UFC superstar Conor McGregor revealed what he “uses” to jack up outside the octagon.
McGregor has stayed on the sidelines since his last game against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021. Poirier handed him a second straight loss when ‘The Notorious’ suffered a horrible broken leg in the first round. McGregor has had surgery and is in recovery with no concrete timetable for his return yet.
He recently made headlines for a clip he posted online showing off his jacked-up figure while hunched over for the cameras. The video garnered a lot of attention, leading some to suspect that steroids were involved in achieving his new physique.
A user asked McGregor if he was on the juice. tweet: “what are you using I want some of this.”
McGregor came across the question and issued an answer detailing what he took to transform his body. Write“Proper Twelve and Forged Irish Stouts. Served with my own organic Irish beef, served on a hot stone. Tidl spray against pain.”
McGregor landed his first film acting role in the forthcoming reboot of Road House. His new venture in Hollywood raised doubts about his return. According to his manager Tim Simpson, “The Notorious” is recovering well and is still on course for his comeback in 2023.
“It fits perfectly,” Simpson told MMA Junkie at UFC 278 in Salt Lake City. “He’s still on course for a big return next year but this fits in perfectly in the meantime.”
“The leg is still healing,” Simpson said. “I think there’s still a little bit more to do but he’s been training like crazy every day, twice a day. He’s got his full team out there: the McGregor Fast team, all his health and fitness people, physio, boxing, coaching. He’s had a hard time. He’s been training super hard. He’s in amazing shape – just final adjustments to get the leg back where it needs to be.”
Former UFC title challenger Michael Chandler has emerged as the frontrunner to welcome McGregor back to the octagon. Chandler will face Poirier on November 12 at UFC 281 in the promotion’s big return to Madison Square Garden.
Although he had hoped for a matchup with the Irish icon, he is more determined to get another shot at the £155 gold.
“Yeah, I’ve said that many times, too,” Chandler said of Sportskeeda. “You never get your hopes up for a Conor fight. With the mixed martial arts landscape, where Conor is, his last few fights, obviously after a really bad injury, and also that he’s earning the right to choose when and where he fights and how often he fights… he’s I have a lot of options so I didn’t really get too high.
“I didn’t really trust this fight to actually happen, although there was good momentum and there is still good momentum. I still have my goal of becoming world champion.”
