Conor McGregor has backed himself to execute the most memorable comeback in sporting history.
McGregor has not seen the inside of an octagon since he was beaten in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier. We say beaten, his leg snapped in half.
The Irishman has, obviously, had to spend a significant period of time away from combat sports in order to let his leg heal and get back into fighting shape.
The feeling is that McGregor is now nearing a return to the UFC, but we have been offered no insight as to when he could be fighting once again.
McGregor is clearly feeling confident ahead of his eventual return, though, having posted the below on Twitter – he’s intent on outdoing Tiger Woods…
The greatest and the biggest sports comeback in all of history.

Though McGregor is considered to have peaked in MMA and it would be a surprise to see him return to the top, only a fool would write him off completely.
McGregor has made a career out of proving people wrong – we wouldn’t be surprised if he was able to do it once again after returning to the UFC…
