McGregor weighs staggering amount more than first fight after heavyweight bulk

Conor McGregor now weighs a staggering amount more than his first ever UFC fight after his 'heavyweight' bulking in the gym.

The Irish mixed-martial artist has shown off his physique in a number of recent social media posts as he steps up his recovery from injury.

McGregor is now eyeing a return to the ring in 2022 to complete his comeback from the broken leg he suffered in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 back in April.

In addition to the difference between his first fight weight, McGregor currently weighs more than Logan Paul did for his fight with Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor made his UFC debut back in April 2013 in Stockholm as he beat Marcus Brimage via a first-round technical knockout.

This also earned him the knockout of the night and an additional $60,000 in prize money.

He fought Brimage at featherweight, weighing in at 135lbs and bragged after the fight that “I’m the mental champ."

However, the 33-year-old now weighs a staggering 65lbs more, eight years on from his UFC debut.

Who should Conor McGregor fight on his UFC comeback? Let us know in the comments section below.

McGregor has posted a number of pictures to social media showing off his bulked-up body transformation having returned to the gym.

He claims to now weigh 190lbs, captioning a recent post: “190lbs of granite."

This is heavier than what Paul weighed in at for his exhibition bout against Mayweather back in June of this year.

The YouTuber turned boxer fought at 189.5lbs in the fight in which no winner was declared.
