McGregor may be set for Octagon return against Ferguson.

Conor McGregor could be back in the octagon in Las Vegas next month for UFC title defence against Tony Ferguson, says Dana White.UFC president Dana White has hinted Conor McGregor could make his highly-anticipated return to the octagon before the end of the year.The Irishman has been enjoying life since his money-spinning bout with Floyd Mayweather but now has his sights set on defending his lightweight title.Interim champion Tony Ferguson is the most likely opponent whilst a trilogy bout with Nate Diaz remains a possibility. And if the promotion cannot finalise a deal for that date then the Notorious will likely return at their next pay-per-view in ‘Sin City’ on March 3.McGregor recently said that he was in no hurry to step back into the cage, insisting the ball is well and truly in his court.‘Seeing this, it’s taking me back and making me realise, if I really, truly want to get back into the fighting – I’m in the negotiation stage,’ he said following the premiere of his documentary movie ‘Notorious’.‘Everyone’s trying to get me to do something for money, and that’s all the way up, and all the way down. That’s from the fight game, that’s talk, that’s what they’re trying to do.
