McGregor may have just lost in UFC 196, but he’s still the man at 145lbs, and he’s weighing the options ahead of UFC 200.

[mks_dropcap style=”square” size=”52″ bg_color=”#1588db” txt_color=”#ffffff”]U[/mks_dropcap]FC 200 is set for July 9 in Las Vegas and has no fights on its card as of yet, but McGregor has the event in his sights for a featherweight return.

The Irishman would enter the fight as a major draw, but who he’ll stand across from inside the cage is still up in the air. McGregor weighs his options:

“It’s kind of hard not to give Aldo another go,” McGregor said. “He was 10 years undefeated but he pulls out a lot, he doesn’t show up a lot. Frankie, at least, gets in there and competes. I don’t know. I’ll keep my ear to the ground and see who the fans want to see the most. What are the fans most interested in to see me defend the belt against.”

Aldo has been campaigning for a title rematch the moment UFC 196 was over. Can Aldo, who’s coming off a 13-second knockout to the Irishman, convince the fans, McGregor, and the UFC to give him the title shot instead of Frankie Edgar? We’ll find out.
