White: 'Conor McGregor is in shape, he is good to go' and could fight in June

UFC president Dana White has revealed that Conor McGregor is in top shape and is pestering him for a contest on 'Fight Island'. '       McGregor has been frozen out of the lightweight title picture for the time being with Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje preparing to meet at UFC 249 this Saturday for the interim belt. The winner will be able to have a shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov's title so McGregor will have to bide his time or take a fight against a lower ranked opponent. Having made his successful return to the octagon in January with a 40-second demolition of Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone, McGregor spoke about competing three or four times this year.  The coronavirus crisis has scuppered those plans but clearly he wants to stay busy and it remains to be seen whether the UFC will be willing to take the financial hit of putting the 'Notorious' to work in an arena without fans.   Related: 19 of the fastest knockouts in UFC history [Microsoft GES] Johnson (R) knocked out Reiner with a two-punch KO in just 13 seconds on his UFC debut in Hollywood, Florida, U.S., on June 12, 2007.
