Conor McGregor went and got everyone excited after he announced that he would be returning to MMA on January 18, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since then, there has been no movement regarding Conor’s return.
Which is alarming since that date is roughly two months from now.
Now it seems Conor McGregor’s return — which was supposed to be at UFC 246 on Jan. 18 — is not going to happen.
According to UFC’s events page, UFC 246 has now been moved to February 8 in Houston, Texas, which will feature a light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes.
Furthermore, UFC heavyweight Aleksei Oleinik posted a picture of a fight contract he received for January 18th.
And the event is not a PPV event, but a Fight Night card.

only 2 questions:
-Should I sign a contract for the fight?
– Who should I give the gloves from my victory fight over Travis Browne?@ETFMG_CEO @ETFMG @FirstRoundMgmt#ufc #oleynik #etfmg $MJ #victory pic.twitter.com/KPB1uUNAf6

Obviously, Conor is NOT going to be fighting at a Fight Night event on ESPN+ or ESPN, as his talent and fame HAS to be reserved for a big pay-per-view (PPV) event.
So what this means is that Conor won’t be fighting on January 18 barring a last-minute surprise announcement from UFC.
That said, McGregor’s comeback, it seems, likely won’t happen until February at the earliest.
