Conor McGregor has not competed since losing to Dustin Poirier in July 2021. The Irish boxer is still recovering from the injury he suffered at UFC 264.
There have been many reports that Conor McGregor will return to the octagon this year and the most potential opponent is Michael Chandler. The match could take place next September.
Despite regularly making confident statements, Conor McGregor may have to retire if he continues to lose in his next comeback. That’s the warning shared by Matt Brown with the recent The Fighter vs The Writer podcast.
” I’m very unlikely to see Conor play again if he comes back and loses, especially a defeat as heavy as the recent octaves.”
“He doesn’t have any more reason to fight anymore,” Matt Brown added. “He came back because he was hungry to show himself and he wanted to be a champion again. I can’t imagine how motivated he would be to fight if he came back and was knocked out by Michael Chandler.”
Conor McGregor has only had one win since returning to the octagon in 2018 to date against Donald Cerrone. In the last 2 matches in 2021 against Dustin Poirier, The Notorious were knocked out early. Therefore, most experts and fans do not appreciate the opportunity to compete for the title of the former UFC 2-weight champion in the upcoming comeback.
