According to John Kavanagh, Conor McGregor’s head coach at Straight Blast Gym in Ireland, he hasn’t seen his star pupil since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last month at UFC 229, despite McGregor's claims after the fight that he wanted an immediate rematch with “The Eagle” or barring that, an opponent that could get him back into title contention.
While McGregor is probably one of the busiest fighters in the world promoting his many ventures outside of the sport, the fact he spent two years inactive in MMA fight before his bout with Nurmagomedov has raised concerns from fans that his heart is not in the game.
Kavanagh recently appeared on the “True Geordie Clips” podcast and provided his update on.
“The honest answer is I don’t know,” Kavanagh said. “I haven’t actually spoken to him, I haven’t really seen him since the fight. I’ve hit the ground running, got so much on. He’s doing his whiskey tours of the world. It’s sold out, it’s crazy. I don’t know, you’re going to ask me to get into the mind of another human, and I just can’t do it. He said what he said and you’d have to get him as your next guest, fingers crossed, and ask him.”
