Conor McGregor shockingly fractured his ankle at the end of the first round of his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier last year. Right after that, Conor McGregor became his most controversial self, drawing the ire of fans and peers alike. McGregor was once again mocked for his inability to win fights.
The Notorious One has been working hard on his road to recovery since last year. He has always updated fans on his progress and they couldn’t be happier for the Irishman.
Conor McGregor previously revealed that he will not be making his return to the UFC as a lightweight either. In fact, he is open to facing the likes of Charles Oliveira as well.
While speaking to The Schmo, UFC manager Ali Abdelaziz was asked for his thoughts on McGregor potentially fighting for the UFC lightweight title next. The manager mocked McGregor for being an Instagram fighter.
”Conor McGregor is, like I said to somebody else earlier today. He’s rehabbing his injury. But he’s rehabbing his drug habits. Nobody care about Conor McGregor. He have not won a fight since [Barack] Obama was a president. He’s popular because he’s a Twitter fighter now. He’s an Instagram fighter.
When the last time he fought and show us he like, worthy enough to fight for a UFC title? Listen to me. I understand the UFC business, but I know Dana White as back of my hand. Dana White will never give Conor McGregor a title fight coming off three losses. I know him. And if he did, I’ll be f***ing shocked.”
Conor McGregor is expected to make his UFC return in July this year. It remains to be seen who he will end up fighting against. Odds are, it will be someone McGregor has called out in the past.
