UFC megastar Conor McGregor has taken to social media to drop a cryptic message for his fight fans.

“Notorious” has not competed inside the octagon since earning the UFC lightweight title with a finish over Eddie Alvarez back in 2016. Since then, the Irish native has been keeping busy in other ways.

Most recently, McGregor made his professional boxing debut against undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the summer of 2017. While McGregor made the payday of his career inside the squared circle, “Notorious” has since been dropping hints that he may make another run inside the octagon.

Taking to Twitter, McGregor has now offered his army of dedicated fight fans a cryptic message. The fighter simply states, “Stay ready.”

The message could deviate to a few things. However, it seems likely the UFC lightweight champion is hinting to being ready for UFC 223. UFC 223 goes down April 7 inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The live pay-per-view event is set to see tough division contender Khabib Nurmagomedov face off against UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. However, the two are set to face off for the undisputed title rather than Ferguson’s interim belt.

Conor McGregor will reportedly not be stripped of his title until Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have touched gloves and the fight has begun. The reasoning is likely concerning Nurmagomedov and Ferguson’s fight history.

The two mixed martial arts warriors have been scheduled to fight on multiple occasions already, but have never met inside the octagon. After missed weights and injuries, each fight has in one way or another been cancelled. Now fight fans are hopeful that the two will finally get a chance to throw down at UFC 223.

Conor McGregor is potentially hinting to staying ready for the event, in case he needs to step in on short notice to make a defense of his title. However, only time will tell the meaning behind McGregor’s cryptic message.
