Conor McGregor’s amazing body transformation, from his UFC debut in 2011 as a featherweight to tipping scales at 170lb

CONOR MCGREGOR is bigger than ever – and we’re not talking about his popularity

Notorious, 33, is continuing his rehab from a horror leg break that forced him to concede defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 back in July.

Conor McGregor’s weight changes through the years

And while he’s building up the strength in that damaged limb, he’s clearly not neglecting his upper body either.

The MMA bad boy appears more hench than ever and is clearly heavier than the 170lb he weighed against The Diamond.

When the Irishman made his debut in the UFC, he wasn’t anywhere near the imposing figure he is today.

And he certainly looked a lot paler and didn’t have as many tattoos.

Fighting in a featherweight bout against Marcus Brimage, he weighed in at around 140 pounds.

It was the beginning of the dynasty – a 67 second first round TKO.

As Conor began to assert his name on the division, he started packing more muscle.

Four years later, he fought Brazilian Jose Aldo and gained around five pounds to jump to 145 pounds.

It didn’t affect his speed, as a left-hook after just 13 seconds ended the fight.

McGregor went up a division to lightweight a year after destroying Aldo.

He took on Eddie Alvarez and gained 10 pounds to weigh-in at a reasonable 155 pounds.

The then featherweight champion defeated the lightweight champion by TKO in round two.

In the main event at UFC 202, McGregor took on fierce rival Nate Diaz.

Knowing he needed more weight to be more powerful against El Diablo, he hit the gym and upped his calorie intake.

Astonishingly, within months of fighting Alvarez at 155 pounds he jumped to 168 pounds. McGregor avenged his defeat five months earlier against the Californian in the fight of the year.

After bulking up for the Diaz fight, McGregor set his sights on a different kind of sport.

He took up boxing and fought Floyd Mayweather in a super-welterweight contest.

At the weigh-in he came in at a super-lean 153 pounds for the ‘Money Fight’.

In the 10th round, Mayweather beat Conor by TKO.

After toying with the idea of retirement and taking time to build a business empire, that included a whisky business, McGregor was back in full swing with the UFC.

In 2020, he tipped the scales at his heaviest in the Octagon at 170 pounds when he fought Donald Cerrone.

It was an epic comeback for Conor, who made a statement with a 40-second knockout.

Notorious was back.

McGregor went back down to 156 pounds for a lightweight division trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

He worked relentlessly in the gym to lean himself down, sharing snaps on instagram.

But, it wasn’t to be as he suffered defeat after his leg gave way.

As he steps up his recovery, and eyes up another match with Poirier who he has unfinished business with, McGregor appears to be more muscular than ever.

Wearing a tight top underneath a gilet, his arms are almost popping out of his shirt.

His broad shoulders also seem bigger than ever as he cuts a mean figure, while sitting on top of his £160,000 Bentley Continental GT.

Clearly, he tops the 170 pounds he weighed in his last fight.

But, he will have to slim down
