Conor McGregor Frustrated Over Poor Communication with UFC

Conor McGregor’s comeback tale is like a jigsaw puzzle with missing pieces. Everywhere you look, fans are scratching their heads, trying to piece it together.

The man who once ruled the MMA world hasn’t stepped into the Octagon since that fateful night in July 2021. Remember? His leg snapped in a trilogy bout against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. Since then, McGregor’s been off the radar, healing and, oddly enough, dipping his toes into acting with a role in the “Road House” remake.

Fast forward to October. McGregor jumps back into the drug testing pool, sparking rumors of a return. Yet, here we are, still waiting for a solid date. It’s like waiting for a text back that never comes.

McGregor’s been eyeing a grand return during International Fight Week in June. He’s also hinted at a showdown at the UFC’s mega event at the Sphere on Mexican Independence Day in September. But communication seems to be as clear as mud, leaving us all in the dark about his next move.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, I did call for that also that would be great for me, June 29 and then the Sphere,” McGregor shared with talkSPORT MMA. “And then what? What happens then? I don’t know. And I wonder do they know? There’s been no talk about anything. So, I wonder what next.”

When it comes to who he wants to fight, McGregor’s eyes are set on a fourth dance with Poirier. Poirier’s recent victory at UFC 299 over Benoit St. Denis has set the stage for what McGregor calls “the real trilogy,” hoping to finally put an end to their saga. Not to forget, there’s the Nate Diaz trilogy that’s been simmering on the back burner.

However, Dana White threw cold water on the Diaz fight, much to McGregor’s frustration. “It’s good to see Poirier get that win [at UFC 299]. That makes this the quadrilogy, we’ll say the real trilogy [due to the leg injury in the third fight], the finish of it, put an end to it, put a finish to it. That is a huge bout right now,” McGregor reflected. “I anticipated the result [UFC 299] would go that way and I was happy to see it. And that’s a big one for sure. Obviously, I’ve got the [Nate] Diaz trilogy. That’s what I had said for the Sphere. You know there was cold water put on that publicly off the bat, and I wasn’t happy with that. I need discussion or conversation because if I lose interest and I’m not getting anything back, I just drift off my man. So I hope I can get something in and get dialed in.”

Originally, McGregor was supposed to square off against Michael Chandler, who’s been itching for a fight since his submission loss to Poirier in November 2022. McGregor, however, hasn’t closed the door on facing his rival coach from “The Ultimate Fighter 31.”

“Chandler, of course,” he said. “I assume that would be the first one.”

In a recent chat on “The MMA Hour,” John Kavanagh, McGregor’s long-time coach, spilled the beans. McGregor is more than ready to jump back into action. The UFC’s silence? Kavanagh finds it “weird.”
