Conor McGregor is being bombarded with steroid allegations and memes after recent Instagram post. 

Whether McGregor is actively fighting or not, he always seems to be in the MMA headlines. ‘The Notorious’ last fought in July 2021, where he lost his second consecutive fight to Dustin Poirier and suffered a broken fibula and tibia. Since then, the former two-division UFC champion has been filming a Road House remake with Jake Gyllenhaal while rehabbing his left leg. 

McGregor updated fans by posting a picture on Instagram at SBG Ireland after training with wrestling coach Sergey Pikulskiy. Someone then reposted the photo on Twitter with the caption:

“This man has to atleast be 200-220 right now.”

‘The Notorious’ responded by saying:

“265 in the bank. #superheavy”

Fans stormed the comment section with various responses, including steroid accusations saying:

“Are you on the secret juice Mickey Mac”

“yeah you shouldn’t have admitted that. 265? steroids 100%”

“Usada be like”

“No wonder you’re not in the testing pool”

“them roids work perfectly on ya”

Steroid allegations in combat sports are rampant, regardless of whether there is any reasoning. That said, the MMA community has a solid reason to be suspicious of McGregor. ‘The Notorious’ is currently not in the USADA testing pool, which UFC president Dana White has confirmed. The 34-year-old Dublin native will need to be drug tested for six months before being eligible to fight, leading to concerns about his projected return in early 2023. 

Conor McGregor shaves his beard, says ‘f**k all yous’ to the haters

Conor McGregor’s beard is one of the several features that make him recognizable. Therefore, fans seemed shocked when McGregor shaved his beard off. It’s unclear whether he shaved it off because of the Road House movie. Nonetheless, some fans didn’t like the new look and let ‘The Notorious’ know on social media. The former two-division UFC champion responded with an Instagram picture of his face covered and the caption saying:
“F**k all yous talking bad about my beard ya’s’ll do nothin. @roadhousepv”

McGregor’s return to MMA is infinitely more intriguing than the beard change. He still has to be tested by USADA for six months, but ‘The Notorious’ is expected to return in the first half of 2023. The Dublin-born fighter is likely to return at 170 pounds. Some opponents being considered are Michael Chandler, Justin Gaethje, Jorge Masvidal, and Tony Ferguson.
