Conor McGregor is beaming with confidence about his chances of returning to glory upon his UFC return.

McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC), a former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, has been out of action since July when he suffered a broken leg in his first-round TKO loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. “The Notorious”, a former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, sustained a serious injury that required surgery.

It has not been a pleasant experience for the Irishman so far. He’s made headlines for all the wrong reasons, from his questionable Twitter rants to his red carpet scuffle with Machine Gun Kelly at the MTV Video Music Awards to allegations he punched a famous Italian DJ in Rome. Fair questions have been raised about his priorities regarding fighting.

McGregor provided some hope for his followers on Friday during a Twitter Q&A.

During the sessions, McGregor boasted about his progress with recovery after surgery, and issued a stern warning to all the fighters out there who could be in his path when he makes his targeted octagon return in 2022.

Check out the highlights below:

Powering up

There are pro’s and cons to everything. The last three months were difficult for me to move so I took heavy loads with me and moved them. Repeat.

Play with the cards you are dealt.

McGregor is yet to reveal who he would like fight when he returns to the UFC. McGregor was the subject of a Tony Ferguson callout and has also been chatting online with Nate Diaz ahead of a possible trilogy fight.

After spending months grieving for his loss to Poirier, the United States of America, McGregor returned to Dublin.
