Conor McGregor has posted yet another photo of his jacked physique just 11 days out from his Octagon return, and as you might expect, his “Notorious” fanboys are jumping for joy. There’s even a heated argument in the comments section of his latest Instagram post debating whether or not the Irishman can still be considered UFC “champ.”

Champs wear belts, that’s why they make them, but whatever.

McGregor collides with longtime lightweight contender Donald Cerrone in a bout that will be contested at welterweight because A) cutting weight sucks and B) “Notorious” is planning to fight for the title and doesn’t want to have to do it twice in one year, which sounds funny to me because McGregor hasn’t fought twice in one year since 2016.

Cerrone can put an end to all that disrespectful noise with an upset win in the UFC 246 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, taking place a week from Sat. night (Jan. 18, 2020) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
