”Yes, we’re currently in negotiations, we’re aiming for July, we’ll see what happens. I am staying ready. This morning I was doing incline sprints on the treadmill on my program, the McGregorFast program, today in a hotel room. So we’re staying on it, getting work in as we go.”
Despite his busy schedule with the promotion of Proper 12 whiskey, clubbing, and illegal actions and jail time, the former lightweight champion has kept himself ready for the action with the regular training.
