Going overboard at a sparring session typically isn’t welcomed but, Irish sports star, Conor McGregor, has a lot to prove after suffering through a catastrophic leg break against Poirier last year.
With regard to the fractured leg he suffered in his trilogy match against Dustin Poirier in July 2021, Conor McGregor has been undergoing therapy. Many videos of McGregor sparring have been uploaded online recently. He looks to be nearing the end of his rehabilitation.
Over the last several years, McGregor has gained notoriety for running his own camps and training regimens. Unlike team gyms like American Top Team, where UFC athletes like Poirier and Jorge Masvidal train, he has found individual training partners to spar with.
After a video of the Irishman rocking one of his sparring partners with his left hand appeared online, many started to wonder when McGregor will compete again.
Paulo Costa has attacked Conor McGregor for using “punching bags” rather than sparring partners. According to Costa, the people are only there to take the blows rather than contribute to any improvement.
Conor McGregor is aiming for welterweight. He says his return will be the “greatest in sports history.”
Recently, McGregor tweeted the hashtag “#AskNotorious,” inviting followers to pose various queries to him. The Irishman was asked how “legendary” his return to the MMA sport would be.
McGregor responded: “The greatest comeback in sports history.”
Since his injuries in July 2021, McGregor has become very muscular. With that, it seems he intends to make a welterweight comeback rather than a lightweight one.
One fan asked McGregor about what excites him about competing at 170 pounds with the hashtag ‘#AskNotorious’. The Irishman’s reply was:
“I’m excited to put on clinics. They’ve seen half a page of my dossier.”
McGregor’s manager confirmed that the comeback is in the plans and won’t be derailed by his movie starring venture.
