Conor McGregor is back in the octagon as he expands his training regime for an expected return to UFC next year.

The & # 39; Notorious One & # 39; had hinted that he could take action again in December with UFC president Dana White who is considering adding him to the UFC 245 card in Las Vegas.
Since then, White has said that an early return next year is much more likely for McGregor.
He told TMZ Sports: & # 39; If he doesn't fight in December, it will be early next year. Conor wants Dublin, but we have Vegas. The (Khabib rematch) is also possible on the road.
& # 39; I think Conor would rather fight with someone else, the Ferguson fight should happen, there are many possibilities.
& # 39; To sit here now and say who's going to fight who, I don't know until this whole thing takes place. Masvidal – Diaz winner is also in the mix. & # 39;

McGregor is desperate to get back in the cage, but has other options for him.
Former world champion boxer Paulie Malignnagi reportedly offered McGregor this week a & # 39; winner takes all & # 39; bare knuckle boxing match.
Tension has been simmered between the couple since McGregor had images of him sparring in the run-up to his blockbuster mega-fight against Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
Malignaggi lost against UFC star & # 39; s training partner Artem Lobov in a bare knuckle in June and a potential collision with McGregor at the moment seems unlikely.
