UFC fans, brace yourselves, as Conor McGregor is back in the gym and looking sharper than ever.
The former two-division UFC champion is gearing up for his long-awaited return to the Octagon, and recent training glimpses suggest he's operating at total capacity.
Earlier this year, McGregor set the MMA world abuzz by announcing his anticipated return in June, where he intended to face Michael Chandler at middleweight. However, UFC CEO Dana White later dismissed this plan, adding a layer of frustration for the Irish star.
Despite the ongoing drama surrounding McGregor's return fight, it's evident that the fighter remains focused on his training. McGregor's participation in The Ultimate Fighter 31 was eagerly anticipated, allowing fans to witness his prowess following the broken tibia suffered at UFC 264. Recent training sessions indicate that McGregor has regained his form more than two years after the injury.
While a headlining slot at UFC 300 seems unlikely with only two months left until the event, the prospect of McGregor's return later in the year promises to be one of the most significant combat sports events in recent memory. The former champion's dedication in the gym signals an imminent comeback, and fans can expect fireworks when he steps back into the Octagon, showcasing the skills that made him a two-division UFC champion.
