UFC news – Conor McGregor teases return date

Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor has hinted he’ll return to the Octagon in the summer.

McGregor made his long-awaited return to the cage in Janauary, decimated Donald Cerrone in 40 in the main event of UFC 249.

And the Irishman has hinted his next outing will be in just under nine weeks’ time, tweeting: “See you in July.”

McGregor’s apparent return hint came after he vowed to butcher newly-crowned interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje.

“It’s me and Justin next as Khabib is the biggest bottle fighter in the game,” McGregor tweeted on Monday. “Guarantee it.”

He added: “Justin, there is no danger in a man that hugs legs, we all know.

“Try and dance around what the real threat is here all you want. I am going to f*****g butcher you. Your teeth. I’m going to put them on a f****** necklace. Speak on my skills as a father? You are f*****g dead.”
