The biggest star in MMA, Conor McGregor could soon be a free agent.
‘Notorious’ took to social media on Saturday and invited his fans to as him whatever questions they want. During the Q&A session, McGregor revealed that he is reaching the end of his current UFC deal. While his plan is to remain a UFC fighter that could change if/when he fights out the contract.
“I have two fights left on my contract,” McGregor wrote in response to a fan who asked if he would ever start his own fight promotion. “I’d love to be with the UFC for life. I am the UFC! We shall see.”
Conor McGregor Hopes To Return To Action In The Summer Of 2022
For those who have been living under a rock, McGregor is currently out of action after fracturing his tibia and fibula at UFC 264. The Irishman was hoping to avenge his UFC 257 loss to Dustin Poirier but instead injured himself in the first round and the fight came to an inconclusive end.
McGregor has been documenting his recovery process on social media and appears to be making great strides in his bid to return to the Octagon. During the AMA session, the former dual-weight champion provided fans with a further update on his recovery.
“The fibula is fully healed,” McGregor wrote. “The medial side of the tibia is developing nice callous also. It is just patience now for it to form down through the bone to the lateral side of the tibia where the larger break occurred. It’s getting there. Patience will win this race for me!”
The 33-year-old expects to be back in full training by April and says fight news will soon follow.
“I will be full mixed martial arts sparring by April,” McGregor revealed. “Easily! By then a return will be imminent. But I must be patient. I will beat this!”
