Conor McGregor dubs himself a 'brick wall' after jacked UFC legend shows off insane body transformation ahead of return

CONOR MCGREGOR has dubbed himself 'a brick wall' following his dramatic body transformation over the last five months.

The UFC's poster boy has been smashing the weights between his rehabilitation sessions for his broken leg.




The normally lean and mean Notorious has packed on plenty of muscle during his hiatus from the octagon.

And in a recent interaction with one of his fans, the Irishman dubbed himself a 'brick wall.'

When asked by a fan if his head had been photoshopped onto his body, McGregor tweeted: "No.

"I’m just that much of a brick wall that I’m camouflaged with the brick wall in the back."

Earlier this month, MMA mogul McGregor revealed his constant pumping of the iron has seen him balloon up to a whopping 190lbs (86kg).

He tweeted: "190lbs of granite."

McGregor, 33, is currently on the sidelines recovering from the horrific broken leg he suffered in his July trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

The Irishman has made a faster than expected recovery from the nasty injury, which saw him lose his Sin City series decider with The Diamond.

His manager – Paradigm Sports Management chief Auddie Attar – recently told Sunsport: "He's ahead of schedule.

"We not only just got our x-ray results [back], [we got] our ultrasound results and CT scan results.

"And when I look at the view of the x-ray myself, it's healing so beautifully.

"He's only 10-and-a-half weeks out of surgery and he's walking.

"And he's actually doing s**t that we don't want him to do like throwing the first pitch at the Cubs game."

Former two-division champ McGregor is itching to get back inside the octagon next summer and is targeting an April return to sparring.

During a recent late-night Twitter Q&A, he told fans: "The fibula is fully healed.

"The medial side of the tibia is developing nice callous also.

"It is just patience now for it to form down through the bone to the lateral side of the tibia where the larger break occurred.

"It’s getting there. Patience will win this race for me!"

He later said: “I will be full mixed martial arts sparring by April. Easily!

"By then a return will be imminent. But I must be patient. I will beat this!"
