Conor McGregor has insisted that he feels ready to kick again after showing off the gruesome ankle scarring that was left by surgery on his tibia and fibula.
The Irishman was unable to continue past the first round of his trilogy bout against lightweight rival Dustin Poirier in Las Vegas having suffered a brutal broken leg.
McGregor, 33, was back in the gym just days after the injury, and has told fans that he feels as if he is ready to kick again just 10 weeks after he was taken out of the Octagon on a stretcher.
While there has been talk over a fourth bout against Poirier or even a meeting with Jake Paul, McGregor is focusing on himself and his family as his recovery steps up.
He told YouTuber 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.”

Adding of his recent defeat: "I was upset for a little while. It has not been easy, you know what I mean?
"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. Know what I mean?
"It's not been full smooth sailing, but I've got through. I've had my family and my close team by my side. And we're getting there. Still a long away [to go]."
Giving his thoughts on McGregor's recovery, UFC President Dana White told the Australian Daily Telegraph: "Conor seems to be healing up pretty well.
"The question is: When can he start kicking again?
"If he could take kicks, then he'd be looking at a fight before the end of the year again, so it all depends on how fast that leg heals."
