After UFC president Dana White announced that Conor McGregor would not be making a comeback until the summer of the following year, McGregor surprising declares that he is ready to fight anyone, despite not having competed since breaking his leg against Dustin Poirier in July 2021. McGregor had hinted at a return on April 24, but according to White, a realistic timeframe for the Irishman’s return would be the summer of the following year. McGregor took to Twitter to express his readiness to accept any challenge at any moment.
He stated that the UFC wouldn’t even have to inform him about his opponent; they could simply announce the date, and he would be in the gym preparing strategies for the fight. McGregor also mentioned that April would be an ideal time for his return, as he has been training and feeling good. It is speculated that Michael Chandler, the No. 5 lightweight fighter, will be McGregor’s next opponent.
Chandler has a 2-3 record in the UFC and a 23-8 record in MMA. Since joining the promotion, he has been known for his exciting and dynamic fighting style and has received four Fight Night bonuses.
McGregor, who is considered one of the top five MMA fighters of all time by former UFC light heavyweight champion Jerry Prosa, would be a formidable opponent for Chandler. The UFC and its fans are eagerly awaiting McGregor’s return to the Octagon after his extended absence. McGregor’s impressive career, which includes being the only fighter in UFC history to hold simultaneous titles in two weight classes, has made him a beloved figure in the sport..
