In the UFC, there are two types of fighters: those who have been knocked down and those who have not. Conor McGregor is the former. He has faced more setbacks in his career than most, but that has only made him stronger.

After breaking his leg in a fight against Dustin Poirier, McGregor was back in the gym within weeks and is already looking sharp. McGregor is known for his incredible work ethic and for never giving up. The injury put the UFC featherweight title on hold and many were unsure if or when he would return to the octagon, but it looks like “The Notorious” is eager to get back to work.

McGregor started his career as a boxer and has never been one to shy away from a challenge, so it’s no surprise that he’s already back in the gym.

The Irishman recently tweeted a video of him training at the Crumlin Boxing Club in Dublin. The former two division champ is seen going at his training hot and heavy. He is seen practicing his hooks and uppercuts and trying out what would be deadly combinations. He says in his tweet,“I’m gonna break a head with these. Add it to the list of heads.”

Mcgregor who looks like he is on the fast track to recovery is eyeing to return to the octagon this year. The Notorious has expressed his intention to move up to the welterweight upon his return and would like to take on Kamaru Usman for the title.

In an interview with The Mac Life, McGregor tells, “Myself versus Usman for the 170-pound title in my comeback fight is the one I’m eyeballing at the minute…Why cut the weight? I’ve already won the 155-pound title…I feel confident against Usman — a jab-happy, sloppy, orthodox wrestler with no submissions whatsoever. What’s he going to do? Where’s the danger here? I don’t see danger.”

Kamaru Usman is most likely to defend his title against Leon Edward and if Conor is to return around the same time, it might be interesting to see what the UFC top dogs will decide.
