UFC superstar McGregor has recently been posting snaps of his bigger and thicker physique to all of his social channels. However, in his latest post, he also revealed the inspirations behind his new look.
Captioning a picture of himself sitting atop a bike with his pecs out and biceps flexed, McGregor wrote, "If Schwarzenegger and Bruce Lee had a mad Irish baby."
And to be honest, it's a fairly accurate description.
What McGregor's size means for his UFC career is yet to be seen. He hasn't fought in the fabled Octagon since July 2021, when he succumbed to a first round defeat during his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier. During that fight, the Notorious broke his tibia, and he's been on the comeback trail ever since.
2023 looks like the most likely date for McGregor's return, and while a bout is far from arranged, he has been linked to several opponents, including Jorge Masvidal, Charles Oliveira as well as a (very) unlikely rematch with his old rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
