Conor McGregor is now the UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, the first person to ever accomplish such a feat. Eddie Alvarez is in the rear-view mirror. So what's next for "The Notorious."

First, McGregor is going to be busy with the birth of his first child in May. After that, he said UFC and WME-IMG brass must offer him a share of the company for him to compete again.

When all is said and done and McGregor is ready to get back into the Octagon, though, there are a list of opponents lining up for him. Two possible opponents are Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tyron Woodley. McGregor got into verbal altercations with both of them before the UFC 205 ceremonial weigh-ins Friday.

Most likely. But Khabib better shoot from the opening bell. His standup game got exposed in that first round with Johnson. Conor would do even better.

Once it hits the ground though, game over, man. Game over.

Essentially Khabib just needs to not get KO'd on his way into his first shot.

McGregor uses Khabib's supposed lack of drawing power and also his previous (exaggerated) period of inactivity as reasons to why Khabib shouldn't get a fight with him. I think McGregor is scared. If he gets stripped at 145lbs and loses to Khabib at 155lbs he will have nothing. I think that's why he is starting crap with Woodley. It's a diversion and it's a way to possibly get a 3rd title without facing guys that are dangerous to him. McGregor is not stupid in that aspect. He picks his spots. He might want to be careful with Woodley though. McGregor might end up waking up in the hospital after that one.
