  • Conor McGregor was the first double-weight UFC champion.
  • McGregor re-entered the USADA drug-testing pool on Oct. 8, 2023.
  • McGregor announced that he'll fight Michael Chandler on June 29, 2024.

Conor McGregor is currently on a two-fight skid after back-to-back losses to Dustin Poirier in their rematch and trilogy in January 2021 and July 2021. He’s unquestionably the promotion’s cash cow because and part of the biggest pay-per-view events in UFC history due to his entertaining personality and elite skills.

The former two-division UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion is always a top name in MMA odds and often a favorite in UFC betting.

But when will we see the Irish MMA superstar back in action? And who are the opponents linked to welcome him back in his highly-anticipated return inside the Octagon?

When Is Conor McGregor’s Next Fight?

Conor McGregor is now fully recovered from the broken left fibula and tibia injury he suffered in his last fight against Dustin Poirier in July 2021, which prompted a premature end to the fight due to a doctor’s stoppage. The “Notorious” also re-entered the USADA drug-testing pool in October 2023, which is required to be cleared to fight again inside the Octagon.

McGregor announced on New Year’s Eve that he’ll be fighting Michael Chandler on June 29, 2024, during the international fight week in Las Vegas. He added that their fight will be contested in the 185 pounds or the middleweight division. The Irish superstar has started training camp for his fight with Chandler.
