Conor McGregor expected to return to the spotlight at this year’s Grand National

It’s been an admittedly chaotic few months for Conor McGregor but then again, that tends to be the way he lives his life. After making the controversial move from the world of MMA into the equally as fierce world of boxing, he was arrested for attacking a bus full of rival UFC athletes.


Drama comes hand in hand with these fighting-based sports, so it’s hard to remain clued up on all the action. Luckily, the efforts of sites like TeamFA offer full coverage through their own boxing betting tips , previews, recommended bets and all of the biggest odds from the best bookmakers on the market.


Various specials have been released on Conor McGregor’s next move following on from what could be a step too far from the Irishman. Despite losing the respect of a lot of people from his actions, his options are anything but slim and the bookmakers are jumping on pricing up their own interpretation of what he’ll turn to next.


Coral predicting McGregor to feature at Aintree


One of the newer predictions for McGregor’s future is for him to make his next proper appearance at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool for the Grand National. He’s known for being a fan of the horses, memorably appearing in last year’s edition of the festival with his shirt unbuttoned and donning 70s style glasses. Coral are the only bookie providing odds, offering 4/5 for him to be in attendance in any capacity.


Could he return to UFC?


Although his turn to boxing last year seemed like the next step in McGregor’s impressive story, the chances of him going back to being an MMA athlete would be equally as likely, with bookies offering odds of 1/10 for him to fight again in the UFC. He’s also given odds of 8/13 for him to fight in the UFC this year alone, so it’s looking like something a lot of the top bookies are predicting quite predominantly.


The crucial meeting between him and Floyd Mayweather in the ring ended in defeat for The Notorious but with Mayweather claiming he’ll be moving over to UFC fighting, odds for them to meet again in The Octagon are priced at 4/1, and it’s looking like a clever bet with a lot of boxing fans being against him featuring in the sport any time soon.


The stranger markets on offer


Some might say that the markets already mentioned are strange enough based on McGregor’s recent arrest in New York and how that could affect his career in either boxing or MMA. Surely the most bizarre market available to back on Conor McGregor is over whether he’d appear in next year’s WWE, with odds of 1/1 being tempting after considering his questionable decision-making so far.
