Conor McGregor is cleared to fight and is putting the entire division on notice.
The Irish-born fighter has been sidelined since last August with an ACL injury, but it appears the delay will not last much longer, as the UFC officially announced that McGregor will be headlining the UFC's return to Ireland against fellow featherweight Cole Miller.
"What knee? The knee is a distant memory. I'm done talking about it. I've got the all clear. Someone is going to pay. First in line is Cole Miller on July 19 in my hometown of Dublin."
McGregor then focused his attention towards his opponent Cole Miller, who he believes took the "brave" decision to call him out because he was "under the influence of post-fight adrenaline."
"I stay ready. That man opened his mouth. He was under the influence of post-fight adrenaline and it has the same effect as alcohol. It makes you brave. But guess what happened? It wore off. Now he has to face the reality that he's going to face me - me coming back from this injury is a man possessed. I'm going to go in there and break him in the very first exchange."
"I'm coming to get him. And not just him - forget him - I've listened to everyone calling me out. Now I'm back and I'm going to rip through them. I'll smash Chad Mendes, I'll annihilate Jose Aldo. I'm coming to take over the division. It's my division."
