Conor McGregor reveals injury woe as he vows to 'push on' ahead of UFC return
CONOR McGREGOR has revealed his latest injury woe – but has vowed to "push on" ahead of his eagerly-anticipated UFC return.
The Irish star, 30, showed off his bandaged left hand to his 31 million Instagram followers as he aims to get back in the octagon.
McGregor suggested he sustained the injury during "intense training" as he works towards a monumental rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov after his October defeat.
Taking to Instagram, Notorious revealed: “Intense training and sparring sessions, I will always push it to the limits.
“This [bandage] comes off and I push on! The Proper Don! Nothing will stop me."
McGregor was evidently in determined mood as he aims to get his own back on Khabib, recently saying the “war” is not over.
Notorious claimed: “Trust me when I tell you, this war is not over. If this fight does not happen again, if it does not get reset, it’s on them.
“They’re running away, I’m here for the fight, here for the rematch.
"I know the errors, I know lapses in commitment I’ve had, I know with my mindset, there was a lot of external things…
"Obviously the injury itself, I had to half my work. I couldn’t road-run anymore, my weight was too high…
"So when you’re cutting weight – if I can’t get my weight down because of injuries I have a more intense weight cut.
“So I was severely dehydrated, I didn’t sleep for 48 hours before the weight cut.
"But these are just all nonsensical excuses that I don’t give a f*** about.
“I don’t give a s***, that’s why I walked in there hands down, ding-ding-ding and walked forward to him and he went running away around the cage.
“He got lucky with that over-hand right, dropped me, well he didn’t really drop me, I landed on my hand but kept my vision, my vision was clear.
“After landing a significant shot, let’s fight now, instead, he was afraid and grans a hold of the legs."
