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.

Yup, yup, yup – yeah definitely, yeah,” Roddy told MMAJunkie in a recent interview about training Conor McGregor.

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 know he’s working very hard,” he said. “There’s no official date set yet, but Conor’s been training very hard, as you can see. He’s in good nick. If you’re looking at any of the pictures, he’s in phenomenal shape, he’s ready to go. I’m sure everybody’s excited to see him back.

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 – MMAJunkie.com)

Conor McGregor is coming off of a submission loss to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last October in Las Vegas.
