Rafael Fiziev has issued a problem Conor McGregor.
After Fiziev’s matrix transfer went round social media as we speak, the development occurring partially as a result of the truth that he’s combating this weekend, McGregor defined how he would make the light-weight pay for that transfer. In retaliation, Fiziev is hoping he and McGregor can throw down, and that he can show the Irishman cannot do it.
“Man in the event you discover that they’re pullers of the rear excessive kick, change it to an axe kick! Makes up the bottom whereas coming down on high of them as they’re leaned again,” McGregor commented.

Would Rafael Fiziev and Conor McGregor ever combat?
Though Rafael Fiziev is a fellow light-weight contender, a combat between him and McGregor appears impossible to occur.
First off, McGregor is set to rematch Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 and is simply interested by bouts in opposition to respected fighters as he seems to be to reclaim the light-weight title. Sadly for Fiziev, he’s removed from that as he solely has three UFC fights and isn’t at present ranked.
Nonetheless, if Fiziev is ever going to combat McGregor he must win his upcoming combat in opposition to Renato Moicano on the UFC 256 major card. Moicano is a former top-five featherweight contender and is 1-Zero since shifting as much as light-weight. If he can get previous the Brazilian, he may earn a ranked opponent and begin to transfer up the ranks himself. Probably, someday he and McGregor could share the octagon, nevertheless it appears a couple of years from occurring.
Conor McGregor, in the meantime, is about to combat Poirier subsequent month. Will probably be his first combat in over a yr after his TKO win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246. The Cerrone combat marked his return to the game after he was submitted by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 for the light-weight title.
