Conor McGregor Displays Training Progress Ahead Of Projected Summer Return
Conor McGregor continues to drop hints that he’s nearing his UFC return.
The MAC Life – which McGregor owns — released a video on Sunday of McGregor hitting pads while showing off his movement, making it seem like the rehabilitation for his broken tibia has gone well for the Irishman.
McGregor has not fought since suffering a tibia break in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July. The former double champion lost the fight along with sustaining the injury.
Though McGregor has not been in the octagon since then, he has remained active on social media, updating his followers on his rehabilitation journey.
Back in December, however, McGregor posted photos of his weight transformation on Twitter, claiming to be “190lbs of granite.” McGregor’s, who is a former featherweight and lightweight champion, previous heaviest weight was 170 pounds.
He is 1-3 in his last four UFC fights, but remains one of the biggest stars of the promotion. Even President Dana White said he would be happy to give McGregor a title shot upon his return.
White also previously said that McGregor would return in the late summer or early fall.
