Conor McGregor Vows to Return to Octagon: "I Am Fighting Again. Period".

Dana White reveals Conor McGregor's reaction to being stripped of UFC lightweight title

After the win over Alvarez, McGregor turned his attention to his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather, which reportedly netted him over US$100 million (AU$125 million) in revenue. "Period. I am the best at this", McGregor wrote.

McGregor has been busy away from the UFC, with his boxing fight against Floyd Mayweather in August previous year and subsequent talk of a rematch.

Conor McGregor may not have an official date to end his 15-month absence from the Octagon, but the UFC lightweight champion appears to be getting close.

"Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in". McGregor hasn't stepped foot into the octagon since winning the lightweight title courtesy a TKO victory over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 on November 12, 2016.

President Dana White says "anything is possible" with regards to a high-profile, lucrative rematch to the "Money Fight" between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr in the UFC and is talking to influential advisor Al Haymon, though insists there are no negotiations active at present. He then unified the interim and undisputed titles by knocking out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds in December of 2015. He is demanding an ownership stake in the promotion, which has indicated it will strip him of the lightweight title in advance of a title fight between Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) at UFC 223 in April.

UFC 222, which takes place next weekend, descended into jeopardy when UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway was forced to withdraw from his scheduled title defence against Frankie Edgar due to an injury. I am here. It is on them to come and get me. "He's a liar. He should have fought Frankie two years ago". In a weird twist, White also refused to confirm whether McGregor was being stripped of his belt when Ferguson-Nurmagomedov was announced in January despite admitting it would be for the undisputed title.

"[McGregor's expected return] was August and now it's September". "He made a lot of money".
