When will Conor McGregor return to the UFC? Who will he fight? These questions are still unanswered.
What we do know is that McGregor has been back in training for some time now as he strives to be 100% after his bad leg fracture.
McGregor broke his leg last July in an injury TKO against Dustin Poirier, which occurred in the closing stages of the first round at UFC 264. McGregor’s leg broke completely in the shin of gruesome way, putting him on a long road to recovery.
McGregor’s options are seemingly limitless as he has been called up by Charles Oliveira, Michael Chandler, Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson at lightweight this year. McGregor, meanwhile, said he would “come back” in a welterweight title fight against Kamaru Usman. And, of course, there’s always the possibility of a trilogy with Nate Diaz (if the two can get along).
McGregor, who has gained considerable weight, appears to be in excellent physical condition. He’s spent much of this year recounting his training on his road to recovery, which you can check out below from February.
