Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor has stated that he wants to fight the reigning UFC lightweight champion in his comeback fight. Also, Conor has suggested that Charles Oliveira should not fight Justin Gaethje at UFC 274 and instead wait to fight Conor in July 2022. Conor McGregor is unquestionably the biggest draw in MMA. He holds several records for the biggest PPVs across combats sports. Though he hasn’t been actively fighting in the past couple of years, 2021 was when he announced his return and had fought two back-to-back fights against Dustin Poirier. Even though he lost both those fights, Conor is still highly motivated to make his comeback and get his lightweight title back.

Conor McGregor might fight for the title next

Conor McGregor recently appeared at Bellator 275 and was asked by the reporter about his future in the fight game and also asked about the lightweight title fight between Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje which is expected to take place at UFC 274.

“Is it though? It’s not announced. I don’t know either, I’ve heard. Maybe if the man (Charles Oliveira) is wise you will give it a month or two,” McGregor said to Severe MMA at Bellator 275. “July seems okay for me, I can’t say too early, but if I’m sparring April, May, June, July. I could slap the head of most of these guys by the end of April, you know what I’m saying. My first spar could be a fight.”
