Conor McGregor claims he is back in the USADA pool and reveals when next fight date will be announced

Conor McGregor claims he is back in the USADA pool and has no ‘issues’ with them.

‘The Notorious’ has been out of the octagon for nearly two years after suffering defeat due to a broken foot at the hands of Dustin Poirier. He is now returning to the octagon against Michael Chandler.

The pair finished filming The Ultimate Fighter season 31 as coaches and will look to fight later this year. Donagh Corby asked the Irishman if he was back in the USADA pool, to which he replied:

“That’s done, man, that’s done. I’m ready; by year end, I’m back in that cage competing. I’m gearing up now, ready to go.”

Corby then asked him when the date for his fight against Michael Chandler would be announced. McGregor replied by saying:

“It’ll be announced during The Ultimate Fighter. The Ultimate Fighter is airing now in a couple of days on ESPN, and by the time that show finishes, we’ll have a date and everything set for the fans.”

Take a look at the interview:

Conor McGregor is preparing to return to the octagon against Michael Chandler. Both parties have signed the contracts, only the date and the location of the fight are yet to be announced.
