Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round of his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier back in 2021. That incident changed his whole life in many ways, especially when it comes to how people perceive him. That being said, it seems McGregor could be getting a title shot if he wins his comeback fight.
The Irishman has been working very hard on his road to recovery since 2021. He has always kept fans updated on his progress, and they couldn’t be happier for McGregor.
Conor McGregor previously revealed that he will not be making his return to the UFC as a lightweight. That being said, it’s likely he is returning this year.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Michael Bisping stated that he believes McGregor could be getting a title shot if he wins his comeback fight.
Listen buddy, you like it or not, Conor’s still the biggest star in the sport. And with one win, you can bet your bottom dollar that he is gonna fight for the title. Of course he is. And the reality is, if you own the organization and you had a guy like Conor that could bring in millions of pay-per-view buys, you’d probably do the same thing. I don’t agree with it but that’s just the way the world works.”
Conor McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh is also confident that McGregor will make his return to the Octagon this year. Conor McGregor is also busy filming a movie in the meantime. We will have to wait and see who McGregor will face next once he makes his UFC return.
