There will be a McGregor show in town sometime soon.

In a wide-ranging Twitter Q&A with fans over the weekend, the Dubliner answered a slew of questions as to his immediate future and said that he expects to be cleared to return to sparring in April after which he says, “a return will be imminent”.

“I will be full mixed martial arts sparring by April,” he wrote online. “Easily! By then a return will be imminent. But I must be patient. I will beat this!”

McGregor fractured the tibia and fibula just above the ankle on his left leg during his most recent fight at UFC 264 in July and has been providing updates as to his recovery since. He had previously stated that he suffered an injury to his left leg in preparation for the fight, and that he had mentally readied himself for a scenario in which he might suffer an injury.

In additional tweets, McGregor also indicated his excitement at using the “steel bar in my leg” in upcoming fights.
