While it was suspected that McGregor would make his much-awaited comeback in December 2019, it appears that this plan has been put on hold for a while.

Hence, we expect his return to now take place in January 2020, but that’s also given the condition that the match between Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov does not take place then! If that happens, we expect a delay of another month.
