UFC commentator Joe Rogan spoke out on a recent episode of his podcast ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ and talked about a viral Instagram post. The post belongs to the Irishman Conor McGregor and has been making rounds on the internet. Chiefly, the image is of Conor McGregor in the gym, where he looks absolutely muscle-bound and jacked.

McGregor is in recovery after suffering a leg injury and he’s been lifting weights in the gym consistently. He looks as jacked as he’s ever looked in the past, and Joe Rogan commented on his muscular physique. Rogan also made a throw-away remark suggesting USADA better coming knocking on McGregor’s front door after seeing the recent post.

“That’s him now, super jacked. USADA is going to take a visit to him real soon. It’s a weird picture. He’s definitely jacked but it looks to me he’s in the middle of lifting. If you see a guys body in the middle of lifting it’s a little deceptive. He still looks great.”

In the same podcast, Joe Rogan also talked about how Conor McGregor is a physical specimen built to succeed in the ring. The conversation was initiated when Rogan looked back at Conor McGregor’s demolition of former featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Rogan went so far as to say that McGregor’s power stems from his well-crafted physique.

“First of all you need to realize it was perfectly placed. The accuracy is impeccable. If you look at Conor’s build, there’s a lot of guys built like that can fu**ing crack. He’s got real wide shoulders, he’s real fast and he’s got real big hands. All those things together. He’s just got that freakish punch.”

Given McGregor’s jacked physique, some fans are projecting that he will return to combat at welterweight. As it stands, it doesn’t seem like Conor McGregor will be able to successfully make the lightweight limit. However, the Irishman is a consummate professional, and he’s always been able to step on the scale responsibly in the past.
