I think this dude is so whacked out right now between not fighting, drinking booze (and who knows what else?) and just, generally, not being good to his body, mind, and soul. He's going to get his ass kicked when he comes back. Just my opinion.
Gallagher is one of McGregor's boys and another SBG standout, so definitely makes sense he made that Dublin show. I haven't seen anything to suggest he's gotten past his recent meltdowns either tbh. I do think he can win his next fight if they manage to line up Frankie Edgar. Frankie's too small and more chinny than people credit him for imo. If it's Conor vs one of Gaethje, Cowboy or Nate...I got him losing unless he comes back better than he was and we both agree he'll probably be worse, not better.
Sidenote: We got UFC 243 coming up. The card looked a lot more even with Holm/Pennington included, but you really can expose how shallow a PPV is when one of the main card fights drops out and everything takes a hit in quality. I'll go over a couple of the fights later this week. Luckily, we don't have to fret about MSG this year. UFC in NYC is stacked enough that a Conor McGregor bus attack couldn't take away the quality.
