The Frustration Grows
Conor McGregor is growing impatient as his long-awaited comeback fight continues to be delayed. The Irishman recently dropped a five-word x-rated plea to UFC president Dana White, expressing his frustration and demanding a date for his return to the octagon.
UFC 300 in Question
McGregor's comeback fight against Michael Chandler was rumored to take place at UFC 300. However, the promotion decided not to have him headline their final card of 2023, leaving fans wondering when and where the highly-anticipated clash will occur.
The Notorious, 35, took to Instagram to vent his frustration, sharing a video of himself and Chandler and writing, "Get this f***ing date set." McGregor has been eager to make his return and recently claimed that the fight would happen on June 29, but a final date has yet to be confirmed.
MMA fans worldwide are perplexed by the UFC's choice not to have McGregor headline the historic UFC 300 card. Veteran commentator Joe Rogan revealed that the promotion did try to secure McGregor as the main event, but he won't be ready by then.
Weight Class Confusion
McGregor's claim that he and Chandler will collide at middleweight has raised eyebrows. Commenting on this, Rogan said, "That 85 is crazy, that's crazy. That's also, if you don't want to cut weight, that is the kind of way to do it."
The Long Road to Return
McGregor hasn't fought since breaking his left leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier in July 2021. After a lengthy and intense rehab, including a dramatic body transformation, McGregor is eager to get back in the octagon. He made an emotional plea to White and the UFC last October, expressing his frustration and longing for a return to his way of living.
As fans eagerly await McGregor's return, the question remains: When and where will the highly-anticipated comeback fight finally take place? Keep an eye out for updates as the drama unfolds.
