Conor McGregor

The ongoing saga of Conor McGregor’s long-awaited return to the Octagon knows no end.

The Irishman was originally supposed to return in 2023 at UFC 296 Madison Square Garden. When that didn’t happen, rumors ran rampant that he would headline the promotion’s next big landmark event on April 13. And while that still hasn’t been entirely ruled out, it’s looking less and less likely as we sit roughly eight weeks away from UFC 300.

On New Year’s Day, ‘Mystic Mac’ appeared to finally let the cat out of the bag, claiming he would return on June 29th during the promotion’s International Fight Week festivities in Las Vegas. However, UFC CEO Dana White has now ruled that out, recently stating McGregor’s quote-unquote “greatest comeback in combat sport’s history” would likely happen in the fall of 2024.

“Eventually,” White told The Pat McAfee Show when asked about McGregor vs. Chandler. “Hopefully this year. No date has been set. I’m hoping for the fall. [Hopefully] we get it done in the fall.”
