Conor McGregor hints at return to The Ultimate Fighter

‘It is full immersion which is needed’: Conor McGregor reveals he has been offered to coach on The Ultimate Fighter to start his UFC return – and Michael Chandler is the first in line to go against the Irishman

  • Conor McGregor could be back on UFC screens as part of the television series 
  • The Irishman has yet to return to the octagon after a leg break suffered in 2021 
  • While McGregor’s timeline to return is unknown, he has stayed active on Twitter 

Conor McGregor could be returning to The Ultimate Fighter in a coaching capacity after revealing the UFC has once again offered him the position. 

The Notorious has previously been on the show, coaching his team to success in 2015 against fellow fighter, Urijah Faber. 

Now, McGregor has revealed on Instagram that he is open to the idea, while reminiscing on his achievements in the octagon simultaneously, perhaps hinting at a strong return to the screen in and out of the arena.

‘This is a snap from the original Ultimate Fighter house. Where I coached vs. Urijah Faber,’ McGregor wrote on his Instagram. 

‘This photo was just before the show tho. It was right before I won my first world title beating Urijah team mate Chad Mendes around. 

‘I then went on to coach the famous fight show straight after the fight. With a big black eye and a gash, my tricolor, and my new and first ever UFC gold belt, I waltzed into the notorious fight gym in Las Vegas.

‘The slickest suits and shouts the show had ever seen before. On top of the silverware. And I coached my team to victory. Crazy. Some journey. I have just been offered to coach this role again.

‘I like it. It is full immersion which is needed. I see fighters lining up. I know whats ahead I been ready motherfuckers. #StayReady.’

UFC president Dana White seemed to all but confirm the legitimacy – potentially even McGregor’s return – by sharing the post on his story.

McGregor has not returned to the UFC since breaking his leg in July of 2021 in a loss to Dustin Poirier. 

A timeline for McGregor’s comeback to the octagon is still very much unknown. Though when he does, Michael Chandler is set to be waiting for the Irishman.
