Based on Conor McGregor’s recent interview, it seems like he really misses fighting and just like his fans, he is eagerly waiting to make a return.
Conor McGregor on when he will fight next
In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Conor McGregor revealed when he would make a return and expressed his willingness to fight again.
“April,” McGregor said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “They’re saying April now. I’m happy with April. I would’ve loved earlier, but I have to be — if I’m to be honest and realistic, and for my fans, I want to put in a good run, build myself back, and that’s it.
McGregor further said: "It’s looking like April, mixed martial arts.I’ve been kept from my living for almost three years now, Understand that. I came through what I came through. I’m sitting on an injury and a loss.
Imagine what that [does]. You hear what Alexander Volkanovski said — I relate. I must return to my way of living. This is my job. So it’s beyond frustrating and hopefully we can back [in April]. I just want the date, my date, please.
That’s it”. McGregor was in attendance for the mega crossover event; after watching Francis Ngannou vs Tyson Fury live, his opinion matched with the opinions of others – McGregor thought Francis Ngannou clearly won the fight against Tyson Fury.
Boxing crossover famously started with McGregor and Floyd Mayweather. Conor is open to participating in such events; perhaps after fighting Michael Chandler in his highly anticipated UFC return, McGregor may fight someone from the boxing world.
