MMA icon Conor McGregor has been making his name in the entertainment world as well. He is currently gearing up for his big screen debut in the forthcoming movie ‘Road House’.

Since suffering a leg injury at UFC 264 in July 2021, McGregor has not entered the cage for over three years. He has now been heavily promoting his upcoming movie with co-star Jake Gyllenhaal.

In a recent interview with BuzzFeed Celeb, McGregor and Gyllenhaal engaged in a friendly arm wrestling match. The presence of adorable puppies during the interaction further attracted the duo to viewers, sparking a flurry of reactions on social media platforms.

After almost three years away, Conor McGregor is getting closer to making his much awaited comeback to the octagon. While speculation over McGregor’s probable opponent and the time of his return has been rampant, he just gave an update in an interview with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi.

Confirming his intention to return to the UFC octagon this summer, McGregor disclosed that negotiations had progressed. Additionally, his opponent confirmed to be Michael Chandler.

McGregor said: “We got confirmation a few days ago that it’s all systems go and ‘The Mac’, ‘The Notorious’ will be returning in the UFC octagon this summer… It’s Chandler. I’ve got to f *king shut up Michael, the f *king imbecile, the blade doesn ‘t shut up… I like Michael. I’m going to bust him up… I was having a bit of a laugh with the 185 [pounds]. I haven ‘t checked the scales since the last time I weighed in at a UFC event, which was a fair bit of time ago.”

With both Chandler and McGregor known for their charismatic personas, the matchup promises to be a spectacle for fans worldwide.
