Conor McGregor Reflects On Then vs. Now

UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor has no problem flaunting his success.

It used to take me 40 buses to get to the gym. Now I take 40 buses to the gym.

On Thursday, McGregor posted a photo to his Instagram of himself with a gym bag surrounded by cars.

“It used to take me 40 buses to get to the gym,” McGregor wrote in his caption. “Now I take 40 buses to the gym.”

McGregor is still training in the gym despite taking a sabbatical from MMA competition. Following his last fight in November, McGregor announced he would be taking a break from the sport due to his girlfriend being pregnant with the couple’s first child.

McGregor is on a two-fight win streak in the UFC. In his last fight, he knocked out then UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to win the lightweight title. At the time, McGregor was the UFC featherweight champion. This made McGregor the first ever fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two UFC titles.

McGregor has since been stripped of the UFC featherweight title due to his lack of title defenses.

There is no official word on when McGregor will fight next. However, during a recent interview, McGregor himself sold via online pay-per-view, McGregor said his next fight may take place in a boxing ring. He said he believes he will fight Floyd “Money” Mayweather in a boxing match at the end of 2017 or in early 2018.
