CONOR McGREGOR is back training with his leg cast OFF just five weeks after surgery as he plots his UFC return.
McGregor suffered a broken tibia seconds before the end of round one in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier in July.
He lost by doctor stoppage and immediately went under the knife in Los Angeles and was expected to be on crutches for six weeks.
But it appears McGregor – who had revealed he was ‘well ahead of schedule’ – has made an even faster recovery.
The former two-weight champion uploaded a video working out on an exercise bike just five days after his latest operation.
McGregor, who beat Poirier in 2014 but was knocked out in the rematch in January, has eyed a FOURTH fight with the American after the unprecedented ending to their trilogy.
But he is already serving a six-month medical suspension, while UFC boss Dana White admitted the Irishman could be sidelined for a YEAR.
McGregor offered his fans an update as he conducted an Instagram Live session.
He said: “Scan went well. Scan went very well. To be back on the bike, I’m back on the bike before he said I was going to be able to bear weight.
“I’m rocking, well ahead of schedule. Let’s keep it going. … It was good news. Good news at the doc’s.
“I think this bone is back together, to be honest. The ankle is feeling great.
“I’ve got me flip-flops on, I have. I’m out of the boot. I’ve got the flip-flops on, so that’s a good sign.
“I’m still jacked as well, bro. It ain’t over. We’re only warming up. Still fresh. Still untouched. You still can’t get me.”
