Daniel Cormier has his say on Conor McGregor’s potential opponent when he returns to the UFC Octagon

Daniel Cormier doesn’t believe Conor McGregor will return to the UFC just to build up another young fighter.

McGregor’s highly anctipiated UFC return remains a mystery as neither an opponent nor a date have been confirmed.

‘Notorious’ has been the subject of call-outs from fighters such as Jorge Masvidal, Michael Chandler and Charles Oliveira. However, the uncertainty surrounding his return means nothing has been agreed.

Speaking on the Talking Brawls YouTube channel, ‘DC’ revealed he originally wanted to see the Irishman fight Nate Diaz or Michael Chandler. Cormier doesn’t know what’s next for McGregor though.

“I thought he should fight Nate Diaz. I thought he was going to fight Michael Chandler, but Chandler sounds like he’s going to fight [Dustin Poirier]. I really don’t know what’s next for Conor McGregor.”

He added:

“I don’t feel like you can just put him in there with anyone. I don’t feel like you can just put him in there with anyone. Whoever he fights has to have some name value, Conor won’t be used to elevate young talent.”

The UFC star is currently recovering from a serious leg break injury in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier last year. Dana White had previously stated that he believed McGregor would return to the octagon by early 2023.

However, there is no information suggesting that the Irishman is close to agreeing a fight with an opponent.
