10 months ago By Jhon Woug

Conor McGregor’s return to the Octagon is always a highly anticipated event in the MMA world, and his upcoming bout at UFC 296 has fans buzzing with excitement. After some speculation and hints dropped by the Irish fighter himself, it’s now confirmed that McGregor will be facing Michael Chandler in what promises to be a blockbuster showdown. But beyond this exciting clash, who else could potentially step into the cage with McGregor for his much-awaited return? Here are five MMA stars who could be his next opponents:

  1. Justin Gaethje:

McGregor’s future plans include the possibility of facing the hard-hitting Justin Gaethje. Known for his aggressive fighting style and impressive knockout power, Gaethje could make for an electrifying matchup against McGregor. Gaethje has already expressed interest in fighting McGregor, and their clash could provide fireworks for the fans.

  1. Nate Diaz:

The rivalry between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz is legendary, with each fighter claiming a victory over the other. A trilogy fight between these two warriors would undoubtedly capture the attention of the MMA world. Diaz’s unyielding fighting spirit and McGregor’s striking prowess would make this matchup a fan favourite.

  1. Kamaru Usman:

Stepping into the welterweight division, Conor McGregor could potentially challenge Kamaru Usman for the title. Usman’s dominant wrestling and powerful striking could pose a unique challenge for McGregor, making it an intriguing stylistic clash.

  1. Tony Ferguson:

Known for his unorthodox fighting style and relentless pace, Tony Ferguson could provide an unpredictable and exciting matchup for McGregor. With both fighters having a history of trash talk, their buildup to a potential fight would undoubtedly capture the MMA community’s attention.

  1. Dustin Poirier:

A rematch against Dustin Poirier is always a possibility, given their heated rivalry. Poirier recently secured a win over McGregor, and a trilogy fight to settle the score would generate massive interest. The back-and-forth action between these two elite lightweights could steal the show.

As the excitement builds for Conor McGregor’s return at UFC 296 in June, fans are eagerly speculating about who his next opponent will be. With the landscape of MMA constantly evolving, any of these matchups could become a reality and deliver memorable moments inside the Octagon.

In the words of McGregor himself, “Chandler next, December,” has ignited the anticipation for his comeback fight. While the spotlight is currently on his clash with Michael Chandler, the MMA world is abuzz with speculation about his future opponents.

The UFC 296 card promises to be a blockbuster event, and with McGregor’s knack for creating headlines and captivating audiences, his return is certain to be a spectacle. Whether he faces a familiar foe like Nate Diaz or takes on a new challenge like Kamaru Usman, McGregor’s presence in the Octagon guarantees excitement and entertainment.

As fans await McGregor’s official return to action, the possibilities are endless. Who will step up to share the cage with the Irish superstar? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: UFC 296 will be a must-watch event for MMA enthusiasts around the world.
