McGregor, 34, a former undisputed lightweight and featherweight champion under the banner of the UFC, has been sidelined from active competition since headlining UFC 264 back in July 2021, suffering a fractured left tibia and fibula in a first round doctor’s stoppage TKO loss to Dustin Poirier

The Crumlin native returned to Las Vegas, Nevada for the first time since suffering his leg injury two years ago back in February of this year, filming The Ultimate Fighter 31 as an opposing coach against the above-mentioned lightweight contender, Chandler.

Conor McGregor admits he thought his career was over at UFC 264

Set to feature in the release of a new episodic documentary on Netflix, titled ‘McGregor Forever’ in May – McGregor claims he will never hang up his gloves from mixed martial arts, having claimed previously that he was under the impression his career was over after fracturing his leg against Poirier.

“I thought it was over, as well,” Conor McGregor said of his career during a snippet of ‘McGregor Forever’. “That’s why I flipped into a different mold. Now it’s the adrenaline as well, and I wouldn’t know –  I would have calmed down, and part of me’s thinking, ‘Jesus, imagine if it’s just been taken from me like that.’ I would go into – I would be a different person.”
