There’s no doubt about it: Conor McGregor is far from undersized for the welterweight division, he looks more ripped than ever.

McGregor, who has competed at featherweight and lightweight most of his career, has only had two bouts at welterweight. As it stand now he holds a 1-1 record at welterweight, and admitted that he was undersized in his debut at that weight class. He has, however, also looked as if struggling to make the featherweight limit, and seems content not to return to that division.

Ahead of his UFC comeback against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, in the main event at UFC 247, McGregor looks ripped and perfectly sized for welterweight. One might think that welterweight is McGregor’s natural weight class judging by his physique.

McGregor’s January 18th return to the UFC octagon is much anticipated. His past UFC fight at UFC 229 broke previous pay-per-view numbers. While it’s hard to speculate regarding UFC 247’s potential to beat those numbers, early indications are positive. UFC 247 sold out just hours after the tickets were released, resulting in an immediate $10 million dollar gate.

A victory is much needed for both fighters, however. McGregor lost to arch rival Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, and hasn’t won a UFC fight since November 2016. Meanwhile, Cerrone has lost his two past fights via T/KO. While he is a fan favourite, he will surely slip further down in the rankings should he fail to secure a victory against McGregor.

Do you think McGregor will continue fighting at welterweight?
