Conor McGregor’s coach sets potential UFC 2022 return date

Posted by

Conor McGregor’s coach has revealed when he expects to see the UFC superstar back in the octagon.

McGregor has not fought in the UFC since suffering a rather nasty leg break in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier. With the Irishman having been defeated via a doctor stoppage, it was his third loss in four fights.

Still, McGregor is one of the biggest names in MMA, one of the biggest PPV draws that Dana White has on his books and has one of the largest followings of any fighter in any combat sport.

Needless to say, there are many who are eager to hear when they will be back in action.

Well, through long-time coach John Kavanagh, we have been given a loose timeframe. Kavanagh is quoted by The Sun saying:

“I would say early summer.”

“I think he’s on target for that. I’ll be meeting him, he’s back in Dublin now, so I’ll see him when I go back home to Ireland.”

“I’m sure we’ll have a Proper 12 to celebrate Christmas, and then set a time for making a comeback.”

That ought to be sufficient time for McGregor’s leg to fully heal, as well as giving him an opportunity to spar and get back to full fitness. He should not be cutting any corners and coming back prematurely.

Now we have a rough idea of the time that he’ll be coming back, all that’s left to determine is the opponent. Who would YOU like to see Conor face off against upon his return to the UFC?
