It’s been over three years since Conor McGregor last stepped foot in the Octagon, but he knows how to train for big fights, and he appears to be back in fighting shape.
McGregor’s last UFC bout took place in November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez. He’s set to square off against Donald Cerrone on Jan. 18, in what looks to be one of the most anticipated fights of the past year. It’s unclear exactly how McGregor will look, or what his endurance will look like, but he’s apparently doing whatever it takes to get back to form.
McGregor recently had his last heavy spar session earlier in the week, and he posted a photo of it. In it, he looks absolutely ripped — just check out those shoulders.
He also posted this photo, showing off his muscular physique.
His coach had some high praise about how he’s been looking as well.
The big fight is roughly two weeks away, and we can’t wait.
