McGregor just went through the gym to do some work, which is where he began his combat sports career before moving on to mixed martial arts and became the biggest attraction in sports history.

The future of McGregor's fight had been questioned after he suddenly announced his retirement from the sport several weeks ago, but then retracted that statement while continuing talks with the UFC during their next fight.
