For those thinking Conor McGregor is crazy for attempting to become the first reigning multi-divisional champion at UFC 196 against lightweight champ, Rafael dos Anjos, you ain't seen nothin' yet.
According to McGregor's head coach, John Kavanagh, UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler could soon find himself in McGregor's crosshairs – assuming he can dethrone dos Anjos, of course.
"I've seen that rumors of Conor fighting Robbie Lawler for the 170-pound belt at UFC 200 on July 9 have been gathering momentum," Kavanaugh said. "It's not something we have discussed specifically but after Conor wins the lightweight belt, it wouldn't surprise me at all if the next fight is for the welterweight belt.
McGregor will attempt to make history on March 5 by becoming the first dual-weight champ in UFC history. The idea of McGregor chasing a third belt against Lawler is almost beyond comprehension.
