Conor McGregor, who in January 2020, contested in the Welterweight division and hinted to stay in the division, will now apparently make a comeback precisely after 1 year in the Lightweight division.

Though he didn’t mentioned the name of Conor McGregor, but if it is indeed in relation to the much talked about fight against him, the Diamond has evidently put a full stop to all the speculations regarding the concerned weight class of the targeted bout, by specifying the category of the fight as– 155 LBS.

So, with both professionals reported to be on the same page, it appears it is only a matter of time before this much anticipated rematch gets on the fight sheet. Moreover, with Khabib Nurmagomedov set to relinquish the Lightweight title, there are conjectures of it ultimately becoming the clash for the coveted UFC gold.
