On Sunday evening, McGregor, the current ruler of the UFC’s lightweight division, claimed his next fight will be announced in the near future.

And less than 24 hours after McGregor’s message, which came via an Instagram post, UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley revealed that he’s started training for his next fight.

The timing of Woodley’s announcement, which also came via an Instagram post, led some fans to believe that McGregor’s next fight will see him lock horns with the St-Louis native, who was last in action at UFC 209.
