UFC commentator Joe Rogan has given his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s new physique.
While he may be emerging from back-to-back losses to Dustin Poirier, there’s no denying that Conor McGregor is still in great shape as he continues to prepare for his return to the UFC. The plan appears to be for him to challenge Charles Oliveira for the UFC lightweight title and while that can be a controversial move, it underscores how much of a needle-mover the Irishman really is.
One thing many have taken notice of lately is his incredible physique – which includes Joe Rogan, who had a few things to say about it.

“It’s him now, he’s super jacked.” USADA will be visiting him very soon, ”Rogan said. “It’s a strange picture, honestly. I mean he’s definitely jerked off, but it looks to me like he’s lifting. If you see a guy’s body lifting, it’s a little misleading.
“He’s still jerked off. He always looks great. But when you lift weights, like you do, like these bodybuilders take the stage before these big things from Mr. Olympia, they’re all pumped up… He looks good though.

Rogan is not at all suggesting that McGregor is going to be in trouble if USADA visits him, but what he does is to say, it’s been quite a transformation for him since his broken leg. He’s clearly hungrier than he’s ever been and we’re intrigued to see how that manifests when he walks into the Octagon.
