Former two-division UFC champion from Ireland Conor McGregor has been out of action for over a year now and is looking to return on January 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Although his opponent hasn’t been revealed yet, but fans believe it’s going to be Donald Cerrone, who is currently on a two-fight losing skid. If McGregor does fight Cerrone, he will be training at SBG Ireland under his longtime trainer Owen Roddy.

If it is ‘Cowboy,’ it would be an exciting fight, yeah,” he said. “I said this a couple of months ago: ‘Cowboy’ and Conor is a great fight for the fans. Two guys that are exciting strikers – although ‘Cowboy’ is phenomenal on the ground, as well, but I think if it was a fight between them, it would be a striking battle, and I think it would be one for the fans, so if it is that, it’ll be an exciting one.”

He also said that the Irishmen is training hard for his return and is in phenomenal shape.

I just want to see Conor back in,” he concluded. “I think everybody just wants to see Conor back in the UFC, bring back that spectacle that is his fights. Nobody does it like Conor, and for me, I just want to see him back in there. Whatever happens after that, who knows?” (h/t –
