Conor McGregor is coming back and his return is the talk of the town! Among the biggest names in UFC, McGregor has been away since his loss against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 and the controversial aftermath of the main event. Now that Khabib is back and has defeated Poirier to reclaim his UFC World Lightweight Championship, McGregor too, is eyeing a comeback.
Let us take a closet look at when The Irishman might be back – based on different sources, we estimate him to be back at the first UFC PPV of 2020: UFC 246.
I’m calling it now, Mcgregor/Poirier in December

Conor McGregor’s UFC Return: When Will He Be Back?
As of now there is no definite and official date as to when he plans to return, but we know that he has been teasing a return for quite some time now. Dana White had commented that McGregor’s UFC return will take place later this year – and McGregor too had made a cryptic tweet saying “Dublin, December 14”. Could this mean he is making a return at UFC 245?
No! This is just a ruse as McGregor likes to tease people. Based on the latest information, the Irishman isn’t expected to be back anytime before January 2020. This is mostly because he has a major TV appearance in Japan where he would be competing in physical strength against former boxing rival Floyd ‘The Money’ Mayweather.
@TheNotoriousMMA on your return to @ufc please fight in a stadium with a capacity of more than 100,000. You have highest payperview record,biggest gate and many more but this time make your return as the biggest attended event in all forms of sport.Thank you.See u in octagon👑
