UFC President Dana White went on The Jim Rome Show this week and talked about a variety of fighting topics. One of the more notable topics however was Conor McGregor and the fact he is “chomping at the bit” to get back in the octagon.

“He’s chomping at the bit to get back in there and compete again,” White said on “The Jim Rome Podcast.” “It’s going to be a while before he can put some torque on that leg. April. For him to start training again in April is probably about right.”

He has stated he’ll be cleared to spar in April, so a summer-late summer return for the most popular fighter on the planet seems likely. He’s mentioned a multitude of names recently including Nate Diaz, Kamaru Usman, Michael Chandler and the winner of the Dustin Poirier and Charles Oliveira Lightweight title fight.

“I don’t know (how badly he wants it),” White said. “He obviously still has the desire to compete. You don’t ever hear Conor going, ‘You know what, man? I just don’t have the desire for this anymore.’ You now what I mean? He’s obviously very rich, and he’s training like Rocky in ‘Rocky III,’ but he still has the desire to compete and the desire to fight, and we’ll see what happens.” (Transcribed by MMA Junkie)
