Following his victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246, Conor McGregor appears to be keeping his options open. In an interview with MMAFighting, his manager Audie Attar praised McGregor for not calling out anyone after his win and keeping his options open.

“Listen, I think a lot of Conor’s brilliance is his authenticity,” McGregor’s manager Audie Attar told MMA Fighting. “I think that response was authentic Conor. It wasn’t a premeditated or planned thing where he decided not to necessarily name anybody’s name but there are a dozen or so options out for him that make sense.

“Depending on which one makes the most sense depending on a number of different motivations, that’s who he’s going to go with. I don’t think it’s planned or premeditated but I would agree, it’s brilliant. Sometimes his authenticity is that brilliance.”

Who McGregor fights next remains to be seen. Potential options include Justin Gaethje, Dustin Poirier, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson.

Attar also noted that McGregor remains busy with other projects as well.

“You’re always busy with Conor. Conor is a global superstar,” Attar said. “Now we’ve launched a whiskey company, we have an apparel company, we have a fitness venture launching, we have all these different businesses going on. It’s always busy but I think when you throw in three fight cards for him as well for him to be on and headline, it takes things to a different level.”
