Sean O’Malley has shared his thoughts on if fight fans will ever see Conor McGregor in a UFC bout again.

A lot of chatter has been going on in regards to McGregor’s fighting future. The former two-division UFC champion is currently featured on season 31 of “The Ultimate Fighter” as a coach. The UFC’s plan was to book McGregor against opposing TUF coach Michael Chandler by the end of the year. As plans will be, plans will go awry.

Fight fans shouldn’t expect McGregor vs. Chandler to take place in 2023. McGregor did not meet the deadline to re-enter the USADA testing pool in order to compete this year. A Conor McGregor UFC return won’t be happening until at least 2024, but some are convinced that the “Notorious” one is done fighting altogether.

Sean O’Malley Talks Conor McGregor Return

In a new video posted on his YouTube channel, Sean O’Malley was asked if he believes McGregor will eventually find his way back inside the Octagon for his first fight since 2021. O’Malley kept his answer short and sweet.

“Yes,” O’Malley said. “Yeah, Conor’s gonna fight, f*** yeah. Take them bumps, get in there. F*** yeah.”

McGregor’s Injury Recovery

McGregor was last seen fighting under the UFC banner back in July 2021. He took on Dustin Poirier in a trilogy fight. Things didn’t end well at all for “Mystic Mac.” In the first round, McGregor fractured his tibia and fibula. Poirier won the fight via TKO due to doctor’s stoppage, and McGregor had to undergo surgery.

Even if McGregor were to come back, many are questioning not only his motivation, but also how he’ll look coming off the serious injury. Time will tell what’s truly in store for McGregor, who has told fans and reporters that he will “never retire.”
