Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov is a rematch that the entire world wants, but they might just not get it so easily. Both the men share an intensely personal rivalry, and Khabib is in no mood to give Conor what he wants so easily.
While Khabib vs Poirier is all set to take place at UFC 242, McGregor might want to steal some of that limelight off Khabib and make his return at UFC 241.
Let us take a closer look at what are the chances of McGregor making his comeback at the next UFC PPV.
McGregor using Khabib to try and be relevant again… Hope he gets his rematch so we can watch him tap out.

UFC 241: Will Conor McGregor Return?
Rumors, speculations, and confirmations regarding the return of Conor McGregor have been making rounds on the internet for quite a long time now. Even UFC President Dana White has confirmed that the Irishman will be back in the octagon soon. How soon, however, is up for guesses.
As per many, McGregor will make his much-awaited return at UFC 241, which will ensure that all the conversations heading out of the event are about him and not about the upcoming Khabib vs Poirier fight at UFC 242. He will also issue a challenge to Khabib even before he fights Poirier.
Wow McGregor is really begging Khabib for a rematch. He's desperate. He starting to becoming meme if himself.
