Conor McGregor Told He Needs To Change His Lifestyle Ahead Of UFC Return Next Year
| Last updated
The first ever UFC fighter to hold titles in different weight divisions at the same time, McGregor quickly ascended into a megastar through his devastating performances and brash, cocky approach.
And while he remains a massive box office attraction and UFC's biggest asset, the Irishman has now lost three of his last four fights inside the Octagon.
His last defeat came in the trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier when he broke his leg in the first round at the T-Mobile Arena.
Many feel as though McGregor's level has dipped and he has lost focus as a result of him becoming a big star.
And Georges St-Pierre, one of the best to ever to it in the UFC, believes McGregor needs to make some adjustments for when he comes back next year.
"Conor McGregor, now his stock is going down," the former welterweight and middleweight champion told Sporf.
"He was very high in the beginning and I'm talking about in terms of, not in terms of money of promotion, in terms of status and in the rankings.
"Now he's, he's going down, his stock is going down.
"There's been a few fights that it's going down a little bit. There is a possibility that he might come back up but I think now things do not go well for him.
"You need to change some of his lifestyle."
McGregor underwent successful surgery following on from his injury and has been keeping fans updated on his rehabilitation.
The 'Notorious' recently shared a picture of himself looking in incredible shape alongside his other half, Dee Devlin on Twitter.

He believes he will be able to return to full MMA sparring in April and then work towards his next fight. McGregor has already expressed an interest in squaring off against Michael Chandler, with the two sharing a pleasant back and forth on Twitter.
