UFC icon Conor McGregor is widely regarded as one of the most influential mixed martial artists of all time. He was the first true superstar alongside former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to break through into the mainstream and elevate the sport to new heights. In a recent Facebook post made to his account, McGregor looked absolutely jacked while flexing on a bike.
The former two-division champion was last seen in action against the Louisiana bruiser Dustin Poirier in Jul. 2021 at UFC 264. It would be the third time the pair clashed after Poirier leveled the score with a win in their second outing. McGregor started off strong with a solid first round but succumbed to a freak leg break injury. Following the anticlimactic result, McGregor underwent surgery for the broken tibia and has remained on the sidelines in recovery.
McGregor started his professional MMA career at 145 pounds. In Dec. 2014, he skyrocketed his celebrity status after knocking out featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo, who was undefeated for a decade. Though, McGregor dispatched him in just 13 seconds to become the undisputed featherweight champion at UFC 194. He cemented his status further with a phenomenal knockout over ex-155-pound champion Eddie Alvarez in 2016 to become the first fighter in the company’s history to hold two UFC titles simultaneously.
In Dec. 2021, Conor McGregor made headlines for a huge physique update that he shared with his 46.2 million Instagram followers. He appeared to be recovering well and claimed that he was tipping the scales at 190 pounds, far ahead of his fight weight history.

Fans will get to see McGregor grace the movie theatres soon. He recently wrapped up shooting for his Hollywood debut in the upcoming reboot of the 1989 cult classic “Road House” alongside A-list actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
“The Notorious” isn’t the only UFC juggernaut showcasing a ripped physique. After finding out he only had ten years left to live by a DNA expert, UFC President Dana White dropped 30 pounds and continues to undergo a dramatic physique transformation.
Last month, McGregor received a fiery response from internet sensation Liver King after ripping the fitness influencer for his unique lifestyle of eating raw meat and organs. While using one of the Irish icon’s signature phrases, King challenged McGregor to a liver-eating contest while taking the chance to “apologize to absolutely f**king nobody.”
Conor McGregor has indicated a potential comeback is in the works for the first quarter of 2023. Although he does not have an opponent lined up yet, McGregor plans to remind the world of his fighting skills next year.
