Dana White Talks Return Of Conor McGregor

One question that seems to be a constant among MMA fans lately, is when will Conor McGregor get back to fighting. According to UFC President Dana White, it may not be too far off.

McGregor last fought in November of 2018, losing in a title fight to Khabib Nurmagomedov. Since then he has kept himself in the headlines, though not for fighting (at least not in a cage). These countless headlines and antics have put fans in a position where they just want to see the Irishman fight in the Octagon again.

In a recent Twitter Q & A, Dana White was asked about that very situation. Like in just about every interview, White was questioned about when Conor McGregor would be returning.

“I’m sure you saw his tweet. Conor wants to fight Dec. 14 in Dublin, but we have a fight in Vegas. So if he doesn’t fight on that card, he’ll fight early next year”

The tweet that Dana White is referring to, certainly perked up some ears, with McGregor saying he would like to fight on December 14th in Ireland. However, it has since come out that he was likely looking for a boxing match with Luke Keeler. Although the chances of this is pretty unlikely to happen. Subsequently other bouts, like a potential Justin Gaethje fight, have been discussed as well.

With that being said, do you think that Conor McGregor will fight at the end of the year? Or are we more likely to see him fighting at the beginning of next year?
