Conor McGregor has been out of action for over a year since his infamous bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov ended in an all-out brawl. Following that incident, McGregor flirted with retirement while teasing fights with various opponents.
But now, McGregor is finally just three weeks out from his return to mixed martial arts against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone at UFC 246 in Las Vegas. "The Notorious MMA" decided to update the world on Instagram as to his condition leading up to the big day, and to put it frankly, he looks jacked.
As you can tell, McGregor is taking this comeback very seriously. Considering he wants a rematch with Nurmagamedov, he'd better. So far, so good.
Prior to his submission loss to the UFC lightweight champion, McGregor defeated Nate Diaz by unanimous decision back at UFC 206 in the 170-pound welterweight division.
The January fight with Cerrone is likewise at 170. And in that IG photo, he looks every bit of it (and more, to be fair).
Cerrone, on the other hand, is currently on a two-fight losing streak after being TKO'ed by Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje, respectively. "Cowboy" looks to play the role of spoiler to McGregor's 2020 goals and take advantage of his cage-rust by making full use of his reach advantage and kickboxing skill.
Conor McGregor is ready. Donald Cerrone is ready. Here. We. Go.
