UFC president and CEO Dana White responded to a question about former double champion Conor McGregor's return to the octagon after failing to enter the USADA testing pool by the deadline.
Dana White said in an interview to Piers Morgan:
He’s (Conor McGregor) back in the gym, he’s training. I expect to see Conor fighting next year.
McGregor last fought against Dustin Poirier in July 2021 at UFC 264. In that confrontation, Conor was defeated by technical knockout after suffering a leg fracture. He has 22 wins and six losses on his record.
