Did Conor McGregor Announce UFC Return In Mysterious Instagram Post?

Conor McGregor has returned to some place from wherever he has been.

The mixed-martial-arts superstar declared he’s “back” Sunday night in a somewhat cryptic Instagram post. McGregor shared a photo of himself with a T-shirt covering his face and included a simple caption.

“Click clack I’m back,” he wrote.

Many interpret McGregor’s post as an announcement of his return to the UFC circuit, some 20-plus months after his last fight in the promotion.

McGregor pleaded guilty last week to a disorderly conduction charge, which stemmed from his April attack on a bus in Brooklyn. The plea deal allows McGregor to avoid a jail sentence or blemish on his criminal record and paves the way for him to fight in UFC in the near future.

He reportedly is considering fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov  — who was on the bus McGregor attacked — before the end of 2018, and many fans are salivating over the potential superfight.
