CONOR McGREGOR has revealed he is working on his jiu-jitsu ahead of a return to the octagon.

The UFC superstar, 34, has not fought since his sickening leg break in the July 2021 defeat to Dustin Poirier.

It has been a long road back for the Irishman, but he is currently in the final stages of his recovery.

And he has been training hard as he gets himself ready to compete again.

Speaking on Instagram, he said: “SBG Jiu Jitsu. The goal is position, and to hit nothing but skull and gut.

“My g’n’p accuracy stat must be in the high 90 per cents.

“I can’t recall missing one grounded strike from any grounded position ever in a fight.

“Cruising along nicely, steady wins the race ☘️❤️.”

McGregor also shared a picture of himself on the school run with wife Dee and kids.

And he added: “The school run is some buzz 😂❤️.”

McGregor recently unveiled a clean shaved look as fans were left gobsmacked by just how different he appears.

But it will still be a few months until we see the Dublin fighter in the familiar climes of the UFC octagon.

McGregor claimed last month he is planning to make his comeback in the early part of next year.

He said on Instagram Live: “I’m going to be back soon, hopefully. Early 2023 I’m aiming for. Sometime in that first quarter.”

McGregor, 34, is currently in the Dominican Republic filming his scenes for Hollywood remake Road House.

And he plans to jump straight back into training after he finishes his filming obligations.

He added: “That will give me a good couple of months [to prepare].

“Once I wrap this up in a couple of days, get the camp going [for] a good couple of months. And get going.”

But, despite what he is saying, he won’t be back until April at the earliest as he is currently out of the United States Anti-Doping Agency’s testing pool and has yet to be tested this year.

USADA requires UFC fighters to be enrolled in their year-round testing programme in order to compete in the octagon.
