Gunnar Nelson was one of the most glaring omissions in conor-mcgregor ’s UFC 229 Circle due to a knee injury he lasted, which also ruled him out of a high stakes welterweight battle with Neil Magny in UFC Liverpool.
“That has been mostly for my knee, you realize,” he also told Peter Carroll when asked regarding the UFC 229 Circle about a recent installment of Eurobash. “Once the complete [camp] was first starting, I wasn’t training, ” I couldn’t do much plus it seemed like Conor features a pretty great team , as usual. ”
Nelson noted he wanted he had been involved following the fight had happened, leading to the Russian’s defense of their UFC lightweight title.
“After the fight I had been believing, & & lsquo;Man, I will ’ve been there,’ also I had been saying to my coach John [Kavanagh],” he recalled. “He also explained me, ‘To be reasonable, you were hurt, you couldn’t really train. ’ It’d have been the last bit of the camp I might have been able to get involved in, I imagine. ”
But with a clean bill of health insurance and having already made his powerful return with a stunning triumph over Alex Oliveira in UFC 231, Nelson insisted he can do everything within his power to help the Irishman should he get the rematch he’s searching for.
Nelson said: ldquo;Surely, to get the rematch, I’ll soon be there with Conor becoming ready. ”
