While Conor McGregor has backed up his trash talks in the past, more often than not, they have also resulted in embarrassing defeats for him. McGregor also doesn’t hold any title in the UFC.
The Notorious One has been hard at work recovering from his injury over the past several months and has noticeably bulked up in anticipation of his return, though Dustin Poirier thinks he looks puffy. McGregor also never won a single fight in 2021.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Francis Ngannou talked about Conor McGregor making his return this year. Ngannou questioned whether McGregor has a strong enough desire to make a comeback.
“There is always a chance to establish ourself as long as you want it. The problem is, does he really want that? that’s all the problem, if you want that, I’m gonna get to the gym every day you know. The purpose of getting there again then yes it definitely would. When I watch his last fight against Poirier, that fight was pretty good because you see the confidence on Conor, which is like based of you can tell that confidence is out of the work that he put in you know? He tried several submission in certain positions, which was all about his confidence.”
Conor McGregor is already making a recovery in rapid fashion. It was also revealed when exactly Conor McGregor is expected to make his return to the UFC. We will have to wait and see what shape Conor McGregor will be in once he returns to the Octagon.
