Conor McGregor says that he is “confident we get the set date” when commenting on the possibility of making his return to the cage at UFC 300 in April in a Q&A with fans on Twitter.

McGregor, who hasn’t competed since suffering a serious injury to his lower left leg in his most recent fight in the summer of 2021, has been linked to making his comeback at the UFC 300 in April, a point after which he will have cleared all necessary hurdles ahead of his return to active competition. However, speaking to Ariel Helwani this week, SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh suggested that the UFC are considering delaying McGregor’s return until the summer.

But responding to fans on Twitter (or X, if you insist), McGregor said that he was “in” for UFC 300 and said that a lot of work is going on behind the scenes “to make it happen.”

Additionally, McGregor noted that his upcoming opponent, Michael Chandler, is a “good guy” but added that he will be more “emotionless” than he suggested he has been for some prior bouts — as he also reflected on his welterweight win over Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and his title wins against both Eddie Alvarez and Jose Aldo.
