Joaquin Buckley shifts to Burns after unrealistic McGregor callout

Joaquin Buckley is aware of he’s not going to struggle Conor McGregor, but he referred to as him out anyway.

The rising UFC welterweight contender used his in-octagon, post-fight interview at UFC on ESPN 56 to name out McGregor. Though he bought a formidable win over Nursulton Ruziboev (34-9-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) within the co-main occasion of the cardboard, UFC CEO Dana White shortly shut down his request – one thing Buckley (19-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) anticipated.

“I’m positively not going to get that, however why not take probabilities, proper?” Buckley stated on the UFC on ESPN 56 post-fight press convention. “I’ve been doing it up till this second, so why not make the most important callout that I could make? If Michael Chandler doesn’t present up for the struggle, ‘New Mansa’ might be prepared.”

McGregor is anticipated to make his return at UFC 303 on June 29. He takes on Michael Chandler in a welterweight bout.

Buckley did have a plan B conserving in thoughts how far he was reaching within the McGregor callout.

“Gilbert Burns, I feel it’s a lovely struggle, a lovely matchup,” Buckley stated. “I don’t know when he’s going to be cleared or when he’s going to be prepared, however Gilbert Burns, positively.”
