Former UFC champion Conor McGregor has been missing in action for quite some time now.

However, “Notorious” laid out his plans to return to the Octagon with two fights in 2024.

McGregor wants to tackle his rivalry with Michael Chandler in June before taking on Nate Diaz once more at the special Mexican Independence Day card slated for the Sphere in Las Vegas.

“I wish for (Diaz fight) on Mexican Independence Day in the Sphere,” McGregor wrote on Instagram. “Chandler, June. Diaz, September.

“I have let this be known.”

It has been almost three years since we last saw McGregor in action. In 2021, he lost to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 for a second time, suffering a leg injury in the process.

The last official win for the former two-division UFC champion came in 2020 when he topped Donald Cerrone at welterweight.

Conor McGregor Still Targets Michael Chandler Fight

McGregor and Chandler have been on a collision course for quite a while now. They were coaches on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter.

The bout, though, has been delayed for several reasons.

“Still holding hope for June 29th (to fight Chandler),” McGregor wrote. “Lack of action on it however is now causing lack of enthusiasm. I need a decision soon.

“I am the most tested athlete under this new regime. Yet no date to fight. The game is a bit lackluster also at present, which isn’t helping.”

He added “I hope these next few cards pop and I get a date. Eliminate distractions and begin real work towards it.”

McGregor-Diaz Trilogy Planned

Back in 2016, McGregor and Diaz had a pair of battles, with each fighter securing a win.
