Conor McGregor has not been fighting since July last year when he broke his leg against rival Dustin Poirier. At the moment the Irishman is shooting a movie with Jake Gyllenhaal, however, in a recent Tweet, the Irishman claims that when the movie is released, he will have fought several times to the octagon.

“I’m feeling crazy confident. Calm. Disattached from emotion. Aware of what I must do and making it happen. Visualizing. I see it all. Clear. This movie wraps, I’m back. I’ll have multiple fights completed by the time this movie even releases.”

Conor McGregor gives advice to Volkanivski

As a featherweight champion back in November 2016, Conor McGregor won the UFC lightweight title over Eddie Alvarez with a second-round TKO. Now it looks like reigning featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski is about to follow McGregor’s path to move up to lightweight to challenge Islam Makhachev for the belt.

While on Twitter, the Irishman gave “Volk” a piece of advice ahead of the potential title bout.

“I was in your exact spot one time don’t forget. 145 coming up. Good luck. I’d say go heavier. Rugby days. Be a bowling ball. That’s how I’d do it as you. Your conditioning right now as I see it, I don’t know. But bowling ball style for you your best chance,” McGregor wrote.
