CONOR McGREGOR’s coach John Kavanagh suggested a move to middleweight after the retired UFC star showed off his INCREDIBLE physique.
The Notorious called time on his career inside the Octagon last month but has clearly remained in top notch shape.
And Straight Blast Gym founder Kavanagh hinted at making a move up to the 180lb division should he return to action.
McGregor posted a photo of himself looking jacked with the caption ‘Big Poppa Pump energy’ – a reference to former WWE star Scott Steiner.
And Kavanagh replied underneath the post saying: “Skip 170 straight to 185?”
McGregor made his long awaited return to the UFC earlier this year when he took on Donald Cerrone back in January at welterweight.
The Dubliner looked back to his best as he destroyed the veteran American in just 40 seconds in a devastating display.
It was the third time McGregor had fought at welterweight during his UFC career, after two bouts against Nate Diaz.
He previously claimed world titles at the featherweight and lightweight divisions and had repeatedly hinted at making a push for the welterweight crown.
However, having had no fights booked since the Cerrone showdown in January, McGregor announced his retirement from the UFC last month.
It’s the third time in recent years the Dubliner has announced a retirement from the UFC – with some fans questioning if its for real this time.
But Kavanagh said last week that he believes it was and that he ‘can’t do s**t’ to convince McGregor to come back to the Octagon.
He said: “Is Conor retired? Yes, he is as far as I can tell. That’s what he said, isn’t it?
“I can’t convince Conor to do s**t. Conor will tell Conor what he’s gonna do.
“And who knows? Who knows what’s gonna happen in the future. But, as for now, he’s retired.”
