Conor McGregor appears to have potentially announced his UFC return for December 14 in Dublin, Ireland.
The 31-year-old former two-weight champion posted a tweet containing just this date and venue in the early hours of Monday morning, prompting many fans to assume the information is his next fight plan.

However, no official confirmation has followed and people currently remain unsure if he’s confirmed a comeback or something else.
The Irish star has had a tumultuous, controversy-laden 2019, not fighting since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov last October.
He recently insisted he does intend to get back in the Octagon this year and, as a result, has been called out by both Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje.
Therefore, a December 14 return appears plausible, though some fans have found an issue.
UFC already have a card scheduled for the same date in Las Vegas and it would be unusual for them to stage two events, albeit in separate time zones, on the same night.
Others have suggested they might move the card to accommodate McGregor due to his star power, but this remains mere speculation.
A UFC fight has not been held in Ireland since 2015.
