If the negotiations between McGregor and the UFC go right, it could see the former champion return to action this July.
“We’re currently in negotiations,” McGregor told ABC-7’s Larry Mowry during the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Chicago (via MMA Junkie). “We’re aiming for July – we’ll see what happens. I am staying ready. This morning I was doing incline sprints on the treadmill on my program, the McGregor F.A.S.T. program, staying in a hotel room. So we’re staying on it, getting work in as we go.”
Negotiations aside, one thing McGregor was happy to do was to attend the St, Patrick’s Day Parade.
“It’s great to be here, a young Irish man, and treated with such respected. It’s breathtaking for me and I’m very happy to be here,” McGregor said.
