UFC superstar Conor McGregor has suggested that his long-awaited return to the octagon may not be far away.
McGregor has not been active in the UFC since he suffered a NASTY leg break in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier.
He and his team have had to ensure the leg is absolutely healed in order to throw and receive leg kicks during fights.
That has ruled the Irishman out of action for much longer than he would’ve hoped, but he could now be on the precipice of returning.
While there has yet been no formal return date set for McGregor, quoted by The Sun, he suggested that it’s now not far away.
“I’m buzzing cuz I want to come back.
“Good fights like that, good fight nights like that, good cards like that, good pay-per-views inspire millions around the world.
“Thank you all so much for the entertainment and I’ll see you real soon.”
We’d love to see McGregor return to the UFC before the end of the year, but with the timeline having been delayed, we’re not sure it’s realistic.
Let’s wait and see…
