The will-he or won’t-he saga of Conor McGregor’s plans to return to the Octagon saw a new turn on Thursday.

The latest update is a he-will lean.

McGregor, who hasn’t fought since his UFC 229 submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last October has since “retired” and unretired in addition to his multiple run-ins with the law that included a sexual assault investigation in Ireland and an arrest in Miami for allegedly stealing and smashing a fan’s phone.

But on Thursday, UFC boss Dana White said in a feature in “The Mac Life” that he expects McGregor to fight in 2019 and that he hasn’t turned down any opportunities to step into the Octagon.

But McGregor recently checked in at No. 21 on Forbes’ list of the world’s top-paid athletes with an income of $47 million. A large chunk of that presumably came from his fight with Khabib.

If McGregor doesn’t fight, his standing on that list is surely bound to fall substantially.
