UFC’s biggest superstar Conor McGregor has laid out his fighting plans for next year and it seems like the former two-division champion is back in the hunt for the lightweight title. Conor McGregor last fought at UFC 264 against his arch-rival Dustin Poirier. The duo fought their trilogy fight just a couple of months ago. Dustin Poirier won that fight by TKO via Doctor Stoppage. Conor had a tough time in the first round of the fight but what followed changed the course of the fight. Conor in the last moments of the first round broke his feet which resulted in doctor stoppage. Conor McGregor after the fight went through a very serious surgery and now is back in the gym and getting ready for his highly anticipated comeback.

Now while replying to a question posted, Conor replied by revealing his future fighting intentions.

“I’m facing whoever the fuck has that LW title next,” McGregor wrote in a tweet. “Deal with it. Take off your goggles and mark the trilogy ‘unfinished’. Deal with that too. The rest mentioned, after this. Deal. With. It”

Conor McGregor talked about his leg injury

Recently Conor McGregor has been very much active on Twitter and has been trying to heat up things before he arrives. He has already started to pick out his opponents as there is a long list of fighters he can be matched up against. Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier are two prime contenders for Conor’s comeback fight. Other options that Conor might wanna explore are Michael Chandler and the rest of the lightweight division.

In one of the most recent Twitter sprees, Conor opened up about the injury he suffered during his fight against Dustin at UFC 264. Conor revealed that he somewhat knew that he might break his leg as he already had a pre-existing injury leading up to the fight.

“Same leg, same spot. I attribute it to why I wasn’t in as much shock as Chris/Anderson where. I knew something may happen in advance. Chris was upset with my quote. Felt I was aiming at him. I was not. If any consolation to my reaction, It was because id a heads up it may snap.”

In my last camp I’d a severely damaged left leg. Many of my sessions consisted of starting in open guard bottom. And staying there. Full rounds remaining on bottom. I was beating people up until they backed away from me. It then translated to the fight. True story. @netflix.”
