Conor McGregor Shows Off Physique, Shares Workout In Recent Update

Conor McGregor continues to prepare for a return to UFC.

When Will Conor McGregor return to UFC and what weight class will it be in? These are questions that have been floating around the sport since the beginning of 2022. This could be the year that McGregor fights again but the weight class, that is anyone’s guess. McGregor recently shared a workout and physique update where he is looking bigger than usual.

McGregor suffered a broken leg during his last fight against Dustin Poirier. He seems to be recovering from the injury and is getting his speed and strength back. There have been rumors of McGregor moving up in weight class and that could be the case after he shows off some walking around 190 pounds.

“Little post paddy’s day workout in me ma’s kitchen haha St. Practice day and Proper Twelve is everyday for me!
Get it into ya’s, two sugars need nunya’s”

The workout consisted of deadlifts, dumbbell bench presses, and bicep curls with a bar. Conor McGregor says in the caption that he did this post-holiday workout in his mother’s kitchen. This would not be surprising given the work ethic of McGregor in the past. It would also make sense why he has been able to pack on so much muscle.

If the former champion is indeed 190 pounds walking around, it is unlikely that he will cut down to lightweight status of 155. If anything, McGregor will be able to make it down to 170 and compete in welterweight. If this happens, Kamaru Usman could be on his radar since we know that McGregor always goes big.

It would be interesting to see if this is something that UFC would want. McGregor has lost three of his previous four fights dating back to 2018, including two in a row to Poirier. McGregor continues to be one of the biggest draws in the sport given his history and controversial nature.

At this time, he is not fighting and it would be surprising to see him in the ring before summer ends. This year, 2022, has been the one teased for a return and it could still be in the cards. We have seen that Conor McGregor is working hard to make his return and he is looking massive doing so.
