“I’ll be back in no time…” – Conor McGregor gives fresh insight into his road to recovery

Posted by

Conor McGregor has provided some further insight into his road to recovery from the broken leg he suffered against Dustin Poirier.

McGregor, who was defeated via doctor stoppage by Poirier in the pair’s third fight, has not been able to step into the octagon ever since as a consequence of the NASTY leg break he suffered that ultimately ended the fight.

While the Irishman is now back in training and we suspect that his return is not too far away, we still have been given very little insight as to when he will be returning and who he could be fighting when he does.

While neither of those things have been fully clarified, McGregor has revealed that forward steps have been taken towards his return. He told reports during a visit to the Monaco Grand Prix, as quoted by The Sun:

“The body’s doing good. I’m out here with my full team. Obviously I’m enjoying the Monaco Grand Prix then after that we’re going to up the training bit by bit.”

“I should be able to kick now, I have another CT scan in the coming days and then I’ll be clear to kick. Once I can kick and grapple I’ll be back in no time.”

“Boxing training is going well, strength training and that’s all. I’m excited to get back.”

Naturally, we’re keen to see McGregor fight again as soon as possible but would prefer for him to be in 100% condition when he does. For that reason, we shall remain patient – when he’s ready, he’ll be back.
