Ever since he has healed from his leg injury, ‘The Notorious‘ has been regularly posting his workout videos on social media. He shared a new video on Instagram where he was seen showing his incredible core strength. Under the video, the former champion wrote, “Core work on the @mcgregorfast. The Truth!”

The Mac Life posted McGregor’s video with a caption that said, “The return. 2022.”

Further, the 22-6-0 record holder has been looking massive in his recent pictures. Thus, it seems like he has made a lot of changes in his workout and diet. So it would be exciting to see how the 33-year-old performs after his return. As of now, McGregor has two back-to-back losses against Poirier.

While McGregor seems pumped up for his return, it is still not clear whom he will be facing in the octagon. The fighter surely has some good options on the table. Another fight against his arch-rivals, Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier, could be a possibility. A fight against Tony Ferguson would be a big one.

Further, Michael Chandler seems interested in a bout against him. Besides this, it is quite possible that fans could also see McGregor fight against Charles Oliveira for the title. However, if he does bag the title fight, many UFC fans, especially Justin Gaethje fans, would be disappointed.
