Two-time former UFC champion Conor McGregor and Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, are both set to make their returns to their respective sports. McGregor hasn’t entered the octagon since his defeat against Dustin Poirier in their trilogy match back in 2021.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hasn’t made his WWE return since October 2019, when he announced his official retirement. As UFC and WWE announced a merger of 21 billion dollars, The Rock is reportedly set to make his WWE return with none other than McGregor praising the WWE legend.
Conor McGregor reacts to Dwayne Johnson return
The electrifying Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, four years after his official retirement from wrestling, made a jaw-dropping announcement: his epic return to the WWE. Now, numerous celebrities and Hollywood stars have joined hands to celebrate this development.
Amid all the buzz, a known UFC star has also made sure to leave his appreciation for ‘The Rock’s comeback. He is none other than Irish UFC icon Conor McGregor. The duo share a close bond and this time, ‘Notorious’ has returned the favor with a short yet sweet message.
McGregor took to Twitter and reposted the video of Dwayne Johnson’s WWE SmackDown return, commenting “Incredible.” While the tweet may be very short, its impact is significant. McGregor’s use of the word “Incredible” carries the weight of respect, showing the Irishman’s genuine appreciation for ‘The Rock’s’ return to the WWE.
McGregor’s recent footage shows incredible gain
Conor recently got jacked as he went live on his Instagram and flaunted his lean muscle mass gain, saying he weighed in at 265 pounds.
When McGregor defeated Jose Aldo with a 13 seconds knock out, the Irishman weighed in at 155 pounds. So it’s been a lean muscle mass gain of over 100 pounds.
However, there have been multiple speculations regarding Conor taking performance-enhancing drugs during his time off from the UFC. Do you think the Irishman will make his UFC return against Michael Chandler in December at UFC 296, considering McGregor failed to re enter the USADA testing pool on time?
