McGregor (22-6 MMA) suffered a nasty leg injury during his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier last month at UFC 264. Due to fractures in both his tibia and fibula, the Irishman had to undergo surgery.
“I kicked the knee a few times, so I had multiple stress fractures in the shin bone above the ankle.” – Conor McGregor previously said of his injury.

And the doctor said it is ‘unbreakable’. So once I build back the, well first of all, I need to manage the incision. The cut. You know, make sure it doesn’t get infected. Keep the health on it. Keep building back that way.”

And then I’ve got an unbreakable titanium leg. I’m like, I was talking to my physiotherapist, who was with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and I was saying I am like Arnie in Terminator 2. You know what I mean? This is how I cruise around the Cali streets haha.”
