Conor McGre­gor’s return to the Octa­gon is like­ly not far away accord­ing to UFC Pres­i­dent Dana White, who told TMZ Sports he expects the Irish super­star to fight this summer.

TMZ recent­ly asked White … do you think Conor will fight this year after recov­er­ing from the dev­as­tat­ing injury.

“I think so,” Dana told us. “He’s doing every­thing right with his leg. Hope­ful­ly he can come back this summer.”

Of course, the 33-year-old McGre­gor has­n’t set foot in the cage com­pet­ing since break­ing his leg against Dustin Poiri­er in July 2021.

Conor is cur­rent­ly ranked 9th in the UFC light­weight division…behind fight­ers like cham­pi­on Charles Oliveira, Justin Gaeth­je, Poiri­er, Michael Chan­dler and Tony Fer­gu­son, to name a few.

We also spoke to the big, barn-burn­ing UFC boss about a fight between Calvin Kat­tar and Giga Chikadze… a fight that Boston’s No. 5‑ranked for­ward won by unan­i­mous decision.

So what’s next for Kat­tar? Dana does­n’t know it yet, but clar­i­fies that Calvin is in a priv­i­leged position.

“Win­ning mas­sive­ly for him. Com­ing out of that Hol­loway fight which was amaz­ing and now he’s win­ning this fight against Giga. He’s in a good posi­tion. He’s in a real­ly good posi­tion, so we’ll see here.”
