Conor McGregor seen kicking for first time since horror leg break as UFC star continues training ahead of comeback | The Sun

CONOR McGREGOR has been seen kicking for the first time since suffering his horror leg break.

The Irishman posted a video on his Instagram page leathering a heavybag with left leg kicks.


It comes 11 months after he broke his tibia in defeat to Dustin Poirier.

McGregor, who had leg surgery last year, has since been recovering from the gruesome injury.

But his rehabilitation up until this point had all been upper body, with strength and boxing training.

It appears now though that McGregor is nearing the final stages of his recovery having shown off the ability to kick again.

He captioned the video: "Something like a phenomenon!"

McGregor, 33, who has a win and loss over Poirier, 33, faced the American for a third time in July 2021.

But seconds before the end of round one, he suffered the leg break and lost by doctor stoppage.

McGregor has faced several callouts ahead of his return but UFC boss Dana White favours a fight with Michael Chandler, 36.

White told TMZ: "I really like Chandler vs Conor after Chandler's last fight.

"There's plenty of fights to make. I don't know if that's the one. We'll see what the landscape looks like when Conor gets back.

"I'm just saying after his last interview, his last fight, Conor's ranked number 8.

"[Chandler's] ranked number 5. It makes a lot of sense right now."
