If not a title fight, which it most likely will not be, the winner of this match would definitely be first in line for the belt. With the future of Khabib Nurmagomedov uncertain with UFC, a lot is on the line at this event.

This is also a rematch of their 2014 fight where both of them competed as featherweights. Conor McGregor ran out as the winner by TKO, but he knows things are different now.

With so much at stake, McGregor is training hard to make a smashing return to the big stage.

He has just 2 UFC fights to his name in the past 3 years. His last bout came in January 2020, and he announced his retirement in June that year.

Hence it is in no doubt that he would be giving it his all to make sure he is not rusty on the big occasion. By the looks of it, he’s doing pretty well.

The Irishman looks ripped, fit, and ready to unleash in the photograph that he posted on his Twitter account. Fans, understandably, went ballistic.
