The former UFC featherweight and lightweight double-champion has restarted training after a leg fracture.


Mixed martial artist Conor McGregor published a video on his Instagram account capturing him training on Sunday for the first time after he broke his tibia in summer.

“Strap yourselves in for the greatest comeback in sports history!”

The fighter has also thanked the doctors for his quick recovery and cited Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous “I’ll be back!”

In another video, McGregor revealed that he was bound to fully get back in shape in two months and will probably return in cage in 2022.

“You think a broke bone stop me? Ho I’ve 3 legs.”

The 33-year-old Irishman’s last fight took place on 10 July 2021 at UFC 264 when he lost to Dustin Poirier via technical knockout.

McGregor has taken part in a total of 28 matches and won 22 of them. In 2021 Forbes called him the world's highest-paid athlete with $180 mln of earnings.
