McGregor confirms he wants UFC return

Conor McGregor

That's amusing. As soon as Max Holloway got hurt, Mark Henry, Frankie's coach, he told me to reach out to the UFC and ask if Conor could step in and I did call the UFC and they said, 'Dude, we can't even get him to fight in his own weight class.

Tonight, on Instagram, McGregor has responded to the decision, with a statement his fans are bound to be excited by.

Needless to say the offer has not been taken up.

McGregor was stripped of the featherweight belt late in 2016 after winning the lightweight strap off Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in NY.

Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will square off next at UFC 223 in April with the Interim Lightweight Title on the line.

We expect a response from McGregor in no time.

When McGregor does finally return to the Octagon, it is unlikely that we'll see a fight against Edgar.

Talking about a possible McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. rematch, he said that it would only make sense in the UFC. Because I am here. Here are five of the most likely candidates of a list of suitors that is long as McGregor's money.

McGregor's comments this week, though, suggest that he's definitely keen to come back. He's also toppled numerous Russian wrestlers over the course of his career so he's well versed in the style that McGregor might be forced to face should he draw Nurmagomedov in the future.

"Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in". Edgar eventually lost an interim featherweight title bout against Jose Aldo at UFC 200. That was his tenth straight victory in the division.

Even though White claims that fight is for the "real" belt, McGregor is still listed as the lightweight champion on the UFC's website and no official announcement has otherwise been made.

A blockbuster clash against the all-conquering Dagestani now looks more likely than ever.

He'll be back, but he'll be back without his titles. McGregor himself has always been quick to pour water on Nurmagomedov's claims that he's ready for a title shot.

No opponent has been lined up for the Irishman in either the UFC or boxing. McGregor and Diaz each beat other once in 2016, headlining two of the biggest pay-per-views in UFC history.
