Conor McGregor is back in action and he looks bigger and better than before. The UFC superstar has been out of action following his ankle injury in UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier for which he had to undergo surgery. That was over a year ago.
Meanwhile, Conor remained active on social media where a significant transformation in his physique could be seen since 2021. Recently Conor was spotted at the UFC Apex and he is reportedly to fight American star Michael Chandler.
New footage released showed Conor McGregor training with other athletes for ESPN’s The Ultimate Fighter. Fans are ecstatic to see Conor back in action and awaiting the airing of the show following which McGregor is to fight Chandler.
“I love fighting so dearly. I had a great experience coaching and training with a solid crew of young athletes on @espn’s @ultimatefighter! Alongside my long time, all time, all star team! Airing May 20th everywhere. @ufc” says Conor on Instagram.
