Conor McGregor, the renowned UFC fighter, recently took to social media to express his frustration over the possibility of his UFC return in December being delayed. McGregor had plans to fight Michael Chandler, Justin Gaethje, and Nate Diaz in the future, but his exclusion from the USADA’s testing pool has made it challenging for him to make a comeback later this year.

McGregor emphasized that MMA is his livelihood and expressed his desire to return in December.

Concerns arose when Weidman found himself in a wheelchair after the match, prompting UFC president Dana White to address the situation. During the post-fight press conference, White expressed his love for Weidman and his family and mentioned the damage Weidman sustained to his knee. White urged Weidman to consider retirement, stating that depending on the knee damage, another year of recovery may be necessary.
