Back then in January 2020, Conor McGregor started the year with the victory against Donald Cerrone. The respective fighter put down his opponent in less than a minute.
Most folks believe that 2020 is going to be the new yearly season for the fighter. But who knew that the pandemic took over all of the sport events. Pandemic has indeed changed everything so that we must hold our willingness to watch Conor on screen a little bit.
But recently, the UFC Officials have made the announcement that there was a high possibility that Conor McGregor would return again at the end of 2020.
In the UFC 256, the officials confirmed that Kamaru Usman had pulled out of the bout against Gilbert Burns. It is because the injury that has yet to be recovered 100%. He needs more time because the impact from the fighting with Jorge Masvidal in the early 2020 has yet to be finished. Currently, the UFC 256 has no headliner to show. It will take place in December 12th.
Many people have been speculating about how the UFC 256 Vacant card will be going on. The UFC 256 seems to have an alternative on the card.
Let’s not forget about the co-main event. In this category, Amanda Nunes will defend her featherweight title against Megan Anderson. It is also possible for the UFC to make this as the main event.
But it is also possible that McGregor will fill the slot. After all, the UFC fans won’t be bothered with the changes of the new main event for the night. The UFC has the tradition to put the championship bouts as the main event of the card. But there’s a possibility that UFC will also make the main event without a title or championship fight. And here is where McGregor enters in the plan of the officials.
This possibility shows up for a good reason. John Kavanagh, McGregor’s coach, implied that McGregor could fill in the main event for the UFC 256 card. Although it was just a cryptic tweet, the public has been open to the possibility as well.
But don’t keep your hope too high yet because the situation of McGregor is still unsure. He has a bunch of plans. Let’s not overlook that he also supposedly took on Manny Pacquiao in the boxing match. The most possible opponent is Dustin Poirier. We know that the possibility of this fighting has been up and down because of several factors. It is highly possible that the UFC 256 card will feature Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier.
