Following a successful surgery, McGregor seems motivated to make a full recovery. However, that hasn’t stopped the Irishman from going out and enjoying himself.

The 33-year-old has been living in his Las Vegas mansion ever since the surgery, having a ball of a time in Hollywood. Apart from promoting his own brand of liquor, Conor McGregor has been meeting up with several celebrities, including rapper 2 Chainz and known friend Justin Bieber.

However, it seems like all the partying and moving around recently caught up with him. A close friend of the rapper Drake, McGregor took to Instagram to congratulate him on his latest album release. He also mentioned attending a listening party for the same in West Hollywood.


While McGregor certainly arrived at the location, it seems like he wasn’t there for too long. According to TMZ, McGregor was with his managers and had to leave because of excruciating pain in his leg. The pain reportedly caused him to pass out in the back seat.

Although McGregor seems on track in terms of recovery. One cannot help think that it would be wiser for McGregor to restrict his movement. A leg break is one of the most gruesome injuries in the sport, often rendering the fighters to just a shell of their former selves.

If Conor McGregor plans on making a serious comeback, the Irishman will have to dial down the partying and solely focus on coming back stronger.

When will Conor McGregor fight Dustin Poirier again?

Although Dustin Poirier has technically won the trilogy between him and McGregor, the manner in which the third fight ended has left a bitter taste in everyone’s mouth.

And even though McGregor began demanding a rematch immediately after breaking his leg, we cannot be sure if and when the two will meet inside the octagon once again.

If Poirier cannot capture the championship, one can imagine the UFC easily booking the fourth fight between the two. However, if Poirier becomes the champion, it will make it very hard for the UFC to justify giving McGregor a title shot after two consecutive losses.
