Conor McGregor's Coach Drops Hint That His Fighter Will Compete At UFC 244 Card Headlined By Nate Diaz

UFC officially announced Diaz vs. Masvidal for UFC 244 in New York and the card could also feature McGregor, who hasn't fought since his devastating loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last October.

McGregor's coach John Kavanagh wrote "See you there" in reply to a Tweet about UFC 244, which sent social media into overdrive.

Naturally, his post blew up on Twitter.

McGregor's arch rival Nurmagomedov returned to the UFC on Saturday and the former 'champ-champ' wasted no time in responding to his victory over Dustin Poirier.

Meanwhile, despite rumours of a rift between Kavanagh and McGregor, he insists he'll be in his corner when he does eventually return to the famed Octagon.

"I don't think [me cornering Conor] is in doubt," he said back in May. "I'm sure I'll be there, we talk almost daily.

"He doesn't have a fight lined up yet but as soon as he does we'll get the old gang back together and starting plotting, training."

As mentioned previously, Diaz will make a swift return to the promotion when he faces Masvidal in a five-round main-event at the iconic Madison Square Garden.

Speaking on the bout, Dana White said: "It's one of those fights that is fun, interesting, fans are into it, you want to see for five rounds -- yet it's too big to be a fight night.

"So we made it a pay-per-view. I will end up stacking this card with killer fights. The main event will be those two."
