Conor McGregor’s last outing in the octagon was at UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier back in July 2021. During the fight, McGregor suffered a brutal broken left fibula and tibia and has been out of the octagon ever since.
While there has been no confirmation by either McGregor or UFC authorities on a fixed date for the Irishman’s return, it has been highly speculated that it is going to take place this year.
