Conor McGregor confirms UFC return with "come and get me" social media post

Conor McGregor confirms UFC return with "come and get me" social media post

CONOR MCGREGOR has announced his return to the octagon with a social media post calling on all competitors.

McGregor hasn't fought in the UFC since November 2016 when he beat Eddie Alvarez to claim the lightweight title at Madison Square Garden, although McGregor did make his professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in August 2017 in the meantime.


There has been speculation as to when McGregor might fight again in the UFC, and in an Instagram post tonight, he confirmed the news his fans have been waiting for.

He wrote:

I am fighting again. Period. 
I am the best at this. 
I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn't enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need.
I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in. 
On top of the fighting. 
I am here. 
It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here. 
Yours sincerely, 
The Champ Champ™

Mc Gregor could be lined up to face the winner of the Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov bout, which takes place on April 7.
