Conor McGregor’s potential comeback to MMA remains unconfirmed, but a recent hint from the Irish fighter suggests a possible appearance at UFC 300.
The highly anticipated anniversary event is scheduled for April 13, and Dana White, the CEO of the organization, has indicated that there are still two fight announcements pending for the card.
‘The Notorious’ has been absent from competition since July 2021, when he suffered a leg injury during his bout against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. Despite completing season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter alongside Michael Chandler last year.
A matchup between the two fighters following the season finale on August 15 has not been officially announced. White recently stated that McGregor’s return is unlikely until at least the latter part of 2024.
However, McGregor fueled speculation about his return by sharing a video on Instagram on February 10, featuring White announcing his appearance at a press conference ahead of his fight with Floyd Mayweather.
This move has sparked rumors that White may reveal McGregor’s comeback at UFC 300 during the Super Bowl, which is set to take place on Monday.
