Conor McGregor Discusses When He Will Return, Fighting Diego Sanchez, Miesha Tate/Ronda Rousey Tweet And More

UFC featherweight Conor McGregor was last seen in action on UFC Fight Night 26 in August when he defeated Max Holloway by unanimous decision. After the fight a lot of hype was surrounding McGregor. People were saying he could be the next big thing in the UFC and could be the first ever European champion in the organization.

Then tragedy happened as McGregor had stated after the Holloway fight that he hurt his knee, but didn’t think it was too bad. It was announced that McGregor tore his ACL and would be sidelined indefinitely.

McGregor is in England for the UFC Fight Night 30 event tomorrow night in Manchester. “Notorious” did a media scrum earlier today and discussed how his rehab is going, when he thinks he will return, why he wants to fight Diego Sanchez at lightweight, his controversial tweet regarding Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey and more.

WWE Star Daniel Bryan Ignores UFC Star Diego Sanchez Regarding The “YES” Chants

The “YES” chant by Daniel Bryan has been quite arguably the biggest thing in the WWE in the last year. Bryan has been a WWE tag team champion and a two-time WWE champion. The Washington native will be headlining WWE’s Hell In A Cell pay-per-event against Randy Orton for the vacant WWE championship on Sunday, October 27th.

The “YES” chant though wasn’t started by Bryan. The “YES” chant was started by UFC star Diego Sanchez, who battles Gilbert Melendez tomorrow night at UFC 166.

Sanchez did an interview yesterday with MMAFighting.com, the topic came up and stated that Bryan hasn’t gotten back to him after reaching out to him. Sanchez is very happy though for how Bryan has taken the chant to new heights.

Watch the video above as the comments are toward the end of the interview.
