Conor McGregor is an exceptional performer inside the Octagon. The fighter has been out of the octagon after his bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021.
Poirier defeated him for the second time in a row, and also gave him a leg break injury to remember the bout. McGregor is on the path to recovery after going under the knife to fix his issue.
McGregor was in the highlight after he posted a video online where he looked all fit and ready. His body looks jacked up, and some fans speculated that he may be on some steroids during this time.
McGregor gave those who believe so a response via Twitter that puts doubts to rest. While the original tweet about this has been deleted by the tweet author, Matt Marenic asked what McGregor is up to,
Proper Twelve and Forged Irish Stout. Served alongside my own, organically grown, Irish beef, served on a hot stone. Tidl spray for pain.
McGregor bagged the role in the upcoming reboot of “Road House.” His manager Tim Simpson informed MMA Junkie that he is doing well and will be back in time for a return thanks to his team that is working alongside him.
It fits in perfectly. He’s still on track for a big return next year, but this fits in perfectly in the meantime. The leg is still healing. I think there’s a little bit more to go on that, but he’s been training like a madman twice a day, every day. He’s got his full team out there: the McGregor Fast team, all his health and fitness guys, physio, boxing, coaching. He’s been going hard. He’s been training super hard. He’s in amazing shape – just final adjustments to get that leg back where it needs to be.
Michael Chandler would be “The Notorious One” first opponent back to the Octagon. Chandler spoke to a different platform before he goes up against Poirier at UFC’s grand return to Madison Square Garden on Nov. 12 at UFC 281.
Yeah, I’ve said this numerous times too. You never get your hopes up for a Conor fight. With the landscape of mixed martial arts, where Conor is, his last couple of fights, obviously coming off of a really bad injury, and also him earning the right to pick and choose when and where he fights, and how often he fights… he’s got a ton of options so I didn’t really get too high on it. I didn’t really put my faith in that fight actually happening even though there was some good momentum and there still is some good momentum. I still got my sights set on becoming world champion.
We’ll have to see how successful Conor McGregor’s return to the UFC might be. Obviously, he will have the entire world watching.
