a win, to justify a shot at the title next, so it would be one that makes senses on paper. 

Other Odds

A surprise name at 6/1 is Tony Ferguson. El Cucuy is coming off the back of two consecutive losses, with many stating that his best days are behind him.

The brutal beating from Gatehje has evidently taken its toll, with Ferguson looking a shadow of his former-self against Charles Oliveira at UFC 256. It may sound rather ludicrous to say this, but McGregor wouldn’t gain much from a win over Ferguson, *hides from the hardcores*.

The aforementioned Olivieria is an interesting name though, but on the back of an 8-fight win streak, the Brazilian has to be next in line against Poirier for the belt. At 12/1, the former is the biggest priced fighter on the market, to face McGregor next.
