Conor McGregor’s highly anticipated return to the UFC is still uncertain, but recent developments suggest that he is seeking assistance from a retired official. The Irishman, who has been eyeing a December comeback, expressed his frustration on Twitter after Dana White crushed his hopes.
In an audio note shared on social media, McGregor revealed that he believed his return at UFC 296 was confirmed, only to be disappointed. He then addressed Bob Bennett, a retired Nevada State Athletic Commission official, and requested his help for his UFC comeback.
It is worth noting that McGregor’s USADA status is a major factor in his return. As of now, he has not submitted a sample to USADA, which has raised concerns about his eligibility to compete.
McGregor’s request to Bennett is not without precedent. The retired official previously assisted the Irishman in obtaining a boxing license, showcasing their prior working relationship.
While McGregor’s December return remains uncertain, his determination to make a comeback is evident. Fans eagerly await updates on his USADA status and any potential developments regarding his return.
