Conor McGregor has shown off his impressive new physique on social media, as the Irishman continues his recovery from a horrific leg break earlier this year.
After losing to fellow UFC star Dustin Poirier back in July, with a doctor stepping in to end the fight early, the 33-year-old is now targeting a charity comeback fight in December.
However, after seeing his new physique pictures, it looks like McGregor will have to do a fair bit of weight cutting before he does re-enter the octagon.
In fairness to the former UFC Welterweight champion, he is rumoured to be competing in a charity wheelchair boxing match - the exact details of which are yet to be announced.

McGregor, Ireland's first UFC champion, is seemingly on course to return to the octagon next summer.
Mystic Mac's manager, Paradigm Sports Management chief Audie Attar, recently explained to SunSport that his recovery is going better than expected, claiming: "He's ahead of schedule."
"We not only just got our X-ray results [back], [we got] our ultrasound results and CT scan results.
"And when I look at the view of the X-ray myself, it's healing so beautifully. He's only 10-and-a-half weeks out of surgery and he's walking.
"And he's actually doing s*** that we don't want him to do like throwing the first pitch at the Cubs game."
"He's so competitive, man. He's like, I'm not thinking about the UFC." Attar added.
"'Whatever. I'm not thinking about fighting. But I'm gonna get back there.'
"So if the first pitch is any indication of what may happen, God willing, the healing process continues on a straight path, he's gonna come out there and want to continue to compete.
"Because he wants to leave on his own terms. Not on the terms that he's been dealt in his last fight."
Whether we actually do get to see McGregor back in the octagon remains to be seen, as his last defeat to Poirier was a punishing one.
Another possible option for the brawler could be a boxing match with former vlogger Jake Paul, who is still targeting an eventual bout with McGregor.
The American first has to get past Brit Tommy Fury, with the pair scheduled to fight later this year.
