Conor McGregor has returned to training full time again. For the first time since being TKO’d by boxing great Floyd Mayweather, the Irishman laces up the gloves and puts in the rounds…

Earlier this year, former two-weight UFC champion Conor McGregor did the unthinkable. Although he didn’t beat Floyd Mayweather in their boxing match, ‘The Notorious’ took steps very few had before him.

Crossing over to the world of professional boxing as he did, McGregor both lined his pockets and paved a path for future stars.

“To be honest, some of the things we’ve come away with from the Mayweather fight, some of the (improvements), when would an MMA guy have a chance to take six months just to focus on one aspect of MMA?” McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh told Daily Star.

“‘Never’ is the answer. They’re always trying to work on everything. But when he does return to the octagon, his hands are going to be a lot better than what they were. And I’m excited to see that.”

Will McGregor Have Improved Boxing?

Yes, he lost, some would say Mayweather actually controlled the entire flow of the fight, but McGregor did focus entirely on boxing for the fight. That being said, it wasn’t boxing for MMA, it was a different world altogether.

Certainly, it will be interesting to see how much McGregor’s hands have improved. For that reason, today’s video is intriguing. Released by “The Mac Life” official Facebook page, McGregor’s first sparring session since the Mayweather fight is a cool watch.

When Will McGregor Return?

Much like the aftermath of his title win over Jose Aldo, fans are wondering when Conor McGregor will defend the title. Since defeating Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight strap in 2016, McGregor has fought only once, and not even in MMA.

According to his old rival ‘Scarface’ Aldo, ‘The Notorious’ should be stripped or forced to defend by the UFC:

Defend or Vacate

“Thank God my division is moving. It would be bad if it was stuck, but my division is moving,” Aldo told MMAFighting.com. “It’s hard, right? Every athlete dreams of becoming champion, fighting for the title, and the guy is holding up the division. But it’s up to the UFC to make the decisions.

“The UFC needs to do what has to be done: you take the belt away or make him defend it. I think everyone is waiting for that.”

“Yes, this time is coming,” Aldo said, “He has to defend it, has to put his belt on the line in order to become champion. He only won the title. For me, Ferguson has great possibilities of becoming champion in the future.”
