'Super Jacked Conor McGregor Will Be Visited By USADA Real Soon'
| Last updated
Conor McGregor has been told the U.S Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) will be paying him a visit 'real soon' amid his remarkable body transformation.
McGregor has bulked up as he recovers from his broken leg that he suffered in his last outing against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
His trainer has claimed the 33-year-old has packed on an incredible two-and-a-half stone (34lbs) of muscle in just a six-month period.
The UFC star's new physique has got the MMA community talking, with Joe Rogan offering his thoughts on the fighter's transformation.
The UFC commentator has called the picture of the 'super jacked' McGregor 'weird' and believes drug testers will be visiting him 'real soon'.
Speaking on his podcast via Bloody Elbow, he said: "That’s him now, super jacked.
"USADA is going to take a visit to him real soon. It’s a weird picture.
"He’s definitely jacked but it looks to me he’s in the middle of lifting. If you see a guy's body in the middle of lifting it’s a little deceptive.
"He still looks great," he added.
McGregor, meanwhile, is on a two-fight losing skid having lost back-to-back matches to Poirier.
He's hoping to make his Octagon comeback next summer, with Dana White teasing a blockbuster trilogy bout against Nate Diaz.
The UFC president said: "I don't want to get into all that. I say this to you guys all the time: I'm in the fight business.
"By contract, I have to offer these guys three fights per year, and they can say yes or no.
"We're working it out. The trilogy with McGregor is always there.
"That fight could happen. We could make that fight."
Despite being on the sidelines, the Irishman has been relentlessly called out as he plans another comeback.
