Ilia Topuria is a UFC featherweight who has been undefeated. She entered the Conor McGregor sweepstakes.
McGregor is not in the Octagon since he lost to Dustin Poirier by a crushing margin in July 2021.

McGregor recently teased a big announcement for New Year’s Day, with many suspecting, or at the very least hoping, that it will pertain to his quote-unquote “greatest comeback in combat sports history.”
McGregor is still expected to fight former Bellator MMA champion ‘Iron’ Michael Chandler in 2024, but with no official announcements thus far, it’s always possible that the UFC could pivot to a completely different fight for the Irishman. Of the names on that short list, Ilia Topuria is likely not one of them, but that didn’t stop the Spanish standout from shooting his shot on social media.
