It has been just six days since Conor McGregor fought a grueling 5-round war against Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC 202. McGregor, who ultimately was awarded a majority decision win, was filmed backstage after the fight on crutches.

When the official medical reports were released following the event, they revealed that McGregor could be sidelined for 6 months if he doesn’t get his left ankle cleared by an orthopedist.

Despite that, McGregor is already back in the gym training with Jiu-Jitsu ace Dillon Danis, who was a staple of McGregor’s UFC 202 camp.

When asked what the pair were focusing on in the gym so soon after the fight, SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh responded with the following:

While there has been no word yet as to when McGregor will return to the Octagon, UFC President Dana White has stated that it’s time for McGregor to defend his featherweight title against interim featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

With that being said, McGregor has remained noncommittal about his return to featherweight, stating that his next fight will likely be at 155.
