Editors note: This item was posted before Conor McGregors victory at UFC 205.Conor McGregor is a clearly a man of many talents. And finding a way to repeatedly outdo himself is surely one of them.In January 2015, when McGregor leaped out of the Octagon following a knockout win in Boston to confront then-featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the crowd, it instantly felt like a watershed moment for his career and the sport as a whole. The UFC recognized it -- and booked a world media tour off it.The same can be said about McGregors performance against Chad Mendes at UFC 189 later that year -- smiling like a madman, challenging Mendes to come forward. A 13-second knockout of Aldo for the featherweight title came next. Then a Nate Diaz rivalry.A chance at a second title awaits McGregor in New York on Saturday when he faces lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.Every event has felt bigger than the one before it, which is not a given in this sport. But how will that continue if he wins on Saturday? Can it even? How do you top a second title, on a historic card, at a higher weight?Here are five possible options for McGregors next move, which could keep his stock trending upward.Challenge the winner of welterweight champion?Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen ThompsonWhats better than two titles? Three titles. And it wasnt long ago, at all, that McGregor was openly talking about beating former welterweight champ Robbie Lawler.But those back-to-back fights at 170 pounds against Diaz, who is not even a natural welterweight, seemed to change McGregors mindset on the weight class. Its not that he wont ever go there again, but perhaps facing the No. 1-ranked guy is not the route to go.Attempting to win UFC titles in three weight classes would be so massive that its almost an unfathomable feat. But this path feels (and always has felt) a little crazy.Nate Diaz trilogyIf my recollection is correct, the first two werent bad. And they also performed well at the box office. According to the UFC, they actually account for two of the top three pay-per-view sellers in company history. So Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz is a proven cash cow.If were assuming McGregor wins at UFC 205, that means a trilogy bout would be for a lightweight title, which sweetens an already sweet pot.Diaz already has said hes not interested in fighting anyone but McGregor. And after their rematch at UFC 202, McGregor referenced a trilogy fight but said it would take place at 155 pounds.This fight always will be there for the UFC, though, and it might not make sense to cram the whole thing into such a short time frame.Nick DiazThis one writes itself. It then edits itself, publishes itself, designs a fancy cover for itself, and sells itself.Nates older brother, Nick, is one of the most polarizing lightning rods in the sports history. Stick him next to McGregor and anything can happen. Security didnt even let Nick in the building when Nate and McGregor weighed in for their last fight in August.The issue here, of course, is also what would make it great. McGregor taking on the older brother of his biggest rival to date would be a fascinating narrative -- but since Nick is Nates older brother, its a little doubtful hed take a big payday away from him.Just like Nate called Georges St-Pierre one of his brothers fights, Nick might feel the same way about McGregor. But speaking of St-Pierre ...Georges St-PierreIt feels like a long, long time ago St-Pierre showed up cageside at McGregors first fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 196 in March.When something like that happens, speculation is sure to catch fire -- and it did. Fans immediately envisioned posters of McGregor and St-Pierre squaring off. And even though you figure that fight would have to take place at 170 pounds, you also figure its one McGregor would move up for.But McGregors loss to Diaz, the subsequent rematch and St-Pierres contract situation with the UFC (the two sides were unable to come to a deal that would have brought him back at UFC 206) have made the whole thing a bit clouded.At the end of the day, its a money fight for both and thats enough to make it a very real possibility. But theres also one more option for McGregor ...Take a breakMcGregor zigs when others zag. When Aldo pulled out of their scheduled title fight at UFC 189 last year, McGregor took a fight against Mendes and risked his title shot, something others wouldnt have done. He did the same thing in March, when he fought Diaz after Rafael dos Anjos got injured.He has kept up an insane pace for two years. We tend to break up things in calendar years, but if you look strictly at the past 12 months for McGregor, youd be looking at a year that is arguably one of the most unbelievable in combat sports history.So, although it goes against traditional thinking, consider a 12-month break to recharge and let the chips fall -- they do say absence makes the heart grow fonder. And McGregor has teased some kind of announcement after this weekend.McGregor has said he always intended to set the game on fire and then be gone. Maybe gone can be applied in a temporary sense. Hes a brilliant businessman, and part of business is supply and demand. Remove supply, demand tends to go up. Wholesale Tigers Jerseys .
