Conor McGregor Looks Huge Ahead Of UFC 196 Lightweight Title Fight

Just a few months ago, Conor McGregor looked sick and emaciated in the lead up to his featherweight title fight with Jose Aldo at UFC 194.

Now, Conor is moving up a weight class to challenge 155 lb champion Rafael Dos Anjos and he’s looking huge in these new training pics he posted on Instagram.

Nothing pretty in this game but the pay. #HardMotherFuckingWORK

McGregor finally looks healthy and the added weight should help keep RDA’s takedowns at bay. We’ll see IF the move up was the right move for Conor next month at UFC 196.
