The last time McGregor competed was against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246 in January of this year. That event showcased McGregor’s much-anticipated return to the sport after over a year outside of the cage. The Irishman returned in spectacular form, finishing “Cowboy” in just 44 seconds. Since then McGregor has been linked to several potential match ups, including one against Justin Gaethje.
