Longtime MMA reporter Ariel Helwani recently revealed that Conor McGregor could be making his return to action as early as this summer.
And during his most recent episode of The Ariel Helwani MMA Show, the ESPN reporter stated that he is in talks to face Justin Gaethje.
Conor made his successful return to action at UFC 246 earlier this year by knocking out Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds.
Dana White stated Conor could be in line for a title fight against Khabib Nurmagoemdov or Tony Ferguson.
Gaethje, meanwhile, has been lobbying for a fight against McGregor for some time now, and it sees he may just get his wish.
Justin was last seen knocking out Donald Cerrone, so the fight makes all the sense in the world.
Should this fight get made, there is no doubt that the winner deserves a crack at the 155-pound title.
