Conor McGregor Vs Jorge Masvidal: Fans Speculate The 'Notorious' Is Preparing To Fight At 170lbs

Conor McGregor Vs Jorge Masvidal: Fans Speculate The 'Notorious' Is Preparing To Fight At 170lbs

UFC fans are convinced that Conor McGregor is preparing for a showdown with Jorge Masvidal at 170lbs after his latest social media post.

The Irish MMA superstar, 31, announced last month in Moscow that he would end his hiatus from UFC as he eyes up a comeback in 2020.

And McGregor has been getting back into shape and shared an image of his chiseled physique with his 32.4m followers on Instagram.

The 'Notorious' had been training at SBG Naas in his native homeland alongside wrestling coach Sergey Pikulskiy, who has "changed Irish wrestling forever already."

McGregor, who also posted the image on Instagram, has sent fight fans into overdrive on social media over the idea that he is preparing to fight BMF champ Masvidal at 170lbs.

The Irishman said that he wants to make his UFC return in January at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And McGregor, who was defeated by Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018, has intensified his rivalry with Masvidal in recent weeks.

Masvidal, 35, called McGregor out after UFC 244 and vowed to take down that "f*****g midget" in a fight.

McGregor fired back at 'Gamebred' on social media, while Masvidal called for the Irishman to "sign the contract" for their fight.

Masvidal, who defeated Nate Diaz at UFC 244 earlier this month, recently launched a scathing attack on his rival by saying that McGregor is scared to fight him
