The UFC president Dana White has revealed that Conor McGregor is "chomping at the bit" to get back inside the Octagon — this and much more on Friday's social media roundup.
Dana White talks about Conor McGregor's potential return
Since Conor McGregor broke his leg in his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier, he has been constantly talking about his potential return back into the Octagon to fight.

After seeing Whites' comments, McGregor took to Twitter to react.
You can see McGregor's reaction above where he says "unfinished business to attend to."
When McGregor talks about unfinished business he will of course be referring to Dustin Poirier. McGregor has been talking for several weeks now about having unfinished business with Poirier despite having two losses to him in three fights.
Do you think that the UFC could make a fourth fight between Poirier and McGregor?

March 19 is looking very good at the moment for the UFC’s return to London, sources say. Expect Muhammad Mokhaev to make his debut on that card.
