McGregor continues to inch closer to a UFC return after a long hiatus. He hasn’t appeared in the Octagon since a doctor’s stoppage loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 last year.
McGregor continues to workout hard in the gym ahead of his potential fighting return. He’s teased a move to welterweight and won’t have a shortage of opponents interested in a fight with him.
As McGregor continues his comeback efforts, he’s been active on social media both on Twitter and Instagram. He’s showcased clips of his training regimen and started Twitter beef with old rivals such as Nate Diaz and Poirier.
McGregor has continuously warned the UFC roster of his impending return, though his latest warning might be the strangest yet.
