Conor McGregor Says He'll be Returning to MMA Competition

Questions surrounding when, and what sport, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor would return to have been running rampant for the last several months. McGregor didn't outright say no, but the Irish phenom did say "I think a true right is what I want to do next". He was asked if he will box again and said, "We'll see what happens". And what about the WWE?

McGregor also bluntly ruled out switching to wrestling.

This is good news for UFC fans, although it's a bit unclear who McGregor will take on in his return fight.

There was speculation the UFC star would face Filipino boxing legend Pacquiao after the 39-year-old recently confirmed reports the Irishman and him were thrashing out plans to square off in 2018. A real fight. What's a real fight?

After it was confirmed none of the three was Manning or had any weapons, police said they released Hodges and the two adults. "I used to want to be a Grand Rapids police officer, but ever since that happened, I want nothing to do with them".

"F-- the WWE", McGregor said. "Remember, I'm Floyd "Money" Mayweather, and you motherf****** love me, and I love you motherf******".

Mayweather and McGregor's PPV total was nearly double the third biggest fight of all time, which again featured the 40-year-old American. After his triangle-choke submission of Kevin Lee at UFC 216 in October, Ferguson issued a highly-profane challenge to McGregor, calling him a "piece of [expletive]", saying he was going to "kick your [expletive]" and telling McGregor to "defend or vacate". He has not fought in the Octagon since November 2016, and he has never defended a UFC championship.
