McGregor, a former undisputed lightweight and featherweight champion under the banner of the promotion, has yet to feature inside the Octagon since he fractured his left tibia and fibula in a first round doctor’s stoppage TKO loss to Dustin Poirier back in 2021.

However, as far as promotional CEO, Dana White is concerned, McGregor is not in line to fight on the card – revealing a comeback for the Dubliner is more likely to take place towards the fall of this year.
