UFC expert and former two-division champion Daniel Cormier believes that lightweight title holder Islam Makhachev should face returning mega star Conor McGregor in his next fight.

Makhachev defeated his rival Alexander Volkanovski after just a few minutes this past Saturday, and could quite possibly return to the cage sooner rather than later.

“I think Islam should fight Conor next,” Cormier recently said on DC & RC. “Because listen to this now, it’s built-in. It’s the biggest money fight the UFC can make and why not? You have Islam Makhachev who looks to be a guy who’s gonna be a dominant champion.”

“In order to have that dominant champion go to the next level of superstardom, you need a foil. You need a guy that can elevate him. The guy that can elevate him to that level is Conor McGregor.

Conor vs Islam “makes all the sense in the world”

Cormier claimed that Conor McGregor pushed both Dustin Poirier and Khabib Nurmagomedov to stardom, and is convinced that he will do the same for Makhachev.

“We’re not even talking about all the other levels at which this just makes sense. You have Islam fighting Conor after the issues Conor has had with Khabib and everything else. You have Islam fighting Conor, the biggest star in mixed martial arts. Conor coming back to the UFC. It makes all the sense in the world.”
