Now that, more than a year after Conor McGregor’s last fight in the UFC, promotion president Dana White finally appears serious about stripping the Irishman of his lightweight belt, McGregor appears willing to entertain the idea of once again stepping into the octagon.

He proclaimed as much in a recent Instagram post, purporting as well that he’d offered to fight as an injury replacement at UFC 222

He wrote:

I am fighting again. Period.

I am the best at this.

I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn’t enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need.

I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game.

Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in.

On top of the fighting.

I am here.

It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here.

Yours sincerely,

The Champ Champ™

Let’s just hope he’s not counting the farcically short bout that would be his MMA-rules rematch with Floyd Mayweather.
