Conor McGregor reveals big news about his fighting future

UFC fans are eagerly awaiting for Conor McGregor to announce who his next opponent will be, and the man himself provided an update on the situation this week during a charity event in New York on Wednesday night.

McGregor's last fight with the promotion was in November 2016 when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to capture the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 205. At the time, he was still the UFC Featherweight Champion too, so he became the only fighter to be champion in two UFC divisions simultaneously.

However, since then, a lot has happened to Notorious. He has been stripped of the Featherweight title due to inactivity in the division, and he has also boxed against Floyd Mayweather in a losing effort.

Due to interim UFC Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov being booked to go head-to-head at UFC 223 later this year in April, it has widely been reported that McGregor will also be stripped of the Lightweight title soon due to inactivity in the division. This is yet to be confirmed by UFC though.

At the charity event last night, McGregor did confirm he was still in talks with UFC about a possible return, but he is also leaving the door open to having a rematch with Mayweather.
