This weekend will mark “Mystic Mac” Conor McGregor’s return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship ring after his loss to equally controversial boxing champion Floyd Mayweather last summer. This detour into the world of boxing was ultimately a disapointment for fans of both mixed martial arts and the “sweet science”, as many called it a cash grab for both fighters. Now, McGregor will return back to the sport that made him one of the most captivating athletes in sports today as he steps into the ring for UFC 229: Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov this weekend in Las Vegas. 

While McGregor is as infamous in the sport for his offstage antics and braggadocious attitude, he has been able to back up his actions in the ring for the most part with an impressive record of 21-3-0. While many fighters try to work their way back into a sport after a period of absence, this seems like it is not the case for McGregor. His oppenent, Nurmagomedov, is one of the fiercest fighters in the sport with an astounding record of 26-0-0. It might be time for McGregor to put up or be figurativly shut up by a sport the sport that kept moving after he decided to leave.
