Conor McGregor has been out of the competition with a foot injury which he suffered in the Dustin Poirier Trilogy. Since then, the Irishman has focused on recovering and returning to the octagon.

Recently in an Instagram post, McGregor addressed his fight fans with a message that he will take a break from drinking his Proper 12 Irish Whiskey and dedicate himself to the comeback. Though, the Irishman said it’s difficult to stay away from his brand because of its incredible appeal.

McGregor posted, “For my fighting fans, I want to say I know I am enjoying myself with my liquid, but very soon I will be immersing my self in full training again with complete abstention from my wonderful creations of Spirit and Ale.”

Conor McGregor and Tony Ferguson have a lot of history with each other. When McGregor was pursuing his boxing goals, Ferguson was the one grinding himself in the division and taking on all comers in the lightweight division. Eventually, when McGregor came back, Ferguson was dealing with knee injuries and was out of competition.

At UFC 249, when Khabib went back to Russia because of emerging covid concern, McGregor had the opportunity to take a replacement fight against Tony Ferguson, but McGregor declined the fight and Gaethje fought and ended the historic lightweight win streak of Ferguson.

Ferguson has called out McGregor frequently on social media and his post-fight octagon interviews.

UFC did not discuss this fight and is looking to book Ferguson against Michael Chandler. Though a fight with McGregor would be a dream fight for many fans, also with both fighters coming off of multiple losses and having big names, should this fight be booked, it would break PPV records. What do you think of this match and who should McGregor fight for his comeback fight?
