According to Tim Simpson, Conor McGregor’s recently signed contract for a movie part will not prevent him from competing in the UFC again.
“It fits in perfectly,” Simpson told reporters.
“He’s still on track for a big return next year, but this fits in perfectly in the meantime.”
Conor McGregor will make his acting debut in the film “Road House” which stars Jake Gyllenhaal. It has been reported that the Dominican Republic will serve as the location for the filming of the movie.
In July of 2021, the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion suffered a leg break while competing against Dustin Poirier. The fight ended in a technical knockout loss. Since that time, he has been making progress in his recovery from the injury. According to Simpson, McGregor’s manager, the fighter is still expected to participate in 2023, despite the fact that he has a movie shoot scheduled for that year. This information comes from Simpson.
“The leg is still healing,” Simpson said.
“I think there’s a little bit more to go on that, but he’s been training like a madman twice a day, every day. He’s got his full team out there: the McGregor Fast team, all his health and fitness guys, physio, boxing, coaching. He’s been going hard. He’s been training super hard. He’s in amazing shape – just final adjustments to get that leg back where it needs to be.”
