Iain Kavanagh was the third winner in the Ireland based conversation exhibition, The Late Late ShowOn Friday night, they considered Conor McGregor's poem, the future with the Irish Irish out, and the impact of “The Notorious” on MMAs in Ireland.
Kavanagh said he had met Mr McGregor for the first time on the Friday night.
“It's just back from the USA; he's been in Miami for a little training over the last few months, ”Kavanagh told Ryan Tubridy on Friday. The Late Late Show.
I had a small amateur concert on Friday night and showed up. I didn't know it was going to be there, it looked up and that was the first time I saw it in time. Some texts were on the move, and I hope to sit down next week to see what is in the plan. ”
“[It had been] months [since I saw him], ”He said. “It had been in Miami to rest, but also training. Physically, I didn't see it in a lot of time. ”
With regard to a short retirement of McGregor, Kavanagh picked up as he asked if his most famous pupil was still inspired after he had made the most of the sport.
“You know how much I can do it,” he replied, “when he was asked about a short time McGregor put in. “It is strange, when he won the second world title, as a coach it is almost like a fruit, as he did everything he wanted to do; won the world's titles, broke all the seminal records in the UFC, made enough money to retire a little time, ”said Kavanagh. t
“There is MMA training for fitness or recreation, but training for professional fighting is very hard, it's very difficult for the body. You lose all the desire to do everything as it is about making titles or making money; he did so, so what was he going to encourage himself, to get kept going through? '
The SBG main coach went on to say that McGregor's commitment to competition has been “revitalized”.
“I think revival has been in love and love and I think if the right competition comes, something that is very interesting for him, a good challenge, something the people will bring forward. … It would be a big surprise if it doesn't fight again… as soon as possible … it might even be the summer, ”said Kavanagh.
As for commenting on himself and MacGregor in the different ways, it seemed that Kavanagh was hopeful of taking forward a move.
“I'm sure that is true,” said Kavanagh when he was asked if he would be in McGregor's corner when he returns to action.
Kavanagh also picked up on the negative effect that has been placed on the way in which MMAs are conducted in Ireland.
"I do [care], I'm doing that, ”he said. “[I care about] an understanding of sport; it is all around Conor. It is about to end. I think, everybody in Ireland who is involved in MMA, I am very grateful for what Conor has done. He made a great deal of action… but he has made mistakes that I don't agree. I know they regret that it is paid for them, it tries to learn from them and is trying to move on.
“I hope we can go back to doing positive things; the aims, work ethic, for something that is impossible. These are the features I like at Conor that I love to talk when I am in the children's classes … I know that I need to set a good example of them and I know That is what Conor is doing too. That's what I want to go back to… the many good features he has. ”
