Michael Bisping believes Conor McGregor will fight in December
Michael Bisping has recently shared his thoughts on the likelihood of Conor McGregor's return, as the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter is set to air in less than two weeks.
McGregor and Michael Chandler were selected as coaches for season 31 of the show, and the pair are set to do battle following the season finale. However, the Irishman is yet to re-enter the USADA drug-testing pool, which he left after breaking his leg in 2021.
Initially it appared that Conor McGregor may only need to provide two clean urine samples to be eligible to fight. However, USADA recently stated that 'The Notorious' will need to re-enter the pool for six months before he is allowed to fight, which caused a spat between the organization and McGregor.
Michael Bisping believes that McGregor and Chandler will face-off before the year is over, and said this during a recent YouTube video:
"In terms of a timeline, we're in May, so six months [from now] and he can fight at the end of the year... so the final card of the year at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. They've still got seven months for that, so McGregor's just got to get in the testing pool..."
