Ariel Helwani Clarifies Reports That Conor McGregor Is Set To Return At UFC 219

MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani has responded to reports that McGregor vs Diaz III is close to being announced…

Over the weekend, reports suggested that Conor McGregor had finally booked a comeback bout with Nate Diaz and was scheduled to return to the octagon on the 30th of December at UFC 219.

However, reports that the fight was close to being announced did seem somewhat premature given the fact that no reputable MMA publications had reported on any developments in recent weeks.
