Conor McGregor’s UFC Return: have talks failed?
Conor ‘The Notorious’ McGregor was reportedly in talks with UFC Chief Dana White for a return. Ever since UFC 229, McGregor had announced retirement but has since been sending feelers to the company about a potential return.
However, talks now seem to have fallen through as McGregor is demanding a much higher payday than what the company is willing to offer him. To add to this, he recently injured his hand, which is likely to impact his movement in the Octagon as well greatly.
