Conor McGregor reckons he could make his long-awaited UFC return this year in a blockbuster bout against archrival newly crowned UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

McGregor, 30, pleaded guilty to charges stemming from his April attack on a bus filled with fighters ahead of UFC 223 in Brooklyn and must now take anger management classes as well as perform community service and he was also ordered to not go anywhere near three people affected by the attack, including UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa and onetime UFC flyweight title challenger Ray Borg.

When asked how far away his return was, McGregor, told TMZ: “Yes, very close. It’s not official but close — (in 2018) I believe.”

Last time Conor McGregor stepped inside the octagon was when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 at the Madison Square Garden, New York and won the UFC Lightweight title and also became the first fighter to hold two titles simultaneously.
