Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje is most likely going to be McGregor’s first fight upon his return to UFC. Coming off after an exciting first-round win against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, Gaethje is on quite a winning momentum but it will be interesting to see what will happen when he finally meets the legendary Conor McGregor!
Let us take a closer look at this fight and see whether this is confirmed and when will it happen!

McGregor vs Gaethje Confirmed?
No, as of this writing, the fight between Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje has not been confirmed officially. In fact, other names are also being associated with McGregor’s return. Some people believe that Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier is going to be the key fight when he’s back. There are others who also believe that we might even get Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz III at some point in time soon.
However, for now, it seems it is going to be one of Gaethje or Poirier – but given McGregor has already fought (and defeated) the latter once, Gaethje might end up being his first opponent back!
When Will Conor McGregor Return to UFC?
Only Conor McGregor knows as to when he plans to return back to action! However, this is not going to be at UFC 245. The event already features three title matches and has all the star power it needs to draw people towards their TV screens! Hence, we don’t expect Conor McGregor to return anytime before January 2020 at UFC 246 (or maybe even later!)
