Conor McGregor’s Future in Combat Sports Remains Unclear

Conor McGregor signed on to become the next head coach on The Ultimate Fighter against fellow lightweight contender Michael Chandler with hopes to compete towards the end of the year. Unfortunately, he has yet to enter the USADA testing pool and he would have needed to be in the testing pool for six months before he would be eligible to fight again.

Dana White and the UFC are still holding out hope that Conor McGregor can still fight before the year is done. If anyone can possibly bend and break the rules to get a fight it certainly would be one of the most high-profiling figures in combat sports altogether, Conor McGregor.

Also, we know that Jake Paul would love to have this massive showdown with Conor McGregor but the chances of that happening could be quite slim as there would be a ton of obstacles, like Dana White and the UFC, before that fight can come to fruition. With that said, if that fight were to happen in MMA or boxing it certainly would set records for attendance, gate sales, and PPV buys. Let’s just wait and see what the future brings for both Jake Paul and Conor McGregor.
