Conor McGregor Vows He'll Actually Fight In UFC Again

John Kavanagh and Conor McGregor

Frankie Edgar's manager Ali Abdelaziz has insisted Conor McGregor never offered to face his fighter at UFC 222.

McGregor recently claimed on Instagram that he offered to save the PPV following Holloway's withdrawal.

The Irishman hasn't fought inside the Octagon since November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC Lightweight Champion.

But the Dublin native suggests he is ready to return: "Taking out the final featherweight, without all of the rest of the stuff that comes with this game".

Although UFC president Dana White hasn't made any official announcement, it's expected McGregor will be stripped of his lightweight title and the victor of Ferguson-Nurmagomedov will be dubbed undisputed champ. On Wednesday (Thursday AEDT), White confirmed that McGregor will be stripped of his belt.

Although, money issues on the UFC's part seemingly ended any hope of a quick return to the Octagon for McGregor.

Talking about a possible McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. rematch, he said that it would only make sense in the UFC. And then, of course, the highly-divisive super-fight between himself and Floyd Mayweather came to be and all of a sudden, several very real question-marks loomed over his future in the sport. Because I am here.

Private companies can mine, sell coal
The decision was taken by the the Cabinet Co-mmittee on Economic Affairs ( CCEA ) under the chairmanship of PM Narendra Modi . West Bengal, Odisha, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh are the major coal bearing sates.

His post had more than a million likes in three hours.

However, according to Conor McGregor, the event could've had a far more high profile main event.

Holloway disposed of Aldo with a third round TKO to retain his title, his first successful defence. McGregor and Diaz are 1-1 in their previous two bouts. He found McGregor's timing "funny" because, as he sees it, "the Notorious" has done everything in his power not to fight the Tom's River native up until now. That was his tenth straight victory in the division.

Attempting to save a UFC card on short notice isn't anything new for McGregor who, in part, built his name on a willingness to fight anyone on short notice regardless of weight.

He'll be back, but he'll be back without his titles. It's just the injury-laden year-long gaps between fights that have been the question mark.

The confusion here involves McGregor, the UFC's official lightweight king.

"Is he upset? No, Conor understands", White said. Georges St-Pierre became the fourth fighter to achieve the milestone when he won the middleweight strap off Michael Bisping past year, while McGregor, BJ Penn and Randy Couture are the other two-weight champions.
