Kavanagh has a very clear idea of who he would like McGregor to fight. First of all, he spoke about Justin Gaethje. Then two rematches also interest him. Khabib Nurmagamedov and Nate Diaz would both be interesting fights but it is clear who he prefers.

“Three fights I would like to see, I’ll give you my top three. It would be Gaethje, I would love that fight, it would be awesome. Diaz, the trilogy, and the Khabib rematch,” he explained. “They would be the three fights I would be very interested in.”

A Gaethje fight is possible if he can beat Khabib. Otherwise, who knows what will happen next in the lightweight division? If Dan Hooker beat Dustin Poirier he would be the obvious next contender. However, the champion might want to take some top off until a clearcut contender emerges.
