“Conor McGregor will fight again,” he revealed.

“Me and Conor communicate every day. We’ve been talking all this week. Things are good with Conor and I and we’ll get something figured out soon.

“Conor likes to be in a position where he holds the cards and he does what he wants to do. And, you know, he and I figure out how to work together and how to make it all happen.”

The dad-of-two had made clear that he wouldn’t return to the sport, unless he gets shares in the UFC.

Before his “retirement” Tweet Conor had said he was in talks to fight again this July – with UFC’s Fight Week taking place in Vegas.
