Conor McGregor Reveals He Agreed To Fight At UFC 224

Conor McGregor posted on social media on Wednesday that he agreed to make a history-making return to the UFC last month. The former featherweight and lightweight champion hasn’t fought in MMA since winning the 155-pound belt in November 2016.  McGregor took to Instagram to celebrate his placement at No. 4 on the Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid athletes for 2017, but then added that he would have placed higher with an “agreed May 12th bout in Rio de Janeiro” before “something came up.” That fight almost certainly would have been against Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight championship.
