CONOR McGREGOR has hinted he is making tremendous progress in his bid to return to the Octagon following a horror injury.
McGregor broke his leg at UFC 264 in July and subsequently lost to rival Dustin Poirier in their trilogy fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
But the Notorious has shared a promising injury update on his personal Instagram account where he recorded his recent training session.
The Irish superstar put together a story in which he is showing off his bulky calf muscles as an indication he is closer to full fitness.
This comes after the 33-year-old bruiser said he’s “back on the feet” and feels like he could "kick right now".
McGregor recently told Adam's Apple: "I feel like I could kick right now.
"“I honestly feel like I could kick right now, but I’ve just got to listen to the doctors, listen to the people that are guiding me.
"That’s what I’ve done so far, I’ve committed myself to the work and I’m back on the feet. It’s so good to be back on the feet.

“I was upset for a little while, it’s not been easy. There’s been a few ups and downs on this, it’s probably one of the wildest things that’s ever happened to me in my life.
“It’s not been fun, smooth sailing, but I got through it. I’ve had my family, my close team by my side, and we’re getting there.
“Still a long way, I don’t want to get too ahead of myself, like I said I feel like I can kick now, I’m not advised to kick yet.
"But I’m gonna get back. You think a broken bone is gonna stop me? Think again.”
