Conor McGregor has announced that he will not be returning this December at UFC 296.

Conor McGregor won’t be returning in 2023

The comeback of “The Notorious” has been highly anticipated for years, and in the wake of the former double champ being two years away from the Octagon, there was finally an announcement from McGregor that he would be making his return in December, against Michael Chandler.

After being approached by talkSPORT regarding his comeback at the Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenius event last week, McGregor responded “December”, as well as naming his opponent for UFC 296- none other than his TUF opposing coach, Chandler.

“(Michael) Chandler. I have to (do it).” added McGregor, followed by naming his next two fights as well. “Chandler next, in December. Then (Justin) Gaethje for the BMF (title), and then we will do the Nate (Diaz) trilogy.”

As the MMA fandom was finally getting excited to see his return, the Irishman appeared to have reverted his decision, announcing that he will not be fighting this year, citing the reason that he is “being kept from his livelihood”.

“I hold the power. I’m going to keep doing my thing. I’m in a great spot, and I’ll see you’s all soon. F**king early next year, hopefully. Please God. Someone, Ari, Ari. My man. I’m ready, yeah. December 16, I am ready. Nevada State Athletic Commission, Bob Bennett may have retired. Un-retire. Because when I’m around the game… ring Bob Bennett. Tell the commission what’s the story, because I’m being kept from my livelihood here. Turns out Bob’s retired and I’m like, ‘What the f**k?’. I’ve been on the top of the game f**king long.” wrote McGregor in a recent tweet. [H/T BJPenn.com]
