It has been a busy offseason for McMillan. It began when he contracted COVID-19 and was hospitalized. He lost nearly 30 pounds from the virus but has made significant strides in putting that weight and muscle back on. He defeated the virus and returned to the stage during the Legion Sports Pro. McMillan was not part of the first callout and did not return for the finals.

Cedric McMillan was also scheduled to appear during the Egypt’s KO Pro show but did not make it. He is now expected to take the stage at the Arnold Classic and will do what it takes to be there. McMillan missed the 2021 show in September with an injury. He was present in Columbus but was part of the broadcast team instead of competing on stage. Now, he will have a chance to return to competing against some of the best in the world.
