Conor McGregor will face a familiar face when he returns to action, according to the bookies.

McGregor has begun his recovery from a broken leg suffered in his TKO defeat to Dustin Poirier on July 10.

The Irishman suffered the injury in the first round of that trilogy fight with Poirier and he was quick to demand a fourth meeting despite the injury.

Boylesports is taking bets on who McGregor will face in either a boxing ring or the UFC octagon when he does return and it is no shock to see Poirier as a leading contender.

The American knocked McGregor out in January and they have been engaged in a war of words ever since.

Poirier is 15/8 to be the next opponent for the former two-weight world champion, but the bookies do not make him the favourite.

Instead Boylesports believe McGregor could look to settle his rivalry with Nate Diaz.

Diaz became the first man to beat the Irishman under the UFC banner back in March 2016, but McGregor avenged that loss with a decision several months later.

There has been talk of a trilogy fight ever since and Boylesports are 11/8 that Diaz is McGregor’s next opponent.

Prior to the third fight with Poirier there was talk of a return to boxing to face Manny Pacquiao, and it is 6/1 that that is McGregor’s next outing.

A meeting with social media star-turned pro boxer Jake Paul is also 6/1, while a rematch with Floyd Mayweather is out at 40/1.
