Conor McGregor has confirmed plans to return to the ring in the near future, posting on Instagram: "I am fighting again. Period.".
The Notorious also claimed he wanted to take part in UFC 222, but they turned him town.
"I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn't enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need," he said.
"I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game.
"Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in. On top of the fighting. I am here.
"It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here."
McGregor hasn't fought in the UFC since November 2016, when he beat Eddie Alvarez to claim the lightweight title.
