Conor McGregor responds to steroid accusations following latest video
| Last updated
Conor McGregor showed off his physique in his latest odd social media post, leading some to accuse the UFC star of steroid use, but he has denied those claims.
McGregor may not have fought in UFC since breaking his leg against Dustin Poirier in July 2021, the first time in his career he's lost back-to-back MMA fights, but that hasn't stopped him being active on social media.
In his latest post he showed off how his body is looking, as a return to the octagon continues to be rumoured, suggesting it was the most powerful he'd been, as you can see in the video below.
Some on social media were not having the new look Irishman though, accusing his body of not being natural and suggesting it was down to steroid abuse.
Fellow former two weight UFC champion Henry Cejudo replied saying, "McGregor hasn't been tested by USADA in over a year...Meanwhile, I'm eligible to return next month baby."
Someone else compared the 34-year-old to Saul Canelo Alvarez, who previously tested positive for a banned substance, saying, "Definitely had a dose of the Canelo roids, gone from Bambi to the Incredible Hulk after a leg break."
"The most steroids we've ever seen," another added.
And a fourth said, "What are you using? I want some of that," which sprung McGregor into a defence of his new body.
"Proper Twelve and Forged Irish Stout. Served alongside my own, organically grown, Irish beef, served on a hot stone.
Tidl spray for pain."
Having a good old look at his body and tensing, before shouting at the camera, gave me less of a feel of a fighter and more Bruce Willis pumping himself up in the mirror in Friends.
Just needs Hasbullah to come out from behind the bed and tell McGregor that he too is a 'neat guy.'
The tiny Russian viral sensation has been one of the men that the UFC star has shared beef with on social media in recent months.
Even Dana White has got involved, warning McGregor about his latest rivalry and told the Irishman to 'watch himself,' if he ever runs into Hasbullah.
McGregor also got into another war of words with long time rival Nate Diaz recently, who he's had two classic fights with in the past.
Diaz won the last fight of his UFC contract against Tony Ferguson, after Khamzat Chimaev missed weight and had to swap opponents, something McGregor wasn't happy with.
Afterwards Diaz hinted at a move into boxing and took a dig at his former opponent's own attempts at the sport, when he lost to Floyd Mayweather.
In return McGregor called for respect from the Stockton brawler, whilst also saying that he'd beat Diaz and would have 'sawed Tony in half.'
