Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Essentially the most “Infamous” retired fighter on this planet could also be coming again but once more.
Conor McGregor could have introduced his retirement lower than two months in the past, however there’s a number of causes to consider McGregor’s newest trip from competitors is not going to final.

Nonetheless, there’s a darkish horse choice as effectively. UFC’s newest hotshot younger prospect, Khamzat Chimaev, is taking goal at McGregor. In reality, he’s known as out McGregor lower than an hour earlier than the “I settle for” tweet!
UFC and Dana White are fairly excessive on Chimaev, lately speculating favorably on his possibilities reverse Welterweight kingpin Kamaru Usman. The promotion undoubtedly believes in his expertise, however does that imply they’ll match him up with McGregor?
I extremely doubt it. There’s little to be gained, and “Borz” is the kind of model that might theoretically give McGregor hassle. Both means, keep tuned for any potential clarification on McGregor’s potential return.
