Former featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor hinted he will make a comeback to Ultimate Fighting Championship(UFC) this year following the bus incident at the UFC 223 media day.
Dana White is in good terms now
Since McGregor’s misconduct after UFC 223 media in Brooklyn, New York, he was charged with three counts of assault, one count of criminal mischief and reckless endangerment. Thanks to UFC President Dana White and McGregor’s attorney, Jim Walden, the case was settled with an agreement that he would take part in five days of community service.
Here’s what happened from the bus incident
Followed by a feud between UFC lightweight championship Khabib Nurmagomedov and Artem Lobov that saw Nurmagomedov corner Lobov, the matter went on to McGregor too, since he has his own history of trash talks with Nurmagomedov, whilst he’s a good pal to Lobov.
The scene happened in Brooklyn when McGregor made an appearance during a UFC 223 promotional event and spotted Nurmagomedov in a moving bus. He instantly threw a metal dolly to the bus, which injured two UFC fighters.
Recently McGregor was stripped of the lightweight championship
Four months ago, ‘The Notorious’ was stripped of the lightweight title due to inactivity. The last UFC fight he fought was in UFC 205, versus Eddie Alvarez, winning in the second round. In his UFC career of 24 matches, he’s got a stupendous record of 21 wins and just three losses. The last time he lost was in UFC 196, to Nate Diaz, in the second round too.
Comeback match is likely to happen this October
Nothing’s official but today, the Irishman posted an image on his Twitter and Instagram and its caption reads “Honey I’m Home”. In another post a couple of days ago, he captioned it as “Click clack I’m back.” Brit media outlet The Metro claims his comeback match will be on October 6th for UFC 229, against Khabin Nurmagomedov at Las Vegas.
