Conor McGregor is in the best shape of his life.

The UFC megastar is seriously stacked as he continues his recovery following his horrific leg snap at UFC 264.

Edging closer to his long-awaited comeback, the Irishman has clearly been hitting the weights and is an absolute unit.

But, and it's a big but, it seems people aren't buying it.

McGregor's latest video posted on social media has sparked a wild PED debate among fans – and it's getting pretty heated.

Despite not fighting in over a year, there's no denying that the former dual-division UFC champion is still in incredible nick.

Showing off his impressive physique, a shirtless McGregor posted a video on Twitter where he flexes into the camera and makes all sorts of weird noises.

"The most power Twitter’s ever seen," the clip's caption read.

But it didn't take long for social media users to call McGregor out, accusing him of using steroids.

One person commented: "The most steroids Twitter has ever seen."

While another added: "Be careful dosing champ... we all know how the juice can affect other parts of the body."

As a third replied: "Fuck USADA."

One fan even asked the MMA icon: "What are you using? I want some of that."

To which McGregor jokingly replied: "Proper Twelve and Forged Irish Stout. Served alongside my own, organically grown, Irish beef, served on a hot stone."

Elsewhere on Twitter, others were saying the same thing, even former UFC champ Henry Cejudo chimed in.

He tweeted: "@TheNotoriousMMA hasn't been tested by USADA in over a year... Meanwhile, I'm eligible to return next month baby!"

That said, not everyone was sold on the idea that McGregor was engaging in performance enhancing drugs.

One supporter defended him, saying: "Genuinely zero signs of PED abuse here. McGregor is always in insane cut shape, it’s weird whenever someone is in incredible condition, people scream steroids."

It was revealed last week that Conor McGregor has not been tested by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) since the third quarter of 2021.

And with his focus now on an upcoming Hollywood movie, along with his many other business ventures, some fans believe the multi-millionaire may already have one foot out the door when it comes to MMA.

"The amount of money I have will run out. The amount of money Conor has, he's good for probably the rest of his life," Sean O'Malley recently said on his podcast.

"I can't imagine him waking up in training camp with five weeks to grind hard kill it. When you have money like he does, you don't give a f**k.

"There's no chance I could be travelling in camp. Always on the yacht, going somewhere, doing something. I can't imagine him just grinding for 12 weeks, but I don't know, I wouldn't be surprised too. If anyone is going to do it, Conor is going to comeback and win. He did look sharp against Poirier at the beginning of that fight."
