UFC featherweight Conor McGregor was medically cleared this week to return to training without limitations. The brash Irishman has been recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL. He’ll return to the Octagon on July 19 in his hometown of Dublin to face rival Cole Miller in the UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Miller main event. The 25-year-old says he’ll break Miller in the first exchange.
He doesn’t have his sights set on just defeating Miller, McGregor plans to take over the division.
“It’s my division,” he said on UFC Tonight. “I’m going to stop Cole. Whoever is next. I’ll break Cub (Swanson). I’ll embarrass Chad (Mendes). I’ll annihilate Jose (Aldo). I’m coming to takeover the division,” he proclaimed.
