Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor fought for the third time in the lightweight division in the main event of UFC 264, with the Irish fighter breaking his left leg in round one.

Conor's leg injury occurred in July 2021, and he has not fought since, prompting speculation that he is retiring.

Meanwhile, Conor began to slowly heal through many operations and recovery techniques recommended by his doctors.

Dana White recently confirmed that Conor is no longer in the USADA testing pool.

Conor tweeted recently that he is clear for testing in February. After completing his two tests as per USADA, he will look to book a fight.

Under USADA's rules, a fighter must be in the pool for six months and pass at least two tests before they can compete.

After such a successful MMA career, fans have been speculating if McGregor will be putting down the gloves and stepping away from the MMA ring.

Although this tweet reveals a potential timeline for the Irishman, it is a joyful day for McGregor fans as he will possibly be able to fight next year.
