“I will isolate myself, I will stay away from the pub (…) I will dedicate myself to my job 100%. It will be once I clear the leg and have that feeling when I kick a body, back and back, then I will be able to measure time.

Despite soon serving more than a year away from the UFC, McGregor remains at No. 9 in the official lightweight ranking. He has been champion of Featherweight and Lightweight in the same promotion, one of the most prestigious in the world.

He holds the record for being the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles from two different divisions at the same time. One of those belts, the Featherweight, was won with a surprising victory in just 13 seconds against Brazilian José Aldo at UFC 194.
