On The Record

We’re very lucky to be in a position to have an immediate rematch. In most cases, fighters have to be patient in order to get that chance. Having an opportunity to reverse an unfavourable result under the same circumstances just a few months later provides us with a chance to show that ‘Win or Learn’ isn’t just a catchy phrase. It really is something we practice and we have done for a long time.”

In his exclusive column for The42, Conor McGregor’s head coach John Kavanagh looks ahead to the Irish MMA star’s upcoming bout at UFC 202.
