After adding to his undefeated run, with a submission over Russell Doane in UFC 204, Bektic says he’s ready to take on McGregor.
Post-fight I went over to Dana White and told him, ‘Give me some chicken. It’s my mom’s 50th birthday, and I just told him. Back in July last year, when [Chad] Mendes fought McGregor, before that fight I went up to Dana and shook hands with him and told him, ‘Hey Dana, I’m the one. I’m going to be your champ.’ He didn’t remember, but I reminded him of that today..I’m building a big foundation. Skyscrapers take time, so I’m going with the flow…I think [Alvarez vs. McGregor] is a great fight. I like McGregor. He’s doing his thing right now, and Alvarez, he’s a gangster. He’s a former Bellator champ, and he’s a UFC champ now…[I’ll fight McGregor] if he’s there. I’m not sure what his plans are. He won the featherweight belt, and it’s been a long time, and he hasn’t defended it. I don’t even know how long it’s been since he fought at featherweight. I would beat him now. I’d beat anybody.
