McGregor Teases UFC Return, Eyes Unfinished Business with Poirier

Speculation Grows Around McGregor's Comeback and Rivalries in the Octagon

Conor McGregor, the former two-division UFC champion, has stirred excitement with hints of a potential return to the octagon in 2024. While his coach John Kavanagh casts doubt on a comeback before summer, McGregor’s recent re-entry into drug testing has sparked rumors of an appearance at UFC 300, anticipated in April.

McGregor’s last fight ended in defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021, marked by a leg injury. Eligible to compete by April 8, 2024, following USADA testing guidelines, McGregor’s potential opponents include Michael Chandler, who has been on hold throughout 2023, and Poirier, with whom McGregor shares a heated and unresolved rivalry.

Amidst speculation, McGregor remains noncommittal on his opponent choice but acknowledges Chandler as “a good guy.” However, his enthusiasm spikes when discussing Poirier, against whom he holds a score of one win and two losses. McGregor labels their rivalry as “unfinished,” fueling anticipation for a high-stakes comeback showdown.

With McGregor’s return still uncertain but highly anticipated, fans eagerly await official announcements, as the fighter himself remains confident about stepping back into the limelight and settling past scores.
