Conor McGregor gives major update on next UFC fight as he reveals he will be back ‘in the Octagon again soon’ – The Sun

CONOR McGREGOR has given exciting news to fight fans as he says he will be back in the Octagon 'soon'.

The Notorious returned to the UFC for his first fight in over a year when he destroyed Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone in just 40 seconds in January.

But fight fans have been waiting for his return to action with no opponent or scheduled fight announced yet by the UFC.

But the Dubliner, 31, is adamant that they will not have to wait long to see him in action again while also admitting he is open to a return to the boxing world.

He famously crossed codes in 2017 when he lost to legendary undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather by a tenth round TKO.

McGregor told Bleacher Report: "What the fans, and frankly the fighters, don’t want is a dull fight or a dull lead up to a fight.

'GOOD SCRAP'

"I enjoy every aspect, and the fans deserve to see and hear the real me.

"I am very passionate and eager to please the fans and win for them and my family.

"I am willing to fight anyone and have proved that time and time again.

"I look for a good scrap, and if it isn't going to be that, I have no interest.

"The money is not why I do this. I am a very rich man, and my children and those that come after them will be just fine.

"I love the fight game. I learned many things boxing in Crumlin where I grew up, and my deep love is why I do this today.

"I will be in the Octagon again soon and fully expect to box again.

"You will need to stay tuned, but trust me – the fans will enjoy. Giving them what they want and entertaining them is important to me."

McGregor has teased a return to the boxing ring before and has made no secret of his desire to have another shot at Mayweather.

And the former two weight UFC champ even believes he could beat the undefeated boxer if they came face to face again.

While talk of a showdown with Manny Pacquiao was also rife after the Filipino star signed with McGregor's management company.
