Conor McGregor Shows Off His Incredible Physique After Claims He's 'Fit To Fight' At UFC 249

Conor McGregor Shows Off His Incredible Physique After Claims He's 'Fit To Fight' At UFC 249

Conor McGregor has backed up claims that he is 'fit to fight right now' by showing off his incredible physique on social media.

McGregor's declaration came days after rival Khabib Nurmagomedov announced he was pulling out of the UFC 249 main event against Tony Ferguson due to being stranded in Russia.

The 31-year-old took to Instagram and posted a story of himself looking absolutely shredded before giving a cheeky wink to the camera.

No opponent for Ferguson has been set yet with UFC president Dana White also still searching for a new venue.

'The Notorious' is unlikely to be that man due to his passionate pleas for Ireland to take the coronavirus lockdown seriously.

Nevertheless, he took to Twitter on Thursday evening and stated he is in shape to fight 'right now'.

He then proceeded to take a jab at Khabib and Ferguson, claiming the duo were playing a game of chicken on the way to a fifth cancellation.

Khabib, however, spoke to ESPN on Thursday evening to discuss the drama surrounding UFC 249 and managed to get some shots in at 'Mystic Mac'.

The lightweight champion told Brett Okamoto that he could have made 'five times' as much money in a rematch with McGregor, but he wanted to face Ferguson instead.

"UFC tried to make [a McGregor rematch]. I tell them, 'This guy don't deserve it. Bye-bye.' I can make with this chicken five times more money than with Tony Ferguson, and you know most people, they don't know about Tony Ferguson.

"A lot of people want to watch name versus name. This is not about skills versus skills. Very small people understand this."

Who do you think will be Ferguson's opponent on April 18?
