The career of Conor McGregor has been quite interesting in the months following his mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather, which took place back in August 2017.

The Irishman decided to ditch UFC in favour of boxing to meet the 'Money Man', eventually going on to lose in Las Vegas in the tenth round.

Both McGregor and Mayweather made an enormous sum of money from the bout, with many questioning whether the former will actually ever fight again.

There were talks of a rematch between the pair in the Octagon, but that's all ended now after McGregor took to Instagram to state that negotiations between the pair had fallen through.

Yesterday, the Notorious took to the social media platform again to explain that he is looking to fight once again.


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."


It looks like UFC fans are going to get their wish and on Friday afternoon, boxer Tony Bellew tweeted a simple yet effective four-word message to McGregor about his post.

Think nearly everyone will agree with the Bomber.


It's true, the sport does need him to return.

There are a number of excellent fighters in UFC, but no one can deny that McGregor is the face of the organisation.

Dana White must be thrilled that he appears set on making a return to the Octagon and not opting for a career in boxing.
