One Condition Has To Be Met If Conor McGregor Is To Fight In UFC Again

Conor McGregor has been hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons as of late. There has been widespread rumours that he was involved in a brawl in Crumlin but those rumours have since been denied by the UFC champion.

The head boss at the UFC, Dana White, suggested earlier this week that McGregor might never fight again and it looks as though if the Dublin man is to enter the octagon again, it'll be on his own terms. 

According to MMAjunkie, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley would like to fight in March which is around the same time that UFC lightweight champion, McGregor, would like to return. 

The only problem is, the event is not big enough for the both of them and Woodley said that the 'Notorious' has one demand that might keep him off the card.

“From what I hear, if he’s on the card, he doesn’t want any pay-per-view grossing fighters on the card with him. Because he doesn’t want to feed us any more, which I can respect. The dude is the draw. You can hate all you want, but he’s the draw. He’s that dude right now.”

Although McGregor's return is not set in stone yet, he is expected to face interim titleholder Tony Ferguson in a title-unifying bout but first of all, McGregor has to work out a new contract within the UFC. 

Hopefully we see him back in action before too long.
