McGregor printed on Recent Year’s Eve that he would return on June 29 for World Fight Week in opposition to Michael Chandler. Yet, nothing has been made legit and as we advise, UFC CEO Dana White has mentioned he isn’t even obvious the Irishman will wrestle this year at all.

However, for the premiere of Road Home, Conor McGregor says his wrestle in opposition to Michael Chandler is relieve on for this summer.

“We bought affirmation a pair of days ago that it’s all systems hump,” McGregor mentioned to ESPN. “And ‘The Mac’, ‘The Infamous’ will doubtless be returning to the UFC Octagon this summer.”

Correct as we advise, McGregor says he loses interest in practising when he doesn’t private one thing else booked but that isn’t very any longer the case. In its save, he says the wrestle with Chandler is on so he knows his practising has to be in paunchy power till he steps in the Octagon.

“I had [my training] camp in Dubai [months ago], I had a camp in Cannes,” McGregor mentioned. “I was as soon as getting ready, and then I was as soon as form of getting nothing relieve. And then other things came up and I form of dipped out. However now, it’s on. So, there’s no messing now. I’m in a position to no longer dip out now.”

Currently, the wrestle is accrued no longer legit, and when Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler will happen remains to be seen. However, when it does happen, the Irishman is gay to hurt Chandler, in particular after his comments on WWE’s Monday Evening Raw.

“Shut up, Michael, you f—ing imbecile,” McGregor mentioned. “The particular person doesn’t shut up. I seen him on ‘Raw.’ I fancy Mike — I’m going to bust him up. I’m going to bust Mike up, yeah? If I teach it, I attain it. … If I teach it, it will get carried out. Attach that on my stone.”

Conor McGregor has no longer fought since July of 2021 when he broke his appropriate in opposition to Dustin Poirier.
