So many Conor McGregor headlines

Conor McGregor is “filling out the paperwork” to re-enroll in the USADA testing pool, according to Dana White, which means the biggest star in MMA is back! Almost? Maybe? Remains to seen. Despite the lingering uncertainty, it’s clear at least one group of people is VERY glad to have McGregor in their lives again. Those people are the keepers of the MMA news cycle. McGregor hasn’t totally done anything yet upon his return to active duty and somehow every other story on the websites is already about him. We talk the McGregor Phenomenon this week.

Plus, UFC on ESPN rolls out this weekend and Justin Gaethje says what we’re all thinking about the BMF title.
