While celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago over the weekend, Conor McGregor confirmed that he is in negotiations for his next UFC fight and is aiming for it to take place in July.

“We’re currently in negotiations,” McGregor told ABC7 in Chicago (h/t MMAWeekly). “We’re aiming for July so we’ll see what happens. I am staying ready. This morning I was doing incline sprints on the treadmill on my program, the McGregor F.A.S.T. program, staying in a hotel room. So we’re staying on it. Getting work in as we go.”

July would likely place McGregor’s fight at International Fight Week in Las Vegas.

McGregor vs. Donald Cerrone was one rumored bout but that fight reportedly fell apart after UFC wanted to give it co-main event status, something McGregor wasn’t happy with.
