McGregor, who knocked out Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in just 40 seconds at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday for his first win since 2016, may be ready to fight again before summer.

“I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t compete before the summer,” McGregor’s coach John Kavanaugh said on Monday, via ESPN. “He’s definitely going to be competing before the summer.”

  UFC 246 fight card -- Conor McGregor vs. Donald Cerrone: Five storylines to follow for the first PPV of 2020 'Notorious' will make his return to the Octagon for the first time since a defeat submission lossMcGregor (21-4) will enter the Octagon for just the second time since 2016 when he faces veteran Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (36-13, 1 NC) in a welterweight main event from T-Mobile Arena.

McGregor had a similar response when asked about his next bout after the fight on Saturday, saying he would “possibly” fight before summer, though nothing was set in stone.

He wasn’t, though, going to take much time off at all.

“Very quickly,” McGregor said on ESPN after the fight when asked when he wanted to fight again. “God willing, I came out fresh here tonight. I’ll have a celebration tonight, a little celebration, spend time with the family, and then back to training. I’m sure we’ll talk within the next week and see what happens.”

There are several options for McGregor’s next fight on the table, including Jorge Masvidal — who was ringside for the bout on Saturday — and even former featherweight champion Jose Aldo, among others. Floyd Mayweather even seemed interested in stepping into the ring again for a rematch with McGregor, posting a cryptic photo to his Instagram on Saturday night hinting at another bout sometime this year with both him and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

While a lot still needs to be determined before McGregor does fight again, his manager, Audie Attar, agreed that it was “absolutely” a possibility that he’d fight again before the summer — as long as he’s both ready to fight and excited about his opponent.

“A prepared Conor McGregor is a Conor McGregor I think everyone wants to see,” Attar said, via ESPN. “Let’s see what motivates him. That’s the most important thing.

“It could be Jorge [Masvidal]. It could even be [Jose] Aldo. Right now, what we need to do still is enjoy the moment, process everything that happened and get back to work.”
