UFC news: Conor McGregor is looking in great shape ahead of proposed Manny Pacquiao fight

Conor McGregor has been busy showing off his ripped physique as he begins preparations for his potential crossover fight with Manny Pacquiao in the Middle East.

‘The Notorious’ had supposedly retired from fighting this summer following his impressive victory at UFC 246 over Donald Cerrone.

However, according to McGregor’s MMA coach John Kavanagh, a deal has been done.

Speaking to Boxing Productions TV, Kavanagh said: “I believe both boxers have agreed fundamentally, behind the scenes there are a lot of terms and conditions and legal terms but I believe it will happen.

“I think it might be early next year but the wheels are in the motion and it looks like I’ll be coaching boxing again.”

The Pac-Man has also since confirmed this fight will go ahead with a statement from his office saying: “For the sake of all the Filipino Covid-19 victims, Senator Manny Pacquiao will be fighting UFC superstar Conor McGregor next year.

“The huge portion of his earnings will proceed to those who are affected nationwide by the pandemic.”
