Conor McGregor Intense training ahead of UFC 303 return 

The Notorious in videos shared on Instagram can be seen at the peak of his fitness as he prepares to face Michael Chandler. 


Big Mac has been missing from UFC action since the July 9th weekend when he fought his trilogy bout against Dustin Poirier and fractured his left foot. 

As can be seen in the video the Irishman is in its peak fitness and going through an intense fight procedure to be in shape and get ready to mark his blockbuster return to the promotion.  


What to expect from Conor McGregor's return

Conor McGregor in his Netflix documentary had admitted that post his injury against Dustin Poirier, he thought his UFC career was over. 

But after going through intense rehab for nearly three years, the promotion's biggest star is going to make his return to the Octagon against Michael Chandler. 


Chandler will prove to be a tough oponent for Conor on his return, but the Notorious is still favoured to come out on top. If Conor does beat Micheal then there are suggestions that he could take on Islam Makhachev next however that possibility remains highly unlikely.
