McGregor refutes PED accusations after latest video showing bulging physique

Conor McGregor hasn’t appeared inside the octagon since June last year. Last time he shared a cage with Dustin Poirier in their trilogy and lost due to a leg injury. The 33-year-old had been in recovery and has now fully healed.

Even though he hasn’t competed for over a year, ‘The Notorious’ keeps in touch with fans through his social media, especially Twitter.

Conor McGregor responded to PED use speculation after displaying his ripped body in a social media post. Netizens trolled him for PED use, to which he answered that he maintains his muscular body by consuming copious amounts of his beberages.

Former UFC champ posted a video of his shredded body, flexing his muscles.

The Notorious One posted this video with a caption saying,
‘The most power twitter’s ever seen.’ Many Fans and fellow UFC fighters might not like Conor McGregor’s body. They provided some harsh replies to Conor.

Former MMA champion Henry Cjudo wrote,
“McGregor hasn’t been tested by USADA in over a year…Meanwhile, I’m eligible to return next month baby.”

The blogger Matt Marenic asked McGregor in a comment on Twitter. He asked,
“What are you using? I want some of that.”

Conor McGregor, who was always an aggressor on social media, got annoyed by his comment and replied with a brief description of his diet.

This isn’t the first time McGregor is facing PED use rumors. For one, McGregor appears to be absent from the USADA pool – ie he isn’t tested for PEDs and hasn’t been tested at all this year.

McGregor  is likely ‘retired’  from the USADA pool. In reality, retiring means withdrawing from the USADA pool which has its advantages – for one you’d be free to take whatever you want and recover from injuries.

But while we’re all more or less aware that McGregor is now tripled in size – many of us haven’t noticed some tell tale signs of PED abuse.

McGregor’s hair is often scrutinized with the Irish Sports star showing thinning hair on the crown of his head in addition to the new thinning hairline.

While the loss of hair isn’t necessarily very damning – and goes along with aging most of the time the suspicious looking stomach bumps might be something worth a 2nd look.

Conor McGregor is working hard for his comeback which is likely to happen sometime in 2023. It’s very interesting to see McGregor absent from the USADA pool considering his bulk this year.
