Recently, McGregor went live on his official Instagram handle and provided good news for the fans. It appears now he can resume his training under a Physical Therapist’s supervision.

The ‘Notorious’ one said, “I am getting great news there, really, really good news. Five weeks and five days I am over the surgery, yeah. And they said to me eight weeks is what it’s gonna take for me to be able to get back on the bike. In five weeks and five days, I am back on the bike. So, we can now train on the bike and that’s, it’s game over now.”

Who will Conor McGregor fight on his UFC return?

Considering the anti-climactic end at UFC 264, McGregor will aim to have a fourth fight against Dustin Poirier on his octagon return. However, Poirier, as the top-ranked fighter, will probably go up against the current UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.

If the ‘Diamond’ wins the title, McGregor would probably need to claim two to three back-to-back victories before he gets a shot at Dustin Poirier. However, anything is possible with Conor McGregor.
