Conor McGregor’s New Tweet Leaves MMA World Buzzing About His Return
The last time when Conor McGregor left the octagon, things didn’t look very good for the Irish man as he suffered a broken ankle in the trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier.
But it seems like McGregor has recovered from that blow and is well set for his return in early 2022.
On Thursday night, McGregor took to Twitter and shared a few words regarding his possible comeback in 2022.
As usual, McGregor hasn’t clearly mentioned when it will be and whether it will be a return to MMA or the Irish man is going to try his luck in the boxing ring one more time.
All this has created a debating point among the MMA community with speculations going around about his possible next opponent as well.
“The UFC goat boxer with acrobatic kicks, 2022,” McGregor wrote.

Some of the fans have suggested him to fight either of Paul brothers, Jake or Logan. Jake is set to fight Tommy Fury on December 18.
Some have also argued that the interim bantamweight champion Petr Yan would also be an ideal fit for McGregor’s return to the boxing ring. Yan has demonstrated higher boxing expertise during his time in the UFC and has dominated most of his rivals on the feet.
Since dethroning Eddie Alvarez in 2016, McGregor hasn’t had a good time in the octagon, winning only once in his last four bouts.
During this time, McGregor also lost a cross-over boxing match to Floyd Mayweather — and not to forget his embarrassing loss against the then bitter foe, Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018.
Still, McGregor has been able to pile a good amount of money outside the cage with his personal business turning into highly lucrative silk stockings. Forbes listed McGregor among the world’s highest-earning athletes this past year.
All eyes are now set on McGregor’s possible comeback to the combat ring. Only time will tell whether it will be in the octagon or boxing ring.
