But McGregor has confirmed that he is now poised to move back up to welterweight and proclaimed pound for pound King Usman.

He said The MacLife: “I think that’s the fight I have to do, I think me and Usman for the 170lb title for my comeback fight is the one I’m staring at.

“I’ve already won the 155lb title, I’ve gotten down to a lightweight frame. But I’m big now, I feel big, I feel strong, I feel healthy.

“I’ve got good energy, coming back from a horrible injury, I don’t want to exhaust myself.

“I feel confident against Usman, a jab-happy, sloppy, orthodox wrestler with no submissions whatsoever.

“What will he do, where is the danger? I see no danger in him, his bottom and pound are not strong.

“Also, he’s on the older side. In addition, the world (title) should be conquered again.

“The Triple Crown, no one has ever had three knockouts in three weight classes going up like I’ve already done.

“No one has ever won three UFC world titles in three divisions like I will if we have this fight.”
