Fans of Conor McGregor can rejoice as the Irish MMA sensation is gearing up for his highly anticipated showdown with Michael Chandler. Despite some initial doubts surrounding his absence from the USADA testing pool, McGregor took to social media to provide an exciting update on his future in the UFC.

It’s been a while since McGregor last graced the octagon, with his unfortunate loss and leg fracture during the bout against Dustin Poirier in July 2021. However, after undergoing intense physical therapy and rehabilitation, the fiery Irishman is ready to make his grand return.

McGregor Reveals Exciting Update on His Next Fight

Although McGregor missed the deadline to enroll in the USADA drug testing pool, which jeopardized his fight against Chandler, his recent tweet stating, “I look forward to my upcoming fight. I am well in preparation,” suggests that he’s actively working towards his comeback this year.

While some raised concerns about his absence from the USADA’s online database since the third quarter of 2021, it’s important to note that exceptional circumstances can warrant exemptions from testing rules, as was previously granted to Brock Lesnar when he returned to the UFC in 2016.

Although McGregor is currently on a two-fight losing streak, having experienced defeats against Poirier, he remains confident in his abilities. His last victory dates back to January 2020 when he triumphed over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246. Now, McGregor is determined to regain his winning form and prove his critics wrong.

As fight enthusiasts eagerly await further details on the bout between McGregor and Chandler, both fighters share the belief that their clash will unfold in 2023. The anticipation within the UFC community is palpable, as everyone eagerly anticipates the return of the charismatic Irish warrior.
