This is the first time McGregor has competed in any kind of boxing contest since losing to Floyd Mayweather in August of 2017. “The Notorious” has been training at Crumlin Boxing Club in Dublin for the last few days and his supporters have come out in droves.
UFC President Dana White is rumored to be meeting McGregor next week in Miami, Florida, to discuss his future inside the Octagon. He is strongly angling for a rematch with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov; however, it looks as though that ship has sailed.
While McGregor’s Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) suspension ran its course on April 6, it’s likely he will clear up some of his legal issues before he makes his official return.
