Conor McGregor suffered a freak leg injury in his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. Since then, the 'Notorious' one has been eyeing to make a great UFC come back. That said, here are five potential opponents for McGregor's UFC comeback.
McGregor wasted no time and immediately called out for a fourth fight against Dustin Poirier in his octagon interview at UFC 264. Poirier vs. McGregor 4 might just come to fruition considering the anti-climactic conclusion of their trilogy.
Both McGregor and Nate Diaz have often said they are open for a third fight. Furthermore, a trilogy will put their rivalry to rest as the pair are 1-1 against each other.
Tony Ferguson might be on a 3-fight losing streak, but he still is a top-ranked UFC lightweight contender. Furthermore, McGregor vs. Ferguson will be a highly entertaining bout for the fans.
A win against a top-ranked contender like Michael Chandler, who currently sits at the fifth position in the UFC lightweight rankings, is exactly what McGregor needs to put himself back on the map for a title shot.
It's no secret that Jorge Masvidal and McGregor have bad blood between them. Thus, a fight between the pair will be one of the most exciting bouts in UFC. Furthermore, it won't be the first time McGregor would fight a welterweight.
