“The Notorious” will have his chance to realize his dreams of becoming the first two-weight UFC world champion that holds two division’s titles simultaneously.
The task at hand is no walk in the park as the Irish superstar will face Eddie Alvarez for his lightweight strap in the main event of a stacked UFC 205 card.
With just a little over two weeks out from their fight set to take place on November 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York, some fans with a watchful eye questioned if McGregor is healthy going into the historic fight and if he will be ready to perform at his best.
In McGregor’s “The Mac Life” video released on Tuesday, “The Notorious” goes to do a Dexa scan to measure his body fat. While walking to get his scan done, it appears that the featherweight champion has a slight limp at certain points while making the short walk in the hallway (at 0:21 of the video).
Back in August, Conor McGregor had to walk backstage on crutches after his five-round UFC 202 war with Nate Diaz. McGregor was also seen limping heavily after the fight at a post-fight pool party in Las Vegas.
UFC President Dana White mentioned after McGregor and Diaz fought at UFC 202 that Conor injured his foot in the fight. McGregor stated that it was actually his shin and not his foot that was sore after the fight. However, McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh stated a few days after UFC 202 that “The Notorious” would be “100% in 1 week.”
Do you think Conor McGregor is healthy and ready for the historic fight against Eddie Alvarez coming up on November 12? Or do you think that the fight is coming too soon for “The Notorious” after his war with Nate Diaz? Sound off in the comment section!
