Conor McGregor is, without the shadow of a doubt, one of the greatest fighters in UFC. His performance has been very impressive and many consider him to be the Greatest Of All Time! However, following his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, he was handed a ban because of post-match altercations. Now that he plans on a return, it will be interesting to see who he faces next.
Let us take a closer look at some men who might be McGregor’s next opponents!
Conor McGregor has as many title defenses as Khabib Nurmagomedov has losses. Wow.

Holloway, Gaethje, Poirier or Khabib – Who’s It Going to Be for Conor McGregor?
Max Holloway and Justin Gaethje are two names that are popping up when one talks about Conor McGregor’s UFC comeback. The former more than the latter – however even Gaethje’s Twitter war with McGregor is grabbing eyeballs now! While McGregor desperately wants a rematch with Khabib (or simply a title shot), he won’t get one till he piles up a few wins under his belt!
Holloway vs McGregor, Gaethje vs McGregor are both interesting concepts. However, there’s always the possibility of McGregor challenging Poirier and trying to beat him – showing the world he can also do what Khabib can do. McGregor has faced Holloway as well as Poirier in the past.
Khabib has lost one round in his entire MMA career. It was to @TheNotoriousMMA. If you don’t recognize that, you have no right speaking about MMA

When Will McGregor Return to UFC?
McGregor has said that he is ‘eager’ to make a comeback. Dana White has said that this might happen sometime towards the end of the year. However, that’s what we know about it so far. UFC 245 seems like about the right time that the Irishman makes a comeback – so he is ready for a big fight by the time UFC 250 comes around!
