As previously reported, Conor McGregor is in negotiations for his next UFC fight and is hoping to return in July. McGregor was rumored to be facing Donald Cerrone, but the fight fell through as McGregor reportedly didn’t want to fight in the co-main event. Now, the former double champ has changed his tune.

“Me sliding into the co-main event … it’s now boosting [the UFC’s] brand over fighter rhetoric that they have. And, there’s no problem with that,” said Conor (via BJPenn.com) “If they want me to push that and I have no problem with pushing that, give me my rightful shares in the UFC company. That’s all I ask. You can put me on the first fight of ESPN+, no problem … let’s see how it goes … but I’m still prepared and ready to fight.”

There is no word on when McGregor will fight next.
