Although Conor McGregor is yet to announce who he’s going to fight next, his social media has been flooded with pictures of himself training.
Of course the UFC legend has to stay in shape and keep himself fit but it’s really about time now he let us know who he’s going to go toe-to-toe with in the Octagon.
It’s no wonder his training pictures are filled with frustrated fans pestering McGregor with the question, as they’re just desperate to see him fight again.
However, his latest snap has got everyone talking about something completely different.
Late last night, March 29, the MMA fighter posted a photo of himself onto his social media accounts looking rather sweaty at a training session. wearing only his iconic green fighting shorts.
The picture was simply captioned with a bicep emoji followed by the Irish flag:
While some fans made snarky comments about McGregor lacking an opponent to fight, the majority of people were simply taken aback by his, erm, bulge.
One tweeter couldn’t contain herself exclaiming ‘fookin hot’ while another user questioned ‘is it hot in here or is it just you?’:

Is it hot in here, or is it just you?

It seems another of McGregor’s fans couldn’t hold herself back either, tweeting:
Dear lord, I’m gonna need a cold shower now.
Dear lord I’m gonna need a cold shower ? now ??

This isn’t even the first time McGregor’s bulge has caught the eye of the world – who can forgot the weigh-in for the huge Floyd Mayweather fight.
Stripping off to just their boxers in front of a cheering audience, the two fighters stepped up to the scales before they embarked on their Las Vegas ‘super-fight’.
The crowds only got louder when they saw Mayweather react rather accordingly to McGregor’s quite noticeable bulge.
The boxer wasn’t the only one who found it hard to not look at what was happening downstairs on McGregor.
One Twitter user, by the name of Samantha LaMagna took to Twitter to ask if she was alone in noticing:
Is it just me or does Conor McGregor have a pretty obvious boner during this weigh-in?

Another tweeted to ask a similar question:
Did Conor McGregor just pop a boner talking to Mayweather????

For a reminder of the pair’s rivalry, check out the video below:

Their competitiveness is still going strong as they continue to tease each other on social media.
Only last month, Mayweather posted a photoshopped image of himself fighting a rather bloodied McGregor in the ring.
Although the boxer is retired, he teased a possible return to combat sports on his Facebook page, this time with an eye for UFC.
The photo was captioned with:
Certified killa vs. certified b**ch
Of course the Irishman wasn’t going to sit back and take Mayweather’s taunts, so he quickly replied by posting a photo of himself beating Nate Diaz in a 2016 rematch.
The snap was simply captioned:
A real elbow in a real fight.
His post must have hurt – for both Diaz and Mayweather.
Hopefully it won’t be long until we see McGregor fighting again!
