Conor McGregor Admits to Losing Interest in Training

Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor is facing challenges in maintaining his motivation to train for a potential return to the Octagon. McGregor, who last fought in July 2021 against Dustin Poirier, suffered a leg injury in their trilogy match and has since been focused on rehabbing his leg.

Despite his efforts to recover, McGregor has been frustrated by delays in scheduling his comeback fight. McGregor announced on New Year's Eve his intention to return on June 29 against Michael Chandler, but UFC CEO Dana White later refuted this claim. White has since expressed uncertainty about McGregor's return this year, further adding to McGregor's frustration and making it difficult for him to stay focused on training.

"I've got the St. Paddy's Day festivities coming up, and then I'm gonna get back and regroup. I'm gonna test myself physically on the treadmill and go about the McGregor Fast way and get myself right back," McGregor said in an interview with TheMacLife.
"I had a camp in Cannes, the South of France, I had a camp in Dubai where I had world champions training with me where I was hoping for a December date, then a January date. Then it keeps getting pushed back, then I lose interest and stop full training for a while."

McGregor's uncertainty about his return has led to periods where he loses interest in training and admits to drinking more. This unpredictability has left many fans wondering when they might see McGregor back in action.

With a professional record of 22-6, McGregor is looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses to Poirier. Despite these setbacks, McGregor remains a high-profile figure in the sport and is determined to return to the top of the UFC ranks.
