McGregor has just begun training again and was recently caught on camera hitting pads at the Crumlin boxing gym ahead of his eagerly anticipated comeback fight.

The 33-year-old has been angling for a title shot on his return despite the fact he has lost two consecutive fights. McGregor first made a play for Charles Oliveira’s lightweight title but has recently turned his attention to the welterweight king, Kamaru Usman. However, ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ is expected to face Leon Edwards this summer meaning McGregor will have to wait or take an interim fight before he gets a shot at UFC gold again.
