I’m confident but I am gonna take it day by day and see how this leg goes up. One thing’s for sure, I will be able to box. I’ll be out here till mid-October anyway I think. Although I’ll know after this scan how long I’ll be here for,” McGregor added.

I’d love to be training with you sometime, Thank you for the support,” McGregor said further concluding his chat with Reynoso.

When will Conor McGregor return to action?

As McGregor mentioned, he is going under careful medical care. The Irish fighter would not be ready in any form before 2022. Also, how his recovery process goes will play a huge role in when he can finally return. However, one can expect him to jump among the very best in the world despite losing 2 in a row.

The possibilities are in abundance too for the former two-division champion. The likes of Dustin Poirier, Nate Diaz, and more can all be intriguing fights for ‘The Notorious‘ once he is back.
