Conor McGregor says he wants Michael Chandler in June, Nate Diaz in September at Noche UFC

Conor McGregor has a plan in mind, but he isn’t so sure the UFC is on board.

McGregor took to his Instagram Stories on Tuesday to air his frustration with the lack of clarity around his return to the octagon, all while laying out his ideal scenario for 2024. McGregor is hoping to get booked against Michael Chandler on June 29 (as he originally announced) and then against Nate Diaz in September at Noche UFC.

“I wish for (the Diaz fight) on Mexican Independence Day in the Sphere,” McGregor wrote. “Chandler, June. Diaz, September. I have let this be known.”

McGregor added, “Still holding hope for June 29th. Lack of action on it however is now causing lack of enthusiasm. I need a decision soon. I am the most tested athlete under this new regime. Yet no date to fight. The game is a bit lackluster also at present, which isn’t helping. I hope these next few cards pop and I get a date. Eliminate distractions and begin real work towards it.”

McGregor has been itching to return to the octagon for months ever since he wrapped his coaching role on Season 31 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” He’s been training and appears to be fully healed from his 2021 leg break in his fight against Dustin Poirier and has been publicly pressuring the UFC to book him.

UFC CEO Dana White was recently asked by MMA Junkie on the reason why McGregor has yet to be booked to fight, in which he gave vague answers and alluded to McGregor’s wealth, promotional duties with his movie “Road House,” and other factors.
